What is greytHR PIVault?    

greytHR PIVault is an advanced security solution that prevents data from unauthorized access. It stores all your SPII data in a dedicated storage facility and uses a multi-layered encryption system to protect them.

Does greytHR PIVault support all types of SPII data?

At this moment, it is only for Aadhaar data. But, going forward, we will make provisions to include every other SPII data. 

As a customer, do I need to take any action?

There is nothing required from your end. When the feature is rolled out, it will be available to you by default.

What happens to my existing data?

Your existing data will be safely migrated to greytHR PIVault's secure database.

What if I don’t want to migrate my existing data?

All the agencies that store Aadhaar numbers in a structured and electronic form such as a Database need to implement Aadhaar Data Vault. 

UIDAI has put out a FAQ document about Aadhar Vault on their website. FAQ #4 categorically says that "All agencies which store Aadhaar number are required to create an Aadhaar data vault". These agencies may or may not be AUAs/KUAs/Sub-AUAs, but could be an organization that stores Aadhaar numbers for internal identification purposes such as attendance management, linking with PF etc. 

Will the data remain hidden/ masked in query builder reports?

The Aadhaar data generated via query builder will be masked, and hence, the Aadhaar information will remain hidden to the user.

What if I don't adhere to the norms?

Companies failing to comply with the Aadhaar Act may be liable to pay up to Rs 1 crore in fines. 

Can I download the Aadhaar data for internal purposes? 

You can download the Aadhaar data. However, as per the Aadhaar Act, the data will be masked to protect the identity of the individuals.

Can I store the Aadhaar numbers in our internal files?

As per the norms set by the Aadhaar Act, it is an offence to store the Aadhaar data anywhere apart from the Aadhaar vault.

Is greytHR PIVault a paid upgrade?

No, it is completely a free upgrade. If you are an existing customer, your Aadhaar data will get automatically migrated to greytHR PIVault's secure database once the feature is rolled out.
