You shall not use or launch any automated system (including, without limitation, any robot, spider or offline reader) that accesses the Web Services in a manner that sends more request messages to the Merso Labs servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a publicly available, standard (i.e. not modified) web browser.
You shall not copy, reproduce, distribute, transmit, broadcast, display, sell, license, or otherwise exploit any Data for any other purposes without the prior written consent of Merso Labs.
Nothing in these restrictions shall limit your ability to access Data from another lawful source, such as another ag data platform to which you are a subscriber, provided that source has integrated into the Web Services by permission.
