During our onboarding process we generally collect information from our clients for two purposes - firstly, to know our clients, e.g. their identity, residency, the field of business, etc., and secondly, to know the lands that are registered with us for the purpose of assessment of ecosystem services.

The first type of information is required under the laws that apply to Single.Earth activities. There are laws on prevention of money laundering and terrorism financing and for establishing financial sanctions that we need to comply with. We carefully assess the collected information to ensure that Single.Earth services are not used in connection with any kind of financial crime.

Did you know?

Single.Earth OÜ is a virtual asset service provider authorised by the Estonian Financial Intelligence Unit, incorporated in Estonia with registered number FVT000524 and registered address at Telliskivi 60/2,15073, Tallinn, Estonia.

The information about lands is important for ensuring the correctness of our assessments of ecosystem services and also for ensuring that MERIT tokens are issued to persons who actually hold rights to the lands that have been signed up with us. We collect and process such information to provide a reliable service to all users.

We want to help nature globally and this means that our clients and added land plots may be located anywhere. As the natural and legal environments differ across countries, we may need to ask additional or different questions from clients. In general, our goal is to provide a seamless user experience with Single.Earth and to ask you as little as possible (but still as much as required) to complete all of the essential checks. We hope for your understanding and cooperation.

At Single.Earth we consider the security of data and assets of our clients and cooperation partners of utmost importance. With that in mind, we have established internal systems and controls to ensure data security. Personal data is processed in accordance with the GDPR requirements. We described our data processing principles in more detail in the Privacy Policy.
