A legal entity is qualified as a "non-profit organisation", when considered as such by national or international law (international organisations as well as any specialized agency set up by international organisations). Generally, as a consequence, any possible profits have to be reinvested within the organisation itself and cannot be distributed. The quality of being a non-profit organisation has to be proven by your statute.

The ALA's data and code are freely available and its services are based on web services.
