1. Collection, Processing, and Use of Personal Data
Blockchain Propulsion AG (“BPRO”) offers services in the area of Digital Assets, which often includes verifying official identification documents, in particular passports, identity cards, and driving licences (“Identification Documents” of “ID”) and matches these with the respective person (“End-User”). BPRO offers this service to customers around the world - e.g. financial institutions, fund managers, insurance companies, technology firms, government institutions, maritime companies, real estate developers, online platforms, and various other organisations (“Partners”) in order to comply with legal and regulatory requirements (e.g. Money Laundering Act) and/or to increase the security in relation to the identity of End-Users. As such, BPRO acts according to the client instructions and the applicable regulatory and legal requirements.
a) Verification Process
The End-User of our verification service use a technical device (e.g. PC, Smartphone, etc.) to record the ID document via video chat or photo using the integrated camera. In the following, the verification process is explained with the corresponding steps and associated data processing. The End-User is made aware of the identification service through BPRO’s Partner. BPRO generally requires the following data of the End-User to perform the identification service: first and last name, address, date of birth, place of birth, mobile number, e-mail address. This data is either collected by the Partner or entered by the End-User on the BPRO website or app. During the identification process, photographs and/or video recordings of the identification document are taken in order to match the previously obtained End-User data with the data on the identification document. The data collected by BPRO varies depending on the identification document and the customer's application.
For passports and identity cards, the data collected includes first and last name, place and date of birth. For identification under the Money Laundering Act, the issuing authority, ID number, nationality, and the address of the End-User are also collected. In the case of driving licences, first name and surname, date of issue, category of driving licence, and date of birth are collected in particular. BPRO also stores the photos and the video recordings of the ID documents in addition to the End-User data. In a second step, depending on the partner configuration, photo or video recordings of the End-User’s face are taken using software licensed to BPRO. The photos are either taken by the End-User or by a BPRO employee. If customer identification is required under the Anti-Money Laundering Act, the data is collected through a video call. The conversation between the End-User and BPRO employees is recorded acoustically.
