Our intentions are pretty simple, we want to help developers create new uses for our data, not allow competitors to steal our hard work and use it against us. Were also trying to run a business, this is what we do for a living, so please don't try to undermine our efforts to make this available to others. Therefore, most of you can take full advantage of BCWS without any worry, but here's a short list of things you can't do with it - the complete agreement with all its fine print glory is available here as well.
Caching is necessary in high volume situations, but you cannot retain a copy of our data for longer than 1 hour. You have to make another call to the service to start the clock over again.
You cannot make the data available in its raw form, for free or for fee.
You cannot access our data if you're a competitor, or work with a competitor.
You cannot try to reverse engineer our classification or scoring methods.
