We offer a service called AML which assists users to comply with anti-money laundering regulations, or otherwise prevent or detect crime such as money laundering, fraud and theft.

We use this information to determine the level of risk of that person being involved with illegal activities or their commission or alleged commission any offence.

We inform all of our users of this risk level. Users can then deal with that person as they wish, having regard to that person’s risk level.

If it is determined that a person’s risk level is high, that person may be denied access to certain services. In extreme cases, information relating to that person may be disclosed to law enforcement agencies or other agencies which seek to prevent or implement anti-money laundering measures.
