| 3. Destructions of GeoLite2 Database and GeoLite2 Data. From time to
| time, MaxMind will release an updated version of the GeoLite2
| Databases, and you agree to promptly use the updated version of the
| GeoLite2 Databases. You shall cease use of and destroy (i) any old
| versions of the Services within thirty (30) days following the
| release of the updated GeoLite2 Databases; and (ii) all Services
| immediately upon termination of the license under this
| Agreement. Upon request, you shall provide MaxMind with written
| confirmation of such destruction.
That looks thoroughly non-free to me, and it is also highly
impractical. It appears to be the intent that this clause overrides
the permissions normally afforded by the CC-BY-SA license.
