License. Subject to your compliance with the terms of this Agreement (including paying all fees, and complying with the restrictions in Section 3), we grant you, during the Term, a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except in accordance with Section 14.2), license to use the Software and Map Content, solely in your Licensed Application for the number of Seats stated in your Order (or 25 Seats if no number is stated).
Compliance with Law; Other Prohibited Uses. You agree to comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and third party agreements in your use of the Software, Map Content and Site. You may not knowingly engage in the following use of the Software, Map Content or Site, and shall use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid any such use:
disseminating material that is abusive, obscene, pornographic, defamatory, harassing, grossly offensive, vulgar, threatening, or malicious;
aiding or implementing practices violating basic human rights or civil liberties. For the avoidance of doubt, you may not use the Software, Map Content or Site to assist in the creation of databases of identifying information for any government to abrogate any human rights, civil rights, or civil liberties of individuals on the basis of race, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or national origin;
creating a false identity or otherwise attempting to mislead any person as to the identity or origin of any communication;
operating dangerous businesses such as emergency services or air traffic control, where the use or failure of the Software or Map Content could lead to death, personal injury or significant property damage;
providing Mapbox with Protected Heath Information (as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act);
interfering, disrupting, or attempting to gain unauthorized access to any Mapbox accounts, services, or computer networks; or
disseminating, storing, or transmitting viruses, Trojan horses, or any other malicious code or program.
Distribution; Reverse Engineering. You may not: (i) access, disclose, or permit any third party to access the Map Content other than through the Atlas APIs; (ii) sublicense, sell, rent, lease, transfer, assign, disclose, or distribute the Software to third parties; (iii) host the Software for the benefit of third parties other than as expressly authorized by this Agreement; (iv) host the Map Content in a way that is accessible to the public; (vi) try to avoid or change license registration processes we implement; (vii) modify or create derivative works of the Software; (ix) disassemble, decompile, or otherwise reverse engineer the Software or Site or attempt to derive any of its source code, in whole or in part; (x) modify, obscure, or delete any proprietary rights notices included in or with the Software.
Print, Video, or Mobile Use. Unless expressly permitted in your Order, you may not use the Map Content in print or video media or mobile applications (i.e., applications for iOS, Android, or similar platforms). Notwithstanding this prohibition, you may use the Licensed Map Content in print and video advertising, marketing and educational materials that promote your applications and that show the Licensed Map Content incidentally in the context of the applications.
Asset tracking. Unless expressly permitted in your Order, you may not use the Software or Map Content in an application to locate or display a Tracked Asset.
Reservation of Rights. Except as expressly permitted herein, you may not redistribute, encumber, sell, rent, lease, sublicense, or otherwise transfer rights to or data derived from the Software or Map Content. We reserve all rights in the Software and Map Content not expressly granted to you.
Caching and Redistribution. You must access Map Assets only and directly through the Mapping APIs. You may cache Map Assets on end-user devices (e.g., laptops, smartphones, or tablets) for offline use, but each device must populate its cache using direct requests to the Mapping APIs and content from a cache may only be consumed by a single end user. You may not redistribute Map Assets, including from a cache, by proxying, or by using a screenshot or other static image instead of accessing Map Assets through the Mapping APIs. You may not scrape or download Map Assets in bulk for any purpose other than offline caching on a single end user’s device.
Tracing. You may use Studio or third-party software to trace Mapbox maps and produce derivative vector datasets (i) for non-commercial purposes and (ii) for OpenStreetMap. You may also use Studio's dataset editor to trace Mapbox maps for commercial purposes, but may only trace up to 100 points, lines, or polygons per year. Unless expressly permitted by your Order, you may not otherwise trace Mapbox maps or otherwise derive or extract data from Mapbox maps, including satellite imagery, nor may you permit tracing of Mapbox maps or other data extraction from Mapbox maps. If you trace Mapbox Streets or Mapbox Terrain, you must comply with the applicable upstream licenses set forth on www.mapbox.com/about/maps/.
Permanent Geocodes. Points placed on a map through the places search function in the Studio dataset editor are Permanent Geocodes.
