GDPR-compliant copy of your ID

Why do we need a copy of your ID?
The translations for this specific client concern highly confidential (anonymous) reports. In order to ensure that these reports are handled in the most secure way possible, everyone who sees their content must be identifiable. 
What is a GDPR-compliant copy of your ID?

You can use the KopieID app to redact any personal data from your ID that an organisation does not need or is not allowed to process. For example, your Citizen Service Number (for NL) or perhaps your photograph or signature. This depends on the organisation and the purpose for which the copy is to be used.

The app also allows you to add a watermark to the copy specifying the purpose for its use and the date. You might like to add a watermark even if you haven’t redacted any personal data. Once you have done this, you can send or print the copy. It is also possible to securely save an edited copy (with redacted personal data) so that you can use it again at a later date.

You can of course also redact personal data and add text manually.

[example of a GDPR-compliant copy}


  • Make sure that your photo cannot be copied.
  • Make sure that your signature is not visible.
  • Make sure that you redact any identification numbers.
  • Use something like a watermark with the date, so that your ID cannot be reused.
