Short Answer

This is your unique identifier that will be with you for the rest of your life and it is important that you think carefully about what this might be. A MydexID will equip you for life online, enabling you to exchange information with organisations you choose to, when you choose to, and to manage your digital identity with trust and confidence.

Technical Answer

If you selected Mydex CIC to act as your identity provider for the UK Governments GOV.UK Verify service we would ask for you to share some specific information in order to provide the level of identity assurance the government require. This would only be used as part of the assurance process and it is not retained by us for any other purpose beyond our legal obligations for data retention under the contract with the Government. Again all data shared is under a consistent data sharing agreement that states explicitly what data for what purpose. The individual can at anytime remove their consent for sharing data
