  1. Current age verification solutions raise three major concerns:
    • The kinds of publicly available data are indeed not available for minors or are restricted by federal privacy laws.
    • Using schools for confirming the age of minors and for taking the role of digital notary, raises among others, serious privacy concerns and eventually it will also promote marketing or any other kinds of promotional pitches or gimmicks aimed at school age children.
    • Potential abuse by online predators through identity theft.
    There is only one solution that overcomes all above mentioned short falls, that is the state-of the-art Biometric age verification online, provided by “VerificAge” (www.verificage.com):

    • It does not use any kind of data base and therefore, user privacy cannot be jeopardized.
    • It is based on a one time Biometric measurement that can distinguish a child under 14 from an adult in a very high accuracy rate.
    • It can assert age every time the user wishes to access a protected site, interact with a protected party or access age appropriate content.
