I'm curious about data provided publicly by data.stackexchange.com. It is also available at archive.org. Can I use it for professional purpose? I would like to use only tag names.

    If you want a precise answer, you will need to define "professional purposes". But, in general, you can use the data however you like, as long as you provide attribution. – Cody Gray Feb 10 '19 at 11:15
  • "Professional purposes" means in personal web application. And what do you mean by provide attribution? – Ameer Hamza Feb 10 '19 at 11:27

  • It means that I've to mention data.stackexchange.com as source, in my application. Then I can use tag names freely. Am I right? and where to provide attribution? in terms & conditions? – Ameer Hamza Feb 10 '19 at 11:38
