Version Date: November 21, 2019

The policy below governs your use, as an Exchange Provider, of the Snowflake Data Exchange when offering Datasets on the Snowflake Data Exchange.

Datasets

  • You may list Datasets on the Snowflake Data Exchange that can be filtered for a specific Exchange Consumer (“Personalized Share”), including data enrichment services, or free Datasets available to any Exchange Consumer (“Standard Share”).  You are solely responsible for your Datasets and Listing Information. 
  • Datasets should be live-updated at the most frequent logical refresh rate (ideally near-real-time)
  • Datasets should not be purely historical or a “sample”
  • Datasets should have global coverage (or regional coverage, but tagged appropriately)
  • Datasets should use common dimensions provided by Snowflake where appropriate
  • Changes:
    • Refrain from making breaking schema changes or replacing or deleting the share, as this will break consumer queries and the sample queries. If you do need to make these changes, please contact exchange-concierge@snowflake.com. Additionally, for Personalized Share, communicate changes to the customer before making them.

Promptly Respond to Exchange Consumers

You are expected to respond promptly to Exchange Consumers requesting access to your listings and share the requested data in a timely manner. Follow the below timelines for Personalized Shares.

  • Respond to Exchange Consumers within one business day of receiving a request to access a Personalized Share.
  • Share the appropriate Dataset with the Exchange Consumer within two business days of receiving the request unless there are extenuating circumstances.
  • If there is no prior agreement between you and Exchange Consumer governing the Dataset, enable sharing within two business days of executing an agreement with Exchange Consumer.
  • When Personalized Shares are used for enriching Exchange Consumer data, the following timelines apply:
    • Respond to Exchange Consumers within one business day of receiving a request to make use of a data enrichment service.
    • Enable sharing within two business days of receiving the input dataset from the Consumer.

Removing Shares

  • You may delist a Standard Share from the Snowflake Data Exchange at any time but must allow Exchange Consumers then accessing the Dataset to continue to access the Dataset for 30 days after the delisting of the Standard Share, unless otherwise required by law.  
  • You may drop a share created from a Standard Share after 30 days from when the Dataset was delisted.  You may delist a Personalized Share from the Snowflake Data Exchange and drop a share created from a Personalized Share at any time.

Use of Usage Metrics

Any usage metrics that Snowflake shares with you about Exchange Consumer’s use of your Datasets shall only be used for internal business purposes.  You may not use usage metrics for marketing, publishing benchmarks, or revealing adoption of the Snowflake Data Exchange.

Snowflake Rights

You acknowledge that:

Snowflake may delist and drop a Standard Share, delist a Personalized Share, or remove you from the Snowflake Data Exchange (temporarily or permanently) at any time in Snowflake’s sole discretion, without notice or liability.  

Snowflake has the right, but no duty or obligation, to monitor Standard Share Datasets for compliance with this policy, any agreements between you and Snowflake governing your use of the Snowflake Data Exchange, and applicable laws.  

Snowflake may accept or reject you (or any Dataset) for inclusion in the Snowflake Data Exchange in its sole discretion without liability. 

Snowflake retains control and discretion over the Snowflake Data Exchange, including the promotion, placement, and presentation of any Dataset or Listing Information in the Snowflake Data Exchange. 

Snowflake has no duty or obligation, express or implied, to display or otherwise include any Datasets or Listing Information in the Snowflake Data Exchange.