You may not use such Permanent Geocodes to: (a) to develop a general database of locations or addresses for any neighborhood, city, state, country, or other such geographic region, or to develop any other general purpose digital map database; (b) to develop or test another geocoding application or API; (c) in connection with navigation products preinstalled or integrated into automobiles by auto manufacturers, auto electronic component manufacturers or auto system integrators; or (d) for in-flight navigation. You may use Permanent Geocodes only for your own internal use. You may not resell, sublicense, or share Permanent Geocodes with any third party.
You acknowledge that the proprietary databases from which Permanent Geocodes are derived contain confidential information and that they are the result of substantial investment and protected by database rights as meant in European Database Directive 96/9/EC. Without limiting the foregoing, Mapbox and our suppliers will have the right to enforce such rights as contractual rights arising under this agreement. Upon notice to you, Mapbox or our suppliers may audit your use of Permanent Geocodes to ensure it is in compliance with this Section 3.7. The terms of this Section 3.7.2 are intended for the direct benefit of Mapbox’s third party suppliers and may also be enforced directly by those suppliers.
Country Restrictions. You may not use data of Norway to create general purpose printed or digital maps, which are similar to the basic national products of the Norwegian Mapping Authority.
End Users and Notification. You may not allow your end users or other third parties to use the Software, Map Content or Site in any way that would violate this Section 3 if done by you, and you agree to take commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such use. You agree to promptly notify Mapbox in writing if you become aware of any misappropriation or unauthorized use of the Software, Map Content or Site.
Open Source Components. Where components of the Software or Map Content (such as libraries, map styles or fonts) are licensed under terms different from those in Section 2, it is so indicated by a file in the software or content directory named LICENSE.txt or LICENSE.md.
Fees. Fees are set out in your Order. All fees are stated and solely payable in U.S. Dollars. We will invoice you starting on the date specified in the Order. Unless otherwise expressly stated in your order, you agree to pay the fees in full, annually, in advance.
Payment. You must pay Mapbox within 30 days of receipt of an invoice, and you must pay via wire transfer, electronic ACH transfer, or check. All charges are non-refundable and not subject to setoff unless expressly stated otherwise, or otherwise provided by applicable law. You are solely responsible for any bank fees, interest charges, finance charges, over-draft charges, or other fees resulting from charges billed by Mapbox.
Taxes. Fees quoted do not include taxes, and you agree to pay all sales/use, gross receipts, value-added, GST, personal property or other tax (including any interest and penalties) with respect to the transactions and payments under this Agreement, other than taxes based on our net income or profits.
Reporting. You agree to report to firstname.lastname@example.org, within 15 days of the end of each calendar quarter, the number of Seats in use in each of your Licensed Applications. For any Order that includes an asset tracking license, you must report to email@example.com, within 15 days of the end of each calendar quarter, the number of Tracked Assets in your applications. You agree to preserve at your principal place of business during the Term, and for at least 1 year following the expiration or termination of this Agreement, complete and accurate records to support your calculation of Seats used and Tracked Assets under this Agreement (“Records”). The Records shall be maintained in accordance with generally accepted accounting procedures and principles. During the Term and for 1 year afterward, we may audit the Records to verify the accuracy of your reports. We will bear the cost of conducting such an audit unless it reveals a total underpayment error of 5% or more.
You. As between you and Mapbox, you own all right, title and interest to Uploads.
Mapbox. As between you and Mapbox, Mapbox owns and reserves all right, title and interest in and to the Software, Map Content and Site.
Feedback. Notwithstanding anything else, Mapbox may freely exploit and make available any and all feedback, suggestions, ideas, enhancement requests, recommendations or other information you provide relating to the Software or Map Content.
Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means information disclosed by a party to the other party under this Agreement that is marked as confidential or that would normally be considered confidential under the circumstances. Mapbox Confidential Information includes the Software and Map Content. Confidential Information does not include information that: (a) the recipient of the Confidential Information already knew; (b) becomes public through no fault of the recipient; (c) was independently developed by the recipient; or (d) was rightfully given to the recipient by another party.
