Elastic Maps Service - Terms of Service
Not for editing
If you use the Elastic Maps Service, you or, if applicable, the business you represent ("You") are agreeing to abide by the conditions and conditions of these Elastic Maps Service Terms of Service (the "Terms of Service") and are forming an agreement between yourself and Elasticsearch, Inc. ("Elastic"). If you do not want to abide by the terms and conditions of these Terms of Service, then you may not use the Elastic Maps Service. Elastic reserves the right to change these Terms of Service by posting modified Terms of Service, along with an effective date.
The Elastic Maps Service is a publicly-accessible Tile Map Service (TMS) that produces basemap tiles from MapTiler and OpenMapTiles. These files are generated from OpenStreetMap data, which is licensed under the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL). It also uses derived coastline data provided by OpenSteetMapData.com as well as raster and vector map data from Natural Earth, and the Apache 2.0 licensed Kartotherian. It was created and is maintained by Elastic as a convenience and for the exclusive purpose of providing a mapping functionality within components of the Elastic Stack, such as its open-source data visualization platform Kibana. You agree not to use the Elastic Maps Service for any other purpose.
Who May Use the Elastic Maps Service?
Only users of unmodified Kibana binaries obtained directly from Elastic through one of the following two Elastic authorized distribution points, downloads and GitHub or from an authorized Elastic distribution partner, are allowed to use the Elastic Maps Service in connection with their use of Kibana. In addition, except for authorized Elastic distribution partners, developers of non-Elastic applications and providers of non-Elastic services (including, without limitation any software-as-a-service providers) and any customers or users of such applications or services, may not use the Elastic Maps Service in connection with such non-Elastic applications or services.
Can Elastic Cut Off Your Use of the Elastic Maps Service?
If Elastic believes, in its sole discretion, that you have violated or attempted to violate any of these Terms of Service, Elastic may suspend or terminate your access to the Elastic Maps Service. If any usage, or pattern of usage, causes problems to the Elastic Maps Service, access may still be blocked without prior notice. Elastic may terminate its provision of the Elastic Maps Service at any time without prior notice.
