Regarding Attachment 6 in TOS...
2.5 Unless otherwise expressly permitted in the MapKit Documentation, Map Data may not be cached, pre-fetched, or stored by You or Your Application, other than on a temporary and limited basis solely to improve the performance of the Apple Maps Service with Your Application.
If the term "Map Data" do include longitude/latitude, what if you store the longitude and latitude for the lifetime of the shipment and then discard the data when shipment is complete or deleted?
I have researched this issue for a few days now and no one seems to talk about it, but pretty much every map app that I have been using seem to do what I need to do, even though it feels like a grayzone if you look at the TOS.
Regardless, if you are not allowed to cache longitude/latitude, this is a huge performance hit for the map service, if every user need to lookup the same location over and over again for same shipment or any other item you may have.
As I am patiently waiting for an answer from any Apple staff, what are your own thoughts in this group?
Seriously, there is no one at Apple that can answer this simple question, whether you are allowed to save a longitude/latitude response temporary/permanently?
