Frequently Asked Questions

What is considered PII?

Personal Identifiable Information (PII) is any information that can be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. This includes things like name, address, phone number, email address, government ID (e.g., social security number), and other unique identifiers.‍

PII can also include demographic information, such as age, gender, and nationality, as well as certain sensitive information, such as health and financial information

How is PII regulated?

Organizations collecting PII must adhere to the local regulations governing that data. This results in a complex layer of data protection, privacy, compliance, and location requirements that vary from location to location.

How does Basis Theory help enforce compliance with various data privacy laws?

Basis Theory provides the technical safeguards, localized hosting, and access controls needed to satisfy many of the existing data protection, residency, and privacy requirements around the world.

What is de-identified data?

De-identified data ensure PII can no longer be traced back to an individual. This typically involves the removal or masking of names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and other unique identifiers.

De-identified data can be used for research, testing, analysis, and other purposes, as it does not pose the same privacy risks as personally identifiable information. However, it is important to note that de-identified data can sometimes be re-identified, especially if combined with other datasets or sources of information.

Learn more about data masking and its benefits.

How does Basis Theory work with KYC and KYB providers?

While holding bank and personally identifiable information (PII) data creates risks, doing so is typically offset by the level of control it provides when it comes to initiating transfers and handling returns, meeting Know Your Customer (KYC) and Business (KYB) requirements, monitoring for fraud and abuse, and much more.

Securing sensitive data with Basis Theory allows customers to maintain access, control, and downstream functionality of vendors and partners without exposing or storing the information in their systems. Basis Theory's proxy or API services can be used to transform and route bank and PII data with vendors without compromising downstream operations or capabilities.
