FAQS Verics
Everything you need to know about your Verics report

What are metadata?

Metadata is data that describes other data or “data about data”, i.e. it describes the content of the files or the information in the files.

Is it possible to check whether the website is well protected by Verics?

No. Verics detects metadata leaks that may be a violation of the RGPD.

But where do you get your personal data from?

Verics analyses the different files and documents contained in the domains and sub-domains of the website, and it is in these that the metadata appear.

I have a document manager who already does this

This does not make him a document manager as he has other tools and functionalities in the field of data protection.

Is there a tool for cleaning personal data from metadata?

Depending on the volume of files affected by the leaks, we must check what is the best way to remove the personal data

Why and how can I use Verics with my customers?

To ensure proper compliance with the Regulation . On the other hand, it is a tool that offers a great differentiation from the competition, which in turn serves as a great commercial strategy, offering your customers a unique tool in the market.

Operational problems: “false” data, reports that are too late.

Verics is a tool that is constantly evolving to adapt to the current needs of data protection, so we prefer to be conservative and cover all results, ensuring greater security.

On the other hand, the time it takes to produce a report depends on two things:

  • Page size
  • Type of tariff the client has, which will make it have one priority or another.

Usage errors: wrongly entered URLs.

So that there are no errors in the analysis of the website, you must bear in mind that the Url accepted must be:

  • http://www,

Few data in the reports you have requested.

This can happen for two reasons:

  • The first of these is that the administrator of the page is very careful and there is no filtering of the files and data it contains.
  • On the other hand, it may be that the content of the page is scarce and therefore the program does not detect enough leaks.

Overpricing of tariffs.

Verics is a unique tool in the market that provides a great differential value to the companies, which is in constant evolution, and that guarantees the fulfillment of the regulations
