About us

PlanetVerify provides companies with a secure, streamlined, and compliant way to collect and manage personal data.

Our Mission

Collecting Personal Data and Documents in a GDPR world is usually cumbersome, inefficient
and insecure. Many use email, routinely loading unknown attachments with all the risks of
viruses/ransomware and then holding this sensitive data in inboxes or sent items indefinitely
with little or no regard to compliance. Others build do-it-yourself web forms taking on the cost, hassle and security/compliance issues themselves, always attempting to stay one step ahead
of data protection law and of course today’s modern hacker.

While in the end, we know that
really… companies just want to
do what they do best –
grow their business

Our history

Founded in 2014 we set ourselves the mission to solve this growing problem for businesses. We put together a fabulous team and since then have invested heavily in the development of an encrypted end-to-end platform that enables our clients to use a simple plug and play automated dashboard. Once signed up, our clients can, within minutes, begin collecting personal data items efficiently from their customers, employees, tenants and all with the peace of mind of knowing it is secure and compliant, providing both a modern and minimum friction experience.
