What does the "ID Verified" emblem mean?

This means that the member has provided sufficient proof of identity (in the form of a legal photo ID, such as a driver licence or passport) that matches with their private photos. The member has signed the submission stating that the documentation that they have provided to NZPersonals is a true and correct copy of his or her current age & identity. This documentation may occasionally be reviewed by NZPersonals and verification may be revoked if any unusual changes of identity are detected.

Please note: This does not guarantee 100% that the member is who they claim to be. However, we are satisfied with the documentation that has been submitted to us by the member and that member is liable for prosecution as a result of submitting false or misleading documentation to NZPersonals.

Our policy on privacy: We will not share any part of the documentation with any individual or organisation. No other members will see your personal details nor will they be able to view your photo ID, these details are held only for reference purposes. Photo IDs and details submitted by members are not stored on the NZPersonals website, this means that nobody (not even you) will be able to view your submission at any time.

NZPersonals to complies with codes of practice, as per the Privacy Commission's guidelines.

Also note that sex workers are required to supply sufficient ID as proof of age prior to advertising on NZPersonals. This ensures that all sex workers are New Zealand Citizens, and 18 years of age or older.
