Terms & Privacy


CUSTOMERS FOR DATA AND/OR SERVICES We make every effort to ensure reliability and accuracy in our work, whether in our products, services or reports or in material placed on our website, but cannot guarantee our results as to timing or accuracy. The results and opinions provided in our products, services and reports and the facts, calculations and data upon which they are based are believed to be correct at the time of publication. However, Acadata cannot accept any liability whatsoever for actions taken based upon any information that may subsequently prove to be incorrect. Users must satisfy themselves that our work is fit for their purpose. The information may be copied provided that you acknowledge its source, do not alter the context or otherwise mislead with the use made. The information may not be sold to any third party without our prior agreement.

Customers for our AcaData Housing Market Library are buying a licence to use the data valid during the period in which our charges are being paid. Customers may freely publish the results of analyses using the data specifying AcaData and Housing Market Library as the source of the data and Land Registry for England & Wales data and RoS for Scottish data. You are subject to the terms which we have agreed with these organisations. Should these terms require change, Acadata reserves the right to make appropriate changes to its terms with you and, if necessary, to cancel its agreement with you and refund your payment for data which you have not yet received, without further compensation. Neither our House Price Indices (LSL Acadata E&W HPI; Your Move Acadata Scotland HPI; Acadata Wales HPI) nor our AcaData Housing Market Library, nor our other housing market data howsoever described, are to be used for valuation of mortgage portfolios or other activity under regulatory approval. For any such use, please contact All rights are reserved.

Our Website complies with UK laws only, and the products and services offered on it are available only to a UK resident. Acadata is not responsible for any losses if our Website is not always available, nor if access to or from it or to or from us fails or if the information on the Website is incomplete or not up to date. Acadata is not responsible for loss or damage caused by using any third-party website to which our Website is linked, by abnormal and unforeseeable circumstances outside our reasonable control including those caused by third party viruses or malware, industrial action, problems with another system or network, mechanical or data-processing failures.

We advise you to check carefully before you agree to buy a product or service. Please remember that email is not a completely secure means of communication: it may be possible for others to intercept and read your messages. So if you choose to send us information by email, it is at your own risk.

STORAGE OF DATA We pursue the highest standards for the storage and protection of data. Currently, we use a third-party based in Switzerland for cloud storage. This party handles data under Swiss privacy laws that provide stronger protection than similar laws in the USA. The datacentres are currently located within the European Union. Principle No 8 of the Data Protection Act requires that personal data shall not be transferred to a country or territory outside the European Economic Area, unless the country or territory to which the data are to be transferred provides an adequate level of protection for personal data. The Commission has made positive findings of adequacy in relation to Switzerland.

We advise clients that data provided to us may, at our discretion, be stored in encrypted form in the secure backup facility that we have chosen, on servers within the EU or in Switzerland.

Like most websites, this one uses cookies. This policy explains how cookies are used on our website and how you can control them.
What are cookies? Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
What sort of cookies does this website use? Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. The cookies used on this website have been categorised based on those found in the ICC UK Cookie guide. A list of all the cookies used on this website by category is set out below:
Category 1: strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these, some services cannot be provided.
Category 2: performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
Does anyone else use cookies on this website? We may also use or allow third-parties to serve cookies that fall into the two categories above. For example, like many companies, we may use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic.
