Usage Guidelines for Gartner Services
Research Documents – Internal Use (within your company)
We welcome you, the Licensed User, to open as many Gartner Research documents as you like: for your personal use within your job and within the scope of your Service.
While you may print one hard copy of a Gartner Research document for your personal use in your job role, as a general rule Gartner Research documents cannot be shared:
- With individual non-Users; or
- Via email, intranet posting, or other information storage & retrieval systems.
If your job role requires you to share Gartner Research internally with your colleagues, you may:
- Briefly summarize* the Gartner Research in your own words for your project team or senior-level decision makers (attributing Gartner as the source).
- Include small excerpt* of Gartner Research (e.g., a few lines of text not to exceed 5 sentences, a paragraph, or a specific graphic) in an internal report or presentation (attributing Gartner as the source).
*NOTE: This is an acceptable use so long as it is:
- not done on a systematic or routine basis (e.g., by a Licensed User who consistently distributes a periodic summary or excerpt of Gartner Research or who leverages a company business process that allows non-Users to routinely approach the Licensed User to meet their Gartner Research needs);
- limited to an internal audience only of no more than 15 people; and
- not done with the intent or effect of avoiding the purchase of additional User licenses.
