Baymard Premium License & Usage Terms

  • Active subscription: The full Baymard Premium research catalog, toolset, and any downloaded reports are intended only for the active users on your active account. Inactive users or inactive accounts (incl due to failed renewal) are not allowed to access or store any parts of the Baymard Premium research catalog (incl prior downloaded and printed materials or files).
  • Only employees in the same legal entity: The license only cover creating users for full-time employees within the same legal entity. The license does not cover creating account for, or sharing parts of the research in other ways with anyone outside the legal entity (this includes, but is not limited to, sharing with external partners, vendors, students, external developers, designers, etc.). “Group purchase” companies and schemes are not allowed in any form, and such accounts will be closed immediately without any refund.
  • “Enterprise license”: companies that are on a plan that have a “enterprise license” (instead of the more common “company license”), are allowed to use their Baymard account for employees within the entire enterprise organization. This means that parent organizations that own e.g. multiple subsidiary e-commerce sites or brands are allowed to use that one enterprise Baymard account for all the subsidiaries. The enterprise license only cover all direct subsidiaries of the parent company – sharing with close partners, clients, developers, agencies, etc., is not allowed.
  • One person per user profile: Each Baymard Premium user profile can only be used by one employee, and only of the organization that pays for the Premium account.
  • No republication/paraphrasing/sharing etc. – in short: Baymard Premium access is for people who want to improve their own or their client’s site UX. Baymard Premium is not for people seeking inspiration for their own ‘content production’ or ‘content marketing’ efforts as none of the Baymard Premium content may be used or published elsewhere in any format, incl., articles, white papers, workshop materials, in-person presentations, webinars, etc. Limited citations of the Baymard Premium research may be granted upon request, but require written preapproval. Write us at info@baymard.com. If creating UX-related content (content marketing) is the main objective, we don’t recommend you purchase acces as Premium cannot be used for this. (We instead recommend to spend 32,000+ hours conducting your own large-scale research).
  • No republication/paraphrasing/sharing etc – the legalese version: Without first having a written consent from Baymard Institute no one are allowed to publish any Baymard content, in full or partially. This includes, but is not limited to, publishing paraphrasings, superficial rewrites, heavily inspired, repackaged, or resold Baymard content, along with any form of sharing accounts outside of the licensed company. (Failure to comply on this “no sharing” aspect will mean: 1) immediate closure of all Baymard accounts without a refund, 2) possible legal prosecution of violation of copyright and/or violation of the US registered trademark “Baymard”.

Refund policy

We offer a 14 days “no questions asked” refund for all research purchases. If you’re not satisfied with the research then simply write us an e-mail at info@baymard.com with your invoice number and we’ll transfer the full amount back to your credit card account.
