When using the DataZoo API to verify individuals, you will encounter a response containing the fields "addressElement" such as Below:

"verifications": {
                "addressElement1": true,
                "addressElement3": true,
                "addressElement4": true,
                "addressElement5": true,
                "dateOfBirth": true,
                "email": true,
                "firstName": true,
                "lastName": true
            },


addressElement is mapped to a section of an individual's address such as their street name or city and it  Will return a value of either "True" or "False" if the information provided it matches that at its data source.

Since different countries and jurisdictions contain slightly different systems for mapping address the address elements between different data sources are mapped to slightly different fields of information.

A note about addressElement1 and address Element2: In most cases the entire street address (e.g 123 Example Lane) Can be put into addressElement1 when doing an API Call and is recommended,  For ease of data entry on our Web product IDU We split the street level address to be Number (addressElement1, 123) + Name (addressElement2, Example Lane) both these fields combine at a request time, i.e addressElement1 : 123 Example Lane and addressElement1: 123, addressElement2: Example lane are both interpreted as the same request. Datasources that do this are marked with (Combines with 1) below.
