Data Subject                The legal or natural person to whom the Personal Data refers and to whom the identity document under consideration relates;

 3.         What Data is Collected in Connection with the Application

(a)        Personal Data about the User (“User Personal Data”)

(b)        Personal Data about the Data Subject (“Data Subject Personal Data”)

 (a)        Personal Data about the User (“User Personal Data”)

The Application is delivered through the Store.  Thus, user Personal Data is collected by either the Store as appropriate.  However, IDscan does not receive, process or in any way have control over the User Personal Data collected by the Store. Thus, privacy in the User Personal Data collected by either of the Store is governed by the Store Policy, rather than this privacy policy.


(b)        Personal Data about the Data Subject (“Data Subject Personal Data”)

The Application collects and processes Personal Data about the Data Subject (including without limitation name, date of birth, address [if available]) from the identity document under consideration.


4.         What we do with the data we gather

(a)        Personal Data about the User (“User Personal Data”)

User Personal Data collected by the Store is used to support registration with the respective websites.

(b)        Personal Data about the Data Subject (“Data Subject Personal Data”)

The collected Personal Data is used to establish an electronic record about the Data Subject.  The electronic record is expressed as a structured digital form.  The collected Personal Data is processed to populate appropriate fields in the digital form.  Each populated digital form and the Personal Data contained therein is stored on the User’s mobile computing device only.  More specifically, the Personal Data contained in a populated digital form will not leave the User’s mobile computing device or be shared with other parties without the User’s direct and positive instructions to that effect.

Accordingly, in the absence of the User’s instructions to the contrary, IDscan will not receive or collect the Data Subject Personal Data.  Similarly, IDscan does not possess or maintain a centralized repository of the populated digital forms.

Once generated by the Application, the User assumes responsibility for the Data Subject Personal Data contained in the populated digital form, thereby relieving IDscan Biometrics Ltd of any and all subsequent responsibility therefor.


5.         Corrections to Personal Data

Once populated by the Application, the digital forms are not in the possession or control of IDscan.  Accordingly, IDscan is not a Data Controller for the populated digital forms, as it has no means of amending, correcting, supplementing or deleting a populated digital form or the content thereof.  ID Holders who desire any such alterations to populated digital forms pertaining thereto or the contents of any such populated digital forms should contact the owners of the mobile devices on which the populated digital forms are stored.


6.         Changes to this Privacy Policy
