Service availability


CyanoLakes services are based on satellite remotely sensed data. Satellite coverage and monitoring is dependent on snow cover, cloud cover and water body size (among other things). The latency (delivery time) and availability of data may be interrupted from time to time through scheduled maintenance or unexpected interruptions of satellite transmission. While CyanoLakes (Pty) Ltd warrants to provide you with excellent customer support and service, service interruptions may occur due to circumstances beyond our reasonable control. The customer indemnifies and holds CyanoLakes (Pty) Ltd and its employees harmless against any loss or damages that may result from service interruption.


Data policy


The customer will become the owner of the data downloaded via the API with full rights to its use. The API will be for exclusive use by the paying client and its authorized representatives.
