INFORMATION BOLAMA COLLECTS

We want you to understand the types of information we collect when you register for and use Bolama’s services

Information you provide to us at registration

When you create a Bolama Account, you provide us with personal information that includes your contact information (Email Address, name, and a password). You can also choose to add a phone number for SMS or Google Authenticator account to be used for 2FA verification for improved security.

Information we collect when authenticating user identity

To comply with global industry regulatory standards including Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Know-Your-Customer (KYC), and Counter Terrorist Financing (CTF), Bolama requires user accounts to undergo user identity authentication for both Personal & Enterprise-level accounts. This entails collecting formal identification.

This information may be directly obtained by Bolama or through third party services.
