No, it is entirely opt-in.
Yes, because it is a decentralized KYC solution.
Persona is an identity verification industry leader and works with cryptocurrency exchanges such as BlockFi, Swan, Dacxi and TantraLabs, as well as companies such as Square and Postmates to help facilitate identity verification. Persona securely stores all photos of identity documents that you upload, photos of your face that you upload, and data from scans of facial geometry extracted from the photos of your face that you upload in an encrypted format on their servers.
Persona will not sell, lease, trade, or, other than to provide the Verification to their partners. Persona will not disclose, redisclose, or otherwise disseminate data from scans of facial geometry extracted from the photos of your face that you upload unless doing so:
- A. Completes a Customer transaction requested and authorized by you or your legally authorized representative;
- B. Is required by state or federal law, or municipal ordinance;
- C. Is required pursuant to a warrant or subpoena issued by a court of competent jurisdiction;
- or D. Is expressly consented to by you.
Persona does not use, share, rent or sell the Personal Data of our Users’ Customers for interest-based advertising. We do not sell or rent the Personal Data of our Users, their Customers or our Site visitors.
See the Persona Security and Privacy page for more information.
Persona collects a set of information (documentary, selfie, non-documentary) to identify users, and deter would-be fraudsters. This information is stored in a dashboard to track verifications and corresponding decisions (pass / fail).
However, Unstoppable Domains and Login With Unstoppable-integrated apps do not have access to this data. They only have access to the randomized Persona ID that is generated by the verification process.
NO, once users verify they are given a randomly-generated number that represents their Persona ID number.
The randomized Persona ID that is created during the verification process is off-chain data. The personal information (selfie photo and photo of ID) is held on Persona’s server.
We partner on the identity verification side of the humanity check. To be fully decentralized we’d need an identity provider that was decentralized. Due to the nature of how the personal identity is verified, finding such a provider may be a few years out. We are open to suggestions if the community has a decentralized identity provider recommendation for partnership.
UD does due diligence on all its partners and is always looking for new ones. UD uses their current partner because of their trust in the space
There are a number of advantages for decentralized apps to use humanity check with login with unstoppable versus partner with an identity provider themselves.
- Dapps won’t need to manage PII data
- Dapps don’t need to pay for verifications
- Dapp users can go through humanity check once and use the check across every integrated dapp for Unstoppable Domains.
