Frequently asked questions

What is Upwork?

Upwork is a global freelancing platform where businesses and independent professionals connect and collaborate remotely. It provides a marketplace for clients to hire freelancers for a variety of services such as writing, graphic design, web development, marketing, and more. Upwork allows businesses to post jobs, review portfolios, and communicate with potential freelancers to find the best match for their project. For freelancers, it offers the opportunity to find work, build a portfolio, and establish relationships with clients worldwide.

Is scraping Upwork legal?

The legality of web scraping, including platforms like Upwork, largely depends on the terms of service of the specific website and the laws of the country where the scraping is taking place. In some cases, scraping data from a website without permission could be considered illegal and may violate copyright laws, computer fraud and abuse laws, or data protection laws. Upwork's terms of service, for instance, prohibit the use of "robots, spiders, scrapers, or other automated means to access the Site and Service for any purpose without our express written permission." Therefore, scraping Upwork without explicit permission would likely be considered illegal. It's always recommended to seek legal advice before engaging in web scraping activities.
