What sorts of details for the URL are you interested in?

From: https://commoncrawl.org/the-data/get-started/ if you look at the WARC examples, they contain info like metadata about the web page, etc. It also contains the html of the page which you could use for deriving the summary (I assume you mean textual summary?). Although if you're only interested in the text you can look at the WET examples (which is just text, not the raw html). Hope this helps.

Thanks for guiding on usage of WARC and WET.

Get details for URL:
- Title, description and meta
- H1, h2... of home page
- text on home page (only in worst case)

Summary:
- How these websites are similar to each other

Regarding textual summary:
- Yes, it can be generated, but currently not considering as immediate work item. (Other use case is relation between keywords and URLs).

On https://commoncrawl.org/terms-of-use/ , following usage is restricted. Hence, requesting to confirm, if above use case is allowed or not.
  • Communicate for commercial solicitation

Regards,
Vijay

You should ask your lawyer. No one here can give you legal advice. My personal interpretation of that bullet is that it prohibits illegal spam, but you should get your lawyers interpretation of the Terms of Use and whether or not your application falls within them. Note what falls within the scope of "Don't do anything illegal with Common Crawl" may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, which is another good reason to get your lawyer to weigh in.
