A major reason we can keep this web site running as a free public resource is our income from licensing our digital boundary data, so although we make the boundaries available without charge to U.K. academic users our terms must be respected and the boundaries may not be passed on to others. All downloadable boundary material comes with an end user licence, which you must agree to adhere to before the system will initiate a download. Please respect the terms of the licence.
Please check the conditions of the licence for the particular material you want to use before re-using our data.
All works which use or refer to these materials should acknowledge this source by means of bibliographic citation. To ensure that such source attributions are captured for bibliographic indexes, citations must appear in footnotes or in the reference section of publications.
