Acknowledgment and Acceptance of Terms
If you do not agree, do not use the Service.
We reserve the right to change the Terms of Service from time to time. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review the Terms of Service periodically to learn of any modifications. Your continued access or use of the Services after such posting constitutes your consent to be bound by the modified Terms of Service.
Using Our Service
You must follow any policies made available to you within the Services.
Don’t misuse our Services. For example, don’t interfere with our Services or try to access them using a method other than the interface and the instructions that we provide. You may use our Services only as permitted by law, including applicable export and re-export control laws and regulations. We may suspend or stop providing our Services to you if you do not comply with our terms or policies or if we are investigating suspected misconduct.
Using our Services does not give you ownership of any intellectual property rights in our Services or the content you access other than as expressly set out in these Terms. Other than User Content (addressed below), you may not use content from our Services unless you obtain permission from its owner or are otherwise permitted by law. These terms do not grant you the right to use any branding or logos used in our Services. Don’t remove, obscure, or alter any legal notices displayed in or along with our Services.
In connection with your use of the Services, we may send you service announcements, administrative messages, and other information. You may opt out of some of those communications.

You are solely responsible for ensuring that you comply with all applicable legal requirements for the operation of any aircraft, including any requirement that you detect and avoid other aircrafts. You must at all times comply with all applicable local, state, national, and international laws and regulations related to the operation of unmanned aerial devices and your use of the Service in your territory of operation, including any applicable laws with regard to privacy. You will obtain and maintain all necessary licenses, consent, and authorizations of any kind.
Your FlytBase Account
You may need a FlytBase Account in order to use some of our Services. You may create your own FlytBase Account, or your FlytBase Account may be assigned to you by an administrator, such as your employer. An account is defined as one named user individual (“User”) that can use the Service at a time. Multiple Users may not use the same User account, and only one human being can be associated with a particular User account. If you are using a FlytBase Account assigned to you by an administrator, different or additional terms may apply and your administrator may be able to access or disable your account.
To protect your FlytBase Account, keep your password confidential. You are responsible for the activity that happens on or through your FlytBase Account. Try not to reuse your FlytBase Account password on third-party applications.
You understand that by using the Service, you are given access to drone data for your information and personal use solely as intended through the provided functionality of the Service and as permitted under these Terms. You are solely responsible for your own User Content and the consequences of posting your User Content on the Service, including your use of the Service that results in a violation of any individual’s or organization’s privacy rights.
Subject to your compliance with these Terms, FlytBase grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-sublicensable, revocable, non-transferrable license to: (i) access and use the Applications on your personal device solely in connection with your use of the Services; and (ii) access and use any content, information and related materials that may be made available through the Services, in each case solely for your personal, non-commercial use. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved by FlytBase and FlytBase’s licensors.
You may not copy, modify, distribute, sell, or lease any part of our Services or included software, nor may you reverse engineer or attempt to extract the source code of that software, unless laws prohibit those restrictions or you have our written permission.
The Software may contain or be accompanied by software code provided by third parties (“Third Party Software”) that is subject to separate license terms (the “Third Party Terms”), and not any license contained in these Terms. Your use of the Third Party Software in conjunction with the Service in a manner consistent with the Terms is permitted. However, you may have broader rights under the applicable Third Party Terms and nothing in these Terms is intended to impose further restrictions on your use of the Third Party Software.
Ownership; Proprietary Rights
The Service is owned and operated by FlytBase. The visual interfaces, graphics, design, compilation, information, data, computer code (including source code or object code), products, software, services, and all other elements of the Service (“Materials”) provided by FlytBase are protected by intellectual property and other laws. Except as expressly authorized by FlytBase, you may not make use of the Materials. In addition, we will own any and all right, title, and interest in, and to any feedback, suggestions, information, or materials you convey to us related to the Service in connection with your use of the Service (“Feedback”). You hereby assign to FlytBase all right, title, and interest in such Feedback.
Billing and Payment
Access to the Service requires you to purchase a subscription and to pay our automatically recurring monthly or annual subscription fees. Access to certain features of the Service may require you to pay additional fees.
All paid plans must enter a valid payment account. Free accounts are not required to provide payment account information. An upgrade from the free plan to any paid subscription plan will trigger a bill. For monthly payment subscription plans, the Service is billed automatically in advance on a monthly basis and is non-refundable. There will be no refunds or credits for partial months of service, upgrade/downgrade refunds, or refunds for months unused with an open account. In order to treat everyone equally, no exceptions will be made.
If you would like to know more you can send us a request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You agree that we may, at any time, and at our sole discretion, terminate your account or suspend or prohibit your access to the Service without prior notice to you for violating any of the Terms of Service or for any other reason whatsoever. Upon termination of your use of the Service, you continue to be bound by this Agreement.
You may terminate your account at any time by contacting customer service at email@example.com. If you terminate your account, you remain obligated to pay all outstanding fees, if any, relating to your use of the Service incurred prior to termination.
Privacy and Copyright Protection
FlytBase’s privacy policies explain how we treat your personal data and protect your privacy when you use our Services. By using our Services, you agree that FlytBase can use such data in accordance with our privacy policies.
We respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement and terminate accounts of repeat infringers according to the process set out in the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
User Content In Our Service
Certain features of the Service may permit users to generate or post content, including messages, reviews, video, maps, models, folders, data, text, photographs, images, and data gathered by a drone or device (“User Content”). You retain ownership of any intellectual property rights that you hold in that User Content. In short, what belongs to you stays yours.
To provide our Service, we do require a license to your User Content, so that we can store your data on our servers, process it and transmit it to you: when you upload, submit, store, send or receive content to or through our Services, you hereby grant to FlytBase (and those we work with) a non-exclusive, worldwide license to use, store, reproduce, process, modify, publish, transmit, display, and distribute your User Content. The rights you grant in this license are for the limited purpose of operating and improving our Services, and to develop new products and services. This license continues even if you stop using our Services.
Why do we need these rights? The following situations are a few examples of where we would need these rights:
In order to receive your uploaded images, we need the right to store and transmit the data.
We need the rights to store, transmit, process, modify the user content in order to turn your data into different forms of maps and models.
If you would like to see the resulting maps/models and share them with people you have selected using FlytBase, we need the rights to transmit, display and distribute your user content.
Again – you own the Intellectual Property of the data, that means we can’t share or distribute this data without your permission. But we need these rights to provide the service.
FlytBase may provide tools through the Service that enable you to export information, including User Content, to third-party services (such as AirMap, Built.io, etc). By using one of these tools, you agree that we may transfer that information to the applicable third-party service. Third party services are not under our control, and we are not responsible for any third party service’s use of your exported information.
User Content Representations and Warranties
You are solely responsible for your User Content and the consequences of posting or publishing User Content. By posting and publishing User Content, you represent, and warrant that: you are the creator and owner of, or have the necessary licenses, rights, consents, and permissions to use and to authorize FlytBase and users of the Service to use and distribute your User Content; and your User Content, and the use thereof as contemplated herein, does not and will not: (i) infringe any third-party right, including any intellectual property, privacy or proprietary right; or (ii) slander, defame, libel, or invade the right of privacy, publicity or other property rights of any other person.
User Content Disclaimer
We are under no obligation to edit or control User Content that you or other users post or publish and will not be in any way responsible or liable for User Content. FlytBase may, however, at any time and without prior notice, screen, remove, edit, or block any User Content that in our sole judgment violates these Terms or is otherwise objectionable. You agree to waive, and hereby do waive, any legal or equitable rights or remedies you have or may have against FlytBase with respect to User Content.
Modifying and Terminating our Services
We are constantly changing and improving our Services. We may add or remove functionality or features, and we may suspend or stop a Service altogether.
