These Guidelines for Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Combating Terrorist Financing (CFT) and Sanctions were devised by Studentica Ltd to ensure the prevention of its business from being used for Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing, as well as to guarantee adherence to the international sanctions.

Studentica Ltd has the right to appoint a Third-party service provider to carry out the AML/KYC process. To protect the confidentiality of your personal data, the service provider is bound to our Privacy Policy.

If the legal authorities provide a legitimate official request, Studentica Ltd may distribute the information gathered through the AML/KYC process.
