Changes to the Terms of Service
The Flight Plan Database reserves the right to modify or replace these Terms of Service at any time. Prior to these changes becoming effective, we will notify you through your account email address. Your continued use of the Services after the changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Terms of Service.
The Flight Plan Database claims no ownership over the content you upload to the service. However, by uploading content to the Flight Plan Database you agree to allow others to view, download and make derivatives of your content. You may not use these services to upload content for which you do not have the necessary rights to do so. Any content uploaded in contravention to this rule may be deleted and the associated account blocked. The Flight Plan Database itself is copyright 2008-2018 Flight Plan Database, with all rights reserved. You may not redistribute, copy or reuse any portion of the Flight Plan Database without our written permission.
Third Party Sites
The Flight Plan Database, and all contained data, is intended for simulated flight navigation only and must not be used in real-world flight situations. We cannot be held responsible for use outside of these limitations and your continued use of the site constitutes your agreement to this condition.
If you have any questions about these Terms of Service, please contact us.
Limits and Abuse
Request limits are used to prevent abuse of the API and ensure the data is available fairly to all users. Attempts to circumvent the limits or authentication may lead to your API access being revoked. We retain the right to reduce API limits or revoke access in the future for any reason.
Some data available through the Flight Plan Database website may not be available through the API, particularly where such data is subject to external license agreements. Whilst we endeavor to make as much information available as possible, in some cases this may not be feasible. Subject to changes in these requirements, the data available through the API may change in the future.
Public Use and Attribution
When data from the API is used in any publicly accessible or distributed medium, proper attribution to the Flight Plan Database must be given wherever the data is presented, whether in a raw or modified form. Suitable attribution would be a string such as 'Using data from the Flight Plan Database', which is linked back to the homepage at https://flightplandatabase.com or the relevant page for the data presented. Alternatively, the Attribution section of the API documentation contains images that may be used when similarly linked back. Additionally, all public use of this data MUST be accompanied by a notice that the data is for flight simulation use only and is not suitable for real-world aviation or navigation. Services that are found to present this data as real-world suitable will be blocked from the API and we may respond to requests with warnings to end users.
