Retailer Commitment

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.

Questions regarding our crawler or these policies can be directed to support@metalocator.com.
