Our verification system design and ongoing development efforts are aimed at achieving a balance between assisting parents in the overwhelming task of protecting their children from age sensitive content, products and services, while preserving reasonable access to those of legal age.

Veratad Technologies LLC, a world class provider of Age and Identity Verification Solutions, announced today that it has been selected as a fact witness by the United States Department of Justice to present testimony on the effectiveness of online age verification in the ongoing ACLU challenge to the constitutionality of the Child Online Protection Act (COPA).

Veratad is expected to testify sometime in November 2006 as part of the Government’s effort to show how online age verification can be a highly effective tool in restricting underage access to adult content on the Web. Veratad’s IDresponse Privacy Processing Platform has been providing responsible Age and Identity Verification Services that protect children from online age sensitive content since early in 2003.

Veratad’s AgeMatch and IDMatch verification products can identify a user online with as little information as a name and address. “Our verification system design and ongoing development efforts are aimed at achieving a balance between assisting parents in the overwhelming task of protecting their children from age sensitive content, products and services, while preserving reasonable access to those of legal age.” says Pattie Dillon President of Veratad.

“The US Department of Justice has chosen us to testify in this case because we possess the necessary experience, technology and skill to offer an effective Age Verification Service and we fully expect to demonstrate how our Online Age and Identity Verification Technology will help keep kids safe online. Certainly we consider this to be one more affirmation of Veratad’s leadership role in Age and ID Verification.” says Managing Director John Ahrens.

Veratad Services can be deployed through a web interface, batch process or the service may be easily integrated into existing web sites. A preloaded turn-key solution in an ecommerce shopping cart is also available for those businesses that would like an off-the-shelf ecommerce solution.
