Trulioo, the global identity verification leader, today announced that the Kommission für Jugendmedienschutz (KJM) or the Commission for the Protection of Minors in the Media, has certified its solutions can be implemented in the German market to verify the ages of end users trying to access age-restricted content.
After a robust assessment, the KJM concluded that Trulioo’s identity verification solution complies with both the legal and technical requirements of the Interstate Treaty on the Protection of Minors in the Media (JMStV).
By enforcing age verification checks, it becomes difficult for youth and children to access age-restricted content in telemedia.
“Trulioo’s age verification solution provides a straightforward and seamless user experience for age-appropriate users while ensuring minors don’t engage in potentially harmful content,” said Steve Munford, Trulioo CEO. “By turning to Trulioo’s solutions, media providers and businesses can perform age checks that adhere to compliance measures while upholding a privacy-centric approach in handling this sensitive data.”
Trulioo GlobalGateway provides secure access to reliable data sources to verify a person’s age in real-time.
