Safety behind MIQID

DATA SECURITY ACCORDING TO THE WORLD'S HIGHEST STANDARDS

Your data - for us, personal data is personal.

We use the documented standards to secure your data using top-end products from Microsoft and the like, which are the industry standard. But we do not stop our efforts to secure our user data there because the traditional thinking about user data and application of industry standards simply does not.

When a user trusts MIQID with a piece of data, our priority is to make sure we go beyond the norm because we are constantly challenging the norm. At MIQID, we go so far as to remove our own, employees ‘and partners’ ability to view your data and encrypt every piece of personal information, making it unreadable, even for trusted employees with database access. We see this as a final statement in our mission to ensure that your data is personal.

Over time, your personal information becomes more valuable than your time. Think about advertising and how we were previously presented with many different products, some of which were interesting to us, others not.

Knowing the customer is the key in the modern world, and even though you yourself may not see the small information transactions that are when you shop online, visit a web page or show the purchase of a new bag on social media. We unknowingly disclose a large amount of personal information that can be very difficult to withdraw.

MIQID’s mission is to allow the user to decide who displays information when using MIQID as a partner. MIQID stores your data like many other parties on the Internet, but we give you as a user the opportunity to choose which information to display and at what level.

Many people shop online and are a point in a large amount of data exchange. Using MIQID in a webshop allows you to specify what information is given to the webshop, and access to this information can easily be deactivated / withdrawn again with a simple setting in your app.

How is my data encrypted?

MIQID uses a top-secure, high-tech MS SQL database. We use an advanced server technology located in Germany, which is the preferred place to store data.

All data entering the database is specially secured. It is covered by the existing security measures, but is furthermore encrypted, which makes MIQID different from the norm.

Encrypting your personal data in MIQID makes it difficult and nearly impossible to share your personal information between third parties that you are not aware of.

When a user trusts MIQID with personal data, our priority is to ensure that we store your data as securely as possible

How can MIQID be so secure?

Request

The request for profile data from your smartphone is approved

Contact the database

As the request must be allowed to view profile data, the system must contact the database to obtain this

Encrypted data

The database encrypts all personally sensitive data so that unauthorized persons can neither read nor use it. The database contacts the safe, which stores the keys that can unlock data

Returns data

The system has now processed data according to the specific request and returns data to MIQID

Unlocks data

The MIQID database can use the returned key to unlock data and send it back to MIQID

Keys are handed in

The safe approves the database and then hands over the key to unlock data in the MIQID database

MIQ follows all data security rules. Both when they are stored in your MIQID and when you exchange selected data with counterparties - e.g. companies and authorities

Facts about personal data

Personal information can be many things – from social security number, photo ID, fingerprints and medical record to the car’s license plate, shoe size and criminal record. That is, information or a combination of data where it is possible to identify a person. This is called “personally identifiable” data. Most often, it is the combination of several data types that together become sensitive data.

For example, it rarely matters if you enter first name and gender. Few will be able to attribute it to anything specific. But if you say first name and address, it can be immediately attributed to a particular person.

The Data Protection Regulation sets out guidelines for the processing of data and divides personal data into three types:
• Generel information
• Special information categories (sensitive information)
Information on criminal convictions and offenses or related security measures

MIQID uses the same categories for data sharing and follows the Danish Data Protection Agency’s guidelines for how both companies and authorities can access MIQID user data while complying with legislation and security.
