You are responsible for all use of the Services under your account, whether or not authorized, including any use of your API access tokens.
License. Subject to the terms of this Agreement (including paying all fees, and complying with the restrictions in Section 4), we grant to you, during the Term, a non-exclusive, non-transferable (except in accordance with Section 14.2), license in the Territory to access and use the Licensed Map Content, solely:
if a Public Use License is specified in your Order: in your Public Applications specified in your Order;

if a Mobile Application License is specified in your Order: in the Mobile Applications specified in your Order, for the number of Monthly Active Users stated in your Order (or for 200,000 Monthly Active Users if no number is specified).
Compliance With Law; Other Prohibited Uses. You agree to comply with all applicable laws, regulations, and third party agreements in your use of the Services. You may not knowingly engage in the following use of the Services, 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 Services 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;
hosting, transmitting or providing Mapbox with Protected Heath Information (as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act);
operating dangerous businesses such as emergency services or air traffic control, where the use or failure of the Services could lead to death, personal injury or significant property damage;
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.
Reverse Engineering; Derivative Works. You may not modify, create derivative works from, reverse engineer or attempt to derive any source code from the Services, except as we expressly permit in writing.
Print or Video Use. Unless expressly permitted in your Order, you may not use the Licensed Map Content in print or video media. 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.
Denial of Service. You may not knowingly use the Services in any manner that could damage, disable, overburden, or impair the Services or interfere with any other party's use and enjoyment of the Services, and agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to avoid any such use. In the event that your use is damaging, disabling, overburdening, or impairing the Services or interfering with another party's use and enjoyment of the Services, we may suspend or limit your use for the duration of the harmful use. In the event of such suspension or limit, we will notify you promptly and we will work with you to resolve the issue expeditiously.
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 Services. We reserve all rights in the Services 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. On mobile devices, you may only cache up to the limits set in the Mobile SDKs, and you may not circumvent or change those limits. 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.
In General. You may not use results from the Geocoding API (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 acknowledge that the proprietary databases powering the Geocoding APIs 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 the Geocoding API to ensure it is in compliance with this Section 4.8. The terms of this Section 4.8 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.
Temporary Geocodes. You may only use Temporary Geocodes in conjunction with a Mapbox map (i.e., a map that is composed of map tiles from the Maps API). You may not export or store Temporary Geocodes, nor may you permit any third party do so. You may not resell or re-syndicate results from the Temporary Geocoding API to other publishers or third parties (except to your end users or as an integrated part of your application). You may use latitude and longitude information from Temporary Geocodes to position results on a map, but you may not display the latitudes or longitudes directly to end users. You may only query the Geocoding API in Temporary Mode in response to human user queries and human app interactions; you may not perform bulk or automated Temporary Mode queries against the Geocoding API. You may not use point of interest results from the Temporary Geocoding API (a) for lead generation, advertiser targeting or advertising analysis; (b) to create or augment user profiles or audience segments based on or derived from points of interest results or (c) for geofencing—i.e., to give end users real-time mobile alerts or personalized content based on the end user’s current proximity to a point of interest (giving users content in response to searches or map interactions does not constitute geofencing).
Permanent Geocodes. Your order only includes Permanent Geocodes if they are expressly listed. You may store Permanent Geocodes. You may use Permanent Geocodes only for your own internal use. You may not resell, sublicense, or share Permanent Geocodes with any third party.
Directions, Distance, Optimized Trips and Map Matching APIs. You may only use Directions, Distance, Optimized Trips and Map Matching API results in conjunction with a Mapbox map. You may store Directions, Distance, Optimized Trips and Map Matching API results for up to but no more than 30 days.
prohibit use of the application by users younger than 13 years of age or disable information sharing for users younger than 13;
obtain end users' affirmative express consent before accessing their location (the automatic notifications in iOS and Android suffice);
allow users to opt out of location data sharing using one of the methods described in Mapbox’s developer documentation;
comply with any additional local requirements related to information access or sharing.
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 month. Unless expressly permitted by your Order, you may not otherwise trace Map Assets or otherwise derive or extract data from Map Assets, including satellite imagery, nor may you permit tracing of Map Assets or other data extraction from Map Assets. If you trace Mapbox Streets or Mapbox Terrain, you must comply with the applicable upstream licenses set forth on www.mapbox.com/about/maps/.
Geocoding Use. Points placed on a map through the places search function in the Studio dataset editor are Permanent Geocodes, and any use of such Permanent Geocodes must comply with the applicable restrictions set forth in Section 4.8.
End Users and Notification. You may not allow your end users or other third parties to use the Services in any way that would violate this Section 4 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 Services.
Fees. Fees for the Services and Licensed Map Content 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. For any Order that includes a Commercial Use License, you must report to email@example.com, within 15 days of the end of each calendar quarter, the number of Seats in use in each of your Commercial Applications. For any Order that includes an asset tracking license, you must report to firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 in and to Uploads.
Mapbox. As between you and Mapbox, Mapbox owns and reserves all right, title and interest in and to the Services.
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 Services.
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. 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, 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’ll 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 Services infringe a copyright or misappropriates a trade secret of any third party.
We’ll have no obligation to indemnify you for any Claim to the extent it is based on (i) your use of the Services other than as authorized by this Agreement; (ii) your failure to use updated or modified Services that we make available to you that would have helped avoid or mitigate the Claim; (iii) your continued use of the Services 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 Services with equipment, devices, software, systems, or data that we didn’t supply (subparts (i)–(iv) may be referred to collectively as “Indemnity Exclusions”).
If your use of the Services 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 Services; (ii) replace or modify the Services so that they are non-infringing and include substantially similar functionality as the original Services; 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 Services) and provide a pro-rata refund of any pre-paid fees for the period of service following termination.
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 third party claim, action, suit or demand, to the extent that it is based on (i) your use of the Services other than as authorized by this Agreement; (ii) content you submit or post to the Services; or (iii) an Indemnity Exclusion.
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.

Termination. Either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party fails to cure a material breach of the Agreement within 30 days of notice from the other party. If you terminate for breach, Mapbox will refund any fees for unused Services that you have paid for in advance. Termination will not alter your obligations to pay all fees and charges due to Mapbox as of and through the date of termination.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may assign this Agreement in its entirety, upon written notice to the other but without the requirement to obtain consent, in connection with a merger, acquisition, corporate reorganization, or sale of all or substantially all of that party’s business or assets to which this agreement relates. Any other attempt to assign is void.
No Waiver. Neither party will be treated as having waived any rights by not exercising (or delaying the exercise of) any rights under this Agreement.
No Agency. This Agreement does not create any agency, partnership or joint venture between the parties.
No Third Party Beneficiaries. This Agreement does not confer any benefits on any third party unless it expressly states that it does.
Amendments. Any amendment must be in writing, signed by both parties, and expressly state that it is amending this Agreement.
Entire Agreement. This Agreement supersedes all other agreements between the parties relating to its subject matter. Under no circumstances will the terms, conditions or provisions of any purchase order, invoice or other similar document issued by you in connection to this Agreement alter or add to the rights, duties or obligations of the parties under this Agreement, regardless of any failure of Mapbox to object to such terms, provisions, or conditions.
Severability; Interpretation. If any term (or part of a term) of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or unenforceable, the rest of the Agreement will remain in effect.
Governing Law; Venue. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement will be governed by California law, excluding California's conflict of laws rules, and will be litigated exclusively in the federal or state courts of San Francisco County, California, USA. The parties consent to personal jurisdiction in those courts.
