The data download limit will be 500,000 REQUESTS per day.
If you ask for 20 fields for 2000 instruments for 500 days in one
function call, that counts as one request.

If you perform any sort of transformation or analysis on the data,
it is permissible to distribute the results (at least within your firm.)
