Biometric Privacy Statement
Iris ID is a global leader in recognition technology and is committed to data privacy and transparency. Iris ID has prepared this Biometric Privacy Statement to inform and educate customers, potential customers, product users, and members of the public regarding Iris ID’s biometric data practices.

About Biometrics
The term “biometrics” refers to unique characteristics about each of us which may be used to quickly, efficiently, and safely identify us. Biometrics include identifiers such as retina or iris scans, fingerprints, voiceprints, and scans of hand or face geometry. Data about one’s biometrics, such as data about one’s iris scan, is often referred to as “biometric information.” Generally, biometric information does not include other types of information that may be used to identify a person, such as writing samples, written signatures, photographs, biological samples, demographic data, tattoo descriptions, or physical descriptions such as height, weight, hair color, or eye color. Biometric information also means information that is based upon an individual’s biometric identifiers, such as an iris scan that may be converted into a special format or stored using certain technology.

About Our Products
Biometric information is used in numerous applications and products across a variety of industries and contexts.  Our products similarly span a range of applications, including access control, time and attendance, public safety, criminal justice, transportation, immigration, and national identity. Our products are used to ensure appropriate access to organizations from data centers to airports to primary schools. Our products keep track of employee time and hours, identify incarcerated individuals, and facilitate airline staff to be easily and securely granted access to appropriate areas.

This Biometric Privacy Statement applies to all of our current products, except as may be set forth otherwise.
