Megan on Marketing

Online Marketing is discussed

TRUSTe

TRUSTe is described on their website “As the leading internet privacy services provider, TRUSTe helps thousands of businesses promote online safety and trust, and guides consumers to sites that protect their online privacy”.  They also state that their Privacy Program Requirements are based on the Federal Trade Commission’s Fair Information Principles.  There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Facebook and who has access to user’s personal information.  Apparantly, Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg “has suggested that concerns about online privacy on the social networking site are overblown” according to the Telegraph.  It is interesting that Mark writes off the privacy issues as “overblown” even though the site now sports TRUSTe certification.  If he does not see user’s privacy as an issue, then why would he feel the need to use TRUSTe to review and certify the privacy policy?  Maybe because TRUSTe’s website states that “customer’s who trust you buy more”.
