This policy refers to how we safeguard the privacy of our website visitors. For information on how we safeguard the privacy of the users of our age checking services, please scroll down to the ‘Our Privacy Statement’ section below.
AgeChecked Limited (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the http://www.AgeChecked.com website (the “Service”).
We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors.

While using our Website and when making an enquiry, we may ask you to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact you. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to, your name (“Personal Information”). This information will not be shared with any organisation, other than an organisation that provides email or messaging services and for the sole purpose of us contacting you.
We may employ third party companies and individuals to assist in providing the Website, to perform services related to providing the Website, or to assist us in analyzing how our Website is used. We do not share your Personal Information with these third parties.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
AgeChecked Ltd (“us”, “we”, or “our”) provides a service (the “Service”) to organisations to check on the suitability of their customers to access age-restricted products or services.
We take your privacy extremely seriously. This statement informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Identifiable Information (“Your Information”) when you use our Service.
We constantly strive to minimise the requirement for our users to disclose personal information. It is possible to use our Service without disclosing Your Information in some instances. However, in order to meet the requirements of regulators it is sometimes necessary for us to process Your Information to provide the Service.
We will not use or share Your Information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Statement. We do not use Your Information for any other reason other than to provide the Service. We do not retain Personal Identifiable Information, only anonymised data.
Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Statement, terms used in this Privacy Statement have the same meanings as in our Terms and Conditions, accessible on our website https://www.agechecked.com.
INFORMATION COLLECTION USE AND STORAGE
While using our Service, we may ask you to provide us with Your Information in an iframe/web portal that is hosted securely by us. This information can be used to check your suitability to access age-restricted products or services (“Age Checking”) and send your account information. We do not share Your Information with third parties for any purpose other than Age Checking. We do not share Your Information to the organisation that has asked us to provide this Age Checking Service for them (“Website Operator”).
A Website Operator may send us Your Information and ask us to Age Check you using that information. We may return the results of the Age Check to the Website Operator, but we will not send Your Information to the Website Operator.
For clarity, a Website Operator, will only receive data from us so that they may ascertain your suitability to access the age-restricted service, and not Your Information itself.
Information that we may collect on you, and use to ascertain your suitability to access the age-restricted service could be:
• Your name
• Your date of birth or age
• Your telephone number
• Your address
• Your email address
• Your IP address
• Your payment card information
• Information derived from Government issued documentation
• Politically exposed persons (PEPs), sanctions and exclusions data
Once an age check has taken place any of Your Information that may have been gathered during the age checking process is removed from our system, apart from:
• Your date of birth or age
• Politically exposed persons (PEPs), sanctions and exclusions data (if applicable).
Thus, the information that remains is anonymised and used to ascertain your suitability to access age-restricted services.
We create data to enable our users to anonymously verify their age without having to disclose their identity via anonymised accounts. We maintain these accounts for client compliance purposes and other valid purposes.
Anonymised accounts can be deactivated at any time by a user through the user portal.
We may employ the following third-party companies to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist us in analysing how our Service is used:
• Equifax Ltd
• GB Group Plc
• TransUnion Ltd
• Verime Ltd
