The website now has an attriution in the lower right corner:

> © Geopoi, Map Data: © Here, OpenStreetMap contributors

"Here" is a link to http://here.com/
"OpenStreetMap" is a link to http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright

I think that this is not enough. Because they mix data they should
declare which data is from where. There should be a link to website (or
a pop-up) with a text like this:

The map data is from following sources:
Building polygons and landuse polygons are from OpenStreetMap ©
OpenStreetMap contributors, licensed ODbL 1.0.
All other data is either from <othersources>.

The map data is still available under ODbL and the user should be able
to know which data he can use free.

Best regards
