We understand your bandwidth and server time are valuable. It is important for us and for our business to be welcomed on the internet as a well-behaved crawler. Although we try very hard to be polite there is always the possibility of a bug. If you notice any unusual activity from PDFBot please report it to: crawler -at- pdfind.com
We want to hear from you and we will respond promptly. Your feedback has helped us to improve PDFBot.
