Driving licenses include first and last name, date of issue, driving license classes and date of birth. If the used document contains more personal information this is stored too. IDnow stores not only the end user data but also the photo and video recordings of the ID documents. In a second step, depending on the partner configuration of the IDnow software, a photo or video recording of the end user’s face is made. The photos are taken either by yourself or by an IDnow employee. For the personal identification according to the Money Laundering Act, the data will be collected as part of a video chat. The conversation between you and IDnow employees also will be recorded (audible and visually) if required by law.
