Hunch KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER (KYC) & ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING (AML) POLICY
All online gambling operators are required by law and via the Gambling Commission licence codes and conditions (LCCP) to take steps to help ensure that gambling is fair and open, is not linked to crime, and promotes a safe gambling environment. This includes collecting customer information for age, identity, address, source of funds and source of wealth where necessary.
Our Verification Process
On registration for an account, we will verify your name, address and date of birth. This process will be automatically carried out during the sign-up process. If for any reason the verification check is unsuccessful, we will notify you immediately and we will then need to carry out further checks before you are able to deposit funds into your account and to place bets. In these instances we will request proof of ID from you in the form of a passport, driver’s licence or other recognised government issued document which can be scanned and uploaded for approval.
We may need to request further information from you in order to verify your identity and the source of the funds you are using to place bets. This could be in the form of:
- Proof of earnings such as a payslip;
- A bank statement/savings account that clearly shows consistent incoming values from an identifiable source
- A Trust deed clearly showing a consistent entitlement to funds;
- Dated proof of an award/payment made to you;
- Other clear evidence that would support "affordability" in relation to your Betting activity with us
How will we use this information?
Why do we ask for this information?
All betting and gaming operators licensed by the Gambling Commission are required by law to conduct Know Your Customer checks which must, as a minimum, verify your name, address and date of birth prior to allowing you to gamble. The information we request not only satisfies our regulatory commitments but also protects our users from fraud, identity theft and underage gambling.
What if I don’t give you the information/documentation?
If you refuse or fail to provide us with the relevant information, or we are unable to make contact with you to request further documentation, your account will be suspended until we are able to obtain this information. If the requested information is not provided your account will remain suspended and will ultimately be closed.
Where can I learn more about the requirements?
We would be happy to provide you with any additional information that you require, simply contact a member of our team for help. Alternatively you can view the requirements via the Gambling Commission’s website at www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk
