"Strong privacy practices are at the core of all of comScore's operations, and
we routinely engage with the broader privacy and legal communities to discuss
and implement new best practices," stated Chris Lin, Chief Privacy Officer at
comScore. "We are pleased to be named to this year's OTA Honor Roll, and look
forward to continuing conversations with OTA and other leading organizations
about data privacy and consumer protection."

OTA's 2014 Online Trust Honor Roll evaluated leading websites' adoption of
security controls and privacy practices, including those advocated by the
Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the National Telecommunication Information
Administration (NTIA) and OTA Mobile Privacy & Security Best Practices. To
stay current with the ever-changing data security and privacy standards, new
criteria were added to this year's audit methodology including updated
requirements surrounding SSL server configuration and cryptographic protocols,
and increased weighting on phishing and fraudulent email protection at the
top-level domain.

"In an online world that is continuously changing, organizations that have
demonstrated a pattern of leadership and stewardship of their online
properties should be recognized for their commitment to their customers,
employees and stockholders," said Craig Spiezle, president and executive
director of the Online Trust Alliance."comScore's leadership has been a
driving factor in the support of these best practices."

Started in 2005 as an effort to drive adoption of best practices, the
objectives of the Honor Roll are to 1) recognize leadership and commitment to
bestpractices which aid in the protection of online trust and confidence in
online services, 2) Enable businesses to enhance their security, data
protection and privacy practices, 3) Move from compliance to stewardship,
demonstrating support of meaningful self-regulation, and 4) Promote security &
privacy as part of a company's brand promise and value proposition.

Being named to the 2014 Honor Roll is a significant achievement considering
the large number of companies that received failing marks for inadequate
domain and brand protection, insufficient privacy practices and site security.
