What are my rights on data that I scrape?

In this article, we will explore the importance of data ownership and copyright when using web scraping applications.

Browsing the Web with Browse AI

Browse AI is a powerful web automation software that enables users to turn websites into spreadsheets and APIs without any technical knowledge. The data that you receive through Browse AI is the same data you would receive if you open those sites in a web browser like Chrome. And as with any data you come across on the web, it is essential to remember that the ownership and permissible usage of the data that is shared with you depend on the specific terms and conditions of the website sharing them.

Compliance Before Scraping

To ensure a seamless and ethical experience with web scraping tools, it is imperative that users comply with website policies and respect any applicable terms of use. This means following the rules and regulations set forth by the websites and legal jurisdictions you interact with. If you have any doubts or concerns about data ownership or usage rights, it is highly recommended to consult legal counsel and carefully review the website's terms and conditions for clarity.

Why Compliance Matters

  1. Legal and Ethical Responsibility: Respecting website policies is not only a legal requirement but also an ethical responsibility. It ensures fair and responsible data usage.
  2. Protecting Your Reputation: Maintaining a trustworthy and professional image is crucial in business. Complying with website policies helps protect your reputation.
  3. Mitigating Risks: Non-compliance can lead to legal consequences and damage to your business relationships. Staying on the right side of the law is essential.


In summary, while Browse AI empowers you to extract valuable data from websites, it is crucial to remember that the terms and conditions of the respective websites and their legal jurisdiction govern data ownership and usage rights. Always prioritize compliance, consult legal counsel if needed, and maintain a professional and ethical approach to data extraction.
