Collection methods:Help on this term

Communication direction of any type should not be taken at face value and should be confirmed. Confirmation may occur by checking with the individual, by challenge, or by calling or sending a message to confirm the information.

Confirmation by use is a higher level of confirmation than verification with the individual. If the individual has verified that the electronic communication address is correct and this address has also been confirmed, then 'Confirmed by use' is the code which should be recorded.
