Depending on the size of the layer you selected and your internet speed, it could take some time before it gets loaded in QGIS. Please try to be patient and wait for the selected layer to load. Prompts for current and finished downloads have yet to be implemented..
When loaded, the layers are stored in memory. If you want to save a copy (file), you can Right click on the layer -> Export -> Save as.
We respect the license of the original source, each data source and data files have a corresponding license file. License varies from different agencies, in most cases government data are public domain.
Philippine government data policy changes from the tenure of an administration to another, we want to ensure that what was public will remain public even if projects ran out of funds or there is a change in access policy.
