Healthcare professionals working in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region need to have undergone a DataFlow verification before they can practice their profession. Outside of the healthcare sector, many other industries have chosen the DataFlow Group as their provider of pre-employment background screening, document verification, and immigration compliance.
Since it’s inception, the DataFlow Group has processed over 1 million verifications. With the introduction of TrueProfile.io, we have ensured that these verifications can be transferred from DataFlow over to TrueProfile.io so that you can securely store your verified credentials on blockchain, making it easy to access, download, and share your documents from anywhere in the world.
The DataFlow Group
The DataFlow Group provides regulators and immigration authorities corporate solutions like Primary Source Verification, immigration compliance, and background screening. We have partnered with authorities and regulators in ensuring that the communities that they represent are protected from applicants with fraudulent qualifications. Professions like those of healthcare workers (i.e. doctors and nurses) have similar qualification requirements across the GCC region that it is possible to transfer a PSV report from one authority to another, subject to some restrictions.
General Data Protection Regulation
Most verifications done in the past were subject to a privacy agreement that fully complied with legal provisions at that time. With the advent of the digital age and the need to define and protect personal information, the European Union drafted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
GDPR and its impact on your report
This means that GDPR restricts the way that a company can use your personal information. For example, you had your PSV report with the DataFlow Group in the past. You agreed to the terms and conditions about us keeping your verification indefinitely and sharing your report with other authorities. With GDPR, we can only store your report for a certain period of time. We might need to delete your data after the prescribed time. This would inconvenience you greatly if you need to transfer your verification to a different authority or employer in the future. Once your information is purged from our system, it means you need to undergo verification again.
TrueProfile.io to the rescue
Thankfully, you do not need to go to these lengths. All you need to do to preserve your verification is to sign up with TrueProfile.io. It will transfer your DataFlow Report to the TrueProfile.io database, in compliance with the new privacy laws. Transferring your PSV report is very easy. And it’s completely free of charge.
