Your privacy is critically important to us. At B2V, we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We are thoughtful about the information that we collect through the operation of our services.
  • We store information for only as long as we have a reason to keep it.
  • We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to keep control over your data.
  • We help protect you from overreaching government demands for your information.
  • We aim for full transparency on how we gather, use, and share information.
  • Below is our Privacy Policy for End Users, which incorporates and clarifies these principles. It is B2V’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our online service,, and other sites we own and operate.

Service Users are those who incorporate our service into their organization's Mutual Authentication and Signature flows.

We will process your information lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner. We collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so.

These legal bases depend on the services you use and how you use them, meaning we collect and use your information only where:
