4. RSS Feeds 

While we allow Master Users and or Users to display their own maps on their own web pages, Master Users and or Users doing this must credit LocateA on their web site with a clickable link back to LocateA.net. Any Master User and or User found not complying with this basic requirement is subject to have their account terminated without notice or reason with the loss of all/any recorded data.

[ Updated 5/12/2007 ] Due to abuse of this service, LocateA will only activate your RSS feeds after a moderator has visited your map to confirm you credit LocateA with a clickable link. We should also be able to surf to your map page(s) easily from your main home page. LocateA now stores your map URL(s) in our database which actively checks at random your map page(s) for this link. If the link is not found by our script, your RSS feed is automatically disabled. If any of your RSS feed(s) are disabled 3 times or more by our script in any 12 month period the reactivation of the feeds will attract an admin charge of £250 + VAT.

If you really do not wish to credit LocateA with a clickable link then you can purchase a license to remove it, a license costs £100 per year + VAT for each domain.

Master Users and or Users who display their own maps using our RSS feeds accept, understand and acknowledge that 'google' DO NOT ALLOW their maps to be used for Vehicle Tracking in anyway whatsoever, and you further agree to be solely responsible for any action google may bring against you should you decide to use google maps. LocateA reserves the right to terminate your RSS feed without question, notice or reason, and if approached by google we will comply with their request to terminate your RSS feed should they ask us to. For the benefit of doubt, LocateA provide RSS feeds solely for use on the Microsoft Virtual Earth Platform.
