TeeGraspBot (or TeeRaidBot) is our t-shirt and apparel finding software. It finds t-shirts and puts them into our database of custom apparel. Our database is also found on TeeRaid - our search engine for customers to find custom apparel to buy. Our bot crawls the internet to find publicly accessible information, data and files (known as content onwards), very similar to how Googlebot works.
Sellers may manually remove all of their campaigns. Please visit here to remove your campaigns. Removing one of your campaigns from TeeGrasp will in most cases hide all of your campaigns.
Some platforms allow sellers to set the privacy option of their campaigns and stores to search engines. Where available, our bot will obey meta tag robots instructions, by adding the following HTML tag to the page:
<meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
If this feature is not available on the platform, then we will obey robots exclusion protocol. To disable our bot from crawling your website, inside the root level domain, a file should be created called "robots.txt". Our bot name is TeeGraspBot (or TeeRaidBot) - to disallow access to pages please place the following in your robots.txt file:
Where url-to-disallow should be replaced with the URL/address to disallow. You may also use an asterisk (*) to denote a wildcard (any set of characters). All robots.txt files are inspected every 1 hour, so you should see our bot drop all requests to your website after that period of time.
To prevent overloading of servers leading to the possibility of causing service disruption and to minimise footprint, our bot will self rate-limit to a maximum of 1 request per second per domain. However, in most cases we crawl much slower than this, depending on the size of your website.
We also support and adhere to international copyright laws with regards to crawled content. If you believe our bot has picked up copyrighted content, for which you are the copyright owner and you do not wish for your content to appear in our database, we please ask you to email us proof of copyright ownership, the full URL/address of the content in question, along with two scanned official forms of personally identifiable information (for example, but not limited to passport or official drivers licence) to [email protected] and our team can resolve this for you as quickly as possible. Please note that a DMCA holds no legal standing because we are operating out of the UK and the EU.
If you have any further questions or concerns about our bot, please contact us at [email protected].
