The ongoing concerns around data privacy

Data privacy is a pressing concern in today’s digital age, where personal information is constantly shared and stored online. Addressing these concerns becomes even more crucial with the increasing use of facial recognition technology and identity verification systems.

One major worry is the potential misuse or unauthorized access to sensitive data. As financial institutions and organizations collect vast amounts of personal information for fraud detection and compliance purposes, individuals are rightfully concerned about how their data will be protected.

Another concern revolves around consent management. Individuals want assurance that their consent is sought before their data is used. They also expect transparency regarding what type of data will be collected, how long it will be retained, and who will have access to it.

Signzy takes data privacy and compliance seriously. Addressing concerns around data privacy requires a comprehensive approach involving transparency in consent management practices and stringent security protocols. Only then can individuals feel confident in entrusting their personal information to organizations.

The need for transparency when it comes to data privacy

The need for transparency regarding data privacy is of utmost importance in today’s digital age. With the increasing amount of personal information being shared online, individuals and organizations are rightfully concerned about who has access to their data and how it is used.

In the context of facial recognition technology and identity verification, transparency becomes even more crucial. Users want to know that their biometric data is handled securely and responsibly. They want assurance that their face images are not stored or shared without consent.

At Signzy, we understand these concerns and prioritize data privacy above all else. We strive to be transparent with our users by clearly explaining how our Face-Match API works and what measures we have to protect their data.

In addition to encryption, we also implement strict access controls.

This helps prevent any potential misuse or mishandling of sensitive information.

Furthermore, we regularly update and monitor our systems for any vulnerabilities or threats. Our dedicated team monitors and promptly addresses emerging security risks with necessary patches or updates.

KYC for Online Gaming Platforms

Why Mandatory KYC for Online Gaming Platforms?

Mandatory KYC for Online Gaming Platforms – is what the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has drafted amendments to the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021. It states that due to rapid growth in online gamers, mandatory KYC for Online Gaming Platforms & gamers is to guarantee that Gaming Companies adhere to Indian laws and provide users with protection against potential harm.

Gaming has become a part of everyday life for many people, from casual mobile games to more hardcore console and PC gaming. As the popularity of gaming continues to grow, so does the importance of having an appropriate level of safety and security for gamers.

In this blog post, let’s explore what this proposal entails and why it is important. We will also discuss how it may affect both casual and professional gamers.

What is the government proposing for Online Gaming Platforms?

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) proposed an amendment to bring online gaming under the ambit of the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021

The amendments seek to ensure due diligence from online gaming intermediaries so that users are not exposed to any activities breaching Indian law – such as gambling or betting – and also require a registration mark on all online games registered by self-regulatory bodies.

The Draft Rules

  1. A gamer must be informed of all online games offered by the gaming intermediary, as well as its policy regarding withdrawals and refunds of deposits made with the expectation of winnings. Also, how winnings will be determined and distributed, as well as the fees the user will have to pay for each game. 
  2. There should be a mandatory know-your-customer norm for verification (KYC).
  3. A user will need to be aware of the potential for addiction and the financial risks associated with each game.
  4. As part of the registration process of the game, the self-regulatory body must set up criteria for its content to protect the gamer from harm, including self-harm.
  5. Only games that are approved by the self-regulatory body will be permitted to operate legally in India.
  6. Five members will create the self-regulatory body’s board of directors, with expertise in online gaming, public policy, IT, psychology, and medicine.
  7. It is responsible for ensuring that the registered games do not contain anything that is not in the interest of India’s sovereignty, integrity, defense, security, friendly relations with foreign countries, or public order or that incites a cognizable offense.
  8. The Centre should be informed about the online games registered by all self-regulatory bodies, along with a report detailing the criteria for registering a particular game.

Why is there a need for such rules?

It is for protecting users from potential harm caused by skill-based games. 

  1. Innovation: As online gaming platforms are getting regulated as intermediaries and are subject to due diligence requirements, the online gaming sector will be promoted and innovation will be encouraged.
  2. Women Gamers Safety: Approximately 40 to 45% of Indian gamers are women, which makes keeping the gaming ecosystem safe all the more important.
  3. Because they generate revenue that needs proper regulation: In 2025, the Indian mobile gaming industry is to generate $5 billion in revenue. The industry grew at a CAGR of 38 percent between 2017 and 2020, versus 8% in China and 10% in the US.
  4. Credibility & Transparency: In addition to ensuring greater transparency, consumer protection, and investor confidence, this framework will boost the legitimate domestic online gaming industry.

What are the pros of KYC for Online Gaming Platforms?

The proposed mandatory KYC for Online Gaming Platforms has generated a lot of debate, with some people arguing that it is a necessary step to prevent underage gaming and others asserting that it will infringe on the privacy of gamers. Here, we take a look at the pros of the proposed policy: 

1) It would help to prevent underage gaming & Fraud: The proposed policy would require online gamers to verify their age before being able to play, which would help to prevent minors from accessing age-inappropriate content.

2) It could help combat cheating: By mandating age verification, it would become more difficult for people to create multiple accounts to cheat in online games.

3) It would promote responsible gaming: Making online gamers verify their age would encourage them to play responsibly and not engage in excessive gaming.

Our take

The government’s proposing mandatory KYC for Online Gaming Platforms & gamers is a step in the right direction toward protecting citizens from online threats and fraud. With the implementation of this measure, users can be assured that their identities are secure when engaging with other players or playing games online. It will also help prevent illegal activities such as money laundering and identity theft which have been particularly rampant on gaming websites lately. In essence, this proposed measure could be immensely beneficial for both players and regulatory authorities alike by promoting safety and security in the digital world.
