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).
License Restrictions. We want you to get the most out of Atlas, but we do have a few important restrictions.
Compliance with Law; Other Prohibited Uses. You may not use the Software or Map Content for any unlawful purpose. You may not knowingly engage in the following use of the Software or Map Content, 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;
creating a false identity or otherwise attempting to mislead any person as to the identity or origin of any communication;
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, nor may you permit nor authorize any third party to: (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 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).
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.
Notification. You agree to promptly notify Mapbox in writing if you become aware of any misappropriation or unauthorized use of the Software or Map Content.
Caching and Redistribution. Map tiles must be accessed by you or your end-user customers directly through the Map Tiles API. Your services and applications may permit end-users to cache map tiles on their devices (e.g., laptop or desktop computers) for offline use. However, each device must populate its cache using direct requests to the Map Tiles API and content from a cache may only be consumed by a single end user. You may not redistribute map tiles, nor may you permit your end users to redistribute map tiles, including from a cache, by proxying, or by using a screenshot or other static image instead of accessing map tiles through the Map Tiles API. You may not scrape or download map tiles in bulk, nor may you permit your end users to scrape or download map tiles in bulk, for any purpose other than offline caching on a single end user’s device.
Feature Extraction. Unless expressly permitted by your Order, you may not trace map tiles or otherwise derive or extract data from map tiles, including satellite imagery, nor may you permit tracing of map tiles or other data extraction from map tiles.
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 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.
You. As between you and Mapbox, you own all right, title and interest to Your Data.
Mapbox. As between you and Mapbox, Mapbox owns and reserves all right, title and interest in and to the Software and Map Content.
Confidential Information. “Confidential Information” means any information relating to the actual or anticipated business or products (including the Software and Map Content), research or development, technical data, trade secrets or know-how of either party or its Affiliates. Confidential Information does not include information that (i) is publicly available at the time of disclosure or becomes publicly available through no fault of the disclosing party, (ii) is rightfully acquired without restriction from a third party who is not in breach of a confidentiality agreement, (iii) is independently developed without use of the disclosing party’s confidential information, or (iv) was already known without restriction at the time of disclosure.
Use of Confidential Information. Neither party will use the other’s Confidential Information, except as permitted under this Agreement. Each party and its employees and agents shall maintain the confidentiality of the other party’s Confidential Information, and shall not assign, license, publish, display, distribute, disclose or otherwise make available this information to any third party, except as permitted by this Agreement. 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 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 or Map Content other than as authorized by these terms; (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 written 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 we 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 or Map Content other than as authorized by this Agreement; (ii) Your Data; 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”) written 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.
