Six months after our launch it is now time for an update of our policies. While our previous terms regulated what we can do with photos contributed to Mapillary we decided that more clarity and detail would be helpful on things like how you are allowed to use the service, your rights to photos, how we handle your personal data, copyright infringement and more.
Our updated terms
Full text here (same URL as before). Our intentions are best described in the opening paragraph:
New points are:
- Commercial vs Non-commercial use
- Inappropriate behaviour
- Limitations on liability
- Account termination
- Copyright DMCA notices
The rights we give to OpenStreetMap and CreativeCommons as described on our legal page are now clearly referenced throughout the text under the term “Outbound Terms”. Nothing has changed there. Our use of incoming photos has not changed either but we are clearer on the point that you don’t transfer ownership by submitting a photo.
We take your personal data and your rights seriously. If you have any questions or thoughts, please send them to us directly by email.
