Term and Conditions

I. How Area301 Leads Finder Works

  1. Area301 works as an intelligent RSS reader (a general purpose web and information browser), which analyzes content (taken from RSS Feeds and gathered via available 3rd party APIs) and displays filtered entries of this content for the users to use it for their own personal use.
  2. We do not modify content of the RSS Feed entries, and we link any curated content to all the original sources.
  3. We do not store data from RSS feeds for any commercial use, we do not republish it, resell or claim it as ours.
  4. We do not copy, reproduce, modify, create derivative works from, distribute, or publicly display any content.
  5. We are not selling leads, our users do not pay for data but for an interface which they can use to display data from different sources for their own personal use. By sources, we mean websites which provide publicly available RSS Feeds or APIs with web design leads.
  6. Area301 is not interacting with any 3rd party sites, we do not use robots, spiders, scripts, scrapers, crawlers, etc. to collect data. The only sources of data are publicly available RSS Feeds or APIs, which are used by our users for their own personal use.
  7. We are NOT interacting with 3rd party services by sending any requests to their servers (other than what is allowed via API), there is no activity such as unpermitted downloading, uploading, posting, flagging, emailing, search, or any other mobile or desktop use of the content on the 3rd party websites.
  8. We do not take any action which imposes or may impose an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on 3rd party infrastructure.
  9. We do NOT interfere or attempt to interfere with the proper operation of the 3rd party websites or any activities conducted on their properties.

II. Collecting data

  1. We do NOT collect or modify information for commercial or any other use.
  2. We keep some information about data as cached content for a short period of time (about 1 month) for the purpose of better serving our users by delivering the content faster. After this period, the data is removed from our service. During the time of storing it as cached content, we use it only to display, as is, to users. We do not make any commercial use of this data.

III. Use of APIs and RSS Feeds

  1. In cases when we use publicly available APIs, we follow all the rules and conditions associated with a particular API. This includes, but is not limited to, restricting the amount of calls to the API per day and secure storing of API keys.
  2. Any use of RSS Feeds is performed by our users for their own personal use. Area301 is just a tool to display those results.
  3. We strictly follow the “Terms and Conditions” and “Privacy Policy” of websites that we are taking RSS feeds from and using APIs. If you have any objection or feel we are breaking any rules, please contact us by using contact form.
