Frequently asked questions
Up to now, your data has been stored by providers of online services (Facebook and Google are the best known). Up to now, you don’t know what happens to your data and who has access to it. Self-sovereign digital identity is a fairly young concept for storing and organizing your personal information: You are the sole owner of your data. You are free to decide with whom and to what extent you want to share it. Self-sovereign digital identities became technically feasible with the advent of blockchain technology. It allows data to be stored decentrally, tamper-proof and constantly – best suited for a secure digital identity that only you have access to. A services provider, who stores your data and makes it available to you, is not necessary anymore.
helix id is a self-sovereign digital identity solution (SSI). This means that your personal data belongs to you. Every disclosure has to be approved by you beforehand. The information is transmitted following the guidelines of data minimization by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR). With helix id, you’ll receive individual cryptographic keys that encrypt your data directly on your phone. No personal information will be stored onto a blockchain or another publicly accessible system.
Blockchain technology plays a substantial role for helix id. It stores the proofs of your digital identity in a decentralized and tamper-proof way. Picture it as a piece of the puzzle that has been missing to be able to store your personal data as your property. This means that you keep sovereignty over your data and only you decide what happens to your data.
In addition, blockchain technology creates a common basis of trust in the helix id network: Every user of helix id is verified beforehand and accesses the helix id space with his authentic digital identity, which enabled trusting interaction between the participants.
No. The helix id app is free of charge.
We commit ourselves to transparency and openness: On the one hand, we are legally obliged to offer you the best possible protection of your data by the EU GDPR and the right to digital self-determination anchored in the German Federal Data Protection Act.
On the other hand, we are not financing helix id through users but companies that use the services of our solution. The app and all its features will always be free. So you see, we have no interest in passing on your data illegally.
Yes. Enshrined in the GDPR (Article 17), the ‘right to be forgotten’ gives you the right to request that all you personal data be irrevocably deleted.
This right can also be found in the ten guidelines for secure and trustworthy digital identities which is an integral component of helix id.
