To provide our Services, we need to collect certain information about our clients' users including personal data and, particularly, biometric information. “Biometric information” means any information, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored, or shared, based on an individual’s biometric identifier used to identify an individual.
The exact information needed depends on the check that’s being carried out on behalf of our client.
In some cases, we may check whether we have previously verified a user on behalf of a specific client by comparing the picture of their face to the pictures previously provided by that client. This helps our client not only verify identity but further protects them and their users by helping them understand when a user may be generating multiple identities.
To do all of this, we closely examine the information contained in the images, including the machine readable data and the image metadata (such as the name of the camera model used to take the image).
Under no circumstances do we transfer your email address to any other company, nor do we collect any personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs.
Users are individuals whose identities we verify or otherwise check on behalf of our clients. We collect users’ information from clients or directly from the users themselves. This information might include an image of the User, photos or a video of the User, and the biometric facial identifiers in those images. In some circumstances, we may also collect device identifiers and IP addresses to help us understand whether a device has previously been used in relation to suspected fraudulent activity and whether O.Vision is permitted to provide Services in the country in which the user is located. To further com-bat fraud, we also collect identity information that has been leaked or otherwise made available on the internet.

We also keep logs of how our clients, users, and data providers interact with our Services. This might include timestamps of when the information was submitted to O.Vision, and information about the device used to submit that information.
Sometimes, we receive information we don’t need to provide our Services. For example, instead of a picture of their face, a user might upload a completely unrelated image. When this happens, we seek to delete this data.
