The WR Content Portal provides authorized users with secure access to public and subscriber-only content.  In most cases, WR's content is licensed on an organization-wide basis, and the WR Content Portal identifies organization members based on their email addresses.  For example, validated Content Portal users with an email address are considered to be a part of Wainhouse Research.  When a person leaves a company, he is no longer authorized to view WR content as a part of his prior company's license. 

How Do I Verify My Email Address?

Clicking on the URL in the validation email confirms that you still have access to your email account and therefore are still covered by your organization's content access license.  The entire process takes less than 10 seconds to complete.

What Happens if I Don't Verify My Email Address?

The WR Content Portal will send three emails requesting that you validate your email address.  If you do not validate your email address after the third request, your account will be temporarily suspended.  In order to reactivate your account, visit the WR Content Portal and the site will ask that you validate your email address.
