Not sure if this question is suitable for SE but I can't find answers anywhere else.
I work as a GIS Analyst for a mining company that has its own GEPro license. As part of my job, I make PDF maps, which are then used externally on the company's website for promotional purposes. The maps display geological information, with GE satellite imagery as a base layer.
Per my understanding of GEPro's TOS, this is acceptable. I am an employee of a company which has a valid license, and I am making maps on their behalf.
Now for the tricky part. I am starting to do freelance/contract map work for other companies. I have my own GEPro license, and would be delivering to my clients PDF maps of geological data with satellite imagery as the base layer. The clients would then use the PDF maps externally, for promotional purposes. I think that this would classify my clients as "Third Parties".
As far as I see it there are three options:
1) Making maps for third parties for a fee is acceptable with a GEPro license
2) Making maps for third parties for a fee is acceptable with a GE Enterprise license
3) I can make as many maps as I want, so long as the company I'm making them for has a valid GEPro license
I've read over most everything Google has put out as far as TOS goes, but clarity is hard to come by. The GE Enterprise TOS talks about not selling "Intermediate Data Products" or "Fused Databases", but I dont think those are applicable to what I would be providing (though admittedly, I am not crystal clear on what those two terms mean).
Anyone have any insight/experience with this?
Thanks for reading
