Age Verification Client T&Cs (the “Agreement”)
Last updated on: 31 March 2022
This Agreement governs your use of Age Verification on your Client Applications. Yoti is a trading name of Yoti Ltd.
By clicking the Register button, a legally binding contract on the following terms and conditions will be created between Yoti and the Client which agrees to this Agreement. The Client is referred to as “you” or “your”.
Please note: clauses 4.2 and 4.4 state, among other restrictions, that you may not use Attributes received through Age Verification to ‘tag’ in any way any user account as age verified or over age. Further, you may not transfer any Attributes to any third party. Breach of clauses 4.2 and 4.4 will be considered a material breach of this Agreement, giving Yoti the right to suspend or terminate your access to Age Verification immediately.
IT IS AGREED
This Agreement uses phrases which have specific meanings. They are set out in Schedule 1.
1. Data protection
1.1. Where Yoti is a Data Processor and the Client is a Data Controller of Personal Data, Yoti will comply with the data processing agreement in Schedule 2.
1.2. Age Verification can be configured by you to provide you with the age or the age+ status. Age Verification will not send you a date of birth, name or any other identifiable personal data. Age Verification can be configured as to which age verification methods are offered to your Users, but Digital ID (the Yoti app) and Age Estimation are mandatory methods.
2. Use of Age Verification
Grant of licence
2.1. Yoti grants to you a non-transferable, non-sub-licensable, royalty free, revocable, non-exclusive licence to use Age Verification for the Client Applications from the date on which Yoti approves the opening of your Hub Account. This licence is automatically suspended during any period when your use of your Hub account is suspended and will terminate automatically and irrevocably on termination of this Agreement for any reason.
2.2. Yoti may amend any part of Age Verification at any time in its absolute discretion with no prior warning to you, including by adding or removing methods of age verification, provided that no other change materially reduces the functionality of Age Verification.
2.3. Yoti may need to amend the Software every now and again to fix bugs, improve security or improve functionality. In the unlikely event that a change in your integration or the Software is required by you then you must do so within 30 days of notice from Yoti.
2.4. If you are using Age Estimation or Yoti IDV on US citizens then it is a condition of this Agreement that you toggle ‘on’ the consent collection option for age estimation and Yoti IDV (if face match or liveness is being used). Any biometric template received by you through Age Estimation or Yoti IDV must be deleted within three years of the initial purpose being satisfied or the last interaction with the user, whichever occurs first. You need to publish a policy explaining your use of biometrics and your retention period. You indemnify us against all losses (including damages, settlement costs, defending lawsuits and regulatory action against us) for any failure to comply with this paragraph.
Restrictions on use
2.5. In relation to your use of Age Verification, either during the term of this Agreement or at any time afterwards, it is a condition of this Agreement that you must:
a. only use it in compliance with all applicable laws;
b. only use Age Verification to receive Attributes solely for proper and lawful business purposes and otherwise in accordance with this Agreement;
c. only make backup copies of the Software for your lawful use. You must keep a written record of the number and location of Software copies, which you must provide to Yoti on request, and take all reasonable steps to prevent unauthorised copying of the Software;
d. not use any methods in Age Verification to determine if they are within the scope of a patent;
e. not modify, copy, adapt, translate or create derivative works based on any part of Age Verification or attempt to discover any source code or underlying ideas or algorithms or reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble any part of Age Verification for any purpose;
f. not attempt to gain, or gain, unauthorised access to, or disrupt the integrity or performance of Age Verification or any Attributes;
g. not use Age Verification or any Attributes or any generated results to directly or indirectly train any machine learning algorithm;
h. not use Age Verification to commit, or with the intention to commit, any unlawful, fraudulent, dishonest, threatening, invasive or improper behaviour;
i. not and are not permitted to sub-license, assign, hold on trust or novate this Agreement to or on behalf of any person;
j. provide all cooperation and information reasonably required by Yoti in relation to Age Verification, including all information and materials reasonably required by Yoti to make Age Verification available to you. You must ensure that such information is up-to-date and accurate in all material respects;
k. not provide a service which is the same as or similar to Age Verification or use any part of Age Verification to build a competitive product or service or copy its features, technology or user interface;
l. not store an image of the photo or still frame used by Yoti to estimate age without Yoti’s prior written approval, which it can withhold in its absolute discretion; or
m. not act or omit to act in any way that results in damage to Yoti’s business or reputation.
3.1 Yoti reserves the right to cease supporting Digital ID for older mobile operating systems that are no longer supported by Google or Apple and for phone models that are not used by a significant proportion of Yoti users in Yoti’s absolute opinion. Yoti is not liable to you if Google or Apple remove Digital ID from their respective app stores for any reason.
3.2. Yoti may change its onboarding or verification processes for the Digital ID or IDV at any time. Digital ID and IDV do not accept every identity document. You must check Yoti’s published materials to check if the national documents you require are supported by Digital ID and IDV. Yoti reserves the right to amend the list at any time without notice.
3.3. The Transaction Charges for IDV are just for an automated data extraction of the age from an ID document. If you require either: (a) manual fall back of the data extraction where automation does not work; or (b) automated or manual liveness, face match or document authenticity checks then Yoti will charge a higher fee in accordance with its published rates. Please speak to us if you require more than an automated data extraction check.
3.4. Transaction Charges for the age verification methods are on the basis that they are acceptable to your local regulators. If more robust liveness or anti-fraud measures are required then we may need to charge extra for them.
3.5. If a territory that you operate in has or introduces a data localisation requirement that affects how we deliver Age Verification, then we reserve the right to charge a higher fee.
4. Use of Attributes
4.1. You are permitted to use Attributes provided to you by Users for your proper and lawful purposes in order to verify the age of Users with respect to your Client Applications.
4.2. You are not permitted to add the Attributes from Age Verification to any form of user account or user profile, or re-use the trust or any information gleaned from Attributes in any user account or user profile. This means that you must receive an Attribute from Age Verification each time a User comes to a Client Application.
4.4. Except with the prior written consent of Yoti you may not resell, sublicense, lease, share, transfer, make representations about or otherwise make available any Attribute or any trust or information gleaned from the foregoing to any third party or as part of any joint venture or partnership with any third party. Further, you may not store any Attribute in any publicly distributed ledger (such as a public blockchain) without our written prior consent, which we can withhold in our absolute discretion.
4.5. Yoti may, but has no obligation to you, submit identity documents and selfies of suspected fraudsters to law enforcement or government bodies to help those bodies in their detection and prevention of fraud. We may use identity documents submitted to Yoti by your customers to improve and train our anti-fraud techniques and to maintain a database of suspected fraudsters, all of which will be in line with our privacy policies.
5. Third Party Service
Various Third Party Services are offered for age verification through Age Verification. Yoti has no obligation to host any Third Party Services on Age Verification, but we may in our sole discretion choose to do so from time to time. We can withdraw the provision of any Third Party Service on Age Verification at any time without giving you notice. Yoti does not guarantee that any Third Party Service is suitable for any particular purpose and as between Yoti and you the Third Party Service is provided “as is” and we disclaim any and all implied or express representations, warranties, terms or conditions in connection with the Third Party Service.
6. Fees and Transaction Charges
6.1. Transaction Charges shall be calculated in accordance with the prices we have agreed with you in a written side letter and shall be payable in pounds sterling. They are stated exclusive of VAT.

