GroveSite Renews TRUSTe Privacy Seal License

Protection of Client Information an Imperative for Online Collaboration Vendors

PHOENIX, AZ – October 21, 2003 – GroveSite today announced its renewed membership in the TRUSTe Privacy Seal Program, exemplifying its commitment to consumer and client privacy and security. TRUSTe, the leading privacy certification and seal program, awards its privacy seal only to companies that complete the TRUSTe certification process and agree to comply with ongoing TRUSTe oversight and consumer dispute resolution procedures.

"Being certified in the TRUSTe Privacy Program reassures our clients of GroveSite's commitment to respect and protect the privacy of their information. We're an ethical, company. Our clients trust us to keep their personally identifiable information and their site content private and secure," said Thomas I. Selling, President of GroveSite. "We invite our visitors to review our industry-leading privacy policy, posted on www.grovesite.com."

The TRUSTe Privacy Seal is a consumer branded symbol that signifies a website has posted a privacy statement and, moreover, that its website information gathering and dissemination practices address the elements of notice, choice, access, security and redress outlined in the Federal Trade Commission's Fair Information Practices. Specifically, TRUSTe's members 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 consumers with access to their personal information to correct any inaccuracies
  • Ensure that reasonable security mechanisms are being used to protect collected data

A cornerstone of the TRUSTe Privacy Seal and Certification Program is its ongoing monitoring and Watchdog Consumer Dispute Resolution mechanism.
