IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES — To help fight the unlawful funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, relevant governments and applicable laws around the globe require all financial institutions to obtain, verify, and record information that identifies each person who transacts on our platform. What this means for you: When you transact with Rario, we, along with our Collaborators, will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other such information that will allow us to identify you.
