How Do I Know If A Website Is Trustworthy?
Look for a privacy “seal of approval,” such as TRUSTe on the first page of the website. TRUSTe participants agree to post their privacy policies and submit to audits of their privacy practices in order to display the logo. (Following a November 2014 settlement with the Federal Trade Commission, Truste is expected to beef up its verification practices.) Other seals of approval are offered by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and VeriSign.
