We hope the following statement of our Privacy Protection Policy will help you understand how ShopperAgeCheck (referred to in this statement as “we”, “our”, “us” or “ShopperAgeCheck”) collects, uses and safeguards the information you provide to us in using our age verification service.
Our age verification service is not directed or available to persons under 18. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 18. If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has submitted Information in violation of our policies and has provided us with information without their consent, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we become aware that a child under 18 has provided us with Information, we will take steps to delete that Information from our records, subject to any retention reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse or enforce the Agreement.
The information collected through our age verification service is used to verify your identity and age, to communicate with you, and to customize your experience. We may retain all information collected in order to facilitate future verifications, with the exception of the photo of your government-issued identification, which is deleted as soon as your identity and age have been verified by age verification service. If you do not wish us to retain your personally identifiable information, you can send an e-mail to email@example.com to request that we delete that information from our records. We may, however, retain your information even if you instruct us to delete it, if retention is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse or enforce the Agreement. Information stored in routine backups may also be retained for the period those backups are retained in the ordinary course of business.
We may share your information if you direct us to do so, with your consent.
If you provide a photo of your government-issued ID to age verification service, it will be deleted as soon as the age and identify verification process is complete. It will not be shared with any person except for our authorized employees or contractors.
We may share the results of age verification service’s verification, as well as some or all of your information with the Merchant as part of the verification process.
Your Information may be disclosed to our employees, vendors, contractors, consultants and other service providers who need access to such information to carry out work on our behalf, at our direction and subject to the terms of this policy, including a third-party identity verification provider.
Automatically collected non-personally identifiable information may be aggregated and disclosed without restriction. We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine the Light” law, permits our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from us a list of what personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year and the names and addresses of those third parties. Requests may be made only once a year and are free of charge. Under Section 1798.83, we currently do not share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
