Terms and Conditions of Email Address Checker
This agreement is between you, the subscriber to the Email Address Checker service, and Email Verify Ltd who hosts the Email Address Checker service.
Fulfilment & Delivery
For self-service batch services, results are usually delivered within 24 hours. This can be longer if there is particularly busy load on the servers.
We will send your access details (i.e. logon user name and password) to the email address that you nominated during the sign-up process.
For API access, we will send your API key within 48 hours of payment (excluding weekends and UK Bank Holidays).
Seven Day Money Back Guarantee Period
The Email Verify money back period is for 7 days and is for self-service batch services only. Our money back guarantee does not apply to the API service nor to managed batch services. If you do not wish to continue with the service, you must cancel within the 7 day period by cancelling your subscription in your Email Address Checker account and contacting Email Verify requesting a refund. Please supply your email address and (optional) reason for cancellation for our customer service records.
Month to Month Term for Subscription Accounts
After the service setup is complete, your account will be automatically renewed on a month to month basis at the then current monthly subscription rate. There is a 2 month minimum term of service (3 month where indicated on our signup pages). You may cancel the service at any time after the minimum term of service by contacting support within your Email Checker account. Service is billed each service month (based on the day of the month you signed up for service) for the following month and we cannot give any refunds for partial month’s service.
Security and Reliability
The security and reliability of the Email Address Checker service is our highest priority. Email Verify works hard to run a solid, hassle-free service. However, there are times when we cannot guarantee 100% reliability:
- Internet congestion
- Automatic System Updates – Email Verify’s servers regularly update themselves with patches and bug fixes. Occasionally, these patches/fixes can affect our servers in an unexpected, detrimental way. Many of these patches/fixes are installed automatically and cannot always be tested prior to their implementation.
- Terrorist attack
- Acts of God
- Virus/Worm/Denial of Service Attack
You specifically agree that Email Verify cannot be held liable for any missing data, corrupted data, incorrect transmission of data, failure to provide service, delay of service provision or anything in any way connected to the Email Address Checker service in excess of the cost of service provided. Cumulative liability of Email Verify to a customer shall not exceed the total monthly service fee of the immediate prior one month of service.
Email Verify will only use the data passed by the Client for the sole purpose of verifying the email address and will not do anything else with the data other than outlined by the Client. Email addresses are stored in memory for up to 14 days purely for the purpose of caching the validation result to speed up the response time if the same email address is requested multiple times during this period.
Accuracy of Email Address Checking
Checking of email addresses is a complex process involving our servers communicating with external mail servers. A service of this nature cannot be 100% accurate due to factors outside of our control such as:
- Email server down or not contactable
- No mail servers defined for a domain
- Email server busy
- Mail box is full / exceeds quota
- Mail sever responds with incorrect data. Specifically, mail servers that are configured to always respond that an email address exists (whether, in reality, it does or not)
Other factors that can adversely affect accuracy include non-standard mail server implementations such as:
Incorrect Responses From Mail Servers
Some mail servers are configured to report “valid” email boxes regardless of whether they exist or not. These “false positive” results may indicate a mail box is valid when, in fact, it is not.
Examples of these types of mail servers include (but not limited to) some installations Microsoft Exchange Server. We do our best to identify these types of servers with a “Blocked/rejected” status but cannot guarantee that this flag is applied in 100% of cases.
In the case of these “false positive” results, the only way of establishing a mail box validity is by sending an email to the recipient and asking them to respond.
Issues With Various “Free” Web Mail Providers
The following web based email providers have been known to issue incorrect responses to our email checker. Examples of these are:
- Hotmail / Live / MSN
You agree and understand that our Email Address Checking services cannot, therefore, be 100% accurate.
Issues with other mail providers or Internet Service Providers (ISPs)
Some email servers and/or ISPs implement extremely aggressive anti-spam policies. These policies can prevent our service from establishing the required network connection to allow email address checking. Where possible, we mark these services with a “blocked/rejected” status but cannot guarantee this in 100% of cases.
Even with the external factors listed above, our email address checking services have been carefully engineered to deliver the best possible accuracy of any solution on the market. Therefore, we state our accuracy figures as between 85 to 90% based on a typical list of email addresses.
In testing, we were able to achieve our stated accuracy on a repeatable basis and using several different email lists in excess of 2,000 email addresses per list.
Transmission of Data
You agree that Email Verify is not responsible for any unauthorized access or modification of your data stored by or transmitted via the Email Address Checker service. You also agree that Email Verify is not responsible or liable for any content sent using, or received from, the Email Address Checker service including that which may be illegal, obscene, defamatory, threatening or that may violate any trademark or copyright.
Size of Account
Each account has a storage capacity or limit. This is done to protect your account and others from potentially large volumes of email sent to a single address that could disable or halt the email system server. Additional capacity can be purchased by modifying your subscription level.
It is the end-user’s responsibility to keep his/her password confidential, and to change the password on a regular basis. Email Address Checker is not responsible for any data losses or security issues due to stolen passwords. Email Address Checker strongly recommends that you choose strong passwords that contain numbers and symbols in order to prevent unauthorized users from guessing commonly-used choices (i.e. “12345”, “password”, etc.). Email Address Checker support does not have access to view existing passwords. The Email Address Checker dashboard allows you to change your password at any time.
Lost passwords can be retrieved by email by clicking the “Send me my password” link on the login screen.
