Terms and Conditions

Your continued use of ViDA requires agreement of our Terms and Conditions:


  1. VIDA is software that has been created by iRAP with donations from charitable foundations, governments, development institutions, companies, research centres and individuals worldwide. These donations have been in the form of money, skilled time, background intellectual property and special discounts and gifts of many kinds. All these donations have enabled iRAP to make VIDA a software tool for use worldwide and to help reduce the crashes that cause death and injury on the world's roads.
  2. iRAP is a charity registered in England and Wales (number 1140357). iRAP was established to support the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. iRAP's objectives relate to the promotion of safer road use and infrastructure in the public interest and iRAP is regulated by the Charity Commission.
  3. iRAP holds and administers the rights to use the VIDA software for general benefit. We want you to use VIDA and help make the world's roads safer to use.
  4. VIDA allows you to access content including mapping and tables of results which have been built from road inspections and assembled from surveys of many kinds. iRAP is indebted to the data holders who have allowed use of their data in VIDA which make this possible whether in governments, authorities, charities, automobile clubs, companies, research institutions, international treaty organisations, trade associations, or regional road assessment programmes.
  5. In order for you to use VIDA, you must agree to the terms and conditions of this licence. This protects the interests of those that have given the content or background copyright material which is contained in VIDA and to keep safe the ongoing development of VIDA and iRAP's programme of charitable work.
  6. iRAP tries continuously to raise the funds to improve VIDA and pay for the costs of servers and other consumables that are required so that everyone can have access to VIDA either freely or for a donation that does not deter its use. You will not be asked to pay anything for using VIDA if you are a not-for-profit organisation or an authority working on improving roads in a low income country as defined by the World Bank. You may, however, be asked on a “feels fair” basis to make either a donation or a grant if you are i) charging fees for services provided or ii) if you are an authority making significant use of VIDA in a medium or high income country.

  4.

You therefore agree that neither iRAP nor the iRAP family will have any liability for any such inaccuracies, errors or omissions.
  11. iRAP may suspend or discontinue all access to VIDA at any time. Without prejudice to any other rights iRAP may then hold, iRAP may terminate this licence agreement with immediate effect in the event that you are in material breach of any of these terms and conditions.

  13. If iRAP does not exercise any right or provision in this Agreement then this does not constitute any form of waiver.

  14. You agree, if so requested by iRAP (at iRAP's discretion) in accordance with background paragraph F above, to give sympathetic consideration to the payment of a contribution in the form of a donation or grant requested by iRAP for use of ViDA.

    1. you are conducting a commercial business reliant on the use of ViDA or
    2. you are an authority making significant use of VIDA in a high income country as defined by the World Bank
    then iRAP reserves the right to terminate this licence to use ViDA.
  15. Nothing in this Licence agreement creates any form of partnership between the parties hereto, and neither party may purport to act on behalf of or to represent the other.
  16. This Licence agreement forms a legally binding contract.

You agree to accept any amended or updated terms following such posting by continuing to use VIDA. If you use an updated version of VIDA you accept the iRAP Terms and Conditions which are then current.
