Institutional License: generic version of the MAT portal and Databases

  1. To access the full version of MAT portal and Databses, users from developed countries may purchase an Institutional License that provides access to the generic, non-customised version of the MAT portal. This type of subscription is for users who do not wish to disseminate access to the portal and Databases to third parties outside the organisation or institution.
  2. The holder of an Institutional License is provided by ITC with a user ID (username) and password to access the MAT portal and Databases. An Institutional License subscription only provides access to the MAT portal and Databases for the subscribing institution license holder. User ID’s (usernames) and passwords are confidential and should not be published, disseminated or shared with any third party, but can be distributed or shared within the subscribing organisation or institution. In order to simplify access to MAT within an organisation holding an institutional license, the holder of an institutional licence can choose the institutional user management option where all users with same email extension (e.g. @intracen.org) can individually register themselves to access MAT with their own user ID (username) (e.g. marysmith@intracen.org or johnbrown@intracen.org) and password and still face the same terms and conditions as defined for the institution.
  3. ITC reserves the right to change the User ID (username) and password of an Institutional License holder from time to time with one (1) month’s notice in writing by email, mail or fax.
  4. The holder of an Institutional License is authorised to use freely any data and analysis extracted from the MAT portal and Databases. However, in all cases the source of the data must be acknowledged and cited in the following way: "Trade Map (or Market Access Map, Investment Map and Standards Map, respectively), International Trade Centre, www.intracen.org/marketanalysis".

National License: customised version of the MAT portal and Databases

  1. Users in developed countries may purchase a National License subscription and may also purchase for an additional fee a customised MAT portal. To do this, users/National License holders will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with ITC that sets out conditions of access and the subscription fee.
  2. Holders of a National License may disseminate access to the MAT portal and Databases to third parties within the country in question. A customised version of the MAT portal is, in most cases referred to as "MAT {Country Name}", where the country name is the country in which the organisation/institution has its headquarters.
  3. The holder of a National License is provided with a confidential, primary user ID (username) and password for its customised version of the MAT portal. The holder of a National License is not authorised to publish, disseminate, sell or share its primary user ID (username) and password with any third parties other than those specified in the MOU between ITC and the National License holder.
  4. The holder of a National License is authorised to disseminate or sell access to its customised version of the MAT portal to third parties in its own country. Access by third parties is only authorised with a different, secondary user ID (username) and password obtained from the National License holder or ITC via a registration web page.
  5. ITC reserves the right to change the user ID (username) and password of a National License holder or any third party from time to time with one (1) month’s notice in writing , by email, mail or fax.
  6. The holder of a National License is authorised to pass on or sell any data and analysis extracted from its customised MAT portal. The holder of a National License is free to set a sales price for data and analysis extracted from its customised MAT portal, as well as for consulting services that it may provide. However, in all cases the source of the data must be acknowledged and cited in the following way: "Trade Map (or Market Access Map, Investment Map and Standards Map, respectively), International Trade Centre, www.intracen.org/marketanalysis".
