Help / AML Policy (Anti Money Laundering)

What is AML

In order to comply with legislation, we are legally required to obtain and check identity documents for all of our customers who purchase a piece of art worth €10,000 or more from Hang-Up Gallery, or who spend more than €10,000 with us in a single transaction.

This means that we have to ask you for a copy of a valid photo identity document, such as a passport, driving license or national ID card so that we have proof of your full name, date of birth, nationality and address on record.

This must be a photo or a clear scan of your document. It cannot be a photo of your identity document a screen, like your laptop or your phone.

Please understand that we are obliged to apply these checks, regardless of whether you are a new or a longstanding collector. Please also bear with us while we carry out these checks – we will do our best to make the process as smooth and efficient as possible for you. We're required to retain the information which you provide to us for 5 years. It will be held and processed in accordance with our Privacy Policy and will always remain secure and confidential.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate in contacting us to discuss them.
