Have you ever thought to yourself:
“So, just WHAT ARE all those mysterious icons at the bottom of each Archival Methods website page???”
To understand the value of today’s need for quality assurance and consumer protection, one can look back to an earlier time. Remember back in the day when different products would tout the fact that they had earned “The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.” (Careful, you’re dating yourself here, even though it’s still a “thing.”) For those who don’t know, Good Housekeeping was / is a magazine that would grant its “seal of approval” (a “symbol of quality assurance and consumer protection,” as described on the Good Housekeeping website) only to those products that met its high standards for endorsement.
Don’t Get Scammed / Ripped Off / Phished / Hacked / Cyber-Ransomed / Deleted
(or respond to those “please help me get $5 million dollars out of the country” e-mails)
Today, in the Digital Age—or should we call it the Digital Jungle—there are any number of ways to get scammed / ripped off / phished / hacked / cyber-ransomed / deleted / and otherwise assaulted by identity theft and promises of millions from some “government official” in some foreign country who promises you a cut of some mystery bank account. To combat this, there are certain web-based firms that will certify online retail companies as being completely legit, secure, and safe to deal with. This is becoming ever more important in an era of both expanding e-commerce and expanding opportunities to be hacked or ripped off.
Which brings us back to the mystery icons featured at the bottom of each Archival Methods web page, all of which we are proud to be associated with and be recognized by. They are, from left to right (see fuller descriptions, below):
