GDPR Compliance

Ensure GDPR compliance while verifying European Union customers.

In the European Union (EU), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to protect the personal data of EU citizens by enhancing a number of directives. New rules are necessary to strengthen the privacy and security of data within the EU. The rules are strict and include many provisions that increase the rights of data subjects. In addition, it imposes harsh penalties for violations. GDPR came into effect on May 25th, 2018.

IDMERIT is focusing its GDPR compliance efforts on the implementation of GDPR.

We are aware that significant changes have been made to how businesses can engage with EU people as a result of this legislation. As a result, we are taking all necessary precautions and steps to handle client data from the EU in conformity with GDPR.


The following highlights the major GDPR-related topics of relevance and how IDMERIT is working to abide by the law to the fullest extent possible:

Consent

According to GDPR, processing of personal data can only take place if an individual has given clear consent. Consent must be given in a clear, unambiguous, and informed manner. Once this consent has been given, an individual's personal data can be stored and used for many different purposes, including identity verification. IDEMRIT has been working diligently to renegotiate contracts with its EU data providers as a result of these changes. In addition to the new contracts, we are certain that consent-based and GDPR-compliant personal data being given for our services.

Security

According to the GDPR, it is no longer acceptable to transfer personal data outside of the EU in response to a third country's legal need. The identity verification solution from IDMERIT connects to data sources in many nations via a secure API to verify Person A's identification. In order to prevent cross-border transfers of personal data from EU nations and to ensure that the data is protected, the test result is sent back to the place where the validation request was made.

Legitimate Interest

By validating that personal data has been received with consent and maintaining it in its country of origin, IDMERIT is being proactive in complying with GDPR. Moreover, they guarantee that requests are processed lawfully, such as to preserve KYC and AML compliance.
