TrustedForm is a tool marketers, sellers, and lead buyers use to document consent and comply with regulations such as TCPA, CASL, and others. For publishers (i.e. lead seller), TrustedForm documents consumers interactions with your web forms, mobile apps, and Facebook lead ads making your leads instantly more valuable. For lead buyers, buying leads that are backed by TrustedForm will give you confidence, knowing that as such, you have documented consent when you reach out to consumers.
When a consumer fills out a form, whether on the web, a mobile app, or even Facebook, TrustedForm captures that interaction, typically known as a Certificate or "Cert". At the beginning of the interaction our system creates a unique identifier, called a Cert ID, identifying that interaction. We use that Cert ID to associate everything meaningful about the interation together, and it's also what lead buyers will use to "claim" interactions.
At any point during a consumer's interaction or after, a lead buyer can "claim" the Cert. They can do so in one of two ways:
Once a lead is claimed, everything that's needed to document a consumer's consent is bundled up and stored for a minimum of five years.
When you view a claimed Cert, you can expect to see something like this:
You can clearly see the Cert's metadata on the Certificate tab. Here you have access to information about the consumer's device, time of visit, what page they saw, and how long they spent on it.
The Screen Capture tab is a sort of replay of the consumer's visit, while the Event Log captures the specific interactions in a log-style format.
All of this information is part of the TrustedForm consent documentation process.
