GDPR statement: Trust Elevate does not extract data from databases. Instead, we check for a match against data which a parent has both provided Trust Elevate and authorised the verification of both their parental status and the age band to which their child belongs. Trust Elevate runs the checks against authoritative data sources and generates tokens that detail the strength of the match and the age band the child belongs in, for example, <12 years of age.

Trust Elevate aligns with the GDPR and adheres to the principles of data minimisation, accountability and transparency.
