Building Advertising Trust Builds Business

COPPA compliance: backed by strict requirements, the TRUSTe Children's Seal certifies your business' compliance with the COPPA rule.

How can TRUSTe's Children's Privacy Seal help you ensure child safety and privacy while accelerating your growth?

If your website or app is fully or partially targeted towards children under the age of 13, or your website or app knowingly collects personal information from children under the age of 13, you need to comply with the Federal Trade Commission enforced Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Since its approval as a COPPA Safe Harbor in 2001, TRUSTe has become the largest FTC-approved certification provider to date.

The TRUSTe Children’s Privacy Certification program allows businesses to easily demonstrate the child-friendly nature of their website or app while ensuring compliance with the COPPA Rule and alleviating parental concerns over the safety of their children’s information.

More than 25 million consumers click on these seals annually to confirm TRUSTe membership.

Monitoring and Scanning Ensures Compliance

TRUSTe uses a combination of tools including scanning technology and personal attention to monitor licensed sites for potential changes to their privacy practices. TRUSTe checks for items such as encryption measures on sensitive pages, undisclosed "cookies", or single-pixel tracking devices. Oftentimes, violations are unintentionally introduced when organizations update their pages, undergo changes in ownership, or launch new initiatives such as contests or newsletters.
