IVR (voice) app to access Zillow API data

Hi. We're thinking about building a voice interface (for mobile and fixed-line telephone based access) to Zillow and would like to know if this is allowed according to the Terms of Use (ToU), provided the following two points:

 

1) We would play a prompt that says that our data source is Zillow and the caller should visit Zillow.com when on a PC. This is would be our "Link" back to Zillow and our approach to promote the Zillow brand using voice/IVR in order to comply with ToU.

 

2) We would also have a Web UI to complement the voice interface (with links back to Zillow as well as appropriate Zillow branding)

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Will be very interested in hearing Zillow response.

Few thoughts ....

1)How will you monetize this since Zillow expects to give the API data for FREE without asking for $ or personal info (like email). Advertisement revenue alone may not justify the development cost?

2)This may lead to the abuse the system by violating their terms and will require implementing extra security measures and control by both Zillow and IVR app.
