PlasmaPay services are provided by Plasma Alliance OÜ, an Estonia entity. Plasma Alliance OÜ is not a regulated financial services provider.

You acknowledge and agree that by clicking the “I agree” button or similar buttons or links as may be designated by PlasmaPay to show Your approval of any foregoing texts, the use of the Services (as defined below), you are entering into a legally binding contract. You hereby agree to the use of electronic communication in order to enter into contracts, place orders and other records and to the electronic delivery of notices, policies and records of transactions initiated or completed through our websites and platforms. Furthermore, you hereby waive any rights or requirements under any laws or regulations in any jurisdiction which require an original (non-electronic) signature or delivery or retention of non-electronic records, to the extent permitted under applicable mandatory law.
Your PlasmaPay account (“PlasmaPay Account”) encompasses the following basic PlasmaPay services: one or more Digital Currency wallets that allow users to store certain supported digital currencies, like Bitcoin, Litecoin or Ethereum (“Digital Currency”), and to track, transfer, and manage their supported Digital Currencies (the “Digital Currency Wallet”); Digital Currency conversion services through which users can buy and sell supported Digital Currencies in transactions with PlasmaPay (the “Exchange Services”); and a Fiat Currency (e.g. USD, EUR, RUB) account for use in connection with other PlasmaPay Services (a “Currency Wallet”) and for eligible users, a Digital Currency exchange service (collectively the “Plasma Pay Services”).
The risk of loss in trading or holding Digital Currency can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether trading or holding Digital Currency is suitable for your financial condition.
In order to use any of the PlasmaPay Services, you must first register by providing your full name, E-mail address, password, and affirming your acceptance of this Agreement. PlasmaPay may, in our sole discretion, refuse to allow you to establish a PlasmaPay Account or limit the number of PlasmaPay Accounts that a single user may establish and maintain at any time.
In order to use certain features of the PlasmaPay Services, including certain transfers of Digital Currency and/or government-issued currency (“Fiat Currency”), you will be required to provide PlasmaPay with certain personal information, including, but not limited to, your full name, address, phone number, E-mail address, date of birth, taxpayer identification number, government identification number, and information regarding your bank account (e.g., financial institution, account type, routing number, and account number). In submitting this or any other personal information as may be required, you verify that the information is accurate and authentic, and you agree to update PlasmaPay if any information changes.
You hereby authorize PlasmaPay to, directly or through third parties make any inquiries we consider necessary to verify your identity and/or protect against fraud, including to query identity information contained in public reports (e.g., your name, address, past addresses, or date of birth), to query account information associated with your linked bank account (e.g., name or account balance), and to take action we reasonably deem necessary based on the results of such inquiries and reports. You further authorize any and all third parties to which such inquiries or requests may be directed to fully respond to such inquiries or requests.
The Digital Currency Wallet services allow you to deposit, withdrawal and store supported Digital Currency to instructions you provide through the PlasmaPay Site (each such transaction is a “Digital Currency Transaction”).
PlasmaPay reserves the right to refuse to process or to cancel any pending Digital Currency Transaction as required by law or in response to a subpoena, court order, or other binding government order or to enforce transaction limits PlasmaPay cannot reverse a Digital Currency Transaction which has been broadcast to a Digital Currency network. The Digital Currency Wallet services are available only in connection with those Digital Currencies that PlasmaPay, in its sole discretion, decides to support. The Digital Currencies that PlasmaPay supports may change from time to time. If you have any questions about which Digital Currencies PlasmaPay currently supports, please visit support (online chat). Under no circumstances should you attempt to use your Digital Currency Wallet services to store, deposit, or withdrawal digital currencies in any form that are not supported by PlasmaPay. PlasmaPay assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with any attempt to use PlasmaPay Services for digital currencies that PlasmaPay does not support.
