With the rise of facial recognition technologies, regulators recognized the importance of privacy and protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII). This has led to the application of stricter data protection regulations, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), HIPAA, BIPA and more.
According to GDPR, facial images are considered “Sensitive Personal Data” and are subject to strict security requirements and restrictions. All companies that handle the personal data of EU citizens are required to meet these new data protection requirements.
D-ID enables organizations to comply with increasingly-strict privacy regulations, protecting sensitive biometric databases and reducing liability – even in the event of a data breach. Our unique solution helps companies implement crucial GDPR principles, including Privacy by Default, the Right to be Forgotten and Privacy by Design, which promotes privacy and data protection by integrating privacy principles early in the development process.
