You need to verify your identity in order to use your State Of Cards™ account. This policy is in line with a banking regulation commonly known as ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) and is the process of a business verifying the identity of its clients. It is simply an anti-corruption and fraud measure. Until you have completed this step, you are not bound by State Of Cards™ General Terms of Service. Any card top-ups or bank transfers you send into your State Of Cards™ account before verifying your identity will be made at your own risk and are subject to applicable fees. As a company, we need to know who you are. That’s why you have to prove your identity with a supported passport or ID card, when you open an State Of Cards™ account. We would never ask you to prove your identity on behalf of other individuals or companies. The way you show us your ID depends on your nationality, your country of residence, and the type of ID you use. Lastly we want to point out that the verification does not mean that we need a credit check.
