AML policy

The AML policy aims to identify the client in the event of a use case where the service has suspicions that the client is using Arbuz.io inappropriately. If the service suspects the client of illegal actions that can be qualified as laundering or attempted laundering of digital assets obtained illegally or the funds are of overtly criminal origin. For these purposes, the Service has the right to use any legal information, third-party tools for analyzing the origin of digital assets, as well as its own developments of the screening system.

  • Require the Client to provide additional information disclosing the origin of digital assets and/or confirmation that these assets were not obtained by criminal means;
  • To block the account and any operations related to the Client, to transfer to the controlling financial activities and/or law enforcement agencies at the place of registration of the Service and, if necessary, at the address of the Client's registration, all information and documents available on the incident;
  • Require from the Client documents confirming identity, physical existence, address of registration, solvency;

  • Hold the Client's funds until the incident is fully investigated;
  • The Service reserves the right to monitor the entire chain of transactions in order to identify suspicious transactions;
  • The Service reserves the right to refuse to provide the Service to the Client if the Service has reasonable suspicions of the legitimacy of the origin of digital assets and to withhold funds on special accounts of the Service;
