If do you have an automated way to collect Data sent through the bot, the [5. FreeStuff API] paragraph of this ToS applies to you and you do need to get an API key to be allowed to use the Data collected.

You may not use the MP for malicious actions. This includes but is not limited to: Using the Platform to harm other users in any way possible or using the Platform to cause harm to FreeStuff or it’s affiliates.

5.1 Your right to use the API
The API can mainly be used to access information about current deals and offers, as well as general information about computer games or software. In order to interact with the API, you will need to acquire and use an API Key (which goes beyond the scope of this Policy). Without an API Key given out by FreeStuff you may not interact (or try to interact) with the API.

This applies for both your own brand as well as any third party services or vendors.
Content visible through the use of our API might be subject to Copyright outside of FreeStuff’s reach. We cannot be held responsible for any Copyright infractions caused by sharing Data visible through our API. It is in your hands to check the content before publishing it.
