The TRUSTe certification makes it easy for IT buyers at businesses and schools to quickly assess an app’s data collection practices, improving and simplifying the app evaluation and purchase process. With TRUSTed Apps certification, organizations can be confident that GroupCamp Project meets TRUSTe’s privacy program standards – an important consideration when purchasing a Marketplace app.

GroupCamp brings strong integration with Google Apps by allowing project users to use Gmail contextual gadgets and link their projects to Google Docs. By adding GroupCamp Project to their Google Apps domain, business users can transform the body or subject of an email into a task in their online project without leaving their in-browser interface. This brings enhanced productivity by allowing project users to process all the emails of their inbox and assign tasks in the relevant task lists without leaving their Gmail interface in their browser. In their online projects members can also link to existing Google Docs by browsing all accessible files in their domain. Users can then add and assign tasks by attaching links to the Google Docs files.

“Having GroupCamp Project TRUSTed Apps certified for Google Apps Marketplace gives buyers more confidence to download our app, resulting in a higher number of installations,” said Dickel SOORIAH from GroupCamp’s co-founder. “The TRUSTe seal enhances our credibility by immediately showing that we clearly communicate our data handling and privacy practices that are in alignment with recognized national and international privacy policy standards and frameworks.”

“TRUSTe’s customized certification program for Google Apps Marketplace makes privacy policies for web-based apps more transparent so that organizations can better determine whether an app is appropriate for their particular usage or not,” said Chris Babel, CEO, TRUSTe. “Becoming certified allows GroupCamp to differentiate its apps from others increasing the number of downloads from the Google Apps Marketplace.”
