2.0 The Services
2.1 The Site offers you two main services:
(a) The Site acts as an intermediary between You (the End-User) and a third party who has requested that you provide them with certain information including personal details and documentation (the “Requester”). The Site allows you to capture and make copies of your personal details and documentation, which may include proof of address, personal references and forms of identification (the “Documentation”). The Site allows you to share this Documentation using your device and transmit securely the Documentation to the Requester;
(b) Upon request, the Requester can also use the PlanetVerify platform to request that the authenticity of the Documentation provided be verified. This verification can be carried out by the Requester themselves or by a third party on behalf of the Requester using the Documentation which you have provided to the Requester (a “Verification” or to “Verify”)
together the “Services”.
2.2 We act as an intermediary between you (the End User) and the Requester. Where you upload or otherwise capture the Documentation on the Site in response to the Requester, it is stored on our secure cloud and the Requester is given access and full control of that Documentation according to their needs and their agreement with you.
2.3 PlanetVerify provides the Requestor a secure storage option for your personal data including the option of 2 Factor Authentication (2FA) which requires not only a secure password but also the Requestor’s device. We strongly recommend that Requestor switches on the PlanetVerify 2FA but it is the Requestor’s decision in the end to do so and is determined by the Requestor’s policy or their prior agreement with you.
2.4 PlanetVerify also provides Requestor a convenient “One-Click” method for deleting all the personal data they hold about you on the PlanetVerify cloud if they require or if you should request them to do so.
2.5 We are not responsible for nor will we bear any liability for:
(a) the type of Documentation which You submit to a Requester;
(b) your decision to submit Documentation to a Requester;
(c) any decisions which are made by a Requester which follow your decision to submit Documentation to them (including where they request a Verification);
(d) a Requester purporting to be someone they are not (noting that we endeavour to verify the identity of signed-up Requesters); or
(e) accidental deletion of your data for any reason.
2.6 Once you use the Site to submit Documentation to the Requester, the Requester has the ability to download and retain the Documentation permanently (subject at all times to any obligations which they might have under data protection law or other applicable laws and anything to the contrary that you may have agreed with them in writing). You should not transmit Documentation to the Requester unless you trust that party and are confident that they are who they are purporting to be. While we make reasonable efforts to verify the identity of Requesters, we take no responsibility for and exclude all liability in respect of transmissions by you of Documentation to Requesters.
2.7 Requester’s have the option of asking us to Verify the Documentation which you have submitted. In order to do this, we may contact third parties for assistance.
2.8 Where we are requested to Verify a credit card, we will do so by placing a small charge(s) on the card. We will contact you to obtain your specific consent to do this beforehand.
2.9 The decision to Verify your Documentation is taken by the Requester and we (or a third party appointed by us), carries out this Verification at their request. By using the Site and submitting your Documentation to a Requester, you agree that your Documentation may be subject to Verification at the request of the Requester. We have no obligation or liability towards you in respect of the Verification process or the results of same.
2.10 Any Verification (whether provided by a Requester or by some third party on behalf of a requester) may be withdrawn, retracted or removed at any time.