PlasmaPay processes supported Digital Currency according to the instructions received from its users and we do not guarantee the identity of any user, or other parties. You should verify all transaction information prior to submitting instructions to PlasmaPay. Once submitted to a Digital Currency network, a Digital Currency Transaction will be unconfirmed for a period of time pending sufficient confirmation of the transaction by the Digital Currency network. A transaction is not complete while it is in a pending state. Funds associated with transactions that are in a pending state will be designated accordingly, and will not be included in your PlasmaPay Account balance or be available to conduct transactions. PlasmaPay may charge network fees (miner fees) to process a Digital Currency transaction on your behalf. PlasmaPay will calculate the network fee in its discretion, although PlasmaPay will always notify you of the network fee at or before the time you authorize the transaction.
PlasmaPay securely stores Digital Currency Hot Wallets’ private keys in our control in a combination of online and offline storage. As a result, it may be necessary for PlasmaPay to retrieve certain information from offline storage in order to facilitate a Digital Currency Transaction in accordance with your instructions, which may delay the initiation or credit of such Digital Currency Transaction for 48 hours or more. You acknowledge and agree that a Digital Currency Transaction facilitated by PlasmaPay may be delayed.
PlasmaPay does not own or control the underlying software protocols which govern the operation of Digital Currencies supported on our platform. In general, the underlying protocols are open source and anyone can use, copy, modify, and distribute them. By using the PlasmaPay platforms, you acknowledge and agree (i) that PlasmaPay is not responsible for operation of the underlying protocols and that PlasmaPay makes no guarantee of their functionality, security, or availability; and (ii) that the underlying protocols are subject to sudden changes in operating rules (a/k/b “forks”), and that such forks may materially affect the value, function, and/or even the name of the Digital Currency you store in the PlasmaPay platform. In the event of a fork, you agree that PlasmaPay may temporarily suspend PlasmaPay operations (with or without advance notice to you) and that PlasmaPay may, in its sole discretion, decide whether or not to support (or cease supporting) either branch of the forked protocol entirely. You acknowledge and agree that PlasmaPay assumes absolutely no responsibility whatsoever in respect of an unsupported branch of a forked protocol.
Eligible users in certain jurisdictions may buy or sell supported Digital Currency through the Exchange Services. The Exchange Services are subject to the PlasmaPay “Exchange Rate” for the given transaction. “Exchange Rate” means the price of a given supported Digital Currency amount in terms of Fiat Currency or other Digital Currency as quoted on the PlasmaPay Site. The Exchange Rate is stated either as a “Buy Price” or as a “Sell Price”, which is the price in terms of Fiat Currency or Digital Currency at which you may buy or sell supported Digital Currency to PlasmaPay. You acknowledge that the Buy Price Exchange Rate may not be the same as the Sell Price Exchange Rate at any given time and that PlasmaPay may add a margin or “spread” to the quoted Exchange Rate. You agree, as a condition of using any PlasmaPay Exchange Services, to accept the Exchange Rate as the sole conversion metric. PlasmaPay reserves the right to delay any Exchange Service transaction if it perceives a risk of fraud or illegal activity. PlasmaPay does not guarantee the availability of its Exchange Service, and the act of purchasing supported Digital Currency from PlasmaPay does not result in a guarantee that you may sell your supported Digital Currency to PlasmaPay.
After successfully completing the verification procedures, you may purchase supported Digital Currency by linking a valid payment method. You authorize PlasmaPay to initiate debits from your selected payment method(s) in settlement of purchase transactions. Exchange Fee (defined below) applies to all purchase transactions. Although PlasmaPay will attempt to deliver supported Digital Currency to you as promptly as possible, funds may be debited from your selected payment method before Digital Currency is delivered to your PlasmaPay Account. We will make best efforts to fulfill all transactions, but in the rare circumstance where PlasmaPay cannot fulfill your purchase order, we will notify you and seek your approval to fulfill the purchase order at the contemporaneous Buy Price Exchange Rate. To secure the performance of your obligations under this Agreement, you grant to PlasmaPay a lien on and security interest in and to the balances in your account.
