Frequently asked questions

What is Kickstarter?

Kickstarter is a popular crowdfunding platform that allows individuals and businesses to raise funds for creative projects. These projects can range from films, music, art, and design to technology and publishing. Creators present their project on the platform, set a fundraising goal, and a deadline for reaching this goal. Backers who are interested in the project can pledge money to support it. Kickstarter operates on an all-or-nothing funding model, meaning if the project doesn't reach its funding goal, the backers are not charged and the project receives no money. This platform has become a popular choice for entrepreneurs and creatives to bring their ideas to life.

Is scraping Kickstarter legal?

The legality of web scraping, including sites like Kickstarter, largely depends on the jurisdiction and the specific circumstances. While it's not explicitly illegal in many places, it can potentially violate terms of service or privacy laws, especially if the data is used for commercial purposes or is obtained without consent. It's always recommended to review the website's terms of service and privacy policy, and if in doubt, seek legal advice. It's also important to note that excessive scraping can lead to IP bans or other penalties from the website. Therefore, while it's technically possible to scrape data from Kickstarter, it's crucial to do so responsibly and ethically.
