Hosted Licencing FAQ

How are Controlled Substances Squared Hosted and Webservices licenced?

The licence is a yearly licence. A basic access fee is charged based on the Jurisdictions you want to check, you then pay a small additional fee per user. This avoids the risk of open-ended costs a pay ‘per check’ model brings. It also allows you to licence only what you need rather than jurisdictions you will never use. We do also offer a pay per compound per jurisdiction “credit” based system (see further below) for certain use cases, like checks from cloud based ELNs, however in general this is less cost effective.

Is this the same for Enterprise Licences?

No. Licencing if very different, please contact us for details of our On-premises Enterprise pricing. 

Can Users share login details?

No, these are named users. You must buy licences for all the users you wish to have access the system.

Is there a limit on the number of compounds I can check?

Yes, there is a daily ‘Fair Use’ limit. The limit is set at the company level and applies across all your users. The limit is determined by the number of users you licence, the more users the higher the limit. This limit can be set to allow larger compound collections of hundreds of thousands, or even millions of compounds to checked over a reasonable time frame. Please contact us with your requirements for a quote.

Does this limit apply to webservices?

Yes, the webservice calls count towards the daily limit. When the limit is reached the webservice returns an error code related to the limit. The webservice has a separate logon from users and does not have access to the CS2 Front End.

What is the performance of webservice and where do I get more information?

1000 compounds should take 1-2 minutes to return results, depending on the jurisdictions checked. See our webservices section for more information.

Do you offer a Trial or Evaluation?

Yes, you will be able to run a limited number of checks per day to see how the system works. This can also include the webservice. Please contact us to request a trial

Do you offer a “Pay per compound per Jurisdiction” model?

We do also offer a pay per compound per jurisdiction “credit” based system (see further below) for certain use cases (like checks from ELNs) – this is limited to webservice calls only. However generally this is not cost effective for companies wishing to check larger compound collections of 10Ks of compounds and the annual licence fee with a daily check limit.

Can I resell, trade or freely give away checks and information obtained from the service?

No. The Controlled Substance Determinations and other information from the website and service may not be used or disseminated outside of your company. There are a few limited exceptions to this which are outlined in our Terms and Condition, the relevant section for this is given below

"Subject to any express agreement to the contrary, Users may not reproduce, copy, duplicate, trade or resell the Services, or information obtained from the Services, outside of their company. This includes but is not limited to Controlled Substance Determinations.

Brokers, agents and resellers

Where the User is a broker or agent selling chemicals made by a third party manufacturer/supplier, it may use the services and information for its own internal use to ensure compliance, but must not share the information on bulk with the third party supplier. Examples of bulk sharing could include (but are not limited to) providing a list of all the chemicals that are controlled (or not controlled), or providing the details of how a subset of chemicals are controlled. Where a supplier requires further details the User should direct the third-party manufacturer/supplier to Controlled Substances Squared and also enquire about our partner program.

Where the User is supplying a controlled substance to its end customer it may freely disclose information about the controlled substances as needed to obtain and verify permits / licences, as long as the source of the determination is given as Controlled Substances Squared by Scitegrity

Furthermore the user may not publicly display the information on its website or catalogues, however it may state that compounds are “checked and verified” by Controlled Substances Squared before shipping and include a link and reference to www.scitegrity.com on its website.

The Broker, Agent or Reseller may also at Scitegrity’s discretion participate in our Partner program which provides additional benefits.

Compound Manufacturers

Where the User is selling chemicals that it has directly manufactured and supplies to end customers, it may display the controlled status directly on its website and may also pass this onto third party brokers, agents and resellers.

Contract Research Organisations (CRO)

Where the User is working under contract to produce or test chemicals for the User’s client(s), the User may check the compounds it has been specifically asked by the client to handle, so long as the intention of the contract did not include determining controlled statuses. If compounds are found to be controlled, the User may inform the client of the controlled status, as long as the source of the determination is given as Controlled Substances Squared by Scitegrity. In addition, the CRO may at Scitegrity’s discretion participate in our Partner program which provides additional benefits"
