Specifically, TRUSTe seal holders agree to:
- Disclose their information gathering and dissemination practices;
- Give consumers choice to limit any secondary uses of their personal information through opt-in or opt-out;
- Provide users with access to their personal information to correct any inaccuracies; and
- Ensure that reasonable security mechanisms are being used to protect the data that is collected.
Ongoing monitoring and the Watchdog Consumer Dispute Resolution mechanism are cornerstones of the TRUSTe Privacy Seal and Certification Program.
