Why we need to know about your residence

At Sumsub, safeguarding your privacy and ensuring the security of your data are our top priorities. As a trusted provider of user identity verification services, we adhere to the highest standards of data protection, including strict compliance with US privacy laws governing the processing of biometric data.

We understand that you may have questions regarding the necessity of providing consent for the processing of your biometric data, especially in instances where US residents use non-US services outside of the US. Allow us to clarify that regardless of geographical location, if you are a US resident, we are obligated to obtain your consent for the processing of biometric data in accordance with US privacy laws. This is a regulatory requirement that Sumsub must comply with.

This process serves not only to protect your identity but also to ensure compliance with legal regulations, even when accessing services outside the US. By obtaining your consent, we can verify your identity accurately, enabling you to securely access the services offered by our clients.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
