GDPR Compliance for

Online Identity Verification

Acuant is fully GDPR compliant as a data processor and we want to enable our current and future partners to be prepared to meet requirements. 


GDPR was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. You can learn more about the legislation here.


At Acuant, we believe that individuals should be in control of their Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and recognize that the need for strong, customer-friendly identity proofing solutions has never been greater. As PII is continuously jeopardized, we serve to create trusted transactions that put individuals at ease and in control, while simultaneously allowing businesses to address their appropriate level of risk and regulations.


Acuant offers a range of identity verification solutions that allow businesses the ability to maintain data protection and be compliant with GDPR requirements. 

How Acuant applies GDPR Compliance & Identity Verification
