What is Biometric Data?
Biometric data is identifying information related to your biometric characteristics which may be used to identify you. Examples of common forms of biometric data that you may use in your daily life include fingerprints, voiceprints, veins in your palm, facial recognition, and iris or retina recognition. When PalmKash talks about “Biometric Data”, we are referring to certain physical information we collect about you (such as your palm print or internal vein pattern) in order to identify you individually in order to provide you our resources and services available through our Website, applications and APIs (the “Services”).
How does PalmKash collect your Biometric Data?
When you sign up for a PalmKash account, you will provide certain Biometric Data at a PalmKash kiosk. PalmKash collects that Biometric Data and encrypts, tokenises, and stores it on PalmKash’s data servers, which PalmKash will use to identify you when you want to use the Services. PalmKash does not collect, capture, receive or otherwise obtain your Biometric Data without your consent or without the consent of your legally authorized representative. You may decline to provide your Biometric Data. However, if you decline to provide Biometric Data, certain Services that require the use of such data will become unavailable to you. You may also experience a loss of functionality of some or all of the Services that we provide.
Is your Biometric Data secure?
How does PalmKash use your Biometric Data?
In order to use the Services, such as at a point of sale, you will use an input device or terminal designed to collect your Biometric Data, which will then be encrypted and sent to PalmKash and compared with the Biometric Data you provided when you enrolled and signed up for your PalmKash account. If it is a match, your transaction will be approved and your account will be charged for the purchase you are making.
Does PalmKash share or sell your Biometric Data?
PalmKash does not sell, lease, or trade your Biometric Data to any third parties or derive any profit in such a manner. PalmKash may work with certain third parties to provide the Services to you, but only as necessary to provide you with such Services. We do not disclose, re-disclose or otherwise disseminate your Biometric Data without your request or consent or without the request or consent of your legally authorized representative. However, in certain specific instances, we may be compelled to disclose your Biometric Data in cases where such disclosure or re-disclosure is required by State law when required pursuant to a valid warrant or subpoena issued by a court of competent jurisdiction.
How long does PalmKash keep your Biometric Data?
In order to deliver the Services to you, PalmKash stores and uses your Biometric Data as long as you have an active account with PalmKash. Your account is considered “active” as long as you have made at least one purchase using PalmKash within the last year (unless you specifically request that we close your account sooner). You may request that we delete your Biometric Data by notifying us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What happens to your Biometric Data after you close your account?
After you close your account (or your account automatically closes, as described above), PalmKash will keep your Biometric Data on file for up to one year, for reasons including fraud prevention. PalmKash will permanently destroy your Biometric Data on or before the one-year anniversary of the date that you cancel your account (or the one-year anniversary after the date that you last used your PalmKash account). After your account is closed, you will need to re-enroll and provide your Biometric Data to PalmKash again before you can use the Services.
