5 The bronID Services

 

The bronID Services are a secure identification product to help You verify Your identity with participating Organisations that You deal with. You can currently use the bronID Services by using the App, which requires You to register a Digital Identity Profile so that You can use the bronID Services to verify Your identity again to other participating Organisations or for other transactions in the future.

To use the bronID Services, You may be required to have eligible ID Documents verifying Your identity. When You provide information about eligible ID Documents to us via the bronID Services, we may use an ID Verifier to check the details against the records held by the issuing authority and confirm whether the details match.

The number and type of ID Documents You need to provide may vary depending on the requirements of the relevant Organisation for the particular purpose requiring verification of Your identity. The bronID Services will prompt You to provide the ID Documents required in each case.

You must follow the instructions and directions given by us, including those provided via the email, SMS and the App, in order to use the bronID Service. Your use of the bronID Services will be limited and/or restricted if You do not comply with such instructions.

 

6 Creating a bronID digital identity Digital Identity Profile

 

By using the bronID app, You acknowledge, accept and consent to the creation of a digital identity for You.  Your digital identity will be connected to a blockchain address or addresses, a string that serves as an "identifier."  Because bronID is an identity platform on the blockchain,  the digital identities can be linked to a blockchain as transactions.  As a user of bronID, You acknowledge that because transactions on a blockchain are immutable, the record of Your bronID on-chain transactions are also immutable and cannot be deleted from a blockchain. 

To create Your Digital Identity Profile You must:

a. register a Digital Identity Profile in order to use the App. The first time You do this, You will be guided through the process to register a Digital Identity Profile for Your use of the bronID Service.

b. Each Digital Identity Profile is unique to an individual and can be used with the bronID Services to verify the identity of one individual only. For Your own security, it is recommended that You should not allow any other person to access a Digital Identity Profile that You have registered.

c. The App or your personal cloud (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive or one set up by us) will store some data on Your Device to secure Your Digital Identity Profile, and this may be backed up by the operating system on Your Device. It may be possible to restore Your Digital Identity Profile to a Device using the backup of the App's data or the data stored in your personal cloud, subject to technical limitations, and we cannot guarantee that recovery will be successful in any given case.

d. Your Digital Identity Profile may not be recoverable, for example, if Your Device becomes lost or damaged and the data from the App was not backed up, or cannot be successfully restored, or if You do not enter the correct PIN. If Your Digital Identity Profile cannot be recovered for any reason, You will need to create a new Digital Identity Profile and follow the steps to verify Your identity again.

e. You will be given the option to capture a photo within the App to be associated with Your Profile (Profile Image). We will only use Your Profile Image in accordance with these Terms and will not disclose it to third parties without Your consent. In order for us to be able to use the Profile Image:
