How does Bitvavo use my ID?

Before you can exceed certain trading limits or if you want to deposit or withdraw digital currencies, it is necessary that your identity has been verified. Please note, Bitvavo will always handle your identity document with care and has the following measures in place to ensure this:

  • Your identity document is checked by a reputable and specialised service provider, who deletes your identity document after verification.
  • Bitvavo receives the information that the specialised service provider has selected from your document.
  • The information is sent to us encrypted and stored on a offline server.
  • The employees of Bitvavo who have access to your personal data all have a ‘certificate of conduct’ and have been excessively screened.

Your personal data is extremely well secured by taking these measures. Additional information can be found in our privacy statement or our terms and conditions.
