Use of the Quantopian Store

The Quantopian Store provides access to certain third-party provided data and services through the Quantopian website (“Third-Party Services”). Third-Party Services may include (but are not limited to) access to additional data, increases to limits set for use on Quantopian services and applications developed by third party development parties.

Third-Party Services are licensed to you by the licensor of such service, data, or application (“Licensor”) and not Quantopian. For example, the data provided to you through the store will be data licensed by data partners. Quantopian will make such data available to you and collect fees on the Licensor’s behalf, but you will license such data or other Third Party Service directly from the Licensor (unless otherwise designated in the Quantopian Store).

However, the Third Party Services are not licensed under these QSS Terms of Use or the General Terms of Use.You agree that Quantopian is not responsible for any Third Party Service in the Quantopian Store.

Some Third Party Services may be made available to you at no charge while other Third Party Services must be purchased for a fee. You agree that you are solely responsible for all fees associated with purchases you make on the Quantopian Store. As used in this agreement “to purchase” and “to sell” the Third Party Service refer solely to purchasing or selling a license to use the Third Party Service; in no event will you, as the purchaser of a Third Party Service, acquire any intellectual property rights in the Third Party Service despite the shorthand language being used.

The use of the Third-Party services purchased through the Quantopian Store is personal to you and you alone. The services are meant to be used on the Quantopian website. More specifically, services purchased for use through the Quantopian Store are meant for use only by the user of the purchasing account, on the Quantopian website.

Fees and Purchase Terms

The License Terms., and not this QSS Terms of Use, will govern the Third Party Services and be directly between you and Licensor.
