I've read IMBd's policy on data scraping for their movie data, but it did not mention anything about user created lists like "my favorite movies of 2014", "102 movies to watch", etc. I see they have export options. Are we allowed to use this data as part of a non-commercial, personal/educational software?

Hi James,

You can use the exported CSC file for non-commercial use once it's been downloaded, but our system will not permit programmatic scraping of any page on the IMDb site.
