Selenium Project for Scraping Info- Does it violate replit terms and policy?

Hi!!

I have a Python/Flask project that uses Selenium for scrapping data from certain webpages.
The webpages doesnt have an issue when scrapping on them and they don´t prohibite it in their terms.

But i dont know if this platform (Replit), bans a team account if it uses a project that does this type of work?

Thanks

Hi @choriegojose !
I found this in the ToS:

Modify, adapt, translate, or reverse engineer any portion of the Service. Without limitation you may not engage in practices of “screen scraping,” “database scraping” or any other practice or activity the purpose of which is to obtain lists of users, portions of a database, copy visuals or business methods, or other lists or information from the Service, in any manner and any quantities not authorized by Replit in writing or use Replit for competitive purposes;

Is that what you are looking for?

Scraping any part of Replit or any other platforms that prohbit scraping in their Terms of Service is against Replit ToS.

Any other site is fair game and you’re free to do what you wish.
