Terms of Use

1. Who Are We?

This service is operated by Private.coffee, a non-profit association under Austrian law. You can find our full legal information on our website.

If you have any questions or concerns about this service, you can contact us by email at support@private.coffee or join our Matrix room, #overpass:private.coffee .

2. What Is This Service?

Our Overpass API service provides programmatic access to data from OpenStreetMap. Due to the nature of this service, the data returned may be slightly outdated compared to what is displayed on the OpenStreetMap website.

3. How Can You Access This Service?

Our Overpass API endpoints are available at https://overpass.private.coffee/api/. For the default interpreter, use https://overpass.private.coffee/api/interpreter. For testing purposes, you can use Overpass Turbo. For a full reference on usage, refer to the Overpass API documentation.

4. User Obligations

  • Be Kind: Optimize your queries, limit simultaneous requests, and avoid malicious or disruptive use.
  • Respect Privacy: Ensure your requests do not contain any personally identifiable information.
  • Comply with OpenStreetMap's License: Credit OpenStreetMap and its contributors as required by their license. Refer to OpenStreetMap's copyright and license notice.

5. Best Practices

  • Use a meaningful User-Agent header. It should include your project name and a means to contact you (e.g., a link to your project website). By including an email address, you allow us to keep that address on record for contact purposes.
  • Prefer POST requests over GET requests where possible.
  • Notify us in advance of any large operations (e.g., sending over ten requests per second, or running more than ten requests at a time).
  • If you're using this service in a commercial project, consider supporting us by making a donation or becoming a member of Private.coffee.

The service may be terminated at our sole discretion at any time, and we are not liable for any damages incurred due to service issues.

2. Information We Store

When you access our landing page or use our API endpoints, the following metadata may be collected for each request:

  • The first three bytes of the source IPv4 address (e.g., 123.45.67.0) or the first eight bytes of the source IPv6 address (e.g., 1234:5678:90ab:cdef::).
  • The date and time of the request.
  • The HTTP protocol version and request method.
  • The requested endpoint (GET parameters are not logged).
  • The HTTP Referer header content (if any).
  • The HTTP User-Agent header content (if any).

Logs may be retained for up to 48 hours and are used to detect and mitigate technical issues. This data does not qualify as personal data, so we do not require consent for storing it.

3. Support Tickets

If you contact us by email, we collect the following information from your message's headers:

  • The name and email address ("From" header).
  • Your IPv4 or IPv6 address ("Received" header).
  • The date and time of your message ("Date" header).
  • Any other information you provide in the headers or body.

This data is stored for thirty days after your support ticket is closed to respond effectively to your inquiry or any follow-up questions. It is then automatically deleted.

4. Cookies

We use cookies only as part of our support system to keep you logged in. You can disable cookies or manage them through your browser preferences. If you only access our API or landing page, no cookies are set.

5. Your Rights

  • Right to Access and Data Portability: Request copies of your personal data and transfer it to you or another entity.
  • Right to Rectification: Request corrections of incorrect or incomplete data.
  • Right to Erasure: Request deletion of data that we're not legally required to retain.
  • Right to Restrict/Object to Processing: Request we restrict or cease processing your data.

We process these requests within one month. You can contact us by email or mail to exercise any of these rights.

If you believe that we are not processing your data in accordance with applicable data protection laws, you have the right to complain to the competent data protection authority. In Austria, this is the Datenschutzbehörde.

If you have concerns about personal data that is returned by our API, please note that this is information we got from a public source. If you wish to get data removed from the OSM data set, please get in touch with the OSM Foundation directly.

6. Obligations as an API User

Ensure your requests do not include personally identifiable information. Communicate our privacy policy to your users or reference it in your own privacy policy.
