Actually it is showing a Cloudflare certificate for me.
I don't trust Shopify either, due to failures in the enforcement of their TOS.

As for Cloudflare, RIAA has raised alarms about them due to the large number of pirated music websites they knowingly protect, so they aren't at all ideal for your intellectual property.

It appears you just used a template for your privacy policy, but did not edit it for your site.

By the way, what were you expecting for a "Child Safety" rating? Your content is explicit according to Google Play; what kind of explicit content are we looking at?

Thanks for your response.

Sorry for the mistake with the privacy policy, it has now been updated to reflect only information relevant to our website.

Please note that Shopify now automatically implements Cloudflare for all websites that use its service (hxxps://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/203464660-Using-Cloudflare-with-Shopify). There are many well-rated sites on WOT that use Shopify, and we hope we can still receive a favorable rating. All of the music we sell and promote is from one artist who controls all the rights to his music.

We are not expecting a Child Safety rating, just a Trustworthiness rating. We are having issues running Facebook ads directing traffic to the website, and are hoping that a WOT trustworthiness rating will help fix the problem. Your Old Droog is a hip-hip artist, and his music contains some curse words. That's why you will see if marked as explicit on streaming services. This should have no impact on the trustworthiness of the site.

Unfortunately there is a bug where I cannot post a Trustworthiness rating without a Child Safety rating.

RIAA (not sure if you publish through a member label) considers Cloudflare an enemy, as mentioned at

Code: Select all