6.3. Some of our Fees and Transaction Charges are reduced if you are an Eligible Charity, please contact us.

If you do not have a saved payment card, you shall receive a payment link, requiring you to enter your payment card details for each invoice issued to you. You must settle any outstanding invoices within 14 days of the date of the invoice.
6.7. If you fail to make any payment due to Yoti under this Agreement by the due date then, without limiting Yoti’s other remedies, we may charge interest on the overdue amount at 4% per annum above Barclays Bank’s sterling base rate from time to time. Interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until actual payment of the overdue amount, including before and after judgment. You must pay the interest together with the overdue amount.
6.8. You must pay all amounts due under this Agreement in full without any set-off, counterclaim, deduction or withholding (except for any deduction or withholding required by law). Yoti may at any time, without limiting its other rights or remedies, set off any amount owed to it by you against any amount payable by Yoti to you.
7. Suspension and Termination

g. your use of Age Verification or use of Attributes for any other reason whatsoever if Yoti believes, in its absolute discretion, that there is reasonable cause to do so.

Alternatively, Yoti may elect on notice to you to restrict your use of Age Verification by territory rather than terminate the Agreement;
g. you are or become a competitor of Yoti or Age Verification, or that you control any person or organisation which is a competitor of Yoti or Age Verification. Yoti shall determine if you are a competitor in its sole discretion; or

Accuracy of Attributes
10.1. Yoti will use its reasonable skill and care in verifying or authenticating (including when using the Products in which Attributes are estimated, like Age Estimation) Attributes of Users, but will have no liability to you, and hereby disclaims to the fullest extent possible under applicable laws all implied representations, warranties, conditions and terms in respect of the accuracy of any Attributes, whether verified by Yoti or not; all Attributes are acquired and used by you at your own risk.
10.2. Yoti gives no representation, warranty or undertaking in respect of the suitability of the Attributes for any purpose whatsoever, including any decisions made or processes (whether automated or otherwise) used by you to enter into, progress, suspend, terminate, reduce or end any agreement, arrangement, relationship, licence or transaction, or to provide any product, service, membership, access or other facility to any person whatsoever, all of which you undertake at your sole risk. Age Verification may be used globally and in many sectors but we do not warrant that Age Verification will be compliant with, or make you compliant with, laws or regulations which may be applicable to you.
Availability and functionality of Age Verification
10.3. Yoti will use all commercially reasonable endeavours to ensure that Age Verification is generally accessible and usable by Clients and Users. However, Yoti gives no guarantee as to the availability of Age Verification, or any component of Age Verification, or in relation to the capacity, latency, responsiveness, accuracy or proper operation of Age Verification. If Yoti becomes aware of any defect affecting the operation of Age Verification, we will take reasonable steps to restore the proper operation of Age Verification in all material respects as soon as reasonably practicable and within Yoti’s available resources, but Yoti gives no guarantees in relation to response times, fix times or otherwise.
10.4. Yoti monitors onboarding experience and wait times by country and document type. For Digital ID, if there is a high number of Users within a certain group (eg document type from a specific country) creating a Yoti app account for your service and you are either (i) not accepting those Users onto your service or (ii) not targeting those Users specifically, then Yoti reserves the right to withdraw support for that group in order to protect other Users’ experience with the Yoti app. If there are a large number of Users using a certain document type that Yoti cannot automate data extraction, and this risk was not agreed with Yoti in advance, then Yoti reserves the right to take mitigating action including deprioritising the checks, withdrawing support for that document and/or (on notice to you) increasing the Transaction Charges payable by you for those Users.
11. General Liability
11.1. Except as expressly stated in this Agreement, Yoti provides Age Verification “as is” and all representations, warranties, undertakings, conditions and other terms which might otherwise be implied into this Agreement are hereby excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. Yoti gives no representation, warranty or undertaking in respect of Age Verification in connection with this Agreement except as expressly set out in this Agreement.

