Before we delve into the legal terminology below, I'd first like to thank you for considering our service. The following 'Terms of Service' were written by our Solicitors (what we call Lawyers here in the U.K.) but don't set out anything that I think would come as a surprise to a reasonable person.
The API is here for your own use and convenience, and we ask that you don't do anything to disrupt the service, the use of the service, or other services. You're also not permitted to use scan results as part of another product offering or service, scans are intended to monitor your own sites.
If you'd like to use our service as part of another product or service you offer, sometimes known as "white-labelling", please contact us as we have a specific product to allow use of our scanning engine in this way: [email protected]
