[Talk-GB] Trig Point references

I've noticed that some trigpoints are tagged with  a reference prefixed
TPUK. This is a reference to the numbers assigned by the website
http://trigpointing.uk/ which has the following text as a footer: "The
TrigpointingUK database is owned and maintained by Ian Harris (Teasel)"
That doesn't sound very open to me - does anyone know what permission we
have to use this data? The OSM wiki says we *can* use it but who has the
text of  the explicit permission (or licence) and shouldn't we have  a
system of being able to reference(hyperlink) permissions such as these from
the wiki (just to be safe)?

Apologies if there is a talk-gb thread buried in the archives relating to
