In order to make your identity verification, we are using as well the solution of partner Onfido that match photo image or video records of your face point that you provide through a mobile app or camera with your ID document. Please read more about Onfido solution here: https://onfido.com/.
Onfido solution is used for comparing live photographic data or video record of yourself and your ID card/passport, to comply with legal obligations (e.g. implementation of the obligations under the Law on Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention of the Republic of Lithuania and other fraud and crime prevention purposes) and risk management obligations.
The result of the face similarity (match or mismatch) will be retained for as long as it is necessary to carry out verification and for the period required by anti-money laundering laws.
We ensure that your face similarity check is a process of comparing data acquired at the time of the verification, i.e. this is a one-time user authorization by comparing two person's photos to each other. Your facial template is not created, recorded and stored. It is not possible to regenerate the raw data from retained information.
Using Onfido services, personal data is not used for your identification since Onfido verifies the identity of the person in the identity document and the person captured in the photo.
This process shall allow us to verify you more precisely and will make the process quicker and easier to carry out. Using Onfido services is a part of our KYC procedure which is necessary for the provision of Genome Wallet and Genome Services to you. If you do not feel comfortable with this method, you may contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org for further clarification.
We want to make it clear how we use your personal data for marketing purposes.
We may use our existing clients’ e–mail for the marketing of our similar goods or services, unless you object to the use of your e-mail for the marketing of our similar goods and services. You are granted with a clear, free of charge and easily realisable possibility to object or withdraw from such use of your contact details on the occasion of each message.
We may also provide the information to you as our client about our products or services by sending messages through the application. Such messages may be viewed in the notification center, in case you do not choose the “opt-out” function in our application.
In other cases, we may use your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, if you give us your prior consent regarding such use of data.
We are entitled to offer the services provided by our business partners or other third parties to you or make assessments about your opinion on different issues in relation to our business partners or other third parties on the legal basis for this, i.e. on the basis of a prior consent.
In case you do not agree to receive these marketing messages and/or calls offered by us, our business partners or third parties, this will not have any impact on the provision of services to you as the client.
We provide a clear, free-of-charge and easily realisable possibility for you at any time not to give your consent or to withdraw your given consent for sending proposals put forward by us. We shall state in each notification sent by e-mail that you are entitled to object to the processing of the personal data or refuse to receive notifications from us. You shall be entitled to refuse to receive notifications from us by clicking on the respective link in each e-mail notification.
The main goal of gathering and processing your personal data is to deliver effective, scalable, smooth, and personalized Genome experience. Hence, personal data we collect might be used to:
Ensure maximum Genome Wallet user experience;
In some cases we may make automated decisions regarding you using your information. When you instruct us to make a payment from your account, or to request a payment into your account from a bank or other payment services provider, our systems (or systems provided to us by our suppliers) make an automated check for authorization and automated checks to detect an unusual transaction pattern or location of your transaction and help us to fight fraud.
Please be informed that you can request a manual review of the accuracy of an automated decision in case you are not satisfied with it and you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on such automated processing.
We warrant and represent that Genome has implemented the technical and organizational security measures and technological development to ensure an appropriate level of security of personal data. Your data is protected by the means of physical, technical, and administrative resources to lower the risks of loss, misusage, unauthorized entry, disclosure, or alteration by third parties.

We also collect personal information about you from third parties, mainly:
For the purpose to provide you with Genome Services we can engage the third-party service providers outside the EU. In such case personal data may be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA), including to the United States. Data protection law of third countries may be different from EU data protection laws and not guaranty adequate level of security. However, we will take measures to ensure that any such transfers comply with applicable data protection laws and that personal data remains protected.
As we provide international services, your personal data may be transferred and processed outside EEA.
The transfer of personal data may be considered as needed in such situations as, e.g.:
When you act as a joint data controller, you shall inform your clients about risks of cross-border transfers and obtain their consent for that.
There are different ways to ensure that your personal data is treated securely, mainly:
We may transfer personal data to a third country by taking other measures if it ensures appropriate safeguards as indicated in applicable law.
We may use your data for as long as reasonably necessary for the limited purpose of providing Genome Services to you.
In the cases when the terms of data keeping are indicated in the legislative regulations, the legislative regulations are applied.
Your personal data might be stored longer if:
When we act as data controller, you have the following rights for personal data that we have about you:
We will exercise your rights only after we receive your written request to exercise a particular right indicated above and only after confirming the validity of your identity. The written request shall be submitted to us by personally appearing at the registered office address of Genome, by ordinary mail or by e-mail: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your requests shall be fulfilled or fulfilment of your requests shall be refused by specifying the reasons for such refusal within 30 (thirty) calendar days from the date of submission of the request meeting our internal rules and GDPR. The afore-mentioned time frame may be extended for 30 (thirty) calendar days by giving a prior notice to you if the request is related to a great scope of personal data or other simultaneously examined requests. A response to you will be provided in a form of your choosing as the requester.
Moreover, you have the right to submit a complaint to us if you reasonably believe that processing of personal data related to you is performed in violation of the applicable legal requirements. You can submit a complaint by post or e-mail, specifying your name, surname, contact details, relevant information, which would indicate why you reasonably believe that the processing of the data related to you is performed in violation of the applicable legal requirements. Upon receipt of a complaint from you, we confirm receipt of the complaint and indicate the time limit within which the reply will be submitted. In each case, the deadline for submitting a reply may vary as it directly depends on the extent and complexity of the complaint filed, but we will make the maximum effort to provide the response to you within the shortest possible time. We, after examining the complaint, report the results and actions taken to satisfy your complaint, or provide relevant information on what further actions you may take if your complaint was not satisfied.
You can also address the State Data Protection Inspectorate with a claim regarding the processing of your personal data if you believe that the personal data is processed in a way that violates your rights and legitimate interests stipulated by applicable legislation.
