Last modified on: April 2, 2018

TO UNDERSTAND THESE TERMS

Please read these Terms of Service carefully. By accessing, using Map Your City or signing up for an account, you’re agreeing to these Terms of Service. This is a legal agreement.

We’ll start with the basics, including a few definitions that should help you understand this agreement. Map Your City is a service offered through the URL mapyour.city and through the mobile applications available in the Apple & Android Stores. Map Your City is owned and operated by ANDRS Projects Europe, a Netherlands private limited company (“Map Your City,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). Map Your City has employees, independent contractors, and representatives (“our Team”).

These Terms of Service and our Privacy Policy (collectively the “Terms“) govern your access to and use of Map Your City (“Map Your City”, “we,” “us,” or “our”) websites, services, and applications (collectively the “Service“). Your access to and use of the Service is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all visitors, users and others who access or use the Service. In other words this legal document defines the terms and conditions under which you’re allowed to use Map Your City and how we’ll treat your account while you’re a user of the Service. If you have any questions about our terms, feel free to contact us at legal@mapyour.city.

 

YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE

By accessing or using the Service you agree to be bound by these Terms. If you are using the Services on behalf of an organization or entity (“Organization”), then you are agreeing to these Terms on behalf of that Organization and you represent and warrant that you have the authority to bind the Organization to these Terms. In that case, “you” and “your” refers to you and that Organization.

Organizations or other third parties that have paid for a subscription to Map Your City (“Customers”) must separately agree to our Subscriber Agreement or enter into a written agreement with us (in either case, “Subscriber Agreement”). That Subscriber Agreement permits Customers to create and configure communities, invite users to join, and enjoy features as add-ons, or permits Customers to join communities and enjoy features as add-ons. If you have been invited to a community created by a Customer, you acknowledge and agree that the Customer controls your use of the Services in accordance with applicable local laws, including but not limited to adding or removing you from an Organization, enabling or disabling third-party integrations, managing permissions, and accessing, modifying, or removing content that you submit or upload to the Service.

You may use the Service only if you can form a binding contract with Map Your City, and only in compliance with these Terms and all applicable local, state, national, and international laws, rules and regulations. The Service may change from time to time as we evolve, refine or add more features to the Service, often without prior notice to you. In addition, Map Your City may temporarily or permanently stop providing the Service, or any features within the Service, to you or to users generally and may not be able to provide you with prior notice.

 

MODIFICATIONS

We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. If a revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you (for example via email to the email address associated with your account). Other changes may be posted to our blog or Terms page, so please check those pages regularly. By continuing to access or use the Service after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using the Service.

 

YOUR CONTENT

Some areas of the Service allow you to post or upload information, text, graphics, or other material (“Content” or, when posted by you, “your Content”), and to share your Content with others. You retain ownership of your Content, but there are many things that users may do with your Content, for example, copy it, modify it, re-share it, or broadcast it. Map Your City has no responsibility for that activity. You understand that publishing your Content on the Service is not a substitute for registering it with a copyright office,  or any other rights organization. Please consider carefully what you choose to share.

You agree not to post Content that: (i) may create a risk of harm, loss, physical or mental injury, emotional distress, death, disability, disfigurement, or physical or mental illness to you, to any other person, or to any animal; (ii) may create a risk of any other loss or damage to any person or property; (iii) seeks to harm or exploit children by exposing them to inappropriate content, asking for personally identifiable details or otherwise; (iv) may constitute or contribute to a crime or tort; (v) contains any information or content that we deem to be unlawful, harmful, abusive, racially or ethnically offensive, defamatory, infringing, invasive of personal privacy or publicity rights, harassing, humiliating to other people (publicly or otherwise), libelous, threatening, profane, or otherwise objectionable; (vi) contains any information or content that is illegal (including, without limitation, the disclosure of insider information under securities law or of another party’s trade secrets); (vii) contains any information or content that you do not have a right to make available under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationships; or (viii) contains any information or content that you know is not correct and current. You agree that any Content that you post does not and will not violate rights of any kind, including without limitation any intellectual property rights or rights of privacy. We reserve the right, but are not obligated, to reject and/or remove any Content that we believe, in our sole discretion, violates these provisions.

You retain full ownership to your Content, but you agree to grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, irrevocable, transferable, perpetual, royalty-free license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, reproduce, process, adapt, modify, publish, transmit, edit, translate, make derivatives, display and distribute such Content in connection with providing the Service to you and other users in accordance with your settings on the Service. In connection with providing the Service, we may modify or adapt your Content in order to transmit, display or distribute it over computer networks and in various media and/or make changes to your Content as are necessary to conform and adapt that Content to any requirements or limitations of any networks, devices, services or media.

We reserve the right at all times, but are not obligated, to remove or refuse to distribute any Content on the Service including your Content. We also reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as we reasonably believe is necessary to (i) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (ii) enforce the Terms, including investigation of potential violations, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of Map Your City, its users and the public.

You can opt out of certain types of notifications through your settings page.

Last updated on: April 2, 2018

TO UNDERSTAND THIS POLICY

Map Your City appreciates the interest you have shown in us by visiting our website, mapyour.city, by downloading our app or by subscribing to our Service. We’ll start by getting a few definitions out of the way that should help you understand this policy. When we say “we,” “us,” “our,” and “Map Your City” we’re referring to ANDRS Projects Europe, a Netherlands private limited company, that holds the Map Your City registered trademark. When we say “you”, “user”, “member” or “owner” we’re referring to the person or entity accessing or using the Service.

A “Member” or “Owner” is you or some other person you contact through our Service, or a person who you might choose to contact at some point in the future through the use of our Service. In other words, a Member or Owner is anyone on your Organization’s Member List.

We offer the Service on our websites and through mobile applications. In the course of providing the Service, we may collect Personal Information. “Personal Information” means any information that identifies or can be used to identify you, a User or a Member or Owner, directly or indirectly, including, but not limited to, first and last name, date of birth, email address, gender, occupation or other demographic information. An “Organization Member List” is a list of Members and Owners and all associated information related to those Members and Owners (for example, email addresses).

 

SCOPE OF THIS POLICY AND USING OUR SERVICE

This Privacy Policy is effective with respect to any data that we have collected, or collect, about and/or from you, according to our Terms of Service.

This Privacy Policy describes Map Your City’s policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information when you use the Map Your City Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy.

Capitalized terms that are not defined in this Privacy Policy have the meaning given them in our Terms of Service. By accessing or using the Service, you agree to this Privacy Policy.

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICE.

Payment Information. If you are a user of our paid premium service, we will utilize a third party credit card payment processing company to collect payment information, including your credit card number, billing address and phone number.

Cookies: When you use the Service, we may send one or more “cookies” – a small data file – to your computer to uniquely identify your browser and let Map Your City help you log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site. A cookie may convey anonymous information about how you browse the Service to us.
