Gmap4 terms of service

Gmap4 is for non-commercial use only. Use of Gmap4 by teachers and government employees is non-commercial and is encouraged. If you have a question about whether your proposed use is commercial then please send an email and ask.

If you want to embed a 'live' Gmap4 map on your website, please first send me an email and explain the nature of your website and estimated traffic your site will receive.

By using Gmap4 you agree that you are doing so entirely at your own risk. You acknowledge that there may be inaccuracies in the maps you see and data you obtain from Gmap4 and that there may be programming errors in any of the software that is part of Gmap4. You agree that you will not bring any claim of any nature or file any lawsuit against anyone that is in any way connected to your usage of Gmap4.

By using Gmap4 you further agree to be bound by Google's Terms of Service which includes but is not limited to the information at the following links:
Google Maps Platform Terms of Service
Google Maps Additional Terms of Service
Google Privacy Policy

Please do not post Gmap4 URLs in forums or on websites where the user is required to pay a fee to access the forum or website. Doing so most likely violates Google's terms of service. Also, as the software developer that wrote Gmap4 it is my intent that it be free. If you place Gmap4 URLs on a 'fee' part of a forum or website, then you are acting contrary to my intent.

Gmap4 privacy policy

Gmap4 does not collect any personally identifiable information such as user names. Gmap4 does not collect any information about its users from Facebook or from any other social networking site.

If you use Gmap4 to view GPX or TPO files, then that file is converted into a KML file and that KML file is temporarily hosted on the Mapping Support server. A script will periodically delete those copies but that script has not yet been written. Deleting those temporary copies will not prevent anyone from viewing the GPX or TPO file with Gmap4 as long as the original data file is still wherever you placed it online.

If you use the geolocation feature we do not save or share your location data with anyone. If you send us an email we do not share your name or email address with anyone.

Gmap4 collects usage statistics with the statcounter software.

Since Gmap4 uses the Google Maps Application Program Interface (API), Google's privacy policy is incorporated by reference:
