A 2018 Year End Update from AVSecure
As the year draws to a close, we wanted to provide you with an update on the Digital Economy Act, and our platform.
At AVSecure, we have been working hard on our age verification solution so that in 2019, we will be ready, able and willing to provide you with one of the most advanced and secure age verification systems available.
The House of Lords and The House of Commons have now (as of 17/12) approved the guidance for the BBFC and now we wait on DCMS for a formal start date. It has already been suggested that "before Easter" is the target set internally by government, and we are working with numerous providers now in helping them plan for a mid April start date. In January we will be releasing the ability to sign up to AVSecure's test system without commitment. This will prepare you for integration to the full production version so that you can be confident you are properly prepared for the April go-live date. Please monitor our website for ongoing updates.
As it's the season of goodwill, we are pleased to remind you that AVSecure will remain FREE for business and merchant use. No catches, no onerous contracts, no billing based on volumes, just a reflection of our considered business strategy which will help ensure that you and your customers are in the very safest of hands.
XBIZ AND INTERNEXT
AVSecure will host an exclusive age verification workshop for Xbiz on the 15th January 2019 at 2pm in LA. We will discuss all matters relating to AV, the law, how to comply, what content you can show before the AV wall, how to integrate and much more.
We have also co-sponsored the suite with MojoHost in Vegas from the 22nd-25th January so please join us at either venue if you are able.
BBFC APPROVAL SCHEME
AVSecure will participate in the BBFC's certification process to demonstrate our targeting of the very highest standards of data protection and privacy. As we hold NO individual data and can't track a user journey, we are striving for their highest accolade.
Over the last two years, AVSecure has evolved into an innovative and formidable technology company with multiple facets centered around privacy, security and technical innovation, including our own private blockchain.
With approximately 25 million consumers needing to age verify, we remain aware of the importance to protect them. AVSecure holds no personal data in our product systems so it is simply not possible for us to suffer a data breach.
We will offer multiple verification methods including mobile phone verification, credit card, debit card, driving license, passport, YOTI, Paysafecard and The Age Verification Card. We provide a versatile choice for all consumers, including the highly privacy conscious.
As ever, if you'd like to speak with a member of our team about our age verification solution, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
