A subset of the data provided by EUMETSAT is subject to licensing terms and conditions, in accordance with EUMETSAT's data policy. Information on EUMETSAT's data policy and licensed data.

To access these data you will need a Licence Agreement. Most licences are granted without charge, however in some circumstances, e.g. for commercial use of the data, a licence fee is charged.

The licensing process is part of the registration process. As you register, you will be prompted to submit licence relevant information and will be requested to accept online licensing terms and conditions accordingly. Depending on your intended usage of the data, an offline licensing procedure may be required.

This depends upon the delivery mechanism you have chosen. For example, to receive data via EUMETCast you need to set up a EUMETCast reception station. For details on technical requirements see EUMETCast set-up or direct dissemination.

You can log in to the Earth Observation Portal with your username and password and make any changes you require.

No, some types of data require a separate registration form.

For information on how we use the personal information you provide by completing a registration form for access to satellite data, see our Personal Data Policy in the Personal Data section on our Terms of Use page.

When you first create your EOP account, you will be asked to agree to our personal data policy.
