Ipsidy is committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of its customers and the users of its products and services. At the core of Ipsidy’s mission is our goal of providing secure biometric and multi-factor identity management solutions, to combat identity theft and fraud in a wide variety of electronic transactions. This statement of our Privacy Policy (“Privacy Notice”) is intended to give you an understanding of how Ipsidy protects the privacy of your personal information and about our Mobile Applications, Ipsidy Applications, our Services and our website (each as defined below). These Mobile Applications and Services are made available to people using our customers’ services and they and our Services will also be subject to your agreement with the third party from which you are receiving another service which uses Ipsidy Services (“Third-Party”).Those Third-Parties will have their own privacy policies, for which Ipsidy is not responsible and you should review those policies as well, in order to gain a fuller understanding of how your personal information is collected, used and disclosed.

In this Privacy Notice “Ipsidy” and “we” refers to Ipsidy Inc. and its subsidiary companies who provide or assist in the provision of our mobile applications, including the Ipsidy Application, Ipsidy Mobile Wallet, Ipsidy MPOS Application ( collectively “Mobile Applications”) as well as each application, system, or database which is provided by Ipsidy and which is accessible by other means such as an Internet browser, or desktop application (collectively with the Mobile Applications referred to as the “Ipsidy Applications”) and our services including Access, Transact and Verify by Ipsidy and Cardlok (“Services”) and operate our websites including www.ipsidy.com (the "Site").

The following statements inform you of Ipsidy’s policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information (as defined below) Ipsidy receives from or relating to users of the Ipsidy Applications, Services and the Site.

While using the Site, or applying to use our Services, Ipsidy may ask you to provide it with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally, identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name, e-mail address, telephone number and postal address. When registering with us to use a Mobile Application you will be asked to provide a telephone number and a photograph (if you are using a facial recognition feature of the Ipsidy Application). In certain cases, we may also receive from the Third-Party which is providing Third-Party services to you, your photograph and other personal information which you have provided to such Third-Party, for Ipsidy to provide the Services. (Collectively all of such personally identifiable information, other personal information and biometric information is referred to as "Personal Information").

Ipsidy uses your Personal Information for providing you with information about Ipsidy, its products and services and for providing, maintaining and improving the Site, the Ipsidy Applications and the Services. Ipsidy may use your Personal Information to contact you with marketing or promotional materials.

Mobile Applications

Ipsidy also uses your Personal Information to operate the Mobile Applications and to provide you with the Services. To provide you with the Services we may receive and transmit certain Personal Information to the Third Parties with whom you have authorized us to work, when registering for any Service and using any Mobile Application. When you use Mobile Applications, your phone number, your photograph (if you are using a facial recognition feature of the Ipsidy Application) and certain unique identifiers for your device are sent to Ipsidy to allow Ipsidy and others to provide Services. When you approve (or decline) a transaction, which is presented to you by the Mobile Applications, you are consenting to sending to Ipsidy biometric and other information for such purpose (depending on your Mobile Application account set-up) and consenting to Ipsidy sending a message to the Third-Party that is providing the relevant services, which will include information about you, which is necessary to authenticate your choice.
