1.- Description of the service.

SiteValidator.com is a web application that lets you submit several URLs for validation on the W3C Validator, collects the errors and warnings returned by this external validator, and shows reports based on this.

SiteValidator.com acts as an intermediary between You and the W3C Validator, so when you submit a URL to SiteValidator.com, this initial URL will be scraped in search for links, most of which will then be submitted to the W3C Validator.

The SiteValidator.com spider will visit the initial URL provided by You, and it will also follow any internal link found on this visit, and may do this recursively on the links found on the linked URLs.

The SiteValidator.com spider will request this information making GET requests, passing along any parameters it might find on the scraped links. It will not take into consideration the robots.txt exclusions, and will follow any public link found on the site. You're responsible for any side effects this may trigger on the scraped website, and should protect these actions appropiately.

The submitted URLs, and all URLs found from it on the spidering process, as well as the generated report with their errors and warnings, are considered public data and so can be publicly reproduced on The Website.


2.- Not associated with the W3C.
