Where does the KVS tool get its data and is KVS authorized to provide this data in the manner it is presented?

The tool is known to access a variety of web sites, many in a manner that is not authorized. Please see the next section of this Wiki for a list of sites believed to be accessed and their data access policies (where known).

Additionally, under some conditions the tool appears to access sites via a KVS-operated back end. This means that the tool is not just a 'web browser' that runs via a user's machine. No detailed public information is available about how this works or whether any of this back-end access is authorized.

If you're waiting to search for *A awards and can't wait just use awardnexus, same ANA data for free and you don't have to wait for any reg codes.

The tool must be damn good, because at the moment, I feel like I will not even try to use it anymore.
Please check your e-mail Inbox.

And many thanks to ckpeter & lallyr for already addressing these 2 points:

1st: Why did you accept it in the first place when it comes to pay?
2nd: @will-hier-weg.de is not a disposable e-mail address. It it provided by gmx and is a fully-functional mail address.

I can not check, how good kvs is, because, from the decision, to use your tool, until now, I lost my free weekend day.
Consider following:
^ Try to gather less data of your customer. All you really need is money.
^ Shorten the time between first hit of your homepage and use of kvs to the absolute minimum. Why should it need your manual interaction.

This should be the next features, because functionality is one thing. But usability finally sells as well.

BTW, yes, I got my access, 15 hours it took.
Okay, I gave the other address, and the credit card seems to be refused.

The registration page clearly states that
The use of free e-mail accounts (e.g. Hotmail/GMail/Yahoo/AOL)
is not recommended. GMX falls into that category, don't you think?

Do you really expect Kevin to list every single freemail provider on the planet?

What data are you referring to? Your postal adress? That data is needed to bill your credit card. How many online purchases did you do in the last 15 years which did not ask for that data?
Blame Visa, Mastercard and the other credit card companies for that.

Originally Posted by chumbawumba View Post

Again, what address are you talking about? Your email address or your postal address?
If the latter does not match the data your credit card company has, it is totally your fault that things went wrong.

As some others have posted: I am using the KVS tool for quite some time, had a couple of renewals, a ton of new machine keyes (due to loads of VMs) and never experienced anything like you did.

@will-hier-weg.de is a part of the GMX "FunDomains" set, which
<<are best suited for "disposable addresses", for example to participate in sweepstakes, entries in guest books, discussion forums and other "hunting grounds" of address-collectors and spammers.>>

GMX is not recommended, but it would have been accepted.
The OP actually used a disposable-type e-mail address, as described above.

The OP had originally entered a wrong credit card billing address.

Nevertheless, he was provided a temporary registration code as courtesy, while we were waiting for him to respond with the correct address.

Question Definition needed

Hi all,

Lost newbie here. I have been checking around the forum for this without Under the SNT: Awards/StarAlliance method for the tool, I see an Air China flight listed as "YS\". I understand that the "\" = "cabin not applicable" but what exactly does that mean?

Thanks.

Would it be possible to reformat TVN fare rules (as far as I understand it is the problem of html to text conversion, but the source provides genuine GDS formatting similar to DotRes)? That would make reading easier and faster.

Any chance to add information from Expedia fare rules - I am particularly interested in having fare creation system date.

This is a limitation of the TVN engine itself, so the text cannot be further "reformatted" within the KVS Tool. Please use the DotRes Method for the best-formatted Fare Rules.
