5. Data processing methods

5.1. SumSub’s liveness tool takes images (hereinafter – the Scan) of a real person’s face (hereinafter – the True Scan Object) via a web camera by scanning the face in a random manner. Attempts to fool SumSub’s liveness tool may be made by scanning any other object instead of the human face, such as images projected on digital screens, synthetic masks, etc. (hereinafter – the False Scan Object). After the Scan is collected, SumSub’s liveness tool will instantly process it to determine whether it depicts the True Scan Object or the False Scan Object.

The photo/scan of a person’s face (hereinafter – the Facial Features) and a template of their identity document (hereinafter – the ID) are uploaded into the SumSub’s liveness and ID check tool via a web camera. The software verifies the security features contained in the ID and compares the image of the ID to the respective Facial Features. Algorithms generate the results of both checks and score them in order to determine whether the ID is authentic and matches the respective Facial Features.

5.2. The consent expressed hereby encompasses the following processing activities, which may be carried out manually or via automated systems: collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval within the Data Controller’s systems, consultation, use; disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available as described in clause 9.1 below; alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
