Our Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Policy reflects our dedication to preventing and combating illicit financial activities, ensuring a transparent and trustworthy gaming environment. Your cooperation with the guidelines outlined in this policy is crucial in maintaining the integrity of our platform.
Introduction to AML Policy
The primary purpose of Betwhale’s AML Policy is to detect and prevent activities associated with money laundering, terrorism financing, and other financial crimes. This policy aligns with international AML standards and legal requirements in the jurisdictions where Betwhale operates.
Betwhale is committed to complying with global AML regulations and collaborating with relevant authorities to combat financial crimes. This policy establishes a robust framework to identify, assess, and mitigate the risks associated with money laundering.
Risk Assessment and Due Diligence
Customer Due Diligence (CDD)
Betwhale conducts thorough Customer Due Diligence as an integral part of our AML program. This involves collecting and verifying customer information, including identity, address, and source of funds.
Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD)
In cases where higher risks are identified, Betwhale implements Enhanced Due Diligence measures. This may include additional verification steps and ongoing monitoring of high-risk customers.
Our AML procedures adhere to a risk-based approach, ensuring that due diligence measures are proportionate to the assessed risk level of each customer.
Customer Identification and Verification
During the account registration process, Betwhale collects and verifies customer identities using reliable and independent sources. This includes government-issued identification, passports, and other relevant documents.
Betwhale continuously monitors customer transactions and activities to identify any unusual or suspicious behavior. This ongoing monitoring is crucial in maintaining the integrity of our platform.
