The company demands from its executives, employees and affiliates to follow the principles of this Policy in order to prevent use of its services for the purposes of money laundering.
The Company determines money laundering as the process by means of which true origin and ownership to the revenues obtained from criminal activity are concealed in such a way that they could be used without any suspicion. It may take many forms, including:

– making profit from lucrative crime, such as theft, fraud and evasion of taxes;
– be directly related to any property, money, received by illegal means or connected with terrorist activity;
– investment of revenues obtained from criminal activity into full range of financial products.
The essence of AML and KYC policy includes the necessity to provide the potential clients of the Company with the package of documents containing regulated data on its identity.
This system performs simultaneously several functions. On the one hand, KYC enables the Company:
– to verify identity of the client;
– enables the security service to evaluate the risk of involvement of the client into the illegal activity;

– official personal identification number or other unique identifier, contained in the up-to-date official document (for example, passport, identity card, residence permit, driving license), having the photo of the customer;
– personally signed application.
If the documents of the Client are issued not in English, such documents at the request of the Company shall at first be translated into English by any official translator, and such translated copy shall be duly signed and affixed by this translator and forwarded with other relevant documents and photos of the Client.

During the investigation, the Company reserves the right to require from the Client the copies of the identity cards and bank card used for deposits, payment, as well as other documents, proving the legal ownership and non-criminal origin of the funds.
The Client is prohibited to use services and/or software for any illegal or fraudulent action, or for any illegal or fraudulent transaction (including money laundering) pursuant to the legislation of the state of the jurisdiction of the Client.
