Information Collected

Verif-y stores User’s employment, education, licenses and other data (“Personal Information”). From time to time, we may request additional data as needed if Users order our Services, request information, participate in a survey or contest via our Platform.

In addition, as part of the standard operation of the Platform, Verif-y may automatically collect, store and analyze data from your computer or mobile device. Verif-y reserves the right to match your IP address (or any other data) with other data about you in any way permitted by applicable law.

What you can do to help keep your information secure

Always create a password that’s easy for you to remember but difficult for someone else to figure out.
