United Parcel Service (UPS) has become the first global package delivery organization to join the Center for Safe Internet Pharmacies (CSIP) as a strategic partner and board member. CSIP is a nonprofit organization that was established to educate the public and to take voluntary enforcement action against illegal Internet drug sellers and its board of directors includes executives from American Express, Discover, Visa, MasterCard, eNom, GoDaddy, Google, Microsoft, Neustar, PayPal, Facebook, and Yahoo!
In a press release, CSIP Executive Director Marjorie Clifton said, “The participation of shippers represents an important addition to our membership which currently includes search engine advertisers, social media, registries and registrars, and payment processors. With UPS on board, our members now represent all areas of the online sales and delivery ecosystem. Together we aim to set a global precedent and call on other companies similar to our membership to take action.”
