To ensure people use real email addresses for registration, the system sends a so-called activation email. Since only the owner of this email address has access to the corresponding mailbox, only this person can open the activation email and use the links therein to activate his/her profile. Until the profile is activated or approved in this manner the person cannot log in to the system (see also: How do I log in?) and use the services offered by International-Dating-Portal. Profiles created for registration but not activated within 10 days will be deleted by our administrators after 10 days.
