AML Policy


  1. Our Commitment

CharityByte is committed to preventing, detecting and deterring fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing. CharityByte has a no-tolerance fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing policy and actively engages the Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada (FINTRAC), the Royal-Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and other law enforcement agencies when users engage in activities contrary to this policy. 


  1. Compliance Program

Under the Proceeds of Crime (Money Laundering) and Terrorist Financing Act (PCMLTFA) and its regulations, CharityByte is developing an AML & CTF program that consists of these four elements.

Written policies and procedures: these list our responsibilities under the law, and what we are doing to meet them;

The appointment of a Compliance Officer: the person who is ultimately responsible to develop and maintain our AML and CTF compliance program;

AML Compliance Effectiveness Reviews: testing and reporting completed either annually or every two years that assesses how well our compliance program is working; and

Training: conducted at least annually to ensure that each employee understands his or her roles and responsibilities.


  1. Operational Compliance

In addition to our documented program that consists of the four elements, CharityByte also operates in a FINTRAC compliant manner. This includes:

Collecting and recording client identification and know your customer (KYC) information, in accordance with legal requirements, prior to granting users access to our platform,

Reporting certain types of transactions to regulators and government agencies including, but not limited to, transactions suspect to be originating from or connected to terrorist, money laundering, tax evasion, fraud or other illegal activities,

Maintaining appropriate registration and licensing, and

Keeping all user and transaction records in a manner required by law.

Refund Policy

All trades, purchases, gifts, donations conducted on or through CharityByte or our Registered Charity Partner, People Planet Animals Foundation are final. Exceptions will be made if:

A refund is required due to applicable law or regulation; or

The erroneous transaction is processed due to a technical error. CharityByte will take reasonable action to restore the user’s position prior to the error.

All refunds, at the request of the user, provided the following conditions are met.

The original funding method and bank is the recipient of the refund; and

The funds remain in the original funding currency.

We reserve the right to hold refunds for a period of up to 30 days or until we can verify the source of deposited funds. Refunds will only be sent to the same account and method used by the funding transaction.
