Each request to an API must include one of your account’s unique API-keys. Specific API-keys assigned to you within your subscription enable you to access from your application all the API-s included in the plan you are subscribed for.
Please carefully guard the security of your account and the use of your API keys. You are responsible for all use of the Services under your account, whether or not authorized, including any use of your API keys.
If you are entering into this agreement on behalf of your company or another legal entity, you represent that you have the authority to bind that entity to these Terms, in which case “you” will mean the entity you represent.

We provide our Services structured in standard and custom plans that you may subscribe for, these including a basic plan provided free of charge (referred to as “Kitty”) and further, commercial plans provided for a monthly or annually recurring fee.
Terms Governing Use within a Plan
For each plan, specific terms are defined that govern the use of the Services within the plan. These terms may be predefined in standard plans or negotiated and included in custom plans tailored to specific needs.
Terms describing the plan specify which components of our services are available within the plan and determine the monthly limits for the use of these, measuring use in transactions as units of measurement. Transactions defined for each of our services are, as follows:
- For the map visualization service, a transaction is a session (a page view in a web application, an active session in a mobile application). Calling our map view API within reasonable limits in one session (user interaction with the map view loaded in a web page or application visualization requests within the session) will not generate additional transactions. If your application, however, exceeds an average of 50 requests per session during the billing period of your subscription, your plan will be revised;
- For the geocoding and route planning services, a transaction is a request to the relevant API;
- For any other services, definition of the measurement is agreed within custom plans.
If the use of the Services in your application exceeds within a month the monthly quota specified for the plan you are subscribed for, you will be notified about it in e-mail and will be given a 30-day period to upgrade your plan or contact us before we stop providing the Services to you. In case you fail to take within 30 days the necessary measures, we will suspend all our Services on your account.

It is agreed that payments made by you will not be refunded regardless of their original purpose – except in the case of an effective revocation.
