1.What is My ReCheck? Back

My ReCheck is an online service for secure and private exchange of information. It is used to upload, record, store, share and verify information on blockchain or other ledger databases.

2.What data can I protect and store with ReCheck? Back

There are no limits toward what type and format of data you want to store and share, as long as the file size does not exceed 5 MB.

3.Are there any limitations about the size of the files I upload and share with ReCheck? Back

Currently, there is a limitation of 5 MB for file size.

4.What is the cost of using My Recheck? Back

Yes, please contact us to explain how this is organised.

5.How secure is My Recheck? Back

My Re Check utilizes end-to-end cryptography, protocol for anonymisation and masking, along with digital proofs to guarantee maximum privacy in sharing data. Blockchain architecture provides an immutable environment to ensure that digital proofs cannot be altered or deleted. My ReCheck preserves the perfect balance between security, privacy and traceability. Transactions are recorded in a way that only users who did them can verify them using their identities.

6.Can ReCheck read my data? Back

No. No one, even ReCheck can read your personal information, unless you grant exclusive access to another user by sharing the file. In the case of sharing you decrypt the file and encrypt it to the identity of the recipient. The protocol we utilise ensures that encryption happens in the browser and ReCheck as a service provider can’t read your data.

7.Where exactly is my encrypted data stored? Back

On cloud infrastructure and servers provided by Amazon Web Services.

8.How can I track my data with My ReCheck? Back

Digital proofs such as timestamp and fingerprint (hash) helps you track your data on blockchain. When interactions with you data occur (it was shared, signed, decrypted, etc.) then ReCheck records these transactions in an immutable and verifiable environment and you can track them.

9.How can I see the full history of interactions with data in My ReCheck? Back

You need to decrypt a file and click on Details button – then the full history of interactions with the file will be displayed. Also, through an independent verifier, you will be able to track and trace all activities with your files. This means that you do not depend on Re Check to verify the history of your transactions.

10. Do any third parties have access to my identity and personal data? Back

No third parties will have any access to any of your data, including your transactions with data. We record trail hashes on blockchain or other ledger databases in a way that only you can verify the transactions.
