Collection, Disclosure, and Use of Biometric Data
We collect Biometric Data from you to detect liveness, verify your uniqueness, and for other similar purposes when you complete Civic’s Uniqueness Verification steps. These identifiers may include facial recognition data, as well as mathematical or topographical representations of your biometric identifier.
To use the Services, you will need to submit a recording of your face (“3D FaceScan”). The 3D FaceScan will be analyzed by Artificial Intelligence technology to distinguish live humans from attempted spoofs. A topology of your face (“FaceMap”) will then be produced and compared against all previously enrolled FaceMaps to detect duplicate enrollments. If no duplicates are found, you will be considered “Unique” and issued a Civic Pass. If a duplicate record is found, you will be able to revoke previous verifications and request a new Civic Pass. Note that the FaceMap is not an image of your face and cannot be used without Civic-controlled tools. An image of your face cannot be regenerated from a FaceMap. Once the FaceMap is generated, Civic deletes your 3D FaceScan.
When we collect Biometric Data, we endeavor to provide a specific notice and consent request at the time of that collection. Each user of our Services is required to expressly consent to our collection of such user’s Biometric Data when they engage with our Services. If a user chooses not to consent to our collection of such user’s Biometric Data, then the user should not use the service. We reserve the right to request a new consent if any of the terms contained in this Biometric Privacy Notice undergo a material change.
Retention of Biometric Data
Unless required by law to maintain any specific Biometric Data for longer than our retention schedule, Civic will securely delete Biometric Data according to this schedule rendering it no longer available for inspection or access. Civic will securely delete Biometric Data upon request.
Security of Biometric Data
Civic implements industry-leading encryption and other data security technology designed to ensure that your Biometric Data is processed, stored, transmitted, and protected in a secure fashion.
Third-Party Service Providers
Civic uses tools provided by FaceTec, a third-party service provider, to capture and process your Biometric Data. Your biometric data is not accessible to or shared with FaceTec or it’s subcontractors. Civic will not provide FaceTec with any personally identifiable data and FaceTec will not collect nor solicit any personally identifiable data from Civic.
