User Agreement

This statement of rights and obligations is the terms of use that govern our relationship with individuals and companies (“Users”) which use our smartphone application to create their own digital address (“Address”) that they can share with friends, family, companies or organizations. When you use or log in to the application, which we call the “Service”, the “App” or “Map Project”, as a User, you approve of this user agreement, which may be updated from time to time.

 

Registration and user account security

Users register to start using the Service by entering their telephone number. A verification text message is sent to that telephone number to verify the identity of the User.

Based on the GPS coordinates of the User’s smartphone, the User is given the digital Address. If there is existing (national) address data available from map services, the Address will be linked to such existing data. The User may also add further data to complement the address with information for describing the route to their registered Address. The accuracy of the Address will be verified over time and by use. The User then creates an easy to remember username.

Once the address creation process has been completed, the User can choose freely to his/her own discretion, to whom the Address shall be shared, when and for how long. Users of the application can share their profile and Address with other Users. Users can be individuals, businesses, organizations or governments.  The User can at any time choose to no longer share his/her Address to any or a specific User.

Users provide Map Project with location data, which can be sensitive in many different aspects. In order protect this information, you commit to the following in relation to the registration process and the maintenance of your user account:

  1. You may not provide any false information to Map Project or create a User account for anyone other than yourself without their permission.
  2. You may not create more than one personal User account.
  3. You may not distribute your password, grant any other access to your User account or do anything else that could threaten your account’s security.
  4. You may not transfer your User account to anyone
  5. We reserve the right to remove or retrieve your username if we find it inappropriate (for example, if a trademark owner complains about a username that does not resemble the user’s correct name).

 

Sharing your Address

You may as a User decide completely on your own who you want to share your Address with. Furthermore, you own all information you provide to the Service in order to create an Address and you own the Address itself. This means that you at any time can delete your Address or decide not to share it any longer with specific persons, companies or organizations.

You will see all the Addresses shared with you and all the Users with whom you have shared your Address with your list of Connections. You may at any time revoke others’ access to your address by toggling the switch from share to stop sharing. When you allow a User to see your published content, it means that they can access the details until you revoke access.

In addition, the following applies to copyright protected information provided by you:

  1. For copyright protected material (“Protected Content”), such as photos, you give Map Project the following rights: you grant us a worldwide, perpetual, non-exclusive, free and transferable right to dispose, process, store, publish, distribute, transmit, play, encode, copy, present, display and otherwise use all Protected Content which you publish in the Service or in connection with the Service.
  2. This content license expires when you remove your Protected Content or your User account;

When you remove Protected Content, it will be removed in a manner similar to emptying the waste basket on a computer. However, you acknowledge that deleted content may remain in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but not available to others).

 

Privacy and data protection

Your privacy as a User is very important to Map Project. The Service has been designed to always comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”), regardless of it being legally applicable or not to you as a User.  Please refer to our Privacy Policy, as available on (http://mapproject.se/product/privacy), for further information on your rights and how to exercise them. The Privacy Policy sets out how we collect and use User data and information. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy in its entirety and use it as support for making informed decisions.

 

Security

We do our best to keep Map Project safe, but we cannot guarantee it unless you help us. We need your support for Map Project to continue to be safe, which means that you commit to the following:

  1. You may not send unauthorized commercial messages (eg spam) on Map Project.
  2. You may not collect user’s content or data, or otherwise access Map Project, through automated methods (eg harvester robots, robots, spiders or scrapers) without our permission.
  3. You may not upload viruses or other malware.
  4. You may not attempt to collect login credentials or access user accounts belonging to other Users.
  5. You may not publish content such as: is hateful, threatening or pornographic, which calls for acts of violence or containing nudity or gross or arbitrary violence.
  6. You may not develop or operate a third-party application with content related to drugs, alcohol, dating or other child-abused material (including advertising), war, harassment, violence etc.
  7. You may not use Map Project to perform any illegal, misleading, harmful or discriminatory action.
  8. You may not do anything that can disable, overload or impair Map Project’s functionality.
  9. You may not participate or encourage any violations of the terms of this User Agreement or our Privacy Policy.

 

Smartphones, feature phone and other units

The registration process must be done on an Android smart phone since it requires a GPS function. Nonetheless, the telephone number provided for the verification text message can be to a feature phone.

The Address will however be based on the GPS coordinates of the location of the smartphone on which the registration process is being undertaken. This makes it possible for Users to act as Ambassadors for the Service and help those without a smartphone to register an Address. The smartphone holder will then transfer username and address details to the User without a smartphone. If you are not a smartphone user, you can ask an Ambassador User to login on their phone and update your details.

Furthermore, we ask you to observe that your mobile operator’s regular tariffs and charges for the data traffic you use apply when using Map Project.

If you change or disable your mobile phone number, you must create a new Address.

Please also note that Map Project takes no responsibility for any failure to provide the Service if such failure is caused by or arises as a result of an event of force majeure, including, but not limited to fire, flood, strike, lightning, unavailability of or disturbances to public communications networks or internet connection availability, prolonged general power outages, changes of the regulatory environment, acts of governmental or military authorities, strikes, civil unrests, terrorism and war.

 

Pricing and limitation of liability

For Users which are individuals or organization registering a single Address, the Service is entirely free. Map Project offers the Service to Users without any profit-making purpose. As a consequence, Map Project assumes no liability for any damages caused to Users, either direct or indirect, by Map Project’s failure to provide the Service.

Companies, organizations and other legal entities that perform Address lookup requests to our database are charged for use of service. This is governed by separate agreements.

 

Termination or suspension of User accounts

Map Project is entitled to, with immediate effect, terminate or suspend the User’s use of the Service (without incurring any liability) if:

  1. the User commits a breach of the terms of the User Agreement;
  2. Map Project is requested to do so by a governmental or regulatory authority or is required to do so in order to comply with a change in statutory or regulatory requirements (or enforcements thereof) or pursuant to a court order or is otherwise unable to provide the Service due to market events outside the control of Map Project.

 

Updates to the User Agreement

The User Agreement may be updated or amended from time to time by Map Project. We will notify you in such cases we make significant changes.

 

Disputes

This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Sweden. Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of or in connection with this Agreement, or the breach, termination or invalidity thereof, shall be finally settled by arbitration in accordance with the Rules of the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (the “SCC“).  The seat of arbitration shall be Stockholm and the language used in the arbitral proceedings shall be English. The Rules for Expedited Arbitrations shall apply, unless the SCC in its discretion determines, taking into account the complexity of the case, the amount in dispute and other circumstances, that the Arbitration Rules shall apply. In the latter case, the SCC shall also decide whether the Arbitral Tribunal shall be composed of one (1) or three (3) arbitrators.
