I've had a currency widget made for me which is based on http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select

I am wondering if I can use it on my site, which even though it not more than a hobby could be considered commercial inasmuch as it has affliate adverts.

How could I ask Yahoo to confirm if I can use it?

Thank you

I think this is off topic, considered this is a quant board.

However, if you earn money (even just a little) on the site, I'm pretty sure it will be considered a commercial site.

Yahoo! encourage you to register your site, if they approve the site, then you are good to go.

Taken from "Yahoo! Developer Network Guidelines":

Please see our FAQ for more information about these non-commercial use only services.
