Could you explain in a bit more detail what you mean here? Specifically, when you say "a map" what do you mean?

Hi In fact, I'm making a map based on OpenStreetMap using Umap I'd like to disable the "download the data" one can find behind the "share" button (where one find also the code to embedded the map)

Thanks - I've updated the tags and title to make that clear.

You can control Map permissions (editing & sharing) via the key icon on the editing panel RHS. (I'm not sure if this is the sort of answer you want).

Well, that was not the answer I was seeking but thanks :) And finally, I manage to do it (disallowing the downloadings of the data) by simply not showing the "Share" button.

As you've mentioned, you can hide the "share" button that provide the "download data" link. But, consider that the best way is to mention the usage license of your data. As umap will display your data in a web-browser, it will be easy with some javascript to fetch your data ;-)
