What Personal Information is Processed and Stored?

Svipe ID allows you to scan a Passport or a National ID card using NFC.

To verify the validity of the chip and the document, the application on the phone will temporarily have access to all of the information in the chip. After validated locally on the phone, this information is sent to the Svipe backend where it is validated again and proofs of correctness are created and stored in our backend. These proofs do not contain the information, neither in clear nor encrypted form, so after verification we do not have access to the information. The following information is processed:

  • Full Name
  • Nationality
  • Gender
  • Date of Birth
  • Portrait Image
  • Personal Number (if available in the document)
  • Document number
  • Document Type
  • Date of Expiry
What Non-Personal Information is Collected and Why?

For the continuous improvement of the app and the service, we need to collect the usage information. This usage information does not contain personal information. Moreover, Svipe cannot directly or indirectly relate the usage information to a specific person. Usage information will only be used for improving the quality of the app and not for other purposes. Svipe will only retain the information for as long as is necessary to fulfill the specified purpose.

Svipe collects the following usage information:
  • Phone details, including phone type, iOS version, and memory size. We do not collect information that is unique for a certain phone.

  • What type of identity document was scanned and read: was the scan successful, was the chip read successfully, what country issued the identity document, the document signing certificate as stored on the chip, and the date of expiry.
