How is my personal information protected?
When we ask you for information that can be used to identify you (for example your name, date of birth, address and suchlike) we encrypt the data you give us using a secure connection, which prevents it from being intercepted by a third party. The simplest way to tell if you have a secure connection is to look at your browser address bar; if the page is secure the URL will change from ‘http:’ to ‘https:’ and, depending on the browser you’re using, you may also see a locked padlock symbol.
13
Why does Remit require me to provide a copy of my ID?
We require an identification document for the security of our customers and to comply with regulatory rules. Upon signup, we will ask you to provide your home address, your mobile phone number, your Date of Birth, and your identification document number. You will only need to provide this information once and your information is secure.
