Use of API

We provide access to portions of our service through an API enabling people to build applications on top of our platform. The basic service is free and we offer paid upgrades for additional features and services. Free API accounts have a daily limit (currently 2,000 "tokens") for each person or organisation. To discuss an upgrade please contact

A typical "query" to our platform will consume one token; a natural language call will consume five tokens. This limit may be automatically enforced and you agree not to use multiple accounts or IP addresses or any other means to circumvent any enforcement of the limit. If you require higher volume API use we would be delighted to talk to you to discuss an increased limit. Please email

In order to support caching, it is acceptable to retain and reuse data returned from API calls to our platform for a reasonable period of time. However, what is reasonable will be determined by the nature of the data and how quickly it is likely to change. Under no circumstances should any data delivered or derived from calls to our API be retained for more than 28 days without being refreshed. If you wish to use our API to create data or modify data that you intend will persist permanently, please ask permission by contacting us at

With a free API account, mashups using our API services must display our logo and and link back to our site on http://www.evi.com/. With the direct answer service the question URL returned in the tkquestionurl tag should be used. If you wish to avoid this requirement, please contact us at
