Age verification provider YOTI
fawnstars have partnered with Yoti to provide its digital identity platform that provides a simple and secure way of proving identities, online. All of Yoti's services are certified as compliant with the ISO/IEC 27001:2013 international standard for Information Security. The certificate is valid until 29 April 2024. Each year, Yoti undergoes audits as a condition of its ISO 27001 certifications. In October 2019, Yoti was certified under the ‘Age Check Certification Scheme’. This allows us to provide Electronic Identification Verification Technology (e-IDVT) to issuers of ‘PASS’ (Proof of Age Standards Scheme) cards in the UK.
In June 2020, Yoti was awarded the Seal of Approval from the German Association for Voluntary Self-Regulation of Digital Media Service Providers (FSM) to help to provide protection of child protection online in Germany. In December 2020, the KJM (German Commission for Youth Media Protection) approved Yoti’s age verification approaches.
In the USA, Yoti complies with the HIPAA ‘Privacy Rule’ and ‘Security Rule’ for storing health data. Our first HIPAA assessment was in May 2020. We will repeat our assessment each year.
