Fraud prevention, authentication and transaction verification provider ValidSoft’s VALid-4F product has earned a European Privacy Seal from EuroPriSe, an independent certification consortium.
Aimed for government use, VALid-4F is a self-certification product that enables individuals to certify themselves and their location via a mobile phone.
EuroPriSe rated several of its features as “excellent,” including:
- purpose specification and limitation
- strong legal assurances that the data subject has given full consent for use
- data avoidance, minimization and proportionality
- product documentation
- compliance of mobile phone look-ups with European data protection law.
This is ValidSoft’s second EuroPriSe seal. It received its first in March 2010 for VAL-id-POS, a security product used to protect against card transaction fraud.
