SiteTruth is based
in Silicon Valley, in California, USA, and applies United States and California
legal standards when evaluating businesses. Many businesses on the
Web operate anonymously, without giving a clear statement of their ownership
or location. Operating an online business anonymously is a criminal offense
in California, and SiteTruth thus treats businesses with anonymous ownership
as not being legitimate.
