As part of EU government regulation regarding Know-Your-Customer (“KYC”), we are required to validate the identity of all users at signup. That is why we require all users to provide their personal social account information such as their legal first name and last name as well as their date of birth. We also require users to take a selfie photograph with a Government issued identity card that validates their provided names and date of birth. We only use this data for the sole purpose of validating users’ identities and never use them for any other purpose nor share them with any third parties. Once a user passes KYC, the data is stored in an encrypted format that secures it. As always, we require your consent to proceed with KYC.
All Boom user data are stored only in Boom data centres within the European Union and are thus protected by the EU’s strict data protection policies.
