Send Company Profile Data in Email Permitted?

Using the company profile API, is it permitted to send the company profile data only (no connections, etc.) to a user via email? This is information that is displayed without being logged on to LinkedIn.

Hi Gary,

Whether data is shown on our website to user is logged in or not is irrelevant, you can't access data available in our API without the user directly authenticating against our API (aka, you can't use a "shared" common login). If the user authenticated on your website and then requested to have information emailed to them by you, sure, that's permitted.
