Compliance Levels and Privileges

Effective as of December 16, 2022.


Passes, Inc. (hereinafter, “our”, “we”, “us” or “Passes”) is committed to protecting the privacy and safety of all fans and creators on our platform. We take a number of steps to validate identities and ages of fans and creators on the platform, which correspond to different levels of privileges on Passes. Put simply, the more identification a fan or creator providers, the more tools and privileges they will enjoy.


Our detailed compliance levels and privileges are detailed below:

  3. How do we verify identities?
    • Passes uses Persona for ID verification. Persona is an industry-learning identity verification platform that is safe for all users.
    • What is Persona?
      • When a user applies to become a Creator, they must upload government ID documentation proving their identity. This ID can be:
        • Driver License
        • State ID
        • Passport
        • Passport Card
        • Permanent Resident Card
        • Non-citizen Travel Document
        • Visa
        • Work Permit
      • Creators will then take a selfie on their device so that Persona can match your face to the provided ID. This selfie check helps Persona match faces to their provided ID and make sure that there is a real person making an account (and not a faceless bot).
      • After matching the face to the provided ID, Persona checks government databases to check for fraud. This helps Passes block criminals, sex offenders, duplicate users, and fraudsters from making accounts to harm our platform.
      • All web traffic through Persona is encrypted via HTTPS and TLS 1.2, and their database is encrypted with AES-256 encryption to ensure all users’ information remains private.
