Usercentrics and Trusted Shops launch technology partnership
Munich, April 23, 2020
Munich, April 22, 2020 – Usercentrics, the German market leader in the field of Consent Management Platforms (CMPs), and Trusted Shops, the leading trust mark for secure online shopping in Europe, are joining forces in a technology partnership which focuses on integrating the Usercentrics CMP into the services of the online shops of Trusted Shops – for full legal compliance.
Dr. Carsten Föhlisch, owner of the law firm Föhlisch Rechtsanwälte as well as authorised officer and legal advisor of Trusted Shops GmbH, comments on the partnership with Usercentrics: “Trust and consumer protection in E-Commerce as well as the implementation of legally compliant online shops are our top priority. Legal regulations make the use of a CMP absolutely essential. We are glad to have won a reliable partner which enables us to meet our customers’ demand for a legally compliant Consent Management Tool”.
Mischa Rürup, founder and CEO of Usercentrics, hopes this partnership will be the beginning of a new era in e-commerce: “Customer trust is the new currency in e-commerce, which can be derived, for example, from the KPI of the opt-in rate for data usage. If website operators want to maintain the trust of their users in the long term, transparent consent management is the key. With services like insurances on product purchases, Trusted Shops enhance their users’ trust like no other company in the E-Commerce industry. We are happy to have found a partner that shares this philosophy with us.”
