Emerging technologies and evolving data privacy practices create challenges in managing a global privacy program across the enterprise. Companies marketing to EU consumers must adhere to amendments to the 2009 E-Privacy Directive (EU Cookie Directive), and 8 out of 10 UK Internet consumers expect companies to comply.

The EU Cookie Directive allows for the legitimate collection and storage of data on a consumer’s computer or other device only when informed consent is obtained. Some countries in the Americas, Asia, and other regions have similar data privacy legislation in place. With these increasing complexities, non-compliant companies are exposed to negative media and brand risks. TRUSTe helps companies stay ahead and protect the trustworthiness of their brands worldwide.
