Is this allowed - caching of results?

Hi, I want to provide a facility that allows users to enter their address which I will use to perform a GIS lookup. Ideally, I would like to store these coordinates against the person's name, to avoid the need for multiple lookups. Does this violate the T&C which states that I may not "store or cache any MapQuest Data". Oherwise I may run he risk of overflowing my 15k limit

Yup, this is against that
Yup, this is against that part of the terms. The address will need to be re-geocoded with each use.

Curses, so if I've got (say)

Curses, so if I've got (say) 5000 addresses and I want to do a travelling saleman route, I'll have to geoencode each address, do my processing and then throw away the results. Very disappointing. Looks like mapquest is not for me.

If you're using those results
If you're using those results in a single process, that's fine. But saving those addresses for repeated future use is against the T&Cs.
