Glossary of Licensing Terms

Within the Licence Agreements and within the Licensing Centre, we use a lot of different licensing terminology and definitions. To help you understand the licensing terms, we have developed a simple glossary. Below we have listed the licensing terms that we are most commonly asked about.

You can access further definitions by using the alphabet search facility below. If you need further clarification or you don't find a term you are looking for please contact us.

High Use Threshold

If an End User's Transactions enabled by Website Use (Website Transactions) are estimated to exceed the "High Use Threshold" in a licence fee year, an additional fee (the High Use Licence Fee) is payable. The High Use Threshold is 10 million Transactions.

If the Organisation Use licence fee has been paid, High Use Licence fees are not payable. See paragraphs 2(h) to 2(m) of Schedule 2 for more details.
