We're hitting the API limits. What should we do?

If you have an API key, from version 0.3, you can see your current usage, and number of calls left per day/month both on your user account page at https://opencorporates.com/users/account#api_account and via the account_status API call.

I want to call the API from a widget on my website. Will I be hit by the API limits?

You shouldn't be. The API throttles usage based on the IP address of the request. In the case of a javascript widget this will be the IP address of the end user's computer, and they are unlikely to hit the limits
