I see no grant of rights.

A copyright statement is not required for copyright protection on a
work created since 1989, so copyright protection is automatic.  In the
absence of an explicit grant of rights, no rights are granted.
Leaving only Fair use / Fair dealing rights to the data.

Is there a grant of rights elsewhere?  It should really be in the
license.  They should really publish under PDDL.
