In order to offer safety and reliability as a service provider, we offer a profile verification by checking your identity using an electronic ID check. For this purpose, we work together with PXL Vision AG, Mühlebachstrasse 164, 8008 Zurich. If you select profile verification as part of the profile settings, you will automatically be redirected to the external PXL Vision application for ID verification. The PXL Vision application then carries out the verification of your ID document data on its own responsibility. You will be informed by PXL Vision about the processing of your data in the verification process before the identification process begins. You will be asked to photograph your identification document from both sides and take a short selfie video of yourself. PXL Vision then verifies that your ID is genuine and that your face captured in the video matches the ID. After successful identification, PXL Vision will ask for your consent to share the identity verification data with Lemonfrog, or the Lemonfrog website you use. Upon your consent, PXL Vision will transmit to us the photo and video files taken during the identity verification process, as well as the personal data read from your identification document, for the purpose of matching them with your registered user data. We then match the data received from PXL Vision with your registration data and delete it again after successful matching.
