REMINDER! IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding new license terms for Location Services*:

For some of our new Location Services made available on Platform, we have changed the Transaction definitions in your current contract with HERE. This will impact all existing Location Services customers that have a contract with a license term based on Transactions such as Location Mapping when they start using Location Services on Platform.

By continuing to use the Location Services on Platform, you accept the new terms.

The changes are the following:
