I wasn't trying to be hostile or condescending... did I come across that
way?   I was simply asking questions out of curiosity.

Sure I might have found answers in the terms of service, but I was making
assumptions based on the fact that the page linked says "Free" and "For
Developers" so I never opened the terms of service... even if I had, I
would have guessed you guys dug a little deeper than what was
published (for example you may have emailed the site owners to see if they
would consider an open source option).
