Data Download Terms

This document sets out the terms that apply to the download of a single copy of selected point cloud data (Data) from or via the website (Website).

A reference in these Data Download Terms to ‘Pointerra’, ‘we’, ‘us’ or ‘our’ means Pointerra Limited ACN 078 388 155. A reference to ‘you’ or ‘Users’ means you or the entity you represent. A reference to your ‘User Agreement’ means the agreement under which you are accessing the Website, including without limitation the Terms of Use and/or Subscription Agreement, as applicable. If you download Data on behalf of another entity, you represent and warrant that you are authorised to accept these terms on behalf of that entity.

We reserve the right to update or amend these Data Download Terms at any time. You should check this page from time to time to make sure you are aware of any changes. No changes to this document shall amend or otherwise impact the terms applicable to any previous downloads of Data from or via the Website.

This is the entire agreement between Pointerra and you in respect of Data downloaded by you. To the extent of any inconsistency between these terms and any other agreement between Pointerra and you (including without limitation the applicable User Agreement), these Data Download Terms will prevail.

[These Data Download Terms do not apply to downloads of Data held by Pointerra for the purposes of Hosting Services provided to you as part of a Subscription]

Intellectual property

The Data are protected by copyright, patent and other intellectual property laws in Australia and overseas. The Data and intellectual property rights therein are owned by third parties and are made available to Pointerra for provision to you under license. Other than expressly set out in the document, no rights or title to the Data or any intellectual property rights therein will pass to you under these Data Download Terms.

The Data may include trade marks which are protected by law. You may not use our trade marks in Australia or internationally without our prior written consent, except to legitimately identify our products or services. You may not remove or cause to be removed any Pointerra logo, watermark or other Pointerra or third party attribution from any Data.

Data quality

We use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Data is accurate and up-to-date. But we cannot guarantee the accuracy, currency, suitability, reliability or completeness of the Data, and we accept no responsibility for errors in the Data at any time. Without limiting any of the above, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, we will not be liable for any loss, damage, or cost of any kind, which is caused, or contributed to, by Data which is created by a third party.

We also use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Data is free from viruses, worms or other harmful codes. However, we do not guarantee that Data will be free from viruses, worms or other harmful codes.


  1. Subject to payment of the applicable Fees and paragraph (b), Pointerra grants to the User a worldwide, royalty free, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable irrevocable license to download and use a single copy of the selected Data for your own personal or internal business purposes to:

    1. create 3D visual models of the Data using applicable point-cloud modelling software or services and 2D images of those models (Visual Content); and
    2. reproduce, modify, publish or distribute Visual Content in any digital or physical printed form, excluding in connection with any medium to large scale distribution of goods or services for profit.

    You must not otherwise use, reproduce, modify, publish or distribute the Data without our prior written consent or as otherwise as allowed in this document, including (without limitation) for resale, download or distribution to the public for any purpose.

    If you are purchasing on behalf of your employer or client, then your employer or client can use the Data as set out above. In that case, you represent and warrant that you have full legal authority to bind your employer or client to the terms of this agreement. If you do not have that authority, then your employer or client may not receive or use the Data.

    You may allow subcontractors (for example, your surveyor or IT service providers) to use Data in any modelling or reporting process related to your final project or end use. These subcontractors may not use the Data or Visual Content for any other purpose.

  2. Some Data is used, and offered for download by Pointerra, under the terms of a public data license (such as Creative Commons or equivalent license terms) (Public Licence). To the extent that any Data is subject to a Public Licence, the terms of that Public Licence shall apply to your use of that Data, in preference to the license granted in paragraph (a) above. To the extent of any inconsistency with these Data Download Terms, the terms of applicable Public Licences shall prevail.

Credits and attributions

  1. You must expressly acknowledge Pointerra, in a reasonably prominent manner (by display of the Pointerra logo or other appropriate attribution), as the source of any Visual Content that you use, copy, modify or distribute.
  2. Without limiting paragraph (a), if and where commercially reasonable the use of Visual Content shall be accompanied by an adjacent credit to the contributor (to the extent this is made available to you) and Pointerra in substantially the following form:

    “[Name of Contributor (where provided)] / Use under license from”

  3. In all cases the credit shall be of such size, color and prominence so as to be clearly and easily readable by the unaided eye.
  4. You must not falsely represent that you are the original creator of a work that is made up entirely or substantially of Data or Visual Content.

Copyright claims

Except in respect of Data which is subject to any Public Licence, and provided you have not breached the terms of this or any other agreement with Pointerra, Pointerra shall indemnify and hold you harmless against all direct loss, damage, expense or costs (including legal costs) incurred or suffered or to be incurred or suffered by you, as a result of a claim by a third party that your use of the Data infringes or breaches the third party’s copyright.

You must:

  1. promptly notify Pointerra of any claim you receive in respect of any alleged infringement of copyright in relation to the Data by email to setting out all details of the claim then known to you (such as, the Visual Content at issue, the name and contact information of the person and/or entity making the claim, and copies of any correspondence received and/or sent in connection with the claim);
  2. permit Pointerra to conduct the defence of the claim including all negotiations for settlement provided that you shall have the right to participate in any litigation at your own expense; and
  3. provide Pointerra with any assistance reasonably requested to allow Pointerra to defend the claim.

In order to fulfil its obligations to you under this paragraph, Pointerra will either:

  1. obtain for you, the legal right to continue to use the Data; or
