The purpose of the API is to help support complex analytical tasks that could not otherwise be achieved through use of the Dimensions platform.
It is not intended to be used to create local copies of the Dimensions data for use as an alternative to the API, which should remain as the primary source of the data. You should limit your use to what is necessary for the particular analytical task you are performing, not multiple or undefined use cases, and never in a way which may have an adverse impact on the performance or others’ use of the API.
If you require access to substantial volumes of Dimensions data, please let us know so that we can advise on the most appropriate means of getting that access.
We reserve the right to impose such limits on the API as we consider are reasonable. Please also make sure you comply with the other terms of your Dimensions subscription.
