Additionally, you must not submit to the Services any Content that does not comply with this Agreement or the law. For example, the Content you submit must not include third-party intellectual property (such as copyrighted material) unless you have permission from that party or are otherwise legally entitled to do so. You are legally responsible for your Contributor Content. Content can include, for example, dashcam video, still images, GPS information, etc. You assume sole responsibility for any Content you post and you alone are liable for the consequences when you post Content.
Forbidden Content
It is strictly forbidden to knowingly submit Content that inaccurately portrays any location. It is also forbidden to submit Content of a commercial nature (including advertising), unless such Content pertains to Hivemappers or the Services, and such Content strictly complies with these Terms.
Additionally, when you submit Contributor Content, you must make sure it is lawful. For example, you may not submit Content that:
(1) is manipulated in any manner that would lead to an incorrect map;
(2) attempts to trick people by providing false, incomplete, or manipulated content;
(3) is knowingly not collected at the location it claims to be at;
(4) attempts to reveal the identify other persons;
The foregoing examples of unlawful Content are made solely for illustrative purposes and do not constitute an exhaustive list of restricted Content.
Hivemappers may decline to publish, or immediately delete any Contributor Content you submit if you or the Content have violated this Agreement or if you engaged in a commission or omission that is harmful or may be harmful to the Services, its Users, Hivemappers or any of its agents or affiliates. In such cases, Hivemappers may also terminate your access to the Services or prevent you from posting additional Content on the Services. The provisions of this clause are made in addition to any rights afforded to Hivemappers by any law.
Contributor Content does not reflect the views of Hivemappers. Publishing or processing Contributor Content does not warrant its validity, reliability, accuracy, legality or it being up-to-date.
Generated Content
“Generated Content” means both: (1) the Content resulting from the processing from the Software and available to view on the website (“Map Content”); and (2) the corresponding data returned through the Hivemappers API (“API Content”). Except as expressly permitted to Customers who have a signed Order Form with Hivemappers, Users are allowed only to view and search Generated Content and are not permitted to download, export, copy, manipulate or mine any Generated Content.

Hivemappers and/or third parties retain ownership and/or other applicable rights in all Generated Content and all Content other than Contributor Content.
When you submit Contributor Content, you represent and warrant that you own all intellectual property rights in the Content; that you are permitted to publish the Content and to permit Hivemappers to use the Content and exploit all intellectual property rights in and to the Content. Hivemappers receives no ownership rights in and to your Contributor Content. However, by submitting Content to Hivemapper, you hereby grant Hivemapper an irrevocable, worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sub-licenseable and transferable license to use, copy, distribute, and prepare derivative works from the Content. The license granted to Hivemapper in and to the Content you submit is not limited to personal use, but also extends to any commercial use of Content, at Hivemapper’s sole and absolute discretion. Other Users will not have access to your Contributor Content, though we reserve the right to change this in the future, in which case we will notify you prior to making your Content publicly available.
Removing Your Content
You may request to remove your Content from Hivemapper at any time, but removing such will not affect the Generated Content already created from your Content.
