Why does Digidentity process personal data?
Collecting and processing personal data is inextricably connected to the products and services that Digidentity provides. A verified online identity can only be established using this data, as without it, anyone could apply for an online identity in your place. For more information on Digidentity and its relationship with GOV.UK Verify, please see the following article: Why have I been directed to verify my identity?
What happens if I do not give consent for Digidentity to collect, process and store personal data?
In this case, unfortunately it will not be possible for you to use our service as we will not be able to verify the information we need to verify your identity. If you have already provided consent, but choose to withdraw it, Digidentity will no longer collect, process or store your personal data and will cease to provide you with access to its products and services.
