Digital Badge Installation Guide

Contents

Introduction

LEAP has partnered with Yoshki Ltd to develop a secure digital badge using the Yoshki Digital Smart Logo service.

The LEAP digital badge will allow members of the public to easily identify that a website they are visiting belongs to a genuine LEAP regulated firm. It will also provide visitors with easy access to information on the protections the firms’ regulated status provides to them.

Thanks to the software through which the badge is provided, only LEAP regulated firms can use the digital badge.

By using the digital badge, LEAP can help the public make more informed choices and protect the online identity of firms.

Website Verification

Yoshki’s website validation technology is a simple but important feature for the LEAP Digital badge.

It ensures that the badge will only display on websites which are registered as belonging to approved members.

Adding the LEAP Digital badge to your website

Adding the LEAP Digital badge to your website is a simple and quick process.

Q – How are you tracking usage and what data are you recording?

Yoshki uses Google Analytics to power their reporting functionality.

Through this reporting functionality, Yoshki and LEAP have access to the following data:

  • which websites have implemented LEAP Digital Badge code. This is to help prevent inappropriate use of the LEAP Digital Badge and to see which websites have adopted the service
  • how many times the LEAP Digital Badge has been clicked – this is to help manage system performance and to gain insight into usage.

Yoshki does not access, record or store any additional data such as IP addresses, page navigation behaviour, etc.

Of the information we do access – set out above –  it is only ever shared between LEAP and Yoshki, to facilitate the Digital Badge service.
