Token request implications

By making a request for token, you are accepting to abide by the Terms of Use of the Red List. If such Terms of use are found not to be followed, the token will be disabled for use.

API Usage

  1. If you are using the token from the examples on the API Reference page, for extracting information rather than making a request for a token, you run the risk of getting your access to the API blocked. We monitor constantly and will not tolerate abuse.
  2. We also expect proper use of the API - making too many frequent calls, or too many calls per day might also get your access blocked temporarily. We have to maintain steps so that the API is usable by everyone; so if you feel you are a heavy API user, please contact the Red List Unit, as maybe the API is not the best option for you.
  3. If you need to make frequent calls in one go, please do use at least an appropriate delay between your calls.
