Biometric Data User refers to any person who collects or use biometric data utilizing ZKTeco’s device, hardware and software
1. The purpose of biometric data collection
It is data user’s responsibility to inform all users or persons whose biometric data are collected, that all the collected biometric data are only used for time attendance and access control purposes.
Data User must collect users’ biometric templates only on a legal and fair basis.
ZKTeco’s devices and all biometric templates stored in its management software are built with precise algorithms and may be in various methods encrypted, in order to prevent data leakage of users to the greatest extent.
ZKTeco, with rich experience of software and hardware development, to the greatest extent ensures that all biometric data and personal data are stored accurately, in order to provide customers best user experience.
When using ZKTeco’s software and hardware, data user is responsible for ensuring that all users’ data are not stored in ZKTeco’s software and hardware unless necessary.
ZKTeco’s hardware applies different biometric templates during operation, but all templates are not remained in the CPU of the hardware, and after users’ biometric templates are deleted in ZKTeco’s hardware and software (according to actual situation), the templates are permanently deleted and not remained in any format.
If data user wishes to apply the collected biometric templates to any purpose other than any use authorized, they are responsible for reintroducing to the users and obtain their consents before doing so.
ZKTeco’s applied biometric algorithms do not collect complete biometric features of the collected persons, instead only 10 to 50 feature points are collected for calculation. Even if biometric templates are illegally obtained, it is not possible to reorganize them into complete biometric features. In ZKTeco’s software and hardware, various advanced electronic encryption techniques have been applied for the greatest extent of protection to data security.
Physiological data born with an individual
DNA samples, fingerprint, palm veins, iris, retina
Facial images and hand geometries
Behavioral data developed by an individual
hand writing pattern, typing rhythm, gait, voice
Biometric data alone is not regarded as personal data according to law, as it may not reveal identities. However,
if biometric data is stored in a database that links customers/staff members, they are personal data.
