Terms of Service
In order to build a map on your web page, you need to provide data to Plug and Play Maps. You may pass the data by reference to a datafile somewhere on the internet (not necessarily on your website), or by placing the data directly in the call to the Plug and Play Maps script. In either case, visitors to your website can see your data, so you should not post or provide any information you consider to be sensitive. Plug and Play Maps makes no use of the data beyond providing the mapping script for your web page - we do not record, store, or otherwise make any use of the data you provide. We "use it then lose it" as soon as the script has been returned. We do, however, keep track of the number and data volume of script requests coming from your website, for purposes of monitoring and improving our service. We may also try to contact you to ask your permission to feature your map on our website, or to solicit your feedback about the service to identify ways to improve it; you should feel free to ignore any such contact if you are not interested, and we will not contact you further.
Plug and Play Maps reserves the right to limit the service as they see fit. Limits may be established for any reason, including but not limited to bandwidth usage, CPU usage, or any usage deemed abusive of the service. At present, the only limit set is 200kb per data layer (you can have more than one data layer per map). This is as much for your sake as ours -- too much data can greatly slow down your web visitor's browser as it tries to render the data.
The Plug and Play Maps service is freely available as provided, including any limits established above. If you are interested in the service without our logo and link-back to our website, or if you are interested in licensing the software to run on your server for greater performance and/or privacy, please contact us.
Plug and Play Maps provides the service "as is", with no warranty express or implied for any purpose. Use it if you like, or don't... it's your choice and you assume all responsibility. See also Google's terms of service.
