This function is offered by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, St John's Innovation Center, Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0WS, United Kingdom. By using this map function, your IP address is forwarded to OpenStreetMap.

The API servers, the databases and the servers of auxiliary services are currently located in the United Kingdom (Great Britain and Northern Ireland) and in the Netherlands.
