Shopping-Bargains.com has earned HACKER SAFE certification from ScanAlert, the world’s leading provider of website security services. Understanding the importance of customer trust and safety, Shopping-Bargains.com works with ScanAlert and the Better Business Bureau to ensure that the security and privacy of our shoppers are protected.
Especially during this holiday season when online shopping is so popular, Shopping-Bargains.com felt the need to provide shoppers an extra sense of security by adding “trust badges” to every page of the site. That way, with a single click, “shoppers can read a real-time status report that independently verifies our trust and security claims” says Mike Allen, President of Shopping-Bargains.com, LLC.
To help address concerns about hacker access to confidential data, the “live” HACKER SAFE mark appears only when a web site meets the HACKER SAFE standard. According to ScanAlert, “research indicates sites remotely scanned for known vulnerabilities on a daily basis, such as those earning HACKER SAFE certification, can prevent over 99% of hacker crime.”
Both Shopping-Bargains.com and Shopping-Bargains.co.uk are tested and certified daily to pass the HACKER SAFE Security Scan.
“I am pleased with this additional level of online trust and transparency that we can now demonstrate to all our shoppers,” said Allen. “Not only do these services visually enhance our shoppers’ sense of security through clickable ‘trust badges,’ they also provide independent evidence that we are a safe place to shop.”
Prior to implementing these trust badges and the recent HACKER SAFE certification, Shopping-Bargains.com had always maintained tough security measures. “The difference now is that our security status is visible to everyone since it’s tested everyday and verified independently” Allen said.
When it comes to online shopping, safety is definitely a high priority for Shopping-Bargains.com. That’s why Shopping-Bargains.com has both HACKER SAFE certification from ScanAlert and BBBOnline Reliability Program membership within the Better Business Bureau. This distinction is matched by very few others in the industry. “We are proud to be the only coupon site, to the best of our knowledge, that holds both of these security and privacy distinctions” maintains Allen.
Shopping-Bargains.com will continue to devote extra resources into working with reputable security and trust services like those from ScanAlert and the Better Business Bureau. As Allen concludes, “We strive to continually improve our customer experience and enhance the value we provide those shopping with us.”
