Anti Money Laundering (AML)

What Is Anti Money Laundering?
Anti money laundering refers to a set of laws, regulations, and procedures intended to prevent criminals from disguising illegally obtained funds as legitimate income. Though anti-money-laundering laws cover a relatively limited range of transactions and criminal behaviors, their implications are far-reaching. For example, AML regulations require that banks and other financial institutions that issue credit or allow customers to open deposit accounts follow rules to ensure they are not aiding in money-laundering.
 

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) POLICY &
Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) POLICY
Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) are set
of laws, regulations, and procedures for providing protection to all end users from illegal
activities, maintaining legal and regulatory compliance helping to prevent detect and
investigate fraud, money laundering (illegally obtained funds as legitimate income) and/or
other criminal activities or misuse of services.
The legal bases for this processing are: the performance of a contract between you and
us and/or taking steps, at your request, to enter into such a contract and the legitimate
interests of ours and/or those of third-parties, namely to prevent, detect and investigate
fraud, criminal activity and/or other misuse of the services. In addition to this, the
processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with the legal obligation that
DigiDinar is subjected to, namely in order to comply with anti-money laundering and anti-
terrorist financing laws.
Purpose
Digidinar has implemented this Anti-Money Laundering Policy and Procedures - The
“AML Policy” to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing in relation to its

based compliance standards to prevent money laundering and the financing of terrorism
in relation to the services that they perform for us.

Transaction Reports
We file Suspicious Activity Reports if we suspect or have reason to suspect suspicious
activities have occurred on Digidinar.com. A suspicious transaction is often the one that
is inconsistent with a customer’s known and legitimate business, or personal activities.
Digidinar compliance department will perform transaction monitoring to assist to identify
unusual patterns of customer/user activity. Digidinar Compliance Officer will maintain all
records and review supporting documentations to investigate suspicious activities to
