How to download Quandl SCF database locally for free?

In the "How to import Futures" algo you have the following comments 

// QuantConnect has a special deal with Quandl giving you access to Stevens Continuous Futurs (SCF) for free. 
//If you'd like to download SCF for local backtesting, you can download it through Quandl.com.

I was wondering if this meant I can download the database for FREE to my local machine?

If so could you provide me with the API KEY that I would need to use to download this data?

Thanks

You can use SCF through QuantConnect but you cannot download any data as its against our terms of service.

We also have real futures contracts now at tick resolution; you don't need to use SCF daily continuous bars.

Do you know if the SCF data through QuantConnect OR the futures contracts data at tick level, take into consideration price gaps from rolling?

We do not roll the contracts at this time. The data is presented as raw contracts which can be bought and are delisted / holdings are liquidated at the time of expiry. Later once the new code out of beta we'll add rolling.
