ACEPI, DECO and DNS.PT joined up in an unprecedented initiative to create the Confio seal.
To foster good e-commerce and Internet-use practices, this innovation ensures the credibility of online stores and the safety of online shopping consumers.
The Confio seal therefore replaces the ACEPI online trust seal - the Trust ECommerce Europe seal - which will disappear in September 2017.
This initiative also involved the creation of an e-commerce code of conduct, which is considered one of the most advanced in the world, and requires signatory and accredited parties to join an online dispute resolution center.
A website's seal will thus appear prominently on the corresponding homepage with a link to the accreditation page.
