GlobalNPN: About Security and Charity

Hello NPN’ers,

A couple quick updates for you..

Firstly, this is more of an ‘FYI’, I just wanted to make you aware of the fact that GlobalNPN ( is 100% PCI (payment card industry) compliant. What this certification means is that GlobalNPN (including all the online servers and services we own) meets “compliance standards to protect personal information and ensure security when transactions are processed using a payment card.”

To make the long story short, your information is safe and secure with us. We’ve been compliant for quite some time so I thought I’d just let you know to maybe put your mind at ease when dealing with credit card transactions etc. Plus, being PCI compliant kinda lets the world know that we’re serious about being a long term business and that we’re not here to make a quick buck and disappear. There’s a lot of time (and money) involved in getting this certificate as well, there’s a lot of hoops you have to jump through, but it’s important.

Quick question: Do you ever check for PCI compliance before entering your credit card information into a form…?? Didn’t think so, perhaps you should. There’s a lot more involved than just having that ‘padlock’ in the bottom corner of your browser window.

Second item of note..

Some of you might remember an update I sent out a while ago with regards to contributions that I make to an organization called “”.

Here’s a section of that update:

“…It’s an excellent organization that I’ve been personally involved with over the last few years. The way they help people is amazing, check it out.. My plan is to match the monthly bonus payments that YOU earn, and donate that amount to Again this is more of an FYI… none of this will come out of your commissions (don’t panic), I’m doing this out of my own pocket, because I think it matters….”

Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that a portion of the “Bonus Promotion” money that is generated each month will go to on behalf of the company. Again, don’t worry, I’m not taking the money from YOUR bonus money, I’m basically matching a percentage of it and paying it out of my own pocket, because I know it’s a good cause.

I kind of have an issue with people that make a lot of money, but don’t do any good with it. The fact is, our industry (online marketing) sees millions and millions of dollars going through it every month, yet I NEVER see online companies (like NPN), or individuals doing anything with that money to help people that really need it – at least not publicly.

Maybe this will encourage you to promote NPN more, maybe not. Maybe it will encourage more people to join NPN at the upgraded levels (since that’s where the bonus money comes from).. and maybe not. Doesn’t make a difference to me. But I know it can make a difference to others.

This month your efforts bought a Flock of Ducks, a Flock of Chicks, and an Earth Basket at

Hopefully we can all do more next month!

Have a great day.
