Reviewbox visits each retail site to gather all the information you see in our application.
Reviewbox software visits the web page of each of your product listings on each retail site several times each day to record the relevant information. This is the same concept as if you were to visit the site yourself and write down all the information manually. Except that Reviewbox does it a lot more efficiently!
Automated monitoring of public websites is known as web scraping. It is legal.
In late 2019, the US Court of Appeals denied LinkedIn’s request to prevent HiQ, an analytics company, from scraping its data. The decision was a historic moment in that it confirmed that any data that is publicly available and not copyrighted is fair game for web scraping.