Use of Confidential Information. Each party may use Confidential Information only to exercise its rights and fulfill its obligations under this Agreement. The parties and their employees and agents shall not disclose the other party’s Confidential Information to any third party except to Affiliates, employees and agents who have agreed in writing to keep it confidential, and each party shall protect the other party's Confidential Information with the same standard of care it uses to protect its own Confidential Information. Obligations to protect Confidential Information do not restrict either party from disclosures pursuant to the order of a court, administrative agency, or other governmental body, provided that reasonable notice is given to the other party, if allowed by law, to enable such other party to contest the order.
Publicity. We're proud to have you as a customer. During the term of this Agreement, you hereby grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-transferable license to use your trademarks, service marks, and logos solely for the purpose of identifying you as a Mapbox customer to promote and market Mapbox services. At any time, you may request that Mapbox cease any use of your marks that you consider objectionable, and Mapbox will cease such use as soon as reasonably practicable.
Representations and Warranties
Mutual Representations. Each party represents and warrants that (i) it has the full corporate right, power and authority to enter into this Agreement; and (ii) when executed and delivered by it, this Agreement will constitute its legal, valid and binding obligation, enforceable against it in accordance with its terms.
Disclaimer of Warranty. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION 10, THE PARTIES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE LICENSORS DO NOT MAKE, AND HEREBY DISCLAIM, ALL OTHER REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ACCURACY, AND NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTIES’ RIGHTS.
Indemnification by Mapbox
Subject to the limitations in this Section 11, we will indemnify, defend and hold you harmless from any costs, liabilities, damages or other amounts actually paid or payable to unaffiliated third parties (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) in connection with any third party claim, action, suit or demand (each, a “Claim”), to the extent that it is based on an allegation that the Software or Map Content infringe a copyright or misappropriates a trade secret of any third party.
We will have no obligation to indemnify you for any Claim to the extent it is based on (i) your use of the Software, Map Content or Site other than as authorized by this Agreement; (ii) your failure to use updated or modified Software or Map Content that we make available to you that would have helped avoid or mitigate the Claim; (iii) your continued use of the Software or Map Content after receiving notice from us to stop doing so in order to avoid further infringement or misappropriation; or (iv) the combination, operation or use of the Software or Map Content with equipment, devices, software, systems, or data that we did not supply (subparts (i)–(iv) may be referred to collectively as “Indemnity Exclusions”).
If your use of the Software or Map Content is, or in our reasonable opinion is likely to be, subject to a Claim, we may, at our sole option and at no charge to you (and in addition to our indemnity obligation to you): (i) procure for you the right to continue using the Software or Map Content; (ii) replace or modify the Software or Map Content so that they are non-infringing and substantially equivalent in function to the original Software or Map Content; or (iii) if options (i) and (ii) above are not commercially practicable in our reasonable estimation, we can terminate this Agreement and all licenses granted hereunder (in which event, you will immediately stop using the Software and Map Content) and refund the fees that you paid us for the then-current billing cycle.
THIS SECTION 11 SETS FORTH OUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE OBLIGATIONS, AND YOUR SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDIES, WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS OF INFRINGEMENT OR MISAPPROPRIATION OF THIRD PARTY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS.
Indemnification by You. Subject to Section 11.3, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold us harmless from any costs, liabilities, damages or other amounts actually paid or payable to unaffiliated third parties (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) in connection with any Claim to the extent that it is based on (i) your use of the Software, Map Content or Site other than as authorized by this Agreement; (ii) Uploads; or (iii) an Indemnity Exclusion, and you shall pay all damages and costs (including reasonable legal fees) finally awarded by a court of final appeal attributable to such claim.
Process. If a party entitled to indemnification (the “Indemnified Party”) becomes aware of any indemnifiable Claim, such party shall give the other party (the “Indemnifying Party”) notice of such Claim as soon as reasonably practicable. The Indemnified Party shall cooperate, at the expense of the Indemnifying Party, with the Indemnifying Party and its counsel in the defense or settlement of the Claim, and shall allow the Indemnifying Party to have sole control of the defense or settlement. Notwithstanding the prior sentence, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to participate fully, at its own expense, in the defense of such Claim, and any compromise or settlement of such Claim shall require the prior written consent of both parties hereunder, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Neither party will be bound by any settlement or compromise that it has not consented to in writing. The indemnity obligations of the Indemnifying Party shall be contingent on the Indemnified Party’s compliance with this process.
