TRUSTe earlier this month launched the TRUSTe App aiming to give consumers control over the ads they want to see. The launch follows months of field testing in which 0 out of 10 consumers chose not to opt out of targeted ads and instead to share their interests directly with advertisers in exchange for more relevant ads. The app is an extension to the company’s privacy-compliance solution TRUSTed Ads and allows consumers to choose to update their advertising privacy preferences directly from an ad via the AdChoices icon or download the TRUSTe App to manage and update their preferences and share their ad interests in one place.

Site Sentinel


Site Sentinel is a website data-flow auditing system that enables publishers, developers, and auditors to ensure the data security and privacy of web applications and their users.  The system remotely scans targeted websites and identifies data-handling issues that typically occur in the user’s browser, but are caused by the structure of the web content.  These weaknesses stem from excessive links to third-party objects, inappropriate use of cookies, exposure of form data, and integration with social media and other services via external JavaScript.  Site Sentinel runs as a network appliance with a web-based interface and produces a wide spectrum of reports, including graphical risk scorecards for quickly identifying problem areas and low-level technical reports for resolving issues found.  The system is intended to assist organizations with disparate web assets in complying with internal policy, government legislation, and industry standards.  The product is developed by Ehrlich, Wesen, and Dauer, a Pittsburgh-based software developer specializing in privacy and data security on the web.
