TrustLogo and Site Seal FAQ

What is TrustLogo®?

TrustLogo is a way to provide trust and confidence to your website visitors. The TrustLogo graphic not only provides a visual confidence boost in your legitimacy, but employs unique technology to allow website visitors to quickly validate your right to display a TrustLogo and to easily view your credentials, as verified by a trusted third party. By simply pointing their cursor at your TrustLogo, a real-time request for validation of your identity is made to the IDAuthority®. Your credentials are returned in a dynamically generated 'certificate' providing peace of mind to your website visitors. Further credentials are made available should they be required by the visitor - thereby ensuring your customers have all the critical details at hand to do business with you
