Access to data


Can I share my login details with colleagues/friends so they can access ABS registered products?

No. Under the licensed user Terms and Conditions, you have agreed to ensure that your access details are not provided to another party. This applies to both individual and organisation licensed users. If a user is found to have breached this condition, individual and/or organisational licences may be revoked.



As a licensed user of a registered organisation is it OK to share access details with other members of the organisation who are not licensed users?

No. All individuals within a registered organisation who desire access to ABS registered products are required to register separately as users from that organisation. Organisations who purchase an Organisational Licence are allowed an unlimited number of registered users as part of that licence. Under the licensed user Terms & Conditions, you have agreed to ensure that your access details are not provided to another party. If a user or organisation is found to have breached this condition, Individual and/or Organisational Licences may be revoked.
