Protege Global Ecommerce Protects Its Users

Protege Global Ecommerce is a closed-loop system (having a relationship with both the sender and receiver) that allows us to identify suspicious activity more easily than competing systems.

Protege Global Ecommerce's Customer Due Diligence program collects certain identity details at sign-up while remaining relatively frictionless. Once certain thresholds are met, in compliance with relevant market regulation, Protege Global Ecommerce will subject users to additional KYC requirements for identity verification.

Protege Global Ecommerce conducts a global AML/CTF and Sanctions risk assessment consistent with Financial Action Task Force (FATF) guidance to identity, assess, and understand the ML/TF risks Protege Global Ecommerce faces. This is consistent with a risk-based approach (RBA) which impacts global policy decision-making and implementation of program elements
