I'm trying to understand the TOS of the Cloudmade's Geocoding API, but it's not very clear.

It says in section 6:

use CloudMade APIs in a manner that exceeds request volumes that are set by CloudMade in its sole discretion and published to CloudMade’s website at

Unfortunately I can't find it anywhere on their website (page on geocoding API).
