Trust Badges

Good Internet security practice involves businesses ensuring that the customers really are who they say they are when they are using credit or debit cards to effect a sale. Trust seals are given to companies that enlist in programs that are made to check the security and legitimacy of user's information. The trust badge is used to make potential users feel safe to use the website and is especially important for e-commerce websites. Trust badges can be active or passive and are usually valid for a set amount of time.
