1.2 PEP Screening
Our ‘AML Pro’ service incorporates the process of screening the same Sanctions Screening input User Data for politically exposed persons (“PEP’s”). User Data is screened on recursive basis overnight, every night, against the various sanctions data collected by Caresso as from time to time updated (at Caresso’s sole discretion and without further notice). We screen the main national, and international, data sources.
1.3 SIP screening
Our ‘AML Pro’ service incorporates the process of screening the same Sanctions Screening input User Data (persons, firms and bodies corporate alike) for special interest persons (“SIP’s”). User Data is screened on recursive basis overnight, every night, against the various sanctions data collected by Caresso as from time to time updated (at Caresso’s sole discretion and without further notice) and typically includes those implicated in, or convicted of, criminal activity, including the ‘most wanted’. We screen the main national, and international, data sources (including Interpol Red and Yellow lists). We also scan other lists and databases of interest.
1.4 *Asset screening
As part of our AML Pro Sanction Screening service, we also screen assets.
1.5 AML Verify
Our ‘pay-as-you-go’ passport verification service that provides passport chip scanning and photographic likeness verification. Bundles of ‘AML Verify Credits’ are purchased as needed as set out on the Website. (Jointly the “Services”).

2. User Data veracity guidelines
Extreme care must be taken when inputting User Data into our screening services. We strongly advise to include pseudonyms, aliases and even miss-spellings wherever there is any doubt as to the veracity of the identity of User Data. This is because our service is explicitly set up to match User Data that you have qualified against authoritative document(s) that you have in turn verified. For the absolute avoidance of any doubt, our services do not provide ‘fuzzy matching’ by design as they are designed for bulk, daily recursive scanning of verified client lists, for example those of accountants, financial institutions and other professionals that are required to perform the screening described in this document.
