Purchasing and usage terms

VAT (Value Added Tax)
Purchasers located in the UK will be charged VAT at current UK VAT rates. Purchasers located in the European Union (EU 27) and are VAT registered will be required to provide their VAT number. Incorporated purchasers with a VAT number in the EU, will not be charged VAT. Non-VAT registered purchasers from the EU will be charged VAT at current UK VAT rates (EU rule: VAT is paid in the country of production). Purchasers located outside the EU will not be charged VAT (Out of Scope of VAT).

Payment must be made for the full amount indicated on the invoice or checkout process. Any local taxes that may apply in various tax jurisdictions around the world must be borne by the purchaser. We reserve our right to refuse or cancel an order if such taxes are not paid by the purchaser. We also reserve the right to refuse or cancel orders for whatever reason we deem appropriate.

Once you place an order for a product listed on our website, payment for that product becomes due and owing immediately. Once the order is paid you will gain access to the CGC (or other product/service). The CGC access is valid for one year. There is no refund of any moneys once access to the CGC is gained by the purchaser.

Licensing and fair usage

The process for purchasing a subscription to the CGC is clearly identified in the main part of the website. All purchases are requested to respect the licensing of their subscription to the CGC. CBA reserves the right to refuse approving a potential subscriber for any reason it deems appropriate. CBA will not be required to offer any explanations for refusing to approve a potential subscriber.

Access to the CGC is only permitted to subscribed persons. The sharing of login details with anyone else is prohibited. Access to the database is only provided on up to two devices simultaneously. If the same subscriber is logged in in two devices and attempts a third device login at the same time, he will be given a message that will require him to log out of one other device to proceed.

CBA reserves the right to introduce any means that would secure adherence to the licence agreement. These means may include electronic tags etc. which would facilitate the monitoring when and how a subscriber access the database. Also, CBA reserves the right to pursue any licence infringements by purchasers via legal means. If CBA has evidence that the login details have been shared with persons other than the designated subscriber, the subscription will be terminated with no refund of any fees. Subscriptions are not transferable under any circumstances.

As part of a “fair usage” concept, we expect subscribers to use the database in the normal course of their business. This means that most professionals will visit certain markets that interest them and download relevant data and information. Statistics on current users has shown that on average, a user will visit and explore between 5 and 8 countries. In this light and in order to safeguard fair usage of the database and avoid potential data harvesting, we have limited the number of downloads per day per subscriber to 15 (15 PDFs and 15 Excels). If a subscriber needs to exceed this number of downloads, we have a process in place, whereby the subscriber may request more than 15 downloads by contacting us directly. We will respond to all subscribers that have a legitimate need to download data more than 15 times.

For cement manufacturers associations and other similar national or international bodies associated with cement, CBA cannot provide a single licence subscription. Such associations must contact us for information regarding multi-licence agreements.


You may not assign, sublicense, or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these Terms. If any provision of these Terms is found to be invalid for any reason, the invalidity of that provision will not affect the remaining provisions of these Terms, which shall remain in full force and effect. Failure by either of us to exercise any right or remedy under these Terms does not constitute a waiver of that right or remedy.
