This Agreement is made on the 1st day of April 2004 between: 
(1) 
The Secretary of State acting through Ordnance Survey whose principal place of 
business is at Romsey Road, SOUTHAMPTON, UK, SO16 4GU 
(Ordnance Survey); and 
(2) 
The Office for National Statistics of 1 Drummond Gate, LONDON, SW1V 2QQ 
(Partner). 
Background 

Ordnance Survey is the national mapping agency of Great Britain. Ordnance Survey 
licenses a range of mapping products to businesses, local and central government 
bodies, and consumers. 

Partner wishes to use the Ordnance Survey Data to develop and produce products 
and services which it will supply to its own customers and distributors. 

Ordnance Survey and Partner agree to enter into this framework agreement so as to 
provide for the licence of Ordnance Survey Data under Appendices which the 
parties will execute from time to time. 

This Agreement will operate between Crown Bodies and therefore is not legally 
binding. In the event of a dispute between the parties, the dispute would not be 
adjudicated in a court of law. The Agreement is a business arrangement, but it 
acknowledges the goodwill between the parties and relies upon a spirit of 
cooperation for its implementation to achieve mutual benefit.

copies of any necessary records. Without prejudice to Clause 11.3, Partner shall 
provide Ordnance Survey with reasonable assistance to enable such inspection and 
audit to take place, the frequency of which will not be more than once a year unless 
Ordnance Survey reasonably believes Partner has failed to comply with the security, 
financial and/or intellectual property aspects of this Agreement.  
11.3 
If the audit (or any other periodic inspection not being a full audit) shows that 
Partner’s accounting as to the calculation of the Licence Fee due under this 
Agreement, and/or any other financial matter, is incorrect, Partner hereby 
undertakes promptly to rectify the defect in the amount accounted for and/or the 
accounting system defect as the case may be. In the event that either party ceases

partner’s requirements, whether operationally, functionally, technically, accurately or 
otherwise. It is Partner’s responsibility to ensure that Ordnance Survey Data is fit for 
Partner’s intended use or purpose. Partner acknowledges that if it does not take 
Ordnance Survey Updates then, over time, the operation, technology, functionality 
and accuracy of the Ordnance Survey Data is likely to degrade and may not meet 
any relevant Specification. 
13.4 
Ordnance Survey excludes, to the fullest extent permissible by law and except as

any electronic transmission of Data. Ordnance Survey gives no warranty or 
undertaking as to the uninterrupted continuity of the Ordnance Survey web site.  
13.6 
Nothing in this Agreement shall have the effect of excluding or limiting the liability of 
either party for: 
13.6.1 
death or personal injury to the extent it results from its negligence, or 
that of its employees or agents in the course of their engagement 
hereunder; or 
13.6.2 fraud. 
13.7 
Neither party shall be liable to the other in contract, tort (including negligence) or 
otherwise for any special, indirect or consequential losses or damages, provided 
that neither this Clause 13.7 nor any other provision of this Agreement shall prevent 
Ordnance Survey from recovering from Partner all amounts lawfully due in respect 
of all infringements and breaches of Intellectual Property Rights or Confidential 
Information by Partner or by any other party which has obtained Ordnance Survey 
Data from Partner. 
13.8 
Subject to Clause 13.6: 
13.8.1 
Ordnance Survey’s total liability (whether in contract, tort (including 
negligence) or otherwise) under or in connection with each Appendix will 
not at any time exceed an amount equal to the limitations on 
Ordnance Survey’s liability set out in such Appendix or, in the absence 
of such a provision, an amount equal to the Licence Fees or Royalties 
payable under such Appendix in respect of the twelve (12) month period 
immediately prior to the cause of action for the latest such claim or 
where less than twelve (12) months have passed by that time, in respect 
of the first twelve (12) month period of such Appendix; and

and aggregate liability (whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or 
otherwise) shall be limited to an amount equal to the guaranteed 
minimum royalty payable in respect of the year of this Agreement which 
is current at the time the cause of action for such claim arises.  
13.9 
Partner will be liable for and will indemnify and keep Ordnance Survey (and its 
employees, directors, subcontractors and agents) indemnified from and against any 
and all claims, demands, proceedings, costs, charges, damages, loss and liability 
whatsoever incurred or suffered by Ordnance Survey whether direct, indirect or 
consequential (including without limitation any economic loss or other loss of profits, 
business or goodwill) arising out of any dispute, claims or proceedings brought 
against Ordnance Survey in connection with an alleged infringement or breach of 
Intellectual Property Rights or Confidential Information by Partner or by any other 
party which has obtained Ordnance Survey Data from Partner. 
13.10 
Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Agreement, all references in this

14  Events beyond the parties’ control 
Save for any payment obligation due hereunder, neither party will be responsible for 
any delay or failure in carrying out obligations under this Agreement if the delay or

party. In such circumstances (which may include however shall not be limited to war, 
civil war, terrorist attack, fire and flood) the affected party will notify the other of any 
such likelihood as soon as possible. Where the preceding occurs the affected party

Ordnance Survey. 
18.2 
The Partner shall be entitled to provide Ordnance Survey Data to Sub-licensees,

Ordnance Survey shall be entitled to assign, transfer or novate the benefits and 
obligations of this Agreement to any government body or, in the event of the transfer 
of all or any of Ordnance Survey’s activities or functions to any other entity, to the 
entity to which Ordnance Survey’s functions have been transferred. Partner hereby 
expressly agrees to the assumption of Ordnance Survey’s obligations under this 
Agreement by that entity, provided that entity can fulfil all necessary obligations. 
18.4 
The category of Permitted Subcontractor to which Clause 18.1 shall apply is one 
where the Permitted Subcontractor is working for the Partner for an amount in any 
twelve (12) months of more than thirty per cent (30%) of the Partner’s turnover

the entire agreement and understanding between the parties concerning the subject 
matter of this Agreement. This Agreement supersedes all understandings, 
representations and agreements made between the parties concerning such subject 
matter. However neither party seeks to exclude or limit liability for any fraudulent 
misrepresentations.  
22 Waiver 
22.1 
The waiving (which must be in writing and signed by an authorised representative of 
the relevant party) on a particular occasion by either party of rights under this 
Agreement does not imply that other rights will be waived. 
22.2 
If a party has a right arising from the other party’s failure to comply with an obligation 
under this Agreement and delays in exercising or does not exercise that right, such

Should any provision of this Agreement be held to be invalid or unenforceable, such 
provision shall be severed from the remainder of this Agreement, which will continue 
to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.

14.1 
The waiving (which must be in writing and signed by an authorised representative of

If a party has a right arising from the other party’s failure to comply with an obligation

right, such delay in exercising or failure to exercise is not a waiver of that right or 
any other right.

alone. Should any provision of this Contractor Licence be held to be invalid or 
unenforceable, such provision shall be severed from the remainder of this

extent permitted by law.
