Conditions of service and supply

Vector maps are offered in the Internet in huge and quickly increasing numbers. But the prices are very high; reason for this is the required working effort and the still very limited market. Prices form more as 1000 are normal, many maps are protected by watermarks, limiting so the use outside of the terms defined by the owner. But in the Internet are also in increasing numbers vector maps used, especially in Wikipedia, using the SVG format. But these maps should be manually modified; usually they are not prepared for the display of additional geo-referenced data.

Worst case scenario

In case of reclamations which can not be solved on a conciliant way with an mutual agreement the complaining part should involve a extra-legal mediator. Only after a written negative result of the mediation should be involved the legal way.

The court of jurisdiction is the corresponding court of our main office.
