About Us

We all know there is ‘data’ about practically everything and everybody, in abundance almost anywhere - until you actually try to get hold of a meaningful sample of that ‘data’ to analyse yourself, for your own purposes.

Our Company ethos is to create a real, up to date, rigorously tested and checked, comprehensive supply of data available in appropriate depth to anyone who needs it, for whatever purpose, and in a form which they can interrogate to their own agenda, with sensible conditions on use and publication.
