About Confianza Online
Confianza is an association created in 2003 by Autocontrol and Adigital with the aim of increasing internet user trust when both browsing and purchasing.
Their main tool is the Trust Mark. Businesses who have the Trust Mark have been assessed by them, on the basis of a thorough analysis covering over 30 objectives, and use it on their website to show their ethical commitment to good internet and e-commerce practices.
Equally, websites with the Trust Mark are subject to the Confianza claims system, which allows for mediation and arbitration between consumers and businesses with no costs for the former and no waste of resources.
The Ethical Code was presented to the public in November of 2002 and went into effect in January of 2003. It was later modified in 2005, 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015, keeping it up to standards. More than 10 associations, representing the areas of new digital media, e-commerce and advertising in Spain, participated in its initial drafting, making it the most significant in the sector. The Code is formed of an ensemble of regulations divided into 4 larger areas:
- Protection of Personal Data
- E-commerce with Consumers
- Digital Advertising
- Protection of Minors and Adolescents
These regulations are intended to serve as a guide for any entity that provides its services or offers its products via the internet and digital media.
