Our goods and services are designed to help companies develop products for the automotive aftermarket. We spend a lot of time developing our scan data packs trying to deliver a premium product at a very competitive price. You are purchasing the right to use this data for your product development, not the data pack itself. The distribution or re-sale of this product is not permitted as it makes it very hard for us to help you in the future. If you are issuing our data outside your company to support your product development, please ensure you have a suitable NDA with the receiving company to protect yourselves and us too.

Any questions feel free to call us- we are pretty easy to deal with.
