Signicat Authentication Privacy Statement

At Signicat, we value your privacy. The main section of this privacy statement describes which personal data Signicat collects from you, how Signicat processes such personal data, and why Signicat collects the personal data in connection with Signicat's provision of products.

Signicat is an electronic identity services provider who enables connection and interaction between organizations and their customers through verified digital identities. Signicat is a private company registered in Norway with organization number 989 584 022 and its registered main office located at Beddingen 16, 7042 Trondheim, Norway. Please direct any questions or requests to privacy@signicat.com or the channels provided at www.signicat.com.

Please refer to the product-specific descriptions below that set out any deviations from these main principles or for further details on our processing or collection of personal data for each product.

Please note that Signicat acts as a processor for most of the personal data we process, whereas Signicat's customer is the controller. Signicat has signed data processing agreements with customers acting as controllers to secure your privacy. In cases where you, as an end user, have questions about how personal data is processed, the controller must be contacted.

Signicat Authentication

The Signicat Authentication product family consists of the following products: Signicat MobileID InApp, MobileID App, SCID (SignicatID) API, SMS OTP, Email OTP and Password Login.

In all Authentication-related products, Signicat acts as a data processor on behalf of our customer (company). End users are managed by the merchant company that acts as a data controller. When an authentication transaction is performed, logs are created for different purposes and with different retention periods. For an authentication transaction with Signicat’s Authentication products, logs are never kept more than 12 months before they are permanently deleted.

Purpose and processing

The controllers and responsible entities for such content are Signicat's respective customers. As the data processor, Signicat signs a data processor agreement with the client as data controller. The data processor agreement establishes the framework for Signicat's personal data processing activities. The specific security measures and deletion deadline for processing will be established in each individual data processor agreement.

The purpose of Signicat Authentication is to authenticate users by either using public eID schemes or by using Signicat’s in-house built authentication methods.

The following personal information will be processed for end users of the controller:

  • Person name
  • National ID
  • Email address
  • Mobile phone number
  • Date of birth
  • Physical address
  • IP address
  • Client meta information

  • Device ID

  • User ID
  • User agent
  • User pattern

3rd party eID providers offer different sets of end user data, and the subject list above will differ somewhat between eID vendors’ provided data.
