TRUSTe Privacy Seal Granted to Net-Temps
North Chelmsford, Mass., October 31, 2000 - Net-Temps today announced that it has joined the TRUSTe privacy seal program. Today's announcement demonstrates that Net-Temps meets TRUSTe's strict requirements in the areas of disclosure, choice, access and security.

Beginning immediately, Net-Temps will prominently display the TRUSTe Privacy Seal, or "trustmark," on its website. The TRUSTe seal offers a direct link to Net-Temps' privacy statement, which provides website visitors with details of the company's privacy and security policies. By displaying the TRUSTe privacy seal, Net-Temps will assure its customers about how the company's website handles personally identifiable information.

Kevin Strange, Net-Temps' Vice President and Chief Technical Officer stated, "We respect the issues of privacy and the concerns people have when providing personal information and its subsequent use over the Internet. By voluntarily joining the TRUSTe privacy program, Net-Temps demonstrates the commitment we have to protecting the information our website users disclose and that they understand exactly how it is used."

The TRUSTe privacy seal is an online branded symbol that signifies that a website has posted a privacy statement and, moreover, that the company's data gathering and dissemination practices address the elements of disclosure, choice, access and security outlined in the Federal Trade Commission's fair information practices. Specifically, TRUSTe's licensees must:

Disclose their information gathering and dissemination practices Give users choice - through opt-in or opt-out - of any secondary uses of their personal information Provide users with access to their personal information to correct any inaccuracies Ensure that reasonable security mechanisms are being used to protect the data that is collected

TRUSTe ensures that its licensees are in compliance with their privacy statement through regular monitoring and the TRUSTe Watchdog, an easy to use alternative dispute resolution mechanism for consumers.

"It has become increasingly clear that the TRUSTe seal has emerged as a symbol that consumers look for when deciding whether to do business with a website," said Bob Lewin, Executive Director and CEO of TRUSTe. "By becoming a TRUSTe licensee, Net-Temps is making it easy for its customers to protect their personal information online."
