As the operator of digital content marketplaces too, we have a legitimate interest in verifying the identity of our vendors. We believe that knowing who our vendors are will strengthen the integrity of our marketplaces by reducing fraud, making vendors more accountable for their content and giving Agiza Fasta and customers the ability to enforce contracts for vendors who break the rules. Agiza Fasta also has certain legal obligations that require us to know who our vendors are in certain circumstances. In light of this, if you are a vendors we will verify your identity, in particular, your name, full address and your business by asking you to show us a Photo ID document.
