I believe TRANSFAC is proprietary.  An alternative might be Jaspar.

  The JASPAR CORE database contains a curated, non-redundant set of
  profiles, derived from published collections of experimentally defined
  transcription factor binding sites for eukaryotes. The prime difference
  to similar resources (TRANSFAC, etc) consist of the open data acess,
  non-redundancy and quality.  

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
