Online Trust and Internet Safety Are Our Promise To You!

 

 

On Cyber Monday, you should know online trust and Internet safety are a high priority for Publishers Clearing House!

 

Hi folks, it’s me again, wishing you a Happy Cyber Monday! Just wanted to check in and see if you’ve all been doing your part to stay cyber-smart. Remember your easy internet safety steps: STOP, THINK and CONNECT!

I also wanted to update you on what Publishers Clearing House has been doing to stay cyber-safe and cyber-smart. As you know, PCH is committed, 365 days a year, to making sure your information is safe and secure. We follow all cyber security rules and regulations so that you can trust interacting with us. In fact, we’re so committed to online trust that we’re a member of the Online Trust Alliance (OTA)!

The OTA’s goal is to “increase consumer protection, transparency and control of their data, online activities and transactions, thereby enhancing online trust and confidence and the long-term vitality and innovation of internet based services.” Basically, the OTA wants to make sure the internet is as safe and secure as possible for you, so that you can feel safe and secure when using it!

 

And Publishers Clearing House wants to make sure of that too! In fact, our company demonstrated our commitment to internet safety and cyber security by participating in the OTA’s Online Trust Forum last month. This annual conference brings companies from all around the country together to share, learn and collaborate on important internet safety best practices, training and public policy. We get to educate other businesses on what we’ve learned about internet safety, while learning tips from them, too!

 

Publishers Clearing House’s involvement with the OTA and participation in the Online Trust Forum is just one example of our commitment to preserving and continually improving online trust. We understand that securing the internet is our shared responsibility and are doing everything we can to make it a safe place for you, your family, your community and your country.  So, when you send in an online entry in the PCH Sweepstakes, or when you shop online at pch.com, whether it’s Cyber Monday or any other day, you can rest assured that online trust and internet safety are our promise to you!

 

Until next time, stay cyber-safe and cyber-smart!

If I won $5,000.00 A week for life,I will buy a brand new computer with a high speed internet. The computer I using right now is a gift from my sister but it’s not new one,it is used. When I spend too long is getting slow and slow I have eliminated some of games that I can not handle with.
Last year my computer broke,I went to library and asked for used it, they allowed people to spend only one hour it wasn’t enough for me.
I hope my computer keep working good so I can continue to enter PCH Sweepstakes until I win!
I always have fun and trust with your company and also I thankful to PCHer families for giving me the opportunity to enter into all this contest.

Wish the government was smart. My personal info was stolen when my medical records were being transported from one place to another by I guess a company the government contracted to do the work. There were lots of people’s personal info stolen that way.
I think there should have been a person with the records the whole way, so that would mean more than one person in the vehicle transporting them. That way if one needed to get out and get dinner or use a restroom, than another would still be inside the vehicle with the data. That data should have been treated as if it were money in an Amored Vehicle. Ahh, well, thankfully we have Life Lock and then I’m going to talk to some people on base on other security measures we can take because this happened. I’ll take the letter I received from the company that messed up with me. Life can be frustrating sometimes. You buy a wallet to protect your information in your purse. You can be really careful and then something like this happens.

Thanks PCH.com for securing the website as much as possible… Although, I am not an online shopper…(directly) I do use it to search and find good deals… I do buy from the online but, I have a better way without entering my information directly online… and, it has been working for me and my family it is the most secure way… and the results have been very successful. I can’t shop this year… for the holidays… I’ve been out of work for over 1-1/2 and still trying to find work… I just know there is a miracle out there for me! Keeping my hope and prayers alive! I just LOVE My PCH.com… Be bless!

    Hi Tala,

    The Prize Patrol has surprised a winner in Hawaii. In fact, Dave Sayer said that Hawaii was his favorite place to go on Prize Patrol. PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!
