Your content

You own your content. We may copy, cache or modify your content to enhance your use of the service. If you decide to leave, we will make all reasonable efforts to remove your content.

Rhumbl content

Just as you own your content, others own their content. Taking snapshots of other people's maps and distributing them without permission, trying to get their data and using them without permission are not allowed.

Terms of Service

This website, Rhumbl.com (the "site"), is owned and operated by Willcox & Huang ("Rhumbl", "we" or “us”). By using the site, services provided on the site, or data content we make available to you through the services (collectively, "Services"), you agree to be bound by the following Terms of Service and any future modifications (collectively, the "Terms"). Please read them carefully. If you don’t agree to these Terms, you may not use the Services.

In order to use most Services, you must register for a Rhumbl account. When you use our application program interfaces (APIs), each request to an API must include one of your account's unique API keys. Please carefully guard the security of your account and monitor use of your API keys. You are responsible for all use of the Services under your account, whether or not authorized, including any use of your API keys. At our discretion, we may make limited exceptions to this policy for unauthorized use of your account if you notify us of the problem promptly.

You must be 13 years or older to use the Services. By registering as a user or providing personal information on the site, you represent that you are at least 13 years old.

Our services

We grant you a non-exclusive, revocable license and right to use the Rhumbl Services to: 1) develop data visualizations and mapped data sets from your data, and 2) Make data visualizations and mapped data available to end users in connection with their use of your online services and online, desktop, or mobile applications.

If you would like to use our maps or Services for other purposes, like print media or videos, please contact us.

You may only use the Services to access content that you own, or that Rhumbl has made publicly available through explicit written notice. Accessing our Services to view other content or data violates the Terms, is subject to action by our third party licensors and is really not a cool thing to do. If you are curious about our technology, content and data, please just ask, and we'll be happy to help you in your mapping efforts.

Your content

Your content is your content. You retain ownership of all content that you contribute to the Services. Limited to the purpose of hosting your content so that we can provide the Services to you, you hereby grant Rhumbl a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, transferable right and license (with the right to sublicense), to use, copy, cache, publish, display, distribute, modify, create derivative works, and store such content and to allow others to do so. This right and license enables Rhumbl to host and mirror your content on its distributed platform. You warrant, represent, and agree that you have the right to grant Rhumbl these rights. On termination of your account, Rhumbl will make all reasonable efforts to promptly remove from the site and cease use of your content; however, you recognize and agree that caching of or references to the content may not be immediately removed.

Publicity

We're proud to have you as a user. During the term of this agreement, you hereby grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, non-transferable license to use your trademarks, service marks, and logos for the purpose of identifying you as a Rhumbl user to promote and market Rhumbl services. Of course, if you prefer we not use your logo or name in a particular way, just let us know, and we will respect that.

Our content

Other than your content, all content displayed on the site or accessible through the Services, including text, graphics, maps, logos, images, illustrations, software or source code, audio and video, and animations, are the property of Rhumbl and/or third parties and are protected by United States and international copyright laws. You may be held liable for any unauthorized copying or disclosure of this content. You agree that Rhumbl’s licensors shall be third party beneficiaries to these Terms and that these companies may directly enforce, and may rely upon, any provision of the Terms that confers a benefit on them or grants rights in favor of them.

The limited license granted by this agreement terminates automatically, without notice to you, if you breach any of these Terms. Upon termination of the limited license, you agree to immediately destroy any materials downloaded from the Services.

In addition, Rhumbl may cancel or suspend your account for any reason by providing you thirty days advance notice. Upon cancellation or suspension, your right to use the Services will stop immediately. You may not have access to data that you stored on the site after we cancel or suspend your account. You are responsible for backing up data that you use with the Services.

Changes to services or terms

We may modify these Terms and other terms related to your use of the Services (like our privacy policy or SLA) from time to time, by posting the changed terms on the site. All changes will be effective immediately upon posting. Please check these Terms periodically for changes. Your continued use of the Services after we post of changes constitutes your binding acceptance of the new terms.

We may change the features and functions of the Services, including APIs. It is your responsibility to ensure that calls or requests you makes to the Services are compatible with then-current Rhumbl APIs. We attempt to avoid changes to our APIs that are not backwards compatible, but such changes may occasionally be required. If that happens, we will use reasonable efforts to notify you prior to deploying the changes.

Indemnification

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless Rhumbl and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, partners, and employees from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of:
