Our prime focus is laced to the belief that we value our customers and the information that is provided by them. We do our best to keep that information safe and intact in our secure database to ensure a sense of safety to our customers that their personal information will not be shared to advertisers, spammers or any other third parties.
In course of your interaction with our Services, we may collect some general information as described below:
The Service enables you and other individuals who install the Veris User App or other variants of the Veris Enterprise App that we may make available to (“Users”, ”You”) to aggregate your professional and social credentials at a single location, use the “Site” to create a “Veris Network”, send badges for such Veris Network (“Veris Badges”) to members of your professional and social organizations (“Organizations”), to allow other Users within a shared Veris Network to confirm your credentials for the same by using the Veris User App, including by scanning the QR code associated with your User account or by inputting into the Veris User App the characters of the “Veris Code” associated with your User account, to use the “Veris Keys” feature to gain secure, physical or logical access to locations or items associated with a Veris Badge, such as computer workstations and websites or servers, to discover other Users in your Veris Network when such Users are in your contact directory (“Contact Discovery”) and to allow such other Users to use the Contact Discovery feature to discover you. In order to facilitate these processes, the Service may collect your personally identifiable information in various ways:
As a User, if you choose to create a new Veris Network using the Site, you will be the administrator for such Veris Network (“Administrator”). If you choose to establish a new Veris Network as an Administrator or if you are invited via email by an Administrator to join a new Veris Network, the Veris Account Information that we will collect may include, without limitation:
If you are Administrator of a Veris Network, you may integrate the Veris Badges for such Veris Network with an existing Third Party Site account, thereby enabling you and other Users in your Veris Network to log into such Third Party Site using Veris Badge. As an Administrator, if you choose to integrate your Veris Network with a Third Party Site, you may be asked to provide certain personal information, including your name, the specific URL associated with your Organization’s Third Party Site account, and your username or email address associated with such Third Party Site (collectively hereinafter referred to as “Third Party Site Information”). As an Administrator, if you choose to integrate your Veris Network with a Third Party Site, you may use your Organization’s existing address book, directory or other list of contacts located on such Third Party Site to invite other members of your Organization to join your Veris Network, thereby allowing such other members of your Organization to log into such Third Party Site using applicable Veris Badges. If an Administrator uses a Third Party Site to send you a Veris Badge, thereby inviting you to join a Veris Network, in addition to your Veris Account Information, we may collect your username for such Third Party Site. Your use of Third Party Sites in general and your relationship with such Third Party Sites are subject to such Third Party Sites’ own privacy policies and other terms and policies, which we strongly recommend that you review before you start using the Service or integrate any of your Veris Badges with such Third Party Sites. We do not control and are not responsible for the processing of your information by Third Party Sites.
In addition to the Veris Account Information and Third Party Site Information, we may automatically collect information about you based upon your use of our Service, including your User Data (as defined below), when and where you use the Veris Keys feature, when and where you use the Service to unlock doors or log into your computer, Third Party Site or other system, your requests for customer support, when you use the Service’s Peer Discovery feature, your user feedback and other communications you direct to us, how often you log into the Service and what functions of the Service you frequently use (collectively the “Usage Information”).
We may also collect your login information for the websites or servers of participating Organizations, which we will use to verify your credentials for each applicable Organization. As referenced above, if your Veris Badge is integrated with a Third Party Site, we may also collect your username from such Third Party Site (together with the login information of participating Organizations, collectively referred to as “Login Information”).
When you choose to create or accept a Veris Badge for an Organization, we collect certain information about you (“Credentialing Information”) which will be visible in the Veris User App for other Users affiliated with such Organization to view or in the Veris User App for Veris Mobile Users (as defined below) to view, in each case, as part of the verification process or Contact Discovery feature. Credentialing Information may include, for example, your name, organization, title, photo, email address, and phone number.
In certain cases, you may have the opportunity to verify your identity by using the Veris User App to scan your Aadhar, driver’s license or other government issued form of identification. If you choose to use this identity verification function, we will collect certain of your personal information directly from your Aadhar or other form of identification, such as your first and last name, date of birth, picture and zip code (“License Information”).
We may collect, with your consent, your finger print, voice print or facial profile which are considered biometric data (the “Biometric Information”). This Biometric Information may be used to validate your Credentialing Information when logging into the Service on a new device and to provide Administrators, Veris Mobile Users and other Users with a biometric means of confirming Credentialing Information.
