RIS Commercial Use Terms and Conditions

Many organisations use the RIPE Routing Information Service (hereafter RIS) to improve operations in their own networks.

However, in order to provide paid services, products, reports, or any other derivative based on RIPE RIS data to third parties, or to incorporate RIPE RIS data with other sources of data and package this as a commercial product, these additional conditions apply.

The RIPE NCC grants by default a revocable permission to all organisations that adhere to the following rules:

  • The organisation must accept the RIPE NCC Website and Publicly Available RIPE NCC Services Terms of Service
  • The organisation must acknowledge the RIPE NCC and RIPE RIS as the source of any RIPE RIS data used in the service or product provided by doing all of the following:
    • Including the RIPE NCC logo on the product/website/report, etc.
    • Including a link to RIPE NCC website, specifically https://www.ripe.net/ris
    • Including this boilerplate description of RIPE RIS:
      “The RIPE NCC collects and stores Internet routing data from several locations around the globe, using the Routing Information Service (RIS), established in 2001. RIS data can be accessed via RIPEstat, our “one-stop shop” for all available information about Internet number resources. RIPEstat uses individual widgets to display routing and other information."
  • The permission can be revoked at any time:
    • From any organisation that stops adhering to the above mentioned rules or abuses this permission in any way; or
    • From anyone if the RIPE NCC decides to stop granting this by-default permission
