since yola doesnt allow bad websites that steal information or contain viruses or bad things you should allow us to get one free. you can check our websites and if we pass, we get the Yola TRUSTe seal of approval the test could be repeated annually.

Hi Alex,

TRUSTe offers users an actual privacy policy for their business which includes the TRUSTe seal. Every website owner that takes information from its visitors needs a privacy policy to ensure his visitors he will not misuse that information. Through the form widget any Yola user can request information from people visiting their site, including Name, e-mail, etc from their visitors.

The TRUSTe Privacy policy lets the website visitors know that their information will not be misused or shared with third parties. TRUSTe enforces the policy by allowing users to complain about breaches.

Please check http://www.truste.com/ for more info. (Their regular pricing is much higher than what they charge Yola users: http://www.truste.com/privacy_seals_a.... For an example of a company using the TRUSTe privacy policy check out http://www.apple.com/privacy/.
