Yes. We have a robust AML and anti-fraud policy and procedures perfected by years of gift card processing. We ensure merchants are verified to control for money laundering and other risks and to meet the Know Your Customer (KYC), anti-money laundering (AML), and the US Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC) requirements. We also have controls in place to track and mitigate any high-risk transaction activity at the user level.

We do not process personal data unless the individual has consented and the processing of such data must be necessary to deliver our services. Our privacy policy includes a privacy notice to customers on data protection.

We process gift card payments which means payment data is closed-loop only, thus outside of the scope of PCI compliance. No customer data is ever entered into, or stored on plugins or other 3rd party servers. Upon checkout, customers are redirected to the payment website and enters their payment information directly into our secure environment so that the web shop never comes into contact with the customers payment data. Once the payment process is complete, customers are redirected back to your store.
