1. Introduction

As a part of the ARES Information System, the XML interface offers a search for an entity so as to make the entity's data in the source registers available to the public. Everybody can take advantage of XML Service providing they observe operating conditions. The number of queries permitted for one user per day is limited. It is supposed that between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. the number of queries increases. For that reason, the limit on the number of queries is stricter for the said period of time. The limits for the day and night operation are stated in operating conditions.

In special case, if you need to use the ARES XML Service in an extremely large extent, you can:

  1. apply for an increase in the limit at ares@mfcr.cz at the Ministry of finance, and enclose the anticipated number of queries,
  2. submit the list of IP addresses making use of the XML service in question,
  3. give the contact e-mail addresses for emergencies.

The relevant technical documentation is available on request at ares@mfcr.cz.
