Any information contained in a Trust Award Whitelist is designed to communicate the compliance with the applicable program requirements of a Trust Award Program by a particular company or software application. The intent of each Trust Award Whitelist is solely to communicate that the company or software application listed therein has been found to be in compliance, or good standing, with the program requirements of the applicable Trust Award Program; however, it may be that the company or software application listed therein has violated the program requirements of the applicable Trust Award Program and such violation has not yet been detected or reported, and in the event that it is determined that there has been a violation of the applicable program requirements, that company’s or software application’s status on the Whitelist would be under review. Listing of any company or software application on the Whitelist does not mean anything more than the foregoing and you may not infer anything further about the company, products or services of the company, or the software application from such listing on the Whitelist. Use of the information on any of Trust Award's Whitelists is for verification and research purposes only. Obtaining information from a Trust Award Whitelist by automated means, such as "screen scraping", for purposes of commercial automated verification or research is prohibited.
