What is an authorized card user?

The De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) requires Adyen to check that its card users are not sanctioned individuals, and are therefore authorized card users


Therefore, unless in specific use cases, Adyen has to collect the first name, last name, the date of birth and citizenship of the individuals who will find themselves with an Adyen card in hand.


This information will remain treated as sensitive information and treated as such. Adyen will run regular checks to verify that none of the people using its cards are on a publicly available sanctioned list, such as the OFAC list.


Adyen’s Partners are required to update this information if any change in the card usage occurs.
