I am building a website builder for small businesses. During the onboarding process the user provides his/her business social media accounts.
I am interested on extracting the public information in the business social media accounts (phone number, email, business location, etc.) to autocomplete the sign up form.
I have been looking at each social network terms of service and as expected all of them have a clause against automated data collection.
However most of the examples are aimed at crawling and scraping data in bulk. What I want to know is if it's legal to extract public data that belongs to the user itself and don't store it until the user submits the form.
You must not crawl, scrape, or otherwise cache any content from Instagram including but not limited to user profiles and photos.
You will not engage in Automated Data Collection without Facebook's express written permission.
(a) No Scraping. Customer will not export, extract, or otherwise scrape Google Maps Content for use outside the Services. For example, Customer will not: (i) pre-fetch, index, store, reshare, or rehost Google Maps Content outside the services; (ii) bulk download Google Maps tiles, Street View images, geocodes, directions, distance matrix results, roads information, places information, elevation values, and time zone details; (iii) copy and save business names, addresses, or user reviews; or (iv) use Google Maps Content with text-to-speech services.
