If you’ve been to the bottom of any of our webpages, you may have noticed that we feature several trust seals from established businesses. These trust seals show that we’ve passed some of their security standards.
Earning a trust seal for your business can be the difference between a client’s trust and skepticism. Whenever a visitor to your site sees that your brand’s security has been verified by a trusted name like PayPal, they have that much more reason to pay for your services or do business with you.
Different Types of Seals
Of course, before rushing off to snag a seal for your website, why not read up on what your options are?
- Privacy Seals – Privacy seals outfit companies with privacy statements suited to their business practices. They also help companies identify potential privacy threats that would otherwise go unnoticed.
- Business Identity Seals – Business identity seals verify the legal, physical, and actual existence of businesses by verifying multiple parameters such as contact details and management details. They represent due diligence certificate for businesses.
- Security Seals – These are the most popular types of trust seal verification. Security Trust Seals can perform daily scans for your server, and ensure that customers are protected under normal circumstances by testing for common security vulnerabilities.
Keep in mind that most trust seals have an expiration date, and need to be re-validated at specific dates once they expire. Check for details on the trust seal website of your choice.
