9. Complaints

Please contact to notify us of anything on the Mapillary Services that infringes other rights (like copyright, counterfeiting, insult, invasion of privacy) or if you discover that any Mapillary Services content (such as User Content) promotes crimes against humanity, incites racial hatred or violence or concerns child pornography.

10. Third-Party Content

We may provide information about third-party products, services, activities or events, or we may allow third parties to make their content and information available on or through the Mapillary Services (collectively, “Third-Party Content”). We provide Third-Party Content as a service to those interested in such content. Your dealings or correspondence with third parties and your use of or interaction with any Third-Party Content are solely between you and the third party. Mapillary does not control or endorse any Third-Party Content, and can make no guarantee of its accuracy. You are solely responsible for compliance with any applicable terms that govern Third-Party Content.

11. Additional Terms for Developers

Certain Mapillary Services, including the Mapillary API, Mapillary vector tiles, and the MapillaryJS library, (“Developer Tools”) are tools we offer to software developers who work on building map platforms, geospatial tools, and location-based services (“Developer”). If you are a Developer, this Section 11 applies to you.

You must register any application you intend to use with our Developer Tools with us here to obtain a client_id. Each application must have a unique client_id, and must be designed to provide products or services that materially supplement those provided via the Mapillary Services (and not to merely redistribute Content or create applications that substantially replicate the functionality of Mapillary Services). You must ensure your application is using the most current version of the Developer Tools. You may not make any promises or warranties on our behalf or allocate any responsibility to Mapillary.

Mapillary reserves the right to throttle usage, revoke client_ids, or exercise any other rights we have under these Terms if we suspect you are misusing the developer resources or if we otherwise believe necessary to protect our or any third party’s rights or interests. You authorize us to monitor your use of Developer Tools to ensure compliance with these Terms. You will not seek to block or otherwise interfere with our monitoring efforts, and you authorize us to use technical means to overcome any methods you may use to block or interfere with our monitoring.

You must adhere to the attribution requirements set forth below and as applicable to any User Content provided by others that you obtain.

You also agree that the Mapillary Parties will have control of the defense or settlement, at Mapillary’s sole option, of any third-party Claims. This indemnity is in addition to, and not in lieu of, any other indemnities set forth in a separate written agreement between you and Mapillary or the other Mapillary Parties.
