Know your customer (KYC) solution provider HooYu has launched a complete KYC solution aimed at gaming operators in the German market.
The supplier was approved by Germany’s age verification regulator, die Kommission für Jugendmedienschutz (KJM), earlier this year, and has now added several new services to help operators remain compliant with KYC and anti-money laundering (AML) requirements in the jurisdiction.
The solution brings together identity data checks with credit bureau Schufa, KJM-approved facial biometrics and ID document validation, video verification with live human agents, politically exposed person (PEP) and sanctions watchlist screenings, and payment card checks.
The Schufa database check allows operators to confirm a customer’s name, address and date of birth, check for fraudsters using the identities of the deceased and uncover linked addresses.
This can be used as an integrated precursor to the HooYu liveness detection, facial biometric and ID document validation ..
