Policy on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing and Know Your Client Policy

Effective Date: 01.07.2021

WMStream’s Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorist Financing and Know Your Customer Policy (the “AML/KYC Policy”) is designed to prevent and mitigate the potential risks of WMStream becoming involved in any type of illegal activity.

Money laundering is defined as:

1. The conversion or transfer of property derived from criminal activity, or property received in lieu of such property, knowing that such property is derived from criminal activity or the act of engaging in such activity, for the purpose of concealing or disguising the illegal origin of the property or assisting any person involved in such activity to evade the legal consequences of that person’s actions;
2. Acquiring, possessing, or using property derived from criminal activity or property obtained in lieu of such property, knowing at the time of receipt that such property was derived from criminal activity or from an act of participation therein;
3. Concealing or disguising the true nature, source, location, disposition, movement, rights with respect to or possession of property derived from criminal activity or property received in lieu of such property, knowing that such property was derived from criminal activity or from an act of participation in such activity.
Money laundering also means participating in, associating with, attempting to commit and aiding, abetting, facilitating and counselling the commission of any of the aforementioned acts.

Terrorism financing is defined as financing and supporting an act of terrorism and its commission, as well as financing and supporting travel for the purpose of terrorism.
International and local laws and regulations require WMStream 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 the event of any form of suspicious activity by its Users.

Monitoring, Risk Assessment and Risk-Based Approach
WMStream monitors customer transactions, assesses risks and identifies suspicious activity. It uses a specially designed system for this purpose, including the use of a high-performance tool.
WMStream uses a risk-based approach to combat/prevent money laundering and/or terrorist financing.
To determine the level of anti-money laundering, countering the financing of terrorism (hereinafter AML/CFT) due diligence to be exercised in relation to a client, a compliance risk profile (Low, Medium, High) is first calculated upon entry into the relationship and then recalculated on a regular basis.
AML/CFT compliance ensures that transactions are continuously monitored to identify unusual or suspicious transactions compared to the customer profile.
The determination of the unusual nature of one or more transactions depends primarily on a subjective assessment regarding customer knowledge (KYC), financial behavior, and the counterparty to the transaction.
If an Application is inconsistent with a customer’s known personal routine or personal habits, that Application may be deemed suspicious. Data and transaction monitoring tools are used to identify unusual/unusual patterns of client activity.
All records are retained for at least (5) years and are available upon formal request by an authorized examiner, regulator or law enforcement agency.

Verification Procedures.

In order to prevent terrorist financing and money laundering, the Law requires all financial institutions and platforms/services to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each individual or entity when registering on the Service Site. WMStream Service is required by law to ask the User to provide their name, address, date of birth and other information about them that will allow the Service to identify the User. The WMStream Service may also ask the User to provide certain identification documents, such as the User’s driver’s license, and may obtain credit history and other consumer reports, for the purpose of verifying the User’s identity and determining whether the User meets the Service’s eligibility criteria. If a User fails to provide the requested information and documentation, WMStream Service will not be able to provide its Services.
By applying for registration on the WMStream Service Website, the User agrees to provide the information and documentation requested by the WMStream Service, and agrees for the WMStream Service to obtain credit history and other consumer reports about the User for the purposes described above.
WMStream Service’s customer due diligence procedure requires that Users provide WMStream with valid, independent source documents to identify them and to verify their residential address. Such documents may include, for example, a national ID card, passport, bank statement, and utility bill. For these purposes, WMStream reserves the right to collect Users’ identifying information for purposes of complying with this Policy.
WMStream Service will take steps to verify the authenticity of documents and information provided by Users. WMStream will also verify identifying information through secondary sources, and WMStream reserves the right to further investigate instances where Users are not satisfied with the documentation provided.
WMStream reserves the right to monitor User data on an ongoing basis, especially when User identification information has been changed or their activity appears suspicious (unusual for a particular User). In addition, WMStream reserves the right to request up-to-date documents from Users, even if they have been authenticated in the past.
User identification information will be collected, stored, shared, and protected strictly in accordance with WMStream’s Privacy Policy and related regulations. User agrees that if any information provided in the registration application changes, ceases to be true or becomes materially misleading) – in which case User will notify WMStream of such changes.
After confirming the User’s identity, WMStream may refuse to provide Services to a User in a situation where it suspects that WMStream Services are being used to conduct illegal activity.
WMStream has a regulatory requirement to verify the source of fiat money and/or cryptocurrency in order to know that the sources of funds that Users use to trade are legitimate.
Users who intend to use payment cards for the purpose of consuming services must complete card verification in accordance with the instructions available on WMStream’s website.
WMStream uses independent third parties for the following purposes:

– verifying Users against lists of politically exposed persons (PEPs) and sanctions lists;
– evaluating User’s cryptocurrency wallets for investigation and AML compliance.
Responsible Officer

A Responsible Officer is a person who has been duly authorized by WMStream and whose responsibility it is to ensure effective implementation and enforcement of the Policy. The duty of such Responsible Official is to oversee all aspects of WMStream’s anti-money laundering and counterterrorist financing activities, including, but not limited to, the following methods:

– Collecting user identification information;
– Establishing and updating internal policies and procedures for completing, reviewing, submitting and maintaining all reports and records required by applicable laws and regulations;
– monitoring transactions and investigating any significant deviations from normal activity;
– implementing a records management system to appropriately store and retrieve documents, files, forms, and logs, regularly updating the risk assessment system, and providing law enforcement agencies with the information required by applicable laws and regulations.
The Responsible Official is the point of contact for WMStream when interacting with law enforcement agencies to prevent money laundering, terrorist financing, and other illegal activities.

Transaction Monitoring.

WMStream Users must go through WMStream’s identity verification process before trading. Once verification is completed, the User consents to Transaction Monitoring, and WMStream analyzes the User’s transaction patterns (what they do).
WMStream relies on data analysis as risk assessment and suspicious activity detection tools. These tools perform many compliance-related tasks, including data collection, filtering, record keeping, investigation management, and reporting.
Under the Policy, WMStream will:
– Monitor all transactions. WMStream reserves the right to ensure that suspicious transaction reports are forwarded to the appropriate law enforcement authorities through the Responsible Official;
– request any additional information and documents from the User in case of suspicious transactions;
– Suspend or terminate a User’s account if WMStream has reasonable suspicion that such User is engaging in illegal activity.
That said, the above list is not exhaustive, and the Responsible Officer will monitor Users’ transactions on a daily basis to determine whether such transactions should be reported and treated as suspicious or should be treated as bona fide.

Risk Assessment

To meet its anti-money laundering (AML) and counterterrorist financing (CTF) obligations, WMStream conducts an annual AML risk assessment. The purpose of the AML risk assessment is to prevent criminals from using WMStream to launder money by highlighting risks and evaluating the controls established by WMStream. The risk-based approach is used to identify Users and track how they use our Services.
The Responsible Officer is responsible for managing financial crime risks and making improvements in financial crime risk management by identifying the general and specific money laundering risks that WMStream faces, determining how those risks are mitigated by WMStream’s AML controls, and determining the residual risk that remains with WMStream.
