Privacy Policy


Effective Date: January 1, 2024

This online privacy policy applies to the web site and related sub domains, (collectively the, “Web Sites”), and when you use products or services provided by Verifent.

Verifent Web Sites are general audience sites and are not designed or intended to attract children younger than 13 years old. We do not collect personal information from any person we actually know is younger than 13 years old.



We collect personal and non-personal information on our web site to customize the content you see, fulfill your requests for information, deliver our products and services, improve our products and services, and contact you. There are aspects of our site that can be enjoyed as a visitor, but you need to register in order to take advantage of some functionality on the site, such as receiving e-mail alerts or to access products and services provided through our sites.


Information We Collect From You

Registration: We receive information from you when you register in order to receive alerts, news feeds, or product information or if you register to receive a product or service that we deliver through our Web Sites. We also receive information from you when you register in order to participate in online events like webcasts or to receive special offers.

Purchasing a Product or Using a Web-based Service We Provide: We collect information about you when you use any Web-based service offered through our Web site. This information may include your name, address, email address, phone number, and information about your company. We may collect personally identifiable information in order to ensure that you establish a unique account with us, to help safeguard access to your unique account, and to allow you to securely reset your password when necessary.

Log information: When you visit our Web Sites, our servers automatically logs certain information. This information may include the Web page from which you came to our site, your Web page request, Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request, your registration data, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser. When you purchase a product or use a Web-based service on our Web sites, we may also log the specific path, actions, and navigation choices you make.

Contacting Verifent: We receive information from you online when you send us e-mail, or complete applications or other document forms.

Cookies: We use session cookies on the pages that may contain information about you and your activity on our Web Sites. These cookies are deleted when you close your browser.


Information We Collect From Others

We may also collect information about you from third parties that operate portions of our Web Sites on our behalf, from your employer, or from those who use our verification and other services. When we associate information that we obtain from third parties with personal information that we have collected under this policy, we will treat the acquired information like the information that we collected ourselves. We will not share information we obtain from third parties in personally identifiable form except as necessary to deliver our products and services. For example, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to a verifier as part of our verification service.


How We Use the Information We Collect

We use the information we collect about you to administer our Web Sites, to improve the user experience on our Web Sites, and to offer products or services that might be of interest to you. For example, session cookies are used in order to gather aggregated statistical data about the use of our Web Sites and to help us improve navigation of our Web Sites. We link IP addresses to personally identifiable information in order to ensure the security of our service for all users. In these cases, the IP address and personally identifiable information become part of an audit trail that we may use to identify the source of a specific transaction.



We take reasonable precautions to be sure that nonaffiliated third parties and affiliates, to whom we disclose your personally identifiable information are aware of our privacy policy and will treat the information in a similarly responsible manner.

We will not disclose your personal identifiable information to third parties, except to (a) provide you with the information or services you request, (b) deliver our products or services that include your personal information, or (c) under certain circumstances as described in this policy.

Disclosure for legal reasons: We may release personal information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (2) in special cases, such as a physical threat to you or others, a threat to homeland security, a threat to our system or network, or cases in which we believe it is reasonably necessary to investigate or prevent harm, fraud, abuse, or illegal conduct.

Service providers: Our affiliates, service providers and contractors sometimes have access to your personal information in the course of assisting in operating our business and providing products or services to you. These service providers and contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, or content for the operation and maintenance of our site. Access to your personal information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the contractor to perform its limited function. Contractors have an obligation under their contracts with us to keep your information confidential and to comply with our privacy and security policies. Some of these relationships may be with companies that co-brand portions of their site and services, or that provide services to you on our behalf. Co-branded sites may have their own privacy policies posted on their sites. If you visit a co-branded site, please read the privacy policy that is posted on that site.

This information may be combined with information from other participating services in order to improve the security of our online environment.

Links to other sites: We may provide links to other sites that might be of interest to you. When you click on one of those links, we will not provide any personal information about you, but will let the site know that you came from Verifent. We do not control the privacy practices and policies of other sites. Please read their privacy policies in order to understand what information they collect about you and how they use it.


Changes in our corporate structure: If all or part of our company is sold, merged or otherwise transferred to another entity, the personal information you have provided to us may be transferred as part of that transaction. We will take steps to ensure that, without your consent, any personal information that is transferred will not be used or shared in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Policy under which it was collected.



In some cases, you may decline to provide personal information to us or refuse cookies in your browser, although some features or services may not be available to you or may not function properly as a result.

Disabling Cookies: Your browser software can be set to reject all cookies or to accept cookies only from our site. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject cookies in the "Help" section of the toolbar. You will need to manage your cookie settings for each device and browser that you use. If you reject our cookies, you may not be able to log in or use certain functions and conveniences of our site.


Opting out of promotional or marketing offers from Verifent: If you do not wish to receive promotional or marketing offers by email, you may opt out of receiving further promotional offers and emails by clicking on the "unsubscribe" button in the email.

Do Not Track signal: Some web browsers may transmit "do not track" signals to the websites and other online services with which a user communicates. There is no industry standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We currently do not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard is established and accepted, we may revisit our policy on responding to these signals.

California Privacy Rights: California Civil Code Section 1798.83 entitles California customers to request information concerning whether a business has disclosed Personal Information to any third parties for the third parties' direct marketing purposes. California customers who wish to request further information about our compliance with this law or have questions or concerns about our privacy practices and policies may contact us as specified in the "Contact Us" page.



We are committed to protecting the security of your information through procedures and technology designed for this purpose by taking these steps:


We limit access to your personal information to employees having a reasonable business need to access this information to provide products and services to you and to our customers. Employees who misuse information are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.  We have reasonable technical and procedural safeguards to help protect your personal information.

For all Verifent website areas, we use Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption to help protect this information while it is in transit between our servers and your computer.

You also have a role in protecting the security of information about you.

Choose your passwords carefully. 


Always create a password that's easy for you to remember but difficult for someone else to figure out, such as implementing complexity, including the use of upper and lowercase, numbers, and symbols.


Log out and close your browser: When you finish your online session, close your browser to erase any information it may have temporarily stored on your computer.

Install antivirus software and spyware protection: Viruses are extremely dangerous. They can slip into your system without your knowledge. Some viruses such as Trojan Horses can capture the contents of your system, including your passwords. Installing up-to-date antivirus software and running it will help thwart these and other unwanted programs.



This Privacy Policy will be reviewed annually or when there are significant changes to the services we provide.  During this review, Verifent reserves the right to make updates or changes as deemed necessary.  If we make changes to this online privacy policy, we will post the revised privacy policy and its effective date on this Website.  Your use of our Web Sites is your agreement to comply with this Privacy Policy.
