What is the principle of a disposable email address?
A disposable email address is a redirection towards your actual email address, and it has a limited lifespan. During all the time specified when you created it, emails sent to this address will be forwarded to your actual address.
What's the use of a disposable email address?
A disposable email address can be used for several reasons.
  • You want to use a service on a web site that requires a confirmation through email, and you know that this site will sell your address to third parties; with a disposable email address, you can confirm the link that was sent, yet you won't receive any advertisement that would be sent afterwards.
  • You want to participate in a forum, and receive replies through email, yet you don't want your email address to be gathered by robots. Thus the robots will only get the disposable address, and after a while you won't receive any more ads.
Do you keep logs on this service?
Yes, but for legal reasons only. No email address is going to be sold.
Do you append ads to forwarded emails?
No. Jetable.org is a service provided by the french non-profit association APINC (Association for a Non-Commercial Internet), and the service is totally exempt of ads. This is why there are no banners on our web site either.
