The website is published by Kisio Digital, a simplified joint stock company with a capital of €3,336,750, registered with the Paris Trade and Companies Register under number 439 506 080, whose head office is located at 20 rue Hector Malot 75012.
The purpose of these terms and conditions is to define the terms of access and use (hereinafter “GCU”) for the Navitia.io API.
The aim of Navitia.io is to enable more people to improve or create new mobility-related products and services to promote public transport on a wider scale.
Navitia.io is a service that connects transport data producers with Re-users. Through its API and the aggregation of open data, the platform offers improved services for route planning, displaying the next departures, timetable searches, local searches, autocomplete, etc.
The Navitia.io API is the property of Kisio Digital as the publisher. The API has been developed from a Navitia technology base (versions 1 and 2) and an open source passenger information system (AGPL licence), owned by Kisio Digital.
The following definitions are used below:
- Re-user: any natural or legal person wishing to use the Navitia.io API and its features to integrate them into their own information system for end users or others. (e.g. developers, start-ups, digital agencies, IT companies, large tourism companies, events, real estate sectors, etc.)
- Producer: legal entity, owner or manager of public transport data with the intention of providing raw data to the widest possible audience as part of their open data policy.
- The API (web service): Application Programming Interface, is defined as a set of rules or a routine by which a programme authorises another application to work directly with it, by accessing its functions. The Navitia.io API is presented in the technical documentation available on the website Navitia.io.
- Publisher: Kisio Digital, which has ownership of the Navitia.io API
- Website: the Navitia.io website
Adherence to the GCU
Any consultation of the pages of the Website subsequent to the present page implies the Re-user’s acceptance of the terms of these GCU.
It is specified that the Publisher remains free at any time to add to, modify, correct or delete all or part of the GCU. These changes will be considered to have been brought to the Re-users’ attention by the simple fact that they are posted online. Consequently, they are deemed to be accepted without reservation by any Re-user accessing the Website after they have been posted online. The Re-user is therefore invited to refer to them each time they visit the Website in order to familiarize themselves with the latest version available.

The main features offered by the API are:
- route planning;
- information about the next departures;

Re-users are informed and accept that Kisio Digital may carry out inspections to confirm that the features are being used appropriately and in accordance with applicable laws and these GCU.
The Navitia.io API is designed to provide free and open access for commercial and non-commercial purposes. However, providing the API incurs real costs for Kisio Digital. In the event of intensive use of the Navitia.io APIs or for certain commercial applications, Kisio Digital reserves the right to charge for use of or access to the Navitia.io API.

Obligations of the Re-users
For any use of the Navitia.io API, we ask you to include a credit mentioning “navitia.io” and a link to the Website: www.navitia.io. Reference to “navitia.io” can be included in legal notices and credits for developed applications, in online shops and in your press releases.
The Re-user undertakes to respect the rules of ethics and good manners in all discussions with other users and in particular on the Google Group and on social networks.
The Re-user also undertakes to inform Kisio Digital of any use that appears to be abusive and/or contrary to these GCU.
The Re-user undertakes not to use the API and its data for malicious purposes or purposes that could harm a third party.
For transporting open data:
The transport data used by the Navitia.io API comes from producers (carriers and other transport organisations) who have chosen to publish their data as open data.
It is understood that Navitia.io uses several datasets subject to heterogeneous licences that must be strictly respected.
It is understood that Kisio Digital does not mix the said heterogeneous data to recreate a new unique database. The databases are processed individually and added to by Kisio Digital teams to be redistributed in GTFS format on the Website or via the API. The aggregation of the databases only takes place in the Navitia engine, for which each element is subject to its own conditions.
When using the Website, the Re-user undertakes to comply with applicable laws and regulations and the open data licence conditions for the datasets, expressly referring to the licences in question to ascertain the extent of the applicable rights and obligations.
The notices for these licences are available on the following page: http://www.navitia.io/datasets. To use the Navitia.io API, Re-users are required to include the notices stipulated in the licences for the datasets used in the credits for their application.
As a reminder, Kisio Digital undertakes to study the licences of datasets before making them available for re-use or to negotiate specific agreements with the producer if the obligations are too restrictive or incompatible with the licences to ensure the legal availability of the data, subject to the appropriate licence.
Regarding address data:
To complement its service, Navitia.io works closely with Open Street Map, an international project founded in 2004 to create a free map of the world. The Navitia software includes address and POI data from Open Street Map for redistribution to Re-users.
The address data can be freely re-used under an ODbL licence which includes an attribution clause and a sharing clause. If you use an OpenStreetMap, you must include a credit for the OpenStreetMap contributors.
See the following address for more information: http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright
In the event of non-compliance with these GCU, Kisio Digital reserves the right to suspend the Re-user’s access to the API and to take legal action.
Limitation of responsability
Any Re-user using the API free of charge does so at their own risk. In no event shall Kisio Digital, its affiliates or its employees be liable for any direct or indirect damages, including but not limited to any material damages, loss of data or software, transmission of a virus that may infect computer equipment or any other property on account of connecting to and/or accessing and/or using the API, or any financial loss resulting from access to the API or use of the information contained therein, regardless of its nature.
In case of free use, neither Kisio Digital nor its subsidiaries, nor its staff members can be held responsible for the use of the API and the compliance with the obligations by the Re-users. Kisio Digital’s obligation is limited to advising on the obligations to be respected for the datasets.
Finally, Kisio Digital will endeavour to ensure the quality and accuracy of the data provided via the API functions.
