Terms of Service

The terms in a nutshell

  1. Cloudspeakers grants you a limited terminable licence to copy and use the Cloudspeakers data, subject to certain restrictions set out in this Agreement and any additional restrictions arising from changes to Cloudspeakers Privacy Policy from time to time.
  2. The Cloudspeakers API requests are for non-commercial uses only. If you have any questions whether your use is commercial, contact us at api@cloudspeakers.com
  3. Although you are granted this licence without charge, Cloudspeakers reserves the right to share in revenue generated from your use of Cloudspeakers data in future on terms to be negotiated in good faith between Cloudspeakers and you.
  4. This Agreement covers only your use of Cloudspeakers data. You must not sub-license the Cloudspeakers data to others.
  5. This Agreement does not entitle you to stream music or other content available on the Cloudspeakers Site.
  6. You must not transmit, export, transfer, divert, or send any Cloudspeakers data to any country without obtaining any consents or authorisations required by law or regulation in such country.
  7. You must credit Cloudspeakers and include links to the Cloudspeakers site when you use the Cloudspeakers data and position that link just above or below your representation of the Cloudspeakers data.

Please note:

  • Please use an identifiable User-Agent header on all requests. This helps our logging and reduces the risk of you getting banned.
  • Use common sense when deciding how many calls to make. For example, if you're making a web application, try not to hit the API on page load. Your account may be suspended if your application is continuously making several calls per second.
  • We assume that you are using an RFC 3986-compliant HTTP client to access the web services. In particular, pay attention to your urlencoding. This will not be an issue for 99% of developers.
