Street View Static API Policies

This document lists requirements that are specific to applications developed with the Street View Static API. Note that use of the Street View Static API is governed by the Google Maps Platform Terms of Service.

Providing terms of use and privacy policy

If you develop a Street View Static API application, you must make available a Terms of Use and a Privacy Policy with your application which meets the guidelines outlined in section 3.2.3(a) of the Google Maps Platform Terms of Service:

  • Your Terms of Use and Privacy Policy must be publicly available.
  • You must explicitly state in your application's Terms of Use that by using your application, users are bound by Google’s Terms of Service.
  • You must notify users in your Privacy Policy that you are using the Google Maps API(s) and incorporate by reference the Google Privacy Policy.

The recommended place to make available your Terms of Use and Privacy Policy depends upon your application's platform:

Mobile applications

If developing a mobile app it is recommended that you provide a link to your Terms of Use and Privacy Policy on your application's download page in the relevant application store and in an application settings menu.

Web applications

If developing a web application it is recommended that you provide a link to your Terms of Use and Privacy Policy in the footer of your website.

Pre-Fetching, Caching, or Storage of Content

Applications using the Street View Static API are bound by the Google Maps Platform Terms of Service. Section 3.2.4(a) and (b) of the terms states that you must not pre-fetch, index, store, or cache any Content except under the limited conditions stated in the terms.

Note that the panorama ID, used to uniquely identify a Street View panorama, is exempt from the caching restriction. You can therefore store panorama ID values indefinitely. Panorama ID values are returned in the pano field in Street View Static API responses.
