What is the difference between a NORMAL barcode and a product with my codes?
A normal barcode generally saves only the product information, which results from the international article number. Previously known as EAN-code, nowadays according to the GS1 standard. However, the product gets no history and the codes are not stored and maintained by an independent place. MY CODES accepts this task to ensure the history of each product. Only the partner producers receive our code and can use it to equip their products. MY CODES log the entire course with a product and makes this information available to the customer, the manufacturer and authorized institution. At the moment of sale to a certified body with POS interface, the history of the MY-CODES ends. This MY-CODE can be registered optionally to carry on the history in your own account and in the second-hand sale to create evidence for the originality of the product.
How can I BE SURE THAT A PRODUCT is original, if the bar code could be copied simply AND mounted on a counterfeited product?
The fact is that a product with the MY-CODE is provided with an intelligent algorithm based system. Our app uses the latest techniques and appeals for the authenticity test on a number of facts. For example the barcode is copied and conflicting information such as the registered item and location of the consumer which can be possible that the product can not be authenticated. So you can be confident that the information which are given by the MY-CODES app is accurate.