11.5. The parties both agree that the above limitations and exclusions of liability reflect the commercially agreed allocation of risk between the parties for Age Verification, taking into account the fees, and that the above limitations and exclusions of liability are reasonable and proportionate.
11.6.

12. Force majeure
Yoti shall not be in breach of the Agreement nor liable for any delay in performing, or failure to perform, any of its obligations under the Agreement where such delay or failure results from events, circumstances or causes beyond its reasonable control including but not limited to failure of the internet, power outages, failure of third party networks, failure of AWS or Azure, industrial actions (but not industry action affecting Yoti staff), war, pandemics, civil unrest and terrorist activity. Yoti may take mitigating measures to reduce the impact of a force majeure event.

Each party shall, for the duration of this Agreement and thereafter, keep confidential all information of a confidential nature (including pricing, trade secrets and information of commercial value) which may become known to such party and which relates to or is owned by the other party or any of its Affiliates. Neither party shall use the other party’s confidential information for its own purposes (other than implementation of this Agreement) nor, without the prior written consent of the other, disclose it to any third party (except its professional advisors or as may be required by any law or any legal or regulatory authority). The foregoing obligations shall not apply (or shall cease to apply) if that information: (a) is public knowledge or already known to such party at the time of disclosure; or (b) subsequently becomes public knowledge other than by breach of this Agreement; or (c) subsequently comes lawfully into the possession of such party from a third party. Each party shall use its reasonable endeavours to prevent the unauthorised disclosure of any confidential information.

Neither party has relied on any prior agreement, document or representation (including innocent and negligent misrepresentations) in entering into this Agreement.

If the Client’s configuration of Age Verification requires that Yoti make available to the Client the Experian Services, then the Supplemental Terms in the table below shall apply to the Client’s use of Age Verification:
Nature of the Experian Services
1. Nature of the Experian Services
1.1. The Experian Services are not intended to be used as the sole basis for any business decision, and are based upon data which is provided by third parties, the accuracy and/or completeness of which it would not be possible and/or economically viable for Experian to guarantee. The Experian Services also involve models and techniques based on statistical analysis, probability and predictive behaviour. Experian is therefore not able to accept any liability, other than that it will use its reasonable skill and care in performing the Experian Services, for:
1.1.1. any inaccuracy, incompleteness or other error in the Experian Data which arises as a result of data provided to Experian by Yoti, the Client or any third party;
1.1.2. any failure of the Experian Services to achieve any particular result for the Client.
Licence and Use
2. Licence and Use
2.1. Yoti grants the Client a non-exclusive licence to use any Experian Materials provided to the Client as part of the Client’s use of the Experian Services. The licence granted under this clause is made separately in respect of each individual element of the Experian Materials and commences on the day that each such element of Experian Materials is first made available to the Client.
2.2. The Licence granted under clause 2.1 will automatically expire on termination of this Agreement for any reason, except if Experian terminates its licence with Yoti, upon which time this licence will terminate immediately.
2.3. The Client agrees that it will:
2.3.1. use the Experian Services and Experian Materials for the purpose of using Age Verification only and in accordance with any Documentation;
2.3.2. except as expressly permitted in clause 2.1, not sell, transfer, sub-license, distribute, commercially exploit or otherwise make available to, or use for the benefit of, any third party any of the Experian Services or Experian Materials;
2.3.3 not (and will not allow the User or any third party to) adapt, alter, modify, reverse engineer, de compile or otherwise interfere with the Experian Materials without the prior written consent of Experian or as otherwise permitted by law;
2.4. only take such copies of the Experian Materials as are reasonably required for the use of the Experian Materials in accordance with this Agreement.
Intellectual Property Rights
3. Intellectual Property Rights
3.1. All Intellectual Property Rights in the Experian Services, Experian Materials and the Derivative Output will remain vested in Experian (or its relevant licensors) and to the extent that any rights in such materials and data vest in the Client by operation of law, the Client hereby assigns such rights to Experian.
