A sale upon validation enables suppliers to control the use of their data. Buyers may not purchase files from them without their prior approval. Suppliers 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 buyers, as well as suppliers, with as many guarantees as possible.

  • For sellers, it ensures their ability to control their sales by being able to select buyers. 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 buyers, 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 buyer sends the supplier a purchase request about a particular offer. The two parties can then have a conversation to talk about the potential buyer’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 buyer specifies which license contract they would like to acquire, and formulates a purchase request.
  • At any time, the supplier may validate or refuse the purchase request.
  • As soon as the supplier validates the buyer’s purchase request, the buyer may begin the data acquisition procedure.

What is an instant sale?

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

  • For the supplier, no more need to handle buyer requests individually. By choosing this sale model, the supplier gives their immediate and prior approval for any purchase.
  • For the buyer, 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 offer must not contain personal information

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

  • The offer may only contain one license contract

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

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