Crawler, LLC, provider of free Crawler™ software, announces that Crawler Toolbar 5.0 was given Trusted Download whitelist certification by TRUSTe. Crawler Toolbar 5.0 is one of only 13 programs selected for the industry standard certification since the inauguration of the program.
“We are very pleased with receiving our second Trusted Download whitelist certification for Crawler Toolbar,” stated Robert Oesterlund, CEO of Crawler, LLC. “This demonstrates our commitment to continually produce and deliver safe products for our users and partners.”
Trusted Download is a whitelist of software that is safe for consumers and spyware-free. Businesses may use the whitelist to direct distribution opportunities and, where applicable, advertising dollars towards downloadable software that demonstrates informed consumer choice, doesn't exhibit surreptitious activities and gives control back to users.
The Trusted Download Program certifies that a software application provides users clear and conspicuous notice about advertising, tracking behavior, data collection and other software behaviors. Certified applications also must obtain informed consent prior to download, provide an easy-to-use uninstall and control over software operations.
