Jostle® Corporation announced today that its Jostle organizational platform has received TRUSTed Apps Data Privacy Certification in the Google Apps Marketplace. TRUSTe certification demonstrates that Jostle follows TRUSTe’s privacy standards for the Marketplace apps in regards to the collection, storing, use and sharing of its users’ data and adheres to standardized best practices described at https://www.truste.com/partner-program/

The TRUSTe certification makes it easy for IT buyers at businesses and schools to quickly assess an app’s data collection practices, improving and simplifying the app evaluation and purchase process. With TRUSTed Apps certification, organizations can be confident that Jostle meets TRUSTe’s privacy program standards – an important consideration when purchasing a Marketplace app.

“Having Jostle TRUSTed Apps certified for Google Apps Marketplace gives buyers more confidence to sign up for our app, resulting in a higher number of users,” said Brad Palmer, Jostle CEO. “The TRUSTe seal enhances our credibility by immediately showing that we clearly communicate our data handling and privacy practices that are in alignment with recognized national and international privacy policy standards and frameworks.”

“TRUSTe’s customized certification program for Google Apps Marketplace makes privacy policies for web-based apps more transparent so that organizations can better determine whether an app is appropriate for their particular usage or not,” said Chris Babel, CEO, TRUSTe. “Becoming certified allows Jostle to differentiate its apps from others increasing the number of subscriptions from the Google Apps Marketplace.”
