To support delivery of our certain services purchased by the Customer, Veriff OU (or one of its affiliates) (collectively used here as "Veriff"), may engage and use external data sources, such as data registries, either directly or through a third party service provider. In the event the Customer purchases a service that relies upon such a source, then the Customer authorises and instructs Veriff to transfer the Customer Data to the data source country, data provider and acknowledges and agrees that Veriff may use the registry data for any of the following purposes:

  • Offer a standalone service to verify end-users data against the source

  • Offer identity verification based on the data

  • Offer identity verification assisted by the data

  • Other use-cases as described under Veriff’s agreement with the Customer

All external data sources rely upon third party, e.g. government or proprietary, data sources and resources for which uptime and availability may not correspond to uptime and availability offered by Veriff.

The use of external data sources is offered using different data providers, as listed below, who can also act as our sub-processors. For more information concerning our sub-processors click here.