After successfully completing the verification procedures, you may sell supported Digital Currency by linking a valid payment method. You authorize PlasmaPay to debit your PlasmaPay Account(s) and initiate payments to your selected payment method(s) in settlement of sell transactions. An applicable Exchange Fee (defined below) applies to all sale transactions. Your receipt of funds will depend on the payment type and may take up to three or more business days.
Each Exchange Service transaction is subject to a fee (an “Exchange Fee”). The applicable Exchange Fee is displayed to you on the PlasmaPay Site prior to you completing an Exchange Service transaction. PlasmaPay will not process a conversion transaction if the Exchange Fee and any other associated fees, such as wire transfer fees, would exceed the value of your transaction. Payments using other methods not described below, such as wire (if permitted), are subject to different transaction fees disclosed to you before you authorize the transaction. The availability of each Payment Method depends on a number of factors, including but not limited to your location, the identification information you have provided to us, and limitations imposed by third-party payment processors. PlasmaPay reserves the right to adjust its Exchange Fees and any applicable waivers at any time. We will always notify you of the Exchange Fee which applies to your transaction, both at the time of the transaction and in each receipt we issue to you.
You can view the current fee applicable to your location and payment method at our Fees page.
You cannot cancel, reverse, or change any transaction marked as complete or pending. If your payment is not successful or if your payment method has insufficient funds, you authorize PlasmaPay, in its sole discretion, either to cancel the transaction or to debit your other payment methods, including PlasmaPay balances or other linked accounts, in any amount necessary to complete the transaction. You are responsible for maintaining an adequate balance and/or sufficient credit limits in order to avoid overdraft, insufficient funds, or similar fees charged by your payment provider.
PlasmaPay reserves the right to refuse to process, or to cancel or reverse, any purchases or sales of Digital Currency in its sole discretion, even after funds have been debited from your account(s), if PlasmaPay suspects the transaction involves (or has a high risk of involvement in) money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, or any other type of financial crime; in response to a subpoena, court order, or other government order; if PlasmaPay reasonably suspects that the transaction is erroneous; or if PlasmaPay suspects the transaction relates to prohibited use or a prohibited Business as set forth below. In such instances, PlasmaPay will reverse the transaction and we are under no obligation to allow you to reinstate a purchase or sale order at the same price or on the same terms as the canceled transaction.
PlasmaPay may use a third-party payment processor to process any Fiat Currency payment between you and PlasmaPay, including but not limited to payments in relation to your use of the Exchange Service or deposits or withdrawals from your Currency Wallet or PlasmaPay Account.
All registered users may establish and fund only one Currency Wallet to facilitate transactions on the PlasmaPay platform. You are the owner of the balance of your Currency Wallet. PlasmaPay holds the balance of your Currency Wallet in a dedicated custodial account with a financial institution. All funds held in a Currency Wallet are held on trust by PlasmaPay for the benefit of the user, or by a licensed Electronic Money Institution on behalf of the user.
You may initiate a transfer from your linked credit card or the bank account to fund a Currency Wallet. Fees may apply to deposits and withdrawals from your Currency Wallet. All fees will be clearly disclosed in your PlasmaPay account and at Fees page. For deposits, PlasmaPay will credit your Currency Wallet a corresponding amount of Fiat Currency after funds are delivered to PlasmaPay, typically within two to five business days after you authorize a deposit. For withdrawals, PlasmaPay will immediately debit your Currency Wallet when you authorize a withdrawal and funds will typically settle to you within two to five business days. Bank fees are netted out of transfers to or from PlasmaPay. We will not process a transfer if associated bank fees exceed the value of the transfer.

