Confirmation by WebTrust marksSM/TM for the highest level of certification services provided means that:

  • PCC CERTUM issues qualified and non-qualified certificates (non-qualified including SSL certificates and infrastructures) worldwide recognized as Trusted,
  • PCC CERTUM is authorized to verify internet trustworthiness according with certain criteria, eg. by veryfying whether a certain website holds a confidentiality certificate (it is a published statement on how personal information is being used) and whether the User is able to decide upon the way using this information published on the website. Websites certified by an organization that veryfies internet trustworthiness ( eg. by PCC CERTUM) are entitled to display our SSL Confidentiality Certificate mark on their main page or order forms (np. „Verified by CERTUM” lub „Secured by CERTUM”). 

It occures that some dishonest websites illegally display a logo of thrustworthiness, so it is very significant to check whether a certain website uses the SSL Certificate issued by trusted body and in case of further doubts it is recommended to contact any organization which verifies trustworthiness  (so with PCC CERTUM) in order to check whether this particular website is registered with such organization.
