Consent is key when handling important personally identifiable information.
bronID implements a robust consent protocol into every information transfer.
When performing an identity verification bronID is checking an individual’s personally identifiable information via the Document Verification Service. To do so, bronID requires for expressed and informed consent to be obtained from the end-user to check their personally identifiable information (PII) data.
bronID consent is built into every transferral of data, explicitly outlining the data that will be shared and how it will be used by the recipient. bronID makes consent a standard for information sharing.
Consent means ‘express consent or implied consent’. The four key elements of consent are:
- the individual is adequately informed before giving consent
- the individual gives consent voluntarily
- the consent is current and specific, and
- the individual has the capacity to understand and communicate their consent.
To be able to use the bronID API you will have to request consent from your customers in your data collection forms. As outlined in the bronID API documentation at docs.bronid.com
The consent request should be in the following format:
I confirm that I am authorised to provide the personal details presented and I consent to my information being checked with the document issuer or official record holder via bronID (an Identity Service Provider) and third-party systems for the purpose of confirming my identity. I consent for details and results from this identity verification to be stored for audit and compliance purposes with the Identity Service Provider.
