Ethical Scraping

What is ethical scraping?

The act of strictly obtaining data from websites that are regarded as public is known as ethical web scraping. If a public API is available, use it instead of scraping the data directly if it has the information you need. Use a user agent string to verify your identity with your data. Set a realistic rate for data scraping and limit or throttle the number of requests per second.
