How TrustGauge Works
TrustGauge(tm) is offered through
Browser Accelerator, an exceptional freeware toolbar
that provides users with access to detailed information on any
site appearing in a browser window.
TrustGauge.com works in a similar fashion
to that of a credit bureau, whereby we gather information in various forms in order to calculate a particular score. While a low credit score does not mean you never paid your bills or that you were late in paying them, it does mean that certain businesses who may examine your credit worthiness in the future will find you to be too risky to do business with. TrustGauge.com adopts a similar philosophy in that, if you have a low Trust Score™ it may be the result of you not having enough data submitted to us, and not the result of you being a lawless or fraudulent web site.
In the case of TrustGauge.com, the consumers will be the ultimate decision makers on whether or not your Trust Score™ is sufficient enough for them to feel comfortable in doing business with your web site. Please note that nothing stated within the TrustGauge.com web site or any of TrustGauge.com's related services is to be construed as a statement of fact. TrustGauge.com, through its Trust Score™ and related services, calculates a web site's Trust Score™ based on criteria that is subjectively determined by TrustGauge.com. There are not set standards for measuring or determining a web site's trustworthiness in the same manner that a credit bureau calculates a consumers creditworthiness. However, TrustGauge.com through its related services, hopes to become the standard by which all other web sites will be judged for trustworthiness.
