Terms and Conditions for Use of Certificates

Terms and Conditions for Use of Certificates 

  • What do the terms and conditions for the use of certificates mean?

    The terms and conditions for the use of certificates describe the main principles that are followed when issuing and using the certificates of ID cards, residence permit cards, digi IDs and diplomatic identity cards.

  • Why must I agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates?

    Subsection 9 (1) of the Identity Documents Act provides for establishing a list of data to be entered in a document. Consequently, ID cards, residence permit cards, digi IDs and diplomatic identity cards are always issued together with certificates enabling the digital identification of persons and the provision of digital signatures. It is necessary to agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates in order to be aware of one’s rights and obligations when using an electronic identity.

  • What happens if I do not agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates?

    The list of digital data to be entered in an identity document is established by a regulation of the minister responsible for the area. Consequently, ID cards, residence permit cards, digi IDs and diplomatic identity cards are always issued together with certificates enabling the digital identification of persons and the provision of digital signatures. It is obligatory to examine and agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates when applying for a document. If the terms and conditions for the use of certificates are not agreed to, it is not possible to issue the document either.

  • What are the certificates used for?

    ID cards, residence permit cards, digi IDs and diplomatic identity cards have two certificates. The personal identification certificate allows you to log into e‑services and encrypt/decrypt documents. The digital signature certificate allows you to provide in an electronic environment a signature that is equivalent to a hand‑written signature.

  • If I do not wish to use my document electronically, do I still have to agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates?

    It is mandatory to agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates when applying for an ID card, a residence permit card, a digi ID and a diplomatic identity card.

    If a document applicant does not wish to use the certificates, these can be revoked once the document has been issued, i.e. the document will remain valid only as a physical identity document. If the certificates of a digi ID are revoked, the document itself will also become invalid, as it is intended for electronic use only. Revoking the certificates makes it impossible to use the electronic functionality of the document, i.e. to log into e‑services or provide digital signatures. If you wish to use the document electronically at a future time, you need to apply for a new document.

  • What kind of information is contained in the terms and conditions for the use of certificates? What is their essential content?

    The terms and conditions for the use of certificates detail the rights, obligations and responsibilities of both the holders and issuers of certificates.

    It is essential for document holders to be primarily aware of the following:

    1. The document and its PINs may not be given to anybody else.
    2. If the document is lost or might have been used without authorisation, the certificates must be suspended immediately by calling 1777.
    3. Suspended certificates can be reactivated at PBGB service offices.
    4. Certificate holders are obligated to revoke the certificates if there is suspicion that they might have lost control of their document while the certificates were suspended.
    5. If a document is lost or stolen or has become unusable due to another reason, the document holder must notify the PBGB immediately for the document to be declared invalid.
    6. Certificate holders are responsible for the operations conducted using the certificates and for the consequences thereof.
    7. When logging into e‑services, the certificate containing the certificate holder’s name and personal identification code is sent to the service provider.
    8. When providing a digital signature, the certificate containing the certificate holder’s name and personal identification code is appended to the document.

  • When must I agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates?

    You are required to agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates when applying for an ID card, a residence permit card, a digi ID and a diplomatic identity card.

  • Why has it not been necessary to agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates before? Is this a new requirement?

    Previously, people were asked to agree to the terms and conditions for the use of certificates when they collected their document and signed the issuance statement. This is not a new requirement.
