I want to retrieve information from the website through an automated process. I have noticed in the TOU, section 12c that it says:
No Data Mining.
You agree that you will not (a) obtain or attempt to obtain any information from the Service or any Game using any method not expressly permitted by Blizzard; (b) intercept, examine or otherwise observe any proprietary communications protocol used by a client or the Service, whether through the use of a network analyzer, packet sniffer or other device; (c) use any third-party software to collect information from or through a Game client or the Service, including without limitation information about your character, any Account registered to you, virtual items, other players, or other Game data.
I would like to know where I can find a list of expressly permitted methods to retrieve this information.
I don't want to rely on SC2ranks either, as the data is slow to update (unless you are in the top 2% of the global playerbase) and the site is unreliable.
