Our highly experienced team has a great understanding of client identity and due diligence requirements
We have a great understanding of licensing and regulatory compliance across multiple jurisdictions, along with a strong foundation in client due diligence, anti-money laundering, risk and data protection.
If an operator registers players in the Isle of Man, then the business requires an Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission Online Gambling Regulation Act (OGRA) licence.
Where an operator collects and stores personal data (such as name, age, address, username, password – in effect any information which could be used to identify a living person) for the purposes of gambling it requires a licence. Our advisers will help draft and implement processes for you to collect customer identity and due diligence for purposes of registering them in a compliant manner.
Identity and Due Diligence | What we do
We will work with you to ensure that results of your Know Your Customer/Customer Due Diligence checks performed by you as the operator are available to the Commission upon request.
In addition, our employment team will draft recruitment processes and screening policies for ‘appropriate staff’. These are designed to check the integrity of your employees before exposure to any player funds or personal information. Appropriate staff are defined as those who can directly participate in the running or support of the operation or in its management and direction. The Inspectorate will want to know that these processes and policies are in place and will review them from time to time.
