TRUSTmonitor Certification
All TRUSTmonitor certified clients undergo business verification whereby we are provided information from our clients to validate the business legal name and establish their ability to conduct legitimate business with their customers. We also use a proprietary method to verify address (via US mail), phone, fax, and email to ensure customers can contact them if necessary. In any event, TRUSTmonitor is not responsible for the kind of business conducted by our clients. All clients are responsible for the validity of their business information and for doing their own business including dealing with their merchant accounts, PCI security, your credit card number, etc.

All TRUSTmonitor Security Verified clients, in addition to the above validation, undergo a daily security scan of their entire website that checks for, but is not limited to, certain known and published web vulnerabilities, SQL injection, cross-site scripting, open port detection, and many other known web application threats used by hackers. While this, or any other, vulnerability testing cannot and does not guarantee security, it does show that Security Verified clients have taken reasonable time and effort to help protect your information from hackers. TRUSTmonitor makes reasonable effort to provide a fully functioning service, but by using this information you agree that TRUSTmonitor, and its affiliates, shall be held harmless in any event.

TRUSTmonitor is the sole judge of if a website is approved or rejected.

If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, TRUSTmonitor shall issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.

Third-Party Links
In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, TRUSTmonitor may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with TRUSTmonitor, TRUSTmonitor has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate privacy and data collection practices, independent of TRUSTmonitor. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk.

You agree that if any term in this agreement is deemed to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable for any reason, all other terms shall remain in force.

Governing Law
These terms are governed by the laws of the State of California and controlling U.S. Federal Law.

Waiver of Rights
You agree that the only way to waive rights under these terms is explicitly and in writing. Any failure to enforce any right under this agreement will not waive that right.
