A sale upon validation enables providers to control the use of their data. Acquirers may not purchase files from them without their prior approval. Providers are entirely free to accept or reject any request for purchase. 

Why is sale upon validation offered by default?

Dawex encourages sales upon validation in order to provide acquirers, as well as providers, with as many guarantees as possible.

  • For providers, it ensures their ability to control their sales by being able to select acquirers. They therefore do not run the risk of selling information to competitors or undesired organizations. This sales model also enables them to ensure that buyers have indeed chosen a license contract that matches their profile.
  • For acquirers, it offers an opportunity to discuss with sellers before making a purchase, without having to make an immediate commitment.

How does a sale upon validation work?

The acquirer sends the provider a purchase request about a particular offering. The two parties can then have a conversation to talk about the potential acquirer’s questions, and to determine the most suitable license contract, if more than one is available.

The acquisition takes place through several steps:

  • During the discussion, the acquirer specifies which license contract they would like to acquire, and formulates a purchase request.
  • At any time, the provider may validate or refuse the purchase request.
  • As soon as the provider validates the acquirer’s purchase request, the data acquisition procedure may begin.

What is an instant sale?

Depending on the nature of the offer, Dawex may provide the provider the option for an instant sale:

  • For the provider, no more need to handle acquirer requests individually. By choosing this sale model, the provider gives their immediate and prior approval for any purchase.
  • For the acquirer, this guarantees that the purchase will be possible, and that they will be able to obtain the data quickly.

In what cases can I choose an instant sale?

The instant sale option is not available for all offers. In order for the sales process to be valid in technical, contractual, and regulatory terms, some constraints are imposed:

  • The offering must not contain personal information

The provider must be fully aware of the profile of the acquirer to whom the data is to be transferred. By accepting the sale, the provider assumes responsibility for their choice.

  • The offering may only contain one license contract

This restriction protects the provider, who benefits from the certainty of having a license contract adapted for all acquirer profiles.

If your offering meets these criteria, Dawex gives the choice between these two sales models automatically.
