Information from the transaction history page

We use AdWords manager account and we have a lot of clients, we want to automate verification for accounts balance. I see that there is no API method for this.
How can we automatically get information from the transaction history page ("select client" => gear icon => Billing => Transaction history) ?
Is it permissible to use scripts to retrieve this data through AdWords UI?

 

Regards,
Andrew

Legally, no. Terms vary from country to country - here is an example from https://www.google.com/intl/en_us/adwords/select/TCNetApiUS.html

3. AdWords API Report Data.
d. Data Collection. Except as expressly permitted by Google under a Google product or service feature, you shall not use any automated means (for example scraping or robots) other than the AdWords API to access, query or otherwise collect Google-related information from Google, the AdWords Program or any website owned or operated by Google or a Google partner site that displays Google advertising (collectively "Google Scraping").