You can stop using our Services at any time, although we’ll be sorry to see you go. FlytBase may also stop providing Services to you, or add or create new limits to our Services at any time.
We believe that you own your data and preserving your access to such data is important. If we discontinue a Service, where reasonably possible, we will give you reasonable advance notice and a chance to get information out of that Service.
Our Warranties and Disclaimers
We provide our Services using a commercially reasonable level of skill and care and we hope that you will enjoy using them. But there are certain things that we don’t promise about our Services.
OTHER THAN AS EXPRESSLY SET OUT IN THESE TERMS OR ADDITIONAL TERMS, NEITHER FLYTBASE NOR ITS SUPPLIERS OR DISTRIBUTORS MAKE ANY SPECIFIC PROMISES ABOUT THE SERVICES. FOR EXAMPLE, WE DON’T MAKE ANY COMMITMENTS ABOUT THE CONTENT WITHIN THE SERVICES, THE SPECIFIC FUNCTIONS OF THE SERVICES, OR THEIR RELIABILITY, AVAILABILITY, OR ABILITY TO MEET YOUR NEEDS. WE PROVIDE THE SERVICES “AS IS”.
SOME JURISDICTIONS PROVIDE FOR CERTAIN WARRANTIES, LIKE THE IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, WE EXCLUDE ALL WARRANTIES.
Liability for our Services
WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, FLYTBASE, AND FLYTBASE’S SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PROFITS, REVENUES, OR DATA, FINANCIAL LOSSES OR INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE TOTAL LIABILITY OF FLYTBASE, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, FOR ANY CLAIMS UNDER THESE TERMS, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE AMOUNT YOU PAID US TO USE THE SERVICES (OR, IF WE CHOOSE, TO SUPPLYING YOU THE SERVICES AGAIN).
IN ALL CASES, FLYTBASE, AND ITS SUPPLIERS AND DISTRIBUTORS, WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.
You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold FlytBase and our affiliates, officers, agents, and employees harmless from and against any demands, loss, liability, claims or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) made against us by any third party due to or arising out of your use of the Service.
FlytBase will not be liable for any failure or delay in the availability of the Service or any other performance of its obligations under these Terms on account of strikes, shortages, riots, insurrection, fires, flood, storm, explosions, acts of God, war, governmental action, labor conditions, earthquakes, material shortages, or any other cause that is beyond FlytBase’s reasonable control, including any failure of wireless cellular services provided by any third party in connection with your use of the Service.
These Terms provide that all disputes between you and FlytBase will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. You agree to give up your right to go to court to assert or defend your rights under this contract, except for matters that may be taken to small claims court. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator and not a judge or jury, and your claims cannot be brought as a class action.
Business uses of our Services
If you are using our Services on behalf of a business, that business accepts these terms. It will hold harmless and indemnify FlytBase and its affiliates, officers, agents, and employees from any claim, suit or action arising from or related to the use of the Services or violation of these terms, including any liability or expense arising from claims, losses, damages, suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorney’s fees.
About these Terms
We have full right to modify these Terms or any additional terms that apply to a Service to, for example, reflect changes to the law or changes to our Services. You should look at the Terms regularly. We’ll post notice of modifications to these Terms on this page. We’ll post notice of modified additional terms in the applicable Service. Changes will not apply retroactively and will become effective no sooner than fourteen days after they are posted. However, changes addressing new functions for a Service or changes made for legal reasons will be effective immediately. If you do not agree to the modified terms for a Service, you should cancel your FlytBase Account and discontinue your use of that Service.
These Terms control the relationship between FlytBase and you. They do not create any third party beneficiary rights. If there is a conflict between these Terms and any additional terms, the additional terms will control for that conflict.
If you do not comply with these Terms, and we don’t take action right away, this doesn’t mean that we are giving up any rights that we may have (such as taking action in the future).
If it turns out that a particular term is not enforceable, this will not affect any other terms.
