Thawte Partners with UK's SafeBuy - But Is Anyone in the U.S. Listening?
Companies Share Common View with UK Govt.

Thawte, Inc., a South African company that refers to itself s "one of the most established Certification Authorities worldwide," has announced a partnership with SafeBuy, "the leading assurance scheme for web-based retailers in the UK," the two companies have announced.

SafeBuy is said to have set the highest standards in the industry for web retailers with a Code of Practice covering all relevant UK and EU law, including the Distance Selling Regulations, the Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications and the Data Protection Act 1998. It also vets security for the processing of credit card transactions.

Beyond the law, UK retailers are required to include physical location and contact details for themselves on their website, display the total price consumers must pay for goods including delivery costs and provide a clear explanation of the delivery procedures. Subscribing members must also advise the consumer if "cookies" are required for the processing of data, not use "spam" for marketing purposes and avoid exploitation of children.

Hello, is anyone in the U.S. listening?

Ilse Baxter, Director of Business Development at Thawte, Inc., confirms “SafeBuy has partnered with Thawte through our Referral Program, t-refer, as a Premium Partner and we will be working closely with them to develop other opportunities in the future. Thawte has always had a holistic view on Internet protection and the SafeBuy partnership endorses Thawte’s commitment to Web security and the importance of trusted, independent third parties endorsing the Thawte brand and our products.”
