18.3 International Payments are currently made by us via the Belgium based Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunications (SWIFT). SWIFT processes payments on behalf of financial institutions worldwide and is currently the only organisation providing such a service. All transactions processed in Belgium are replicated in a back-up system ('mirror site') in the United States of America (US). Maintaining a geographically separated back-up infrastructure to ensure continued operation is in line with international standards and supervisory requirements. On foot of official subpeona(s), transaction data held in the US 'mirror site' may be disclosed to US or other authorities for the purposes of combating terrorism and other serious crimes. Therefore, any information you provide to us in order to effect a payment instruction could potentially be disclosed to the US authorities, and by instructing us to make a payment, you are implicitly giving your consent to such a disclosure. We reserve the right to amend this notice at any time. You should regularly check for any amendments.
