Concerns about privacy and legality of data download
I am a high school student and I am making a project about generating terrain in Unity with textures from a sattelite image and there is one thing that bugs me.
The whole project is non-profitable, for educational purposes only and the whole point is generating a terrain with its specific plants and animal species, attached with information from Wikipedia.
I made my research about the different ways to show the height of a point on the map and the most practical way are the heightmaps, specifically SRTM3.
I found this website https://terrain.party , that people can use, however due to some restrictions I have to make my own implementation of that.
And to do that I need to download the .jpg/.png files of the height map, however while I was browsing for them I saw a specific message(see the attachment) that made me anxious and nervous, if downloading that is actually legal.
I started reading every terms & conditions, documentations just to see if I am authorized.
And I really did not find specific paragraph or some kind of text that tells me the exact answer.
So am I in the clear? Can I download them safely and is there something that I should consider?
