    Default check / verify customer's data

    Hi,

    Our customers will give us their personal information.
    Our staff will input customer's data.
    My duty is to make sure that customers' data (which is input by our staff) is correct.

    Question:
    In my sentence, which verb I should use?

    Sentence:
    My duty is to check / verify customer's data in our system.


    Thanks

    If you use "check", my inference would be that you are using a general term that could include verification, whereas the use of "verify" suggests to me the use of a more specific term for the process of assuring the customers' data is correct and has been input correctly.
