In addition to violations, we also count up the number of times an agent has reported an error on their own listing. When an agent self reports, we update the listing without issuing any penalties or fines.
You’ll notice that some of these violations incur a penalty, and some don’t. The Online Rules Course breaks down the difference between penalty vs. non penalty violations and how you can avoid both. Also, don’t be afraid to tell on yourself! By reporting your own violations to the Data Integrity department, you can save yourself a violation and/or penalty.
