We would encourage users to use this service to add extra information to their own sites for the benefit of their users. We understand that this information may be cross-referenced with information from others sources, but request only that the feeds from the FCO are not materially altered and that the information contained and the provenance of that information remains clear. Feeds from this site can be added to your own website or application, but a charge cannot be levied for FCO information without added value (the addition of other information sources for example) being created. We would also ask that those who do use the feeds send us the links so that we can highlight best practice. By clicking on the "SIGN UP" button, you accept these usage terms.
