These Terms were last updated in September 2008. By accessing and using this Web site, you agree to these Terms of Use.

Copyrights – Protection of content
All content and functionality on the Web site, including text, graphics, logos, icons, and images and the selection and arrangement thereof, is the exclusive property of MapAList or its licensors and is protected by U.S. and international copyright laws. All rights not expressly granted are reserved.

Trademarks – Protection of marks
The trademarks, service marks, designs, and logos displayed on the Web site are the registered and unregistered Trademarks of MapAList and its licensors. You agree that you will not refer to or attribute any information to MapAList or its licensors in any public medium (e.g., press release, Web sites) for advertising or promotion purposes, or for the purpose of informing or influencing any third party and that you will not use or reproduce any Trademark of, or imply any endorsement by or relationship with, MapAList or its licensors without the MapAList’s prior written consent.

Use of Web Site Content - Allows users to use, but not modify/reproduce the site
MapAList hereby grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable license for the term hereof to access and download, display, share and print maps that you have created using the site, provided that you do not modify the Web site Content in any way and that you retain all copyright and other proprietary notices displayed on the Web site Content. You may not otherwise reproduce, modify, distribute, transmit, post, or disclose the Web site Content without MapAList’s prior written consent.

Privacy – Collection and distribution of personal info
We will not collect any personal information from you that you do not volunteer, and we are the sole owner of all information collected on this site. We do not sell, share, or rent this information to others in any way that we have not mentioned in this statement.

Cookies
Like many other Web sites, MapAList uses cookies to identify users so they don't have to re-enter a user ID and password each time they visit the site. Cookies also help improve your experience and display more prominently goods and services that might interest you. If you do not have cookies enabled, you must enter your password each time you access MapAList or any of its member features.

Third Parties
MapAList may provide third parties with aggregate statistics about our customers, traffic patterns, and related site information. This data reflects site usage patterns gathered during thousands of customer visits to our Web site each month but does not contain behavioral or identifying information about any individual user, unless that user has expressly provided consent. MapAList may use third party companies to provide delivery of e-mail newsletters and other. Please be aware that MapAList may buy and sell business assets and/or divisions; customer information is generally part of such a sale.

Map Data – public and private maps and associated privacy
By nature, the creation of a map using MapAList requires you as a user to disclose data, such as an address list, for mapping purposes. All data points for maps are stored in a secure database. The points for a map are only retrieved from the database to show that map when requested by the authenticated user who created the map, unless you as the user have explicitly defined the map as “public”.

If you as the user have explicitly defined a map as “public”, any other user or entity that has the link to your map can view the map itself, view the HTML source code behind the map, and therefore gain visibility to the associated data points that are plotted. MapAList and its affiliates are committed to user privacy and will not publish or distribute the URL(s) associated with maps deemed by users as “public” without your express written consent. MapAList and its affiliates are in no way responsible for your inadvertent or unplanned distribution of “public” map URLs to parties outside your desired usage group.

Obtaining Consent – by using the site, we get permission to track usage; by registering we get permission to do a bit more in terms of tailoring the user experience and collect more specific aggregate data.
By using our Web site, you give MapAList permission to collect information about the pages served to you as an anonymous user for the purpose of calculating aggregate site statistics. If you register at MapAList, you authorize MapAList to use information you provide to personalize the information we deliver to you and to use your demographic information when calculating aggregate customer data. Additionally, you give MapAList administrators, permission to view and use all data provided, both “public” and “private” for Web site testing and maintenance related efforts.