This is a data protection policy adopted by Plasma Alliance OÜ (“PlasmaPay”). The responsibility for the updating and distribution of this policy rests with PlasmaPay Data Protection Officer. This policy is subject to periodic review to ensure that changes to the relevant legislation or the structure or internal PlasmaPay’s policies are reflected in this policy. PlasmaPay’s directors and staff are expected to apply the policy and to seek advice or consultation as appropriate. In the normal course of commercial operations, PlasmaPay needs to collect and retain certain types of personal data (both public & non-public) from a variety of sources including clients, prospective clients, personnel, suppliers, business contacts, financial companies and institutions, and others who PlasmaPay conducts business with. For the purpose of this policy, these will be referred to as (“Data Subjects”).
In addition, to ensure PlasmaPay complies with its regulatory obligations it may be required by law to collect and use certain types of information.
Personal data means data which relates to an individual who can be identified from that data or from that data combined with other information which is in the possession of, or is likely to come into the possession of, the data controller.
All personal data must be dealt with correctly, as provided for by the safeguards in the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), however, it is ascertained, recorded and used. This applies equally whether the data is held electronically, on paper or by other means.
In addition to any legal consideration, PlasmaPay believes the lawful and correct treatment of all personal data (non-public) is an essential step in building and maintaining confidence to everyone concerned including both staff, clients and business associates alike. We confirm that our company treats personal data in a lawful and correct manner.
In light of this PlasmaPay fully endorses and comply with the principles set out below in the GDPR which govern the processing of personal data.
The data protection principles under the GDPR and some examples of practical steps taken by PlasmaPay to help ensure compliance with the principles (by the application of appropriate management structure and strict use of criteria and controls) are set out below.
In particular, processing will not be fair and lawful if the data subject has been deceived or misled as to the purpose or purposes for which their personal data will be processed. PlasmaPay will, therefore, ensure that certain information (“Personal Data”) has been provided to the Data Subjects before processing takes place (i.e. on their data collection forms). This information must include the following:
In addition to providing the Personal Data, to ensure that all processing is fair and lawful PlasmaPay will also ensure that the processing in question can be justified under certain conditions set out under the GDPR. This means that at least one of the following must be met:
In the case of sensitive personal data (i.e. personal data concerning a Data Subject’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, trade union membership, physical or mental health or condition (which will include employee’s health records), sexual life or the commission or alleged commission of any offence or proceedings for any actual or alleged offence, the disposal of such proceedings or the sentence of any court in such proceedings) this may only be collected stored, used, disclosed or otherwise processed if, in addition to the requirements set out above one of the following conditions is met:
To ensure these goals, PlasmaPay adheres to the following standards and rules:
In order to process data in a way which is compatible with the purposes for which it is processed PlasmaPay will periodically review data collection procedures to ensure that they are adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to the purpose for which data is going to be processed; review requests for personal data, to ensure that all data which is supplied is necessary or whether it can be destroyed; periodically review personal data held in manual filing systems and digital filing systems to ensure that PlasmaPay is holding no more than the minimum of data required for the purpose for which the data was collected, and ensure that if employees are allowed to enter free text onto records, training is given to them to ensure its relevance. Personal data shall be accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
PlasmaPay will check that personal data is accurate, complete and current by, for example: keeping a record of the dates on which personal data is created and/or obtained both manually and electronically; assessing the accuracy of the personal data at the time of collection when it comes from sources other than the data subject concerned and, in any case, reviewing the accuracy of personal data before it is entered into any filing systems; ensuring that where personal data is duplicated and held separately (e.g. at a different locations or in a different department) any updates or amendments are communicated to all holders of the personal data and that the personal data is updated/amended accordingly; and checking personal data periodically to ensure that it is accurate and up to date and to evaluate the degree of damage to the Data Subject and PlasmaPay which could be caused through inaccurate or out of date personal data being held. This could be done by putting a procedure in place which provides that when a record is accessed, the individual accessing the file has to sign off that they have briefly reviewed the entire file and removed/amended any inaccurate personal data. Personal data processed for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than necessary for that purpose or those purposes.
