Terms of Service

These terms of service apply (hereinafter referred to as the “Terms”) between you (either a private company, public organization or natural person, hereinafter referred to as “you” or “your”) and SCALGO ApS (hereinafter referred to as “SCALGO”) covering the use of SCALGO Live and associated documentation (hereinafter referred to as the “Service”). By using the Service, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of Terms. Your acceptance of the Terms is a condition for the grant of access to the Service.

Grant of License. SCALGO grants to you a non-exclusive right to use the Service on the terms and conditions set out in these Terms. In order to use the Service, you must have a SCALGO Live Account (hereinafter referred to as the “Account”). You agree that any information you give to SCALGO in connection with your Account or your continued use of the Service will always be accurate, correct and up to date.

When setting up the Account, you must appoint one or more users as administrators of the Account. Each administrator has the right to invite other users in the organisation to join the Account and to review the usage of all the other users on the Account. The administrators will be point-of-contact for any administrative communication from SCALGO including communication about changes in the Terms, invoicing, violation of Terms, etc. Communication will be via email to the email address registered for each of the administrators.

Authority to Accept the Terms. You declare that you have full power, capacity and authority to accept these Terms. If you are accepting on behalf of your employer or another entity, you represent that you have full legal authority to bind your employer or such entity to these Terms. If you don't have the legal authority to bind, please ensure that an authorized person from your entity consents to and accepts these Terms.

Reserved Rights. You acknowledge and agree that SCALGO (or SCALGO’s licensors and their suppliers, as applicable) own all legal right, title and interest in and to the Service, including any intellectual property rights that subsist in the Service. You are not entitled to change or remove any notice on copyright, trademarks or any other rights marked on the Service.

Data Fees for Swedish data. Within the territorial borders of Sweden, the Service contains data that is owned by Lantmäteriet. SCALGO is a distributor of this data and is obligated to charge organisations a Data Fee determined by the number of tiles accessed and amount of data downloaded (see section below). To determine the Data Fee for each organisation, SCALGO is responsible for maintaining an index that records when a tile is first accessed by the organisation. The Data Fee is paid to SCALGO at the beginning of every quarter. The Data Fee may be subject to changes made by Lantmäteriet.

If you are a member of “Geodatasamverkan”, you can use the data from Lantmäteriet without paying the Data Fee. It is your responsibility to notify SCALGO about your membership of “Geodatasamverkan”.

If you are a consultant working for a third-party, and if this third-party is already a member of “Geodatasamverkan”, you are allowed to use the data from Lantmäteriet without paying the Data Fee. For this purpose, consultants can use SCALGO Live in a mode where Data Fee accounting is disabled. It is the sole responsibility of the consultant to make sure, that the Data Fee accounting is only disabled, when working for a third-party that is a member of “Geodatasamverkan”. SCALGO and Lantmäteriet reserves the right to check the maintained index and server traffic information, to verify that the Data Fee accounting is disabled according to the above rules.

A Data Fee is due for tiles accessed by an organisation when these tiles are based on or derived from data provided by Lantmäteriet. Every dataset and derived analysis in the Service has a native zoom level determined by the resolution of the underlying data (see current table on tile prices and definition of native zoom levels by following this link: www.scalgo.com/en-US/terms-and-agreement/se-data-fees). In the case where a tile is accessed at a zoom level higher (more detailed) than the native zoom level, the Data Fee is paid for the corresponding tile at the native zoom level i.e., the tile at the native zoom level that contains the tile being accessed. The fee paid for a tile (or corresponding tile at the native zoom level) is valid for a year, any accesses to that tile within a year after the first access are free. See table below for tile fees and indication of native zoom levels for each dataset. The fees apply both to the raw data and to any analysis products derived from the data i.e., a tile from an analysis derived from the terrain model is also considered as a terrain model tile. Creating a workspace or downloading data for a region is equivalent to viewing all the tiles at the native zoom level that intersect the region. You are only allowed to use downloaded data for a year from the date of download.

Demonstration and Educational License. If the Service is obtained as a demonstration version or an educational version, it may not be used for commercial purposes and will only be operational for a limited time.


a) The Service is licensed for your use only. You may not sell, distribute, license, rent, lease, lend, pledge or otherwise transfer or assign your Account or the related rights of use to a third-party without the prior written permission of SCALGO unless that third party is a contractor working directly for you on a specific project. In case you give a third-party access to the Service for a specific project, you are responsible for terminating their access once their work on the project is done. In any case, a third-party access to the Service may never last longer than 6 months. You are responsible for ensuring that the third-party comply with the relevant provisions in these Terms.
