The MERCHANT shall adhere with applicable privacy laws in the lawful and secure processing of personal data to protect against breach of confidentiality, integrity and availability.

COMPLIANCE WITH AMLA-CTF

In compliance with the provisions of Republic Act No. 9160, also known as the “Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2001” (AMLA), as amended, and Republic Act No. 10168, also known as the “Terrorism Financing Prevention and Suppression Act of 2012” (TFPSA), the MERCHANT will adhere to the strictest sense that it will cooperate and will report to GXI all transactions that in any way may be connected with or in violation of the AMLA, TFPSA, and all related laws. This is to protect and preserve the integrity of the GCash financial system, including the confidentiality of all related accounts, to ensure that this business engagement shall not be used as a money laundering site for the proceeds of any unlawful activity and that the Merchant Partner will extend cooperation, consistent with GXI’s policy on AMLA-CTF, in investigations and prosecutions of persons involved in money laundering activities wherever committed in conjunction with this business partnership.