PlasmaPay will comply with this principle by reviewing personal data periodically to determine whether retention is justifiably necessary for legitimate business purposes or whether the personal data can be archived or destroyed, and ascertaining whether such personal data could be retained in an anonymous format (e.g. if kept only for historical or statistical purposes).
PlasmaPay will inform Data Subjects of: the obligatory or optional nature of the personal data requested (e.g. optional fields could be marked with a star which indicates that such personal data may be used for future marketing activities; and how Data Subjects can contact PlasmaPay with any inquiries or complaints about the processing of personal data and the choices and the means offered by PlasmaPay for limiting the use and disclosure of personal data.
PlasmaPay has also established suitable procedures to enable an individual to find out whether personal data (of which that individual is the data subject) is being processed by or on behalf of PlasmaPay and if so what such personal data comprises. Such a request by an individual must be in writing and PlasmaPay may be entitled to charge a small fee for responding to such requests. PlasmaPay has trained staff to recognize subject access requests from Data Subjects and to respond to these in accordance with the GDPR and particularly in accordance with the statutory time limits.
PlasmaPay will ensure the rights granted to the people about whom personal data is held are upheld, including such issues as their right to be informed that processing is being undertaken, their rights to access such personal data, and their rights to correct or have deleted personal data that is determined as wrong personal data.
In order to protect personal data stored by PlasmaPay from being lost, misused, accessed without authorisation, disclosed, altered or destroyed, PlasmaPay will, for example: ensure that all necessary technical and structural security measures are undertaken to safeguard personal data; promote awareness of data security among employees and where possible, conduct training in security responsibilities and issues; only authorise individuals to access personal data where they have a business need to do so, where they are reliable and where they have the appropriate knowledge to make decisions concerning how it should be handled (i.e. carry out background checks and conduct training to ensure that individuals understand their responsibilities, particularly surrounding confidential information and special categories of data).
PlasmaPay will also segregate employee duties to ensure that responsibility for sensitive tasks is appropriately controlled, monitor access to personal data to prevent violations, intentional or accidental damage or disclosure, identify potential security risks and exposures within the company and implement appropriate security measures to counter those risks. According to these measures PlasmaPay will: (i) only give employees access to personal data where they are authorized and have a legitimate business need to do so, (ii) maintain a clear desk policy and ensure that: (i) computer servers are set up to optimise security, (ii) all systems passwords/authorization levels etc. are periodically reviewed to ensure that they are assigned to appropriate staff, (iii) where possible, audit trail capabilities of automated systems are used to track who accesses and amends personal data, (iv) implement procedures to stop all employees whose employment has been terminated or transferred who are no longer used, from accessing systems used to process personal data.
PlasmaPay will ensure that the transfer of personal data abroad is only done once suitable safeguards have been made. This will be where either one or several of the following conditions apply:
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions carried out by us or our chosen third-party provider of payment processing services will be encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer technology or a secure virtual private network. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of our app and/or our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our app or our website; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
Certain services may include social networking, chat room or forum features. Ensure when using these features that you do not submit any personal data that you do not want to be seen, collected or used by other users.
To enable PlasmaPay to achieve its objective of compliance with the principles of the GDPR we have appointed a designated Data Protection Officer with specific responsibility for data protection who will act as the central focus for all issues relating to data protection. Data Protection Officer will be responsible for identifying information, implementing appropriate data protection measures to comply with applicable law and maintaining those measures at appropriate levels.
Data Protection Officer has a number of important responsibilities including:
If you have any questions about this privacy notice, including any requests to exercise your legal rights, you can contact Data Protection Officer as follows:

Plasma Alliance OÜ (hereinafter referred as “The Company”) Anti-Money Laundering and Know Your Customer Policy (AML-KCY Policy) is designed to prevent money laundering by meeting the Estonian AML/CFT legislation obligations including the need to have adequate systems and controls to mitigate the risk of being used to promote financial crime. The Company reserves the right to refuse registration to persons from jurisdictions that do not meet international AML-CFT standards.
