Valids has a no tolerance spam policy. “Spam” means unsolicited communication to persons with whom our users do not have a business relationship or who have not specifically requested (opted-in to) our users’ mailings.
We monitor the Services for patterns consistent with verifying non-opted-in email addresses. A user’s account will be terminated if the user verifies non-opted-in email addresses. Please report any suspected abuse to Valids. ISPs and Blacklist administrators may also contact us at Valids. Please forward the complete SMTP logs for the relevant SMTP transaction(s). We will take the appropriate action against the verifier of the email address(es) in question.
To use our Services, you must agree to verify only permission-based email addresses. This means all recipients must have opted-in to receive communications from the verifying entity.
An opt-in can occur either via a sign-up form on a web site, at a point-of-sale sign-up form, or on a physical sign-up sheet. Purchased lists may not be used with the Services, regardless of the source or permission status.
