The data lifecycle at Alice Biometrics
How does your personal data travel when you sign up for a service that uses Alice Biometrics’ technology?
Let’s say, for example, that you are going to sign up for a digital bank, using your cell phone. This data journey begins with the use of the camera, scanning your ID card and your face. A fast, convenient and secure process.
Who handles your data and what do they use it for?
At Alice Biometrics we capture your ID card and your face and perform data verification on our servers to validate that your ID card is authentic and that the person who has taken the selfie is the same as the one on the card.
Once this is done, we return this information to the digital bank, which will be responsible for safekeeping it. And it will only be able to use this information to validate your identity, which is what you have given your consent for. The regulation makes it clear that you are not allowed to use this information for any other purpose.
Is there any risk in using the face?
No. Alice’s biometric technology converts your face into an undecipherable and irreversible mathematical vector. Once generated, it is not possible to return to the original image, as it is a non-interoperable numerical representation. That is, only the system that created it can read and understand it.
Where is all this information processed?
Alice Biometrics has its services hosted in world-class public cloud data centers, complying with the most demanding security standards and certifications in the industry.
