The HONcode seal
Over the past 12 years, HON has grown immensely and currently, there are more
than 6,500 HONcode certified websites. To maintain the quality standards of
these and the growing list of HONcode websites, HON developed a new dynamic and
active HONcode seal which allows the real-time status change according to the
compliance of a website. This seal shows the last date of reevaluation of the
site and is automatically updated after every re-evaluation or annual audit.
Information collected from this seal is non-personal such as your Internet
Protocol address, browser type, browser language etc which cannot be used to
personally identify you. We do not sell, transmit, share or divulge this
information to any third party and it is safely stored on the HON web servers
used only by the HON collaborators and system manager to improve our services.
