For years we've been saying that the privacy of our members and users is important to us, and now, we've actually gone and put our money where our
mouth is, and certified AboveTopSecret.com through TRUSTe
, the largest independent organization certifying the
privacy of users online.
After an extensive six-week audit of our website procedures, our operational strategies, research into any existing complaints, and slight additions
we have been certified as an organization
that protects the privacy of our users on all available levels.
While this doesn't mean any change in our operation or site code (no changes were required after the audit), it does provide our users and members
with an extra assurance that we are proactively aggressive in protecting your privacy while using our websites. Additionally, TRUSTe acts as an
intermediary should any user believe their privacy was at risk, or, that we acted in a manner contrary to our
. Complaints of this nature can now be filed directly with
TRUSTe Complaint Department
and they will investigate submitted concerns.
