CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) Compliance

    The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a bill that enhances privacy rights and consumer protection for residents of California, United States. The bill was passed by the California State Legislature and signed into law by Jerry Brown, Governor of California, on June 28, 2018, to amend Part 4 of Division 3 of the California Civil Code.

    Veryfi Complies with CCPA

    At Veryfi we believe that data privacy and your security should be a human right. Therefore;

    • Any personal data collected by Veryfi is only what you enter into Veryfi. This includes the receipt, invoice and bills you upload into Veryfi for data extraction, labelling and categorization. You can delete this data using the Veryfi web or mobile apps anytime.
    • Your personal is NEVER sold or disclosed to anyone. Veryfi makes revenue from a subscription service and we will continue to do so perpetually. This approach allows us to keep the lights on without resorting to turning your data into a revenue source.
    • No one except YOU and those you invite as ADMIN into Veryfi have access to your data.

    We make it easy for you

    At Veryfi we believe the user should have full control of their information. This is why we have built a fully autonomous system that doesn’t rely on people to make important changes to your account.

    Internal Revenue Code Section (IRC §) 7216

    According to the IRS, IRC § 7216 is “a criminal provision enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1971 that prohibits preparers of tax returns from knowingly or recklessly disclosing or using tax return information.” … “A convicted preparer may be fined not more than $1,000 or imprisoned not more than one year or both, for each violation.”

    Technology companies serving CPAs in California not disclosing offshore labor are causing these CPAs to fall out of compliance. If you are an accountant or a bookkeeper please note!
