API and Database Usage

Subject to the terms herein, WhoisFreaks will provide you with access to WhoisFreaks API and/or Database.

One aspect of WhoisFreaks' products is the provision of databases to our customers. A purchased database license is valid with limit in time, for the available database edition at the time of the purchase, and all subsequent database editions available during any included update period. This license grants the buyer the rights to exploit - but not redistribute in any form, including derivative works, or making available to the public through any means.

The database is licensed per server (physical or virtual) and such servers can have one or more physical or virtual cores. The organization or individual can use one deployment for as many projects running on as many physical or virtual servers or devices as necessary, as long as they are all owned by or leased to the same physical or legal entity. This license explicitly prohibits usage of the database to offer free or commercial IP geolocation API services or any other related service that would conflict with the services offered by WhoisFreaks. The Licensee acknowledges that it has no rights to the WhoisFreaks intellectual property and all such rights shall belong to WhoisFreaks only.

This database license can’t be bundled with the applications which are to be deployed outside of the organization's infrastructure such as on premise applications which will run under licensee's customers infrastructure. For such use cases, you must purchase a second redistributable license from WhoisFreaks.

Payment and Billing

The WhoisFreaks API and Database Services are subscription-based services (SaaS). You pay in advance for your plan which gives you a fixed amount of API requests for a fixed period (monthly or yearly).

For monthly plans, the API requests for your plan will expire after 30 days. For yearly plans, the request count will expire after a year.

If you exceed requests for a period of time, your requests will still be served. You will have to pay a surcharge as per your plan pricing states.

You will be automatically charged at the end of a billing period. If your payment fails for a billing period, you will be notified via email. Three attempts will be made to charge your card. If the payment does not go through after the 3rd attempt, your account will be suspended and we will stop serving your API requests until the payment is completed.

When you sign up at Whoisfreaks.com, you will be given 100 free API credits. Once you consume 100 credits, your requests will not be served.

In the case of database, you get the license to provision the DB on fixed amount of physical or virtual servers. If you need to provision on more servers, you’ll have to buy more licenses. You can however deploy one licensed database onto one development server and unlimited development workstations.
