No modification (ND)

The license does not allow changes to our data outside of coaster.cloud. This has an important background: we want to share data. And if data needs improvements, of course everyone wants to benefit from this improvements. For example, if you find a bug that a roller coaster is 60 meters high instead of 55 meters, we expect you to adjust this bug on coaster.cloud and not just in your project.

Furthermore, we are pleased if you also add missing data on coaster.cloud and not exclusively in your project - for example, if you know the length of a roller coaster in addition to the height and this is missing on coaster.cloud.

Of course, this does not mean that you have to maintain everything on coaster.cloud. What represent your project, should stay in your project!
