In order to comply with international anti-money laundering regulations we are obliged to verify the correctness of the personal details saved for your account, particularly your full name, date of birth and residential address.
To make this process as convenient as possible we will attempt to match your details against electoral rolls, credit reference databases such as SCHUFA in German or Experian in the UK or similar. Please note that we never query your creditworthiness but only use such sources to verify the personal details mentioned above. Also, the fact that this search was done will neither be disclosed to any third party querying your creditworthiness in the future nor does it have any influence on your credit score.
If you are residing in a country other than Germany or the UK, or if we conduct further verification, we will ask you to provide us with copies of certain documents in order to verify your personal details.
