Welcome to FATMAP.

FATMAP exists to help you find better, safer adventures in the outdoors.

We aim to make your rights and responsibilities with respect to these terms clear and easy to understand. If you have any questions about these terms, you can contact us any time at hello@fatmap.com.



1. A few words about safety

1.1. At FATMAP, we put your safety first. Please read these safety warnings carefully.


1.2. Participating in mountain or outdoor sports is potentially dangerous and it is your responsibility to always evaluate the risks of taking part in an activity in any particular area or particular conditions. You should never ski, bike or hike outside of your ability or fitness level, or in such places, or in such a way, or at such a speed as to endanger yourself, other mountain users or other people's property. Your choice to ski, bike or hike on any particular slope or along any particular route is solely your decision and is undertaken at your own risk.


1.3. It is your responsibility to check the weather forecast and safety bulletins such as the avalanche forecast. Always make sure you have the right equipment for the terrain and the conditions, tell people where you are going and always have a back-up plan. The outdoors is a potentially dangerous and dynamic environment and requires you to check the physical conditions on the mountain. We strongly recommend that you are accompanied by a qualified and experienced professional.


1.4. When you are in any resort, national park or outdoor area, familiarise yourself with, and abide by, the rules and regulations at all times.


1.5. You use the FATMAP App at your own risk. The FATMAP App is not a safety device and must not be relied upon as a navigation safety tool. The FATMAP App is for recreational use only. Don't undertake any outdoor activity with a mobile device in your hand, and only use the FATMAP app while stationary.


1.6. Ultimately, your safety is YOUR responsibility. Be sensible, stay alert and respect the mountain and other people.
