Then every few months in order to keep the resulting data up to date we send a verification email to all the addresses in our database and we simply delete out the addresses that bounce and amend records accordingly. In addition many of our lists include CASS (USA lists) or PAF (UK lists) verified postal addresses.

That is why those types of lists are so inaccurate and out of date! After all, when was the last time you updated your business details in such publications? On the other hand, anyone who is seriously in businesses keeps contact information on their website up to date.


So there can be little doubt that the web is going to provide the most accurate and up to the minute business data. That is why all our directories and lists have been painstakingly researched and verified via web research methods. However, the email addresses listed are not transactional nor so called opt in – please see our Terms page for details of our email delivery guarantee.
