How do we prevent misusage?


We're dedicated to ensure the responsible and ethical use of our database search engine, we have implemented robust measures to prevent misuse. We tackle web scraping by employing techniques such as rate limiting, which restricts the number of requests from a single source within a specific time frame. Additionally, we utilize API rate limiting, which sets predefined limits on the number of API requests allowed per API key within a given timeframe. Breaching these limits results in temporary access restrictions, ensuring fair access for all users. API IP authorization further enhances our security by allowing only authorized IP addresses to access our API, effectively safeguarding against unauthorized access attempts. These combined methods create a secure and reliable experience for our users.
