This statement refers to how we safeguard the privacy of the users of our age checking services.
AgeChecked Ltd and blubolt Ltd (“us”, “we”, or “our”) provide a service (the “Service”) to organisations (“Website Operators”, “you” or “your”) to check on the suitability of their customers (“customers”) to access age-restricted products or services.
We take your customers’ privacy extremely seriously. This statement informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Identifiable Information (“Customer Information”) when your customers use our Service.
We constantly strive to minimise the requirement for your customers to disclose personal information. It is possible to use our Service without disclosing Customer Information in some instances. However, in order to meet the requirements of regulators, it is sometimes necessary for us to process Customer Information to provide the Service.
We will not use or share Customer Information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Statement. We do not use Customer Information for any other reason other than to provide the Service. We do not retain Personal Identifiable Information, only anonymised data.
Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Statement, terms used in this Privacy Statement have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible on our website https://www.agechecked.com.
INFORMATION COLLECTION USE AND STORAGE
While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with Customer Information in an iframe/web portal that is hosted securely by us. This information can be used to check your customers’ suitability to access age-restricted products or services (“Age Checking”) and send you account information. We do not share Customer Information with third parties for any purpose other than Age Checking. We do not share Customer Information with the organisation that has asked us to provide this Age Checking Service for them (“Website Operator”).
A Website Operator may send us Customer Information and ask us to Age Check you using that information. We may return the results of the Age Check to the Website Operator, but we will not send Customer Information to the Website Operator.
For clarity, a Website Operator will only receive data from us so that they may ascertain your customer’s suitability to access the age-restricted service, and not Customer Information itself.
Information that we may collect on you, and use to ascertain your suitability to access the age-restricted service could be:
- Customer name
- Customer date of birth or age
- Customer telephone number
- Customer address
- Customer email address
- Customer IP address
- Customer payment card information
- Information derived from Government issued documentation
- Politically exposed persons (PEPs), sanctions and exclusions data
Once an age check has taken place any Customer Information that may have been gathered during the age checking process is removed from our system, apart from:
- Customer date of birth or age
- Politically exposed persons (PEPs), sanctions and exclusions data (if applicable).
Thus, the information that remains is anonymised and used to ascertain your suitability to access age-restricted services.
We create data to enable your customers to anonymously verify their age without having to disclose their identity via anonymised accounts. We maintain these accounts for client compliance purposes and other valid purposes.
Anonymised accounts can be deactivated at any time by a user through the user portal.
We may employ the following third-party companies to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analysing how our Service is used:
