Confirm Your Email Address

If you just registered

You should receive an email when you register with the subject Welcome to BamSEC - Please confirm your email. Click the Confirm email » link and you're all set.

Corporate Plans

If you are on a corporate plan, your email address is pre-verified. No verification step is required unless you change the email address that is used for your Email Alerts.

  1. (Optional) Update your address to where you would like to receive the alerts. Save.
  2. Click the Resend confirmation email link.

  4. You are all set!

Can't find the email?

Missing Alerts

If you think you should have received some alerts but did not, there could be a few possible reasons:

  • Your email address is not verified. Check if you are seeing the Resend confirmation email message on your Email Alerts Settings page.
  • The filing category or transcript was not enabled in your Email Alerts customization. Check your Email Alerts Settings page to see what you have enabled/disabled.
  • You added the company to your Watched List list after the filing or transcript was added. We only send alerts for new filings or transcripts that are added after you Watch the company.

None of the above apply? We will certainly investigate. Please send us a note.
