Biometrics and Age Verification
Collection and Storage
This Biometric and Age Verification Collection and Storage Policy (the "Policy") last updated as of the date above relates to your submission of AV Documents to CamSoda (“we," "us," or "our") in connection with your use of the interactive, streaming video and text communication platform available through CamSoda.com (the “Site”). It is important that, prior to submitting any AV Documents to us, you fully review, understand, and agree to this Policy. As used herein "AV Documents" refers to all images you may submit to us either directly or through a third party intended to comply with our age verification requirements.
AV Documents Requirements
Currently we require that anyone who wishes to be eligible to receive digital credits from other users of the Site submit two clear color images. One image must be a clear, legible, color image of your valid, government-issued identification (the “ID Image”). The identification must contain, at a minimum, your date of birth, your legal name, and a recent and recognizable photo of you. Identification not containing this minimal information will be rejected. The second image must be a clear color image of you as you appear at the time you are submitting your image (the “Selfie”). Neither image may be altered, retouched, or otherwise altered or changed. If we, in our sole discretion, believe you may have in anyway altered or changed an image submitted in connection with your AV Documents, including through use of a filter, your submissions will be immediately rejected, and you may be terminated from the Site.
The Selfie will be shown in a secure internal portal, viewable to content review and age verification team members, for ongoing age verification and content review to confirm compliance with the Site’s Terms & Conditions. The Selfie and ID Image will jointly be visible in a secure internal portal viewable on a more restricted basis as needed in compliance with applicable law and any banking and card association requirements.
In connection with our review and evaluation of AV Documents submitted to us, either we or a third-party contracted by us, may generate biometric data based upon the AV Documents. If you do not wish to have your information used in line with this Policy, you must not submit AV Documents.
What is Biometric Data?
Biometric data is any biological characteristics of a person, or information based upon such a characteristic, including characteristics such as those defined as "biometric identifiers" and "biometric information" under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, 740 ILCS 14/1, et seq. "Biometric identifier" means a retina or iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scan of hand or face geometry. "Biometric information" means any information, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored, or shared, based on an individual's biometric identifier used to identify an individual.
Biometric Data We May Collect and Process
As briefly noted above, when you submit AV Documents to us, either directly or through a secure third party, including Jumio Corporation, a three-dimensional scan of your face geometry will be generated. Additionally, optical character recognition may be used in reviewing your ID Image data to generate text records related to such ID Image for age verification compliance purposes.
Why is Biometric Data Collected?
Your biometric data is generated and collected in furtherance of our age verification procedures and practices, which exist to prevent underage and other unauthorized use of the Site. This information is used to further ensure that the individual providing the AV Documents is the person depicted in such documents and the person accessing the account(s) with which such documents are associated.
How is Your Biometric Data Stored?
Your Selfie will be stored separately from your original AV Documents and made available through a secure, close-ended system to our compliance and age verification team to confirm that you are the person appearing through your account. Your ID Image will be stored separately in a secure system. Your AV Documents will only be reviewed by members of our team engaged in age verification, routine audits of previously submitted age verification, and as noted above, as necessary for compliance with applicable law and other requirements under our banking relationships and card association requirements. Any and all biometric data generated from your AV Documents (the "Biometric Data") is also stored securely and separately apart from your Selfie. The Biometric Data will only be used in connection with the age verification review process.
How Long is Your Biometric Data Stored?
Your Biometric Data will be retained for the same period as your AV Documents which documents are retained as required by 18 USC § 2257 and its regulations (the "Regulations"). As of the date this Policy is written, the Regulations require that the AV Documents be retained for a period of seven (7) years from the last time content was available through your account(s).
We reserve the right to, either directly or through a third-party, generate a unique code based on the AV Documents and Biometric Data to be used for internal account linking and in connection with the age verification process. To be clear, this unique code will not contain all or any part of your Biometric Data nor will it contain the data from your ID Image. The unique code permits for the easy association of accounts and updating your records as and when your identification is updated by you as required herein.
No Obligation to Accept AV Documents
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, we reserve the right to specify which government-issued photo identification may be accepted based upon your location, our interpretation of applicable law/regulation and other requirements, and our sole determination of the reliability or risk of such documentation. We further reserve the right to require a second form of valid government-issued photo identification for further age verification as and when we determine appropriate, including based upon your location, our sole determination of the risk associated with any specific piece of documentation, and other factors we deem appropriate.
Your Responsibility Regarding AV Documents
You agree that you are responsible for updating and replacing your AV Documents as and when necessary, including, by way of example only, when your government-issued identification expires, if you move and update your address, if you have a name change, if you have your gender updated, your identification is revoked or destroyed, and/or non-insignificant changes in your appearance.
All data collected from and about users is retained in compliance with our internal data retention policy in order to comply with applicable law, regulations, and obligations as well as for fraud detection purposes. If we receive a request to delete your personally identifying information, all information will be deleted in compliance with law and rules related to card issuers and payment processing.
