TOS 7. (e) 'you shall not use any manual or automated software, devices or other processes (including but not limited to spiders, robots, scrapers, crawlers, avatars, data mining tools or the like) to "scrape" or download data from the Services'

Crossposted from SO https://stackoverflow.com/questions/48610522/webscraping-in-allrecipes-com-using-perl after noone wanted to help you break the TOS there...

    Hi Anonymous Monk,

    What has TOS 7(e), from http://www.meredith.com/legal/terms, got to do with the site Emmasue is dealing with, i.e. http://allrecipes.com ?

      Probably the AM followed the link "Terms of Service" on the http://allrecipes.com Website. At least, when I tried that, I came to the aforementioned legal terms. Admittedly, due to "infinite scroll" it was a bit difficult to find that link on the bottom of the page…
        Good point - I see it now.  Odd that they put their TOS under a different domain, but I gues it saves the owner from having to maintain one TOS page for each of their domains.

      Because that is where you go when you click on "terms of service"?
