14. API & Data Usage
Usage of IPQualityScore's APIs and data is granted given that the user does not engage in the following activities:
15. Free Account Limitations
Users may not create multiple accounts with the purpose of accessing duplicate monthly free credits. Abusing the site's monthly free credit allowance may result in suspension of accounts and service. Please contact support if your team requires multiple accounts.
16. Premium Plans & Queries
Each lookup through our tools and services will consume a query credit from the user's account balance, with the exception of retrieving historical account data. Eligible user accounts have access to free monthly credits to test our services before making a purchase. IPQS has a right to deny free credits for any reason including suspected duplicate accounts or abusive users. Query packs and premium plan purchases are final as we allocate server resources based on the current volume of paid plans. Each premium account plan has tiered limits for viewing historic data from past lookups through the user dashboard. While the limits are very generous and most accounts do not exceed these limits, please inform us if you are interested in preserving historic data for a lengthier time period.
17. Affiliate Program & Referrals
New users that sign up through an existing user's unique referral URL, known as "Referrals", will generate 25% commission up to $500 per sale for an account's first recurring purchase. Both the referral and referring users' account must be in good standing to qualify for earnings through the IPQS affiliate program. Duplicate or related accounts are not eligible to receive referral earnings. Referral earnings will be paid on a NET 60 payment schedule.
18. Data Sharing & Data Processing
Clients using our service may provide IPQualityScore with transactional or user information, which may include IP addresses, names, email addresses, billing details, phone numbers, and similar user data.

This data may also be used to improve machine learning algorithms for other IPQS clients.
