    Can I persist information

    I just want to know whether I can persist the information in my db or not. I want to do this to reduce the hits to the server.

    I'd say that is allowed as it will reduce load on both ends. Unless they come and say no, go for it (which is really unlikely)

    I can't see a situation where that would be bad, however once they allow us to get private game data through OAuth, I imagine that we would be discouraged from storing the private games.

    Yes, it's allowed and probably expected that users will be doing this.

    Ideally you should query match/player information only once to reduce load to the api. In case you need many queries like when you build a mobile app or such, it might even be wise to query a mirror database server you set up instead of the dota web api.
