Caching IP addresses and phone numbers locally

Can we cache SecData IP addresses and phone numbers locally? Perhaps we could extract the most recent entries and cache them on our server?

You should not attempt to cache responses locally for two reasons:

  1. It violates the terms of service of SecData
  2. The SecData database changes quickly and your cache will not be up to date

We should also point out that SecData includes anti-scraping technology. If our servers detect that a user is extracting large amounts of data (randomly/in sequence) then SecData will simply return negative responses (not a hacker IP / fraud phone number) for all queries not already answered at least once.