Money laundering is a process, where money derived from illegal sources are introduced into the legal circulation. The main task of a person involved in the money laundering is a transformation of money into money or other financial instruments to hide as many traces of such illegal operation as possible. The Company takes all possible measures to prevent precedents where any of its customers can use the provided services for similar purposes.
The Company adheres to the following policy in the field of counteracting the legalization of proceeds from crime and the financing of terrorism by taking into account the concerns expressed by regulators of many countries, concerning the potential possibility of using crypto assets for illegal purposes, in particular, for the legalization of proceeds from crime and recognizing complete anonymity in the transactions of money transfers and purchase-sale of crypto assets, which contradicts the interests of its customers.
To monitor compliance with the legislation, the Company develops AML/KYC procedures, which are mandatory for compliance by all employees of the Company and policy-defining interactions with persons who enter into an agreement with the Company and become clients of the Company (hereinafter referred to as the “Customers”).
In order to protect the funds of our Customers and to ensure compliance with the world trade standards the Company works exclusively in accordance with the legislation on combating money laundering, obtained through criminal activity and countering the financing of terrorism and criminal activities:
The Company compliance shall ensure that the Company’s activities comply with international standards of Anti-Money Laundering Policy and all documents provided by the Customers are relevant and comply with the requirements of the law.
All questions concerning this Policy please send to the address: Plasma Alliance OÜ, Harju maakond, Tallinn, Lasnam linnaosa, Peterburi tee 47, 11415.
The goal of this Policy is to comply with relevant legislation and normative legal acts, and demonstrate that the Company takes seriously any attempt to use its services for illegal and unlawful purposes.
Legislation obliges the Company to take the necessary measures to prevent and identify cases of money laundering. The Company, in its turn, makes sure that the internal guidelines, procedures and controls used by competent specialists properly and always comply with the latest requirements and innovations.
The Company applies the verification procedure for all new Customers and can not start business relations until the identification of a new Customer is successfully confirmed.
Regulations require the Company to have:
To comply with the policy of counteracting the legalization and laundering of illegal funds, the Company performs the following:
In case the Company specialists in the course of monitoring will find out that any of the Customers use the Company’s services for money laundering, the company reserves the right to block the Customer’s account and all stored funds until the end of the internal investigation.
The Company also reserves the right to provide this information to the police, the authorized regulator or any other control body without the consent of the Customer.
According to the existing standards and requirements the Company has implemented the following measures:
Based on Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Prevention Act we have to identify and verify any person who enters in a business relationship with us or who has an occasional transaction, including any person acting on their behalf and any beneficial owners.
Identification required for all customers who have registered of an account (personal or corporate) at https://plasmapay.com, regardless of the added (deposit) amount or send (withdrawal) amount available on the balance to a bank account or any other payment system. The identification procedure is a prerequisite for any financial and exchange operations, until completion of the identification procedure, Customer account is unverified and has restrictions for making financial transactions and transfers.
The Customer understands that the name, address, telephone number and any other personal information, including documents (such as passport, national identity card, driving license, bank account statement, telephone bills, electricity bills or other utility bills) must be true and valid on the upload date.
For legal entities:
The verification process is performed once and can be re-initiated only when the Customer’s registration data or documents are changed. After assigning to the Customer “Verified” status, the re-submission of the verification documents is not required.
To prevent compromising of Customer’s personal data, documents uploading and data entry is done through a secure interface in the Customer’s local area (secure log-in) using encrypted protocol.
Under this Policy, any customer who decides to use the services of the Company also agrees to provide identification and verification documents that confirm identity, address and financial status, among them:
For legal entities:
The Company does not accept the following types of documents as proof of address: phone bill (statement), driving license, couriers receipts, documents issued by the pension fund or insurance companies, the invoices from the shops and other companies in the area of trade and service, credit/debit card statements issued by a store or another bank agent.
