Facebook (events) scraping [legality]


#1

Facebook has a robots.txt that Disallows /
Facebook also has a special terms and conditions document about scraping here https://www.facebook.com/apps/site_scraping_tos_terms.php

I only need about 10 pages’ event data, checked around 3 times a day, for a simple DJ website.
What would be the worst that could happen from a legal standpoint if Facebook finds out I’m scraping.

Would worst case be that my Apify account gets blocked, or will there be other anticipated repercussions ?

Thank you

Hello,

we’re not in a position here to make any legal recommendations, but scraping 10 pages 3 times a day will fly under the radar of any scraping protections. Don’t worry.
