The TRUSTe Privacy Seal is a consumer branded symbol that signifies a Web site has posted a privacy statement and, moreover, that its Web site information gathering and dissemination practices address the elements of notice, choice, access, security and redress outlined in the Federal Trade CommissionÂs Fair Information Practices. Specifically, TRUSTeÂs members agree to:
Â Disclose their information gathering and dissemination practices;
Â Give consumers choice to limit any secondary uses of their personal information through opt-in or opt-out;
Â Provide consumers with access to their personal information to correct any inaccuracies; and
Â Ensure that reasonable security mechanisms are being used to protect the data that is collected.
ÂWe are pleased to join TRUSTe in fostering fair information practices online,Â said Kevin C. Heath, CEO of More4kids Inc. ÂTRUSTe certification serves as a benchmark in our ongoing commitment to safeguard consumer privacy and security.Â
A cornerstone of the TRUSTe Privacy Seal and Certification Program is the ongoing monitoring and Watchdog Consumer Dispute Resolution mechanism. Through automated Watchfire monitoring, TRUSTe regularly monitors its seal program participants to ensure the integrity of the privacy statement. In addition, TRUSTe provides consumers and organizations an effective method to build trust through the Watchdog Dispute Resolution mechanism, an easy-to-use service for consumers to resolve their privacy disputes.
