It appears that you selectively missed the part that applies:

"You agree that you will use this data only for lawful purposes and 
that, under no circumstances will you use this data to: (a) [...] or (b) 
enable high volume, automated, electronic processes that send queries or 
data to the systems of Registry Operator or any ICANN-Accredited 
Registrar, except as reasonably necessary to register domain names or 
modify existing registrations."
