The TRUSTe Privacy Policy ensures that the customer data collected by a small business is protected, and allows for compliance with regulatory requirements which impact their online business in the same way they impact larger corporations.

“When it comes to trust, size doesn’t matter,” said Chris Babel, CEO of TRUSTe. “It is just as important for small businesses to communicate respect for their customers’ privacy and adhere to credible online privacy practices as it is for large enterprises. TRUSTe is excited to partner with eNom – one of the largest registrars in the world – to deliver our online privacy services to this rapidly growing market. TRUSTe’s agreement with eNom reflects our ongoing commitment to developing and providing robust online privacy solutions – for any platform and for any size company.”
