Disc Soft Ltd Anti-Money Laundering and Know Your Customer Policy (hereinafter - the “AML/KYC Policy”) is designated to prevent and mitigate possible risks of being involved in any kind of illegal activity.
Both international and local regulations require Disc Soft Ltd to implement effective internal procedures and mechanisms to prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, drug and human trafficking, proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, corruption and bribery and to take action in case of any form of suspicious activity from its Users.
AML/KYC Policy covers the following matters:
One of the international standards for preventing illegal activity is customer due diligence (“CDD”). According to CDD and “Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Guidelines for Banks, Financial Institutions, Credit Unions and Money Transfer Services Providers” by Central Bank of Belize (the Guidelines), Disc Soft Ltd establishes its own verification procedures.
Identification and verification procedures (also known as 'Know Your Customer' or ' KYC') are required for all Transactions, which involve Fiat currency. On its sole discretion Disc Soft Ltd may apply mentioned KYC procedures to Users, who make Transactions exclusively in Cryptocurrency. If the User refuses to provide required documents and information, Disc Soft Ltd reserves the right to immediately terminate Services provision to the User.
According to the Section IV of the Guidelines, Disc Soft Ltd’s identity verification procedure requires the User to provide Disc Soft Ltd with reliable, independent source documents, data or information (e.g., national ID, international passport, bank statement, utility bill). For such purposes Disc Soft Ltd reserves the right to collect User’s identification information for the AML/KYC Policy purposes.
Disc Soft Ltd will take steps to confirm the authenticity of documents and information provided by the Users. All legal methods for double-checking identification information will be used and Disc Soft Ltd reserves the right to investigate certain Users who have been determined to be risky or suspicious.
Disc Soft Ltd reserves the right to verify User’s identity in an ongoing basis, especially when their identification information has been changed or their activity seemed to be suspicious (unusual for the particular User). In addition, Disc Soft Ltd reserves the right to request up-to-date documents from the Users, even though they have passed identity verification in the past.
Once the User’s identity has been verified, Disc Soft Ltd is able to remove itself from potential legal liability in a situation where its Services are used to conduct illegal activity.
The Users who are intended to use payment cards in connection with the Disc Soft Ltd Services have to use third-party credit card payment providers, offered by Disc Soft Ltd. In such case, according to paragraph 4.6.3 of the Guidelines, Disc Soft Ltd is able to remove itself from potential legal liability in a situation where its Services are used to conduct illegal activity.
The Compliance Officer is the person, duly authorized by Disc Soft Ltd, whose duty is to ensure the effective implementation and enforcement of the AML/KYC Policy. It is the Compliance Officer’s responsibility to supervise all aspects of Disc Soft Ltd anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing, including but not limited to:
The Compliance Officer is entitled to interact with law enforcement, which are involved in prevention of money laundering, terrorist financing and other illegal activity.
The Users are known not only by verifying their identity (who they are) but, more importantly, by analyzing their transactional patterns (what they do). Therefore, Disc Soft Ltd relies on data analysis as a risk-assessment and suspicion detection tool. Disc Soft Ltd performs a variety of compliance-related tasks, including capturing data, filtering, record-keeping, investigation management, and reporting. System functionalities include:
With regard to the AML/KYC Policy, Disc Soft Ltd will monitor all transactions and it reserves the right to:
The above list is not exhaustive and the Compliance Officer will monitor Users’ transactions on a day-to-day basis in order to define whether such transactions are to be reported and treated as suspicious or are to be treated as bona fide.
Disc Soft Ltd, in line with the international and local requirements, has adopted a risk-based approach to combating money laundering and terrorist financing. By adopting a risk-based approach, Disc Soft Ltd is able to ensure that measures to prevent or mitigate money laundering and terrorist financing are commensurate to the identified risks. This will allow resources to be allocated in the most efficient ways. The principle is that resources should be directed in accordance with priorities so that the greatest risks receive the highest attention.
