Identity Verification is becoming more common across popular online platforms, and we realize you might have some questions. Veriff accurately and quickly verifies the identities of people across video gaming, financial services, crypto, social media, and more — without compromising the safety of user data. The internet can be a safer place without sacrificing your privacy.
At Veriff we work directly with the business that is verifying its users by sharing end-user’s personal data with our client that is enabling identity verification. Additionally, we share end-user data with our thoroughly vetted sub-processors. These help us with data storage so your data stays safe and out of the hands of fraudsters we are in the business of catching.
Veriff has set policies about how long we hold onto end-user data so that we aren’t holding onto your information indefinitely. As a standard, personal data which is processed on behalf of our clients is stored for no longer than 3 years.
At Veriff end-user data is encrypted both while it’s being transferred from platform to platform, and while it’s not being processed post-verification in order to provide the highest protection possible. You can read more about our security commitments on our Security and Compliance page.
Veriff is constantly acquiring and updating its compliance certifications. These certifications confirm that Veriff’s systems are designed to keep your data safe. We know this is of the utmost importance in a time where data leaks and breaches are becoming more common and have life-altering consequences. You can read more about our security commitments on our Security and Compliance page.
Please note that when we provide our services to the business enabling your identity verification, we are generally acting on behalf of the business as their authorized data processor. For detailed information about how your data is being collected and processed, please see the business’ privacy documentation.
Veriff’s IDV system uses a hybrid approach, meaning that our system is highly automated but we use expert verification specialists as well as our AI to ensure only real users are getting approved. Sometimes your session needs to be sent to our specialists and it takes a bit longer. Hold tight, we’ll get you verified soon!
