Article 1

The apps are owned by NodeMapp BV, with KBO number 0834.906.219, located at Corbeillestraat 2, 2235 Hulshout (Belgium). By accessing and using the apps, you agree to these terms of use.

The content of the apps, including brands, logos, drawings, product or company names, texts, images, etc. are protected by intellectual rights and belong to NodeMapp BV or entitled third parties. You require permission from NodeMapp BV to reuse or copy information from the apps.

Article 3

To access certain features within the apps, it is necessary to create a NodeMapp account. To create an account, enter the requested personal data into the registration form within the apps. It is not allowed to share this data.

Article 4

The user understands that Nodemapp BV in its apps provides (road) maps via digital way (with additional functionalities) which are public and can be consulted by anyone. NodeMapp BV does not bear any responsibility for the accuracy of the routes published in the apps, the state of the published cycling/hiking routes, the signage on the terrain, etc. This of course applies all the more if the user deviates from the routes and creates his own routes on the map. In any case, like any other road user, the user remains solely responsible for assessing local situations, local conditions, signalling, the private or public nature of a road, etc. To the extent that user errors lead to claims for compensation in respect of Nodemapp BV, the user shall fully indemnify Nodemapp BV.

Article 5

NodeMapp BV cannot be held responsible for accidents or irregularities, committed by the users of the apps while following a publication (route) in the apps. NodeMapp BV urges the users of the routes to scrupulously adhere to the published routes and not to cause any damage, neither to the public domain, nor to the property of third parties.

Article 6

NodeMapp BV makes great efforts to display all information in the apps as accurately as possible. However, it cannot be ruled out that in certain situations, local conditions in the field may deviate from the information displayed in the apps. We are referring here in particular to the routes to be followed that are visible in the apps. When a route in the apps deviates or takes a different route than indicated by the local signs, the local signs and traffic conditions always take precedence over the information displayed in the apps. If a route in the apps does not correspond to the signposting on site, the user will follow the signposting on site. In any case, the local traffic situation prevails.

Article 7

The information in the apps is of a general nature. The information is not adapted to personal or specific circumstances and cannot, therefore, be considered as a personal or professional offer to the user. NodeMapp BV makes every effort to provide the information available completely, correctly, accurately, and up to date. However, it is not excluded that certain information may be outdated, incomplete, or otherwise incorrect.

If you notice any inaccuracies in the information provided in the apps, you can contact NodeMapp BV via the contact page on fietsknooppunt.be, wandelknooppunt.be, or nodemapp.com. The content of the apps may be modified, changed or supplemented without notice or notification.

NodeMapp BV tries to prevent interruptions in the operation of the apps as much as possible and cannot be held liable in any way for poor performance, temporary unavailability, or damage that may result from access to or use of the apps.

Article 8

The apps may contain hyperlinks to third-party websites or pages, or refer to them indirectly. The presence of these links does not imply in any way an implicit approval of their content. NodeMapp BV can therefore in no case be held liable for their content or characteristics or for any form of damage resulting from their use.

Article 9

Premium, hereinafter referred to as "subscriptions", is a paid feature within the apps that provides access to additional features. Subscriptions concluded within the apps have a duration of 1 full year. Subscriptions purchased via the website will not be automatically renewed upon expiry.
