Looks like you're out of luck. From the transfac website:

        "We strongly support the collaborative nature of scientific
research that is the basis of our products."

However, words like those are cheap, but downloading transfac isn't.

It'll cost you 500 euro (per year, as an academic) to download the
'database', but it isn't clear if you can easily get access to the
data [1].

Perhaps there are some free alternatives or pirated copies of transfac
