MetaLocator drives highly qualified traffic directly to retailer Web sites. To do this, we require structured data from the retailer, and that may involve crawling a product directory, or obtaining data from a retailer provided API. MetaLocator is committed to performing data acquisition in alignment with the content owner’s rights, preferences and rules. To that end, the following practices are observed:
- Opt-out: Retailers may opt-out of participation at will. Requests to be removed are honored without question.
- Robots.txt: MetaLocator crawlers respect robots.txt rules
- No-Circumvention: MetaLocator will not attempt to circumnavigate crawler-prevention methods such as captcha codes, content protection networks or similar
- User-Agent: MetaLocator will represent itself accurately in the User Agent string of the crawler.