Corporate customers (legal entities) provide documents certified in established order by themselves or by a notary.
In case if customer wants to make payment using credit and debit cards of international payment systems Visa, MasterCard and others, the Company will require him to pass the card verification process by providing a scan/photo of the front and back sides of the card (for security purposes, it is allowed to partially hide the card number on the front side and validation code CVV2/CVC2 on the backside) or by verifying the payment amount in accordance with the instructions in the personal account.
Copies of supporting documents must be submitted in color, at high resolution (at least 1920×1080), JPEG, JPG, GIF, PDF, max. capacity of each document should not exceed 10 Mb. The Company reserves the right to decline the documents that do not correspond to the above requirements.
According to the existing standards and requirements in anti-money laundering the Company reserves the right at any time to request the customer to present additional documents or any additional information needed for identification.
The Company can freeze (block) the account of any Customer in case of suspicion of fraudulent activity, which may be related to the money laundering, or in case of the customer refuses to provide the requested identification documents.
If the Customer refuses to provide the requested documents and information as a response to a request from the Company without proper justification, the Company will not start a contractual relationship with this Customer, and may also notify this fact to the authorized regulator. This can lead to the suspicion that the Customer is engaged in money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
If the account has been blocked and further investigation and interaction with the Customer cause problems that can not be resolved, the Company can close the account and return all funds from the balance to the source from which they were received.
Extended due diligence is carried out with respect to politically exposed persons, and/or in the presence of the signs specified in the internal Company’s policy and procedures.
If the Company has assessed that the business relationship with the Customer poses a high risk it will apply the following additional measures:
The Company will conduct ongoing Customer due diligence and account monitoring for all business relationships with Customers. It particularly involves regularly reviewing and refreshing Company’s view of what its Customers are doing, the level of risk they pose, and whether anything is inconsistent with information or beliefs previously held about the Customer. It can also include anything that appears to be a material change in the nature or purpose of the Customer’s business relationship with the Company.
The Customer is known not only by verifying their identity (who they are) but, more importantly, by analyzing their transactional patterns (what they do). Therefore, the Company relies on data analysis as a risk-assessment and suspicion detection tool. The Company performs a variety of compliance-related tasks, including capturing data, filtering, record-keeping, investigation management, and reporting. System functionalities include:
With regard to the AML-KYC Policy, the Company will monitor all transactions and it reserves the right to:
The above list is not exhaustive and the Compliance Officer will monitor Customer’s transactions on a day-to-day basis in order to define whether such transactions are to be reported and treated as suspicious or are to be treated as conscientious.
The Company, in line with the international requirements, has adopted a risk-based approach to combating money laundering and terrorist financing. By adopting a risk-based approach, the Company is able to ensure that measures to prevent or mitigate money laundering and terrorist financing are commensurate to the identified risks. This will allow resources to be allocated in the most efficient ways. The principle is that resources should be directed in accordance with priorities so that the greatest risks receive the highest attention.

Since cryptocurrencies markets are decentralized and non-regulated our cryptocurrencies trading services are unregulated services which are not governed by any specific European regulatory framework (including The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive). This means that there is no central bank that can take corrective measure to protect the value of сryptocurrencies in a crisis or issue more currency. Therefore, when PlasmaPay customers are using our cryptocurrencies trading service they will not benefit from the protections available to clients receiving regulated investment services for dispute resolution. PlasmaPay customers will continue to benefit from the rules relating to best execution and client money and safekeeping of client assets.

Such positions shall have the same leverage (if any), stop loss and take profit, to the maximum extent possible. Trades below the minimum trade amount shall not be opened. All such positions shall be modified and/or closed automatically if and when modified/closed by the copied trader, for whatsoever reason, without providing any further notice and without any action on the User’s part.
