Nourity's Compliance & Investigations (C&I) program plays a pivotal role in safeguarding Nourity against malicious users, potential threats, and internal disputes. It serves as the first line of defense, diligently protecting Nourity's core values, valuable assets, and dedicated staff, while ensuring strict adherence to the highest security standards and compliance with all pertinent regulations.
The Compliance & Investigations program boasts a distinguished team comprising 10 to 15 highly skilled, extensively trained, and exceptionally knowledgeable specialists and agents. Their diverse backgrounds and expertise synergize to create a formidable force capable of comprehensively analyzing and effectively resolving even the most intricate and sensitive situations that may arise.
Through a combination of technical prowess, analytical acumen, and an unwavering commitment to excellence, the C&I team provides invaluable insights and strategic guidance to the organization. They proactively identify potential threats, swiftly respond to emerging risks, and deftly mitigate any internal disputes that could undermine Nourity's operations and reputation.
Equipped with state-of-the-art tools and cutting-edge technologies, the C&I specialists maintain constant vigilance, monitoring the digital landscape, and promptly addressing any cybersecurity breaches, unauthorized access attempts, or suspicious activities. Their proactive stance ensures the early detection and prevention of security breaches, reinforcing Nourity's resilience against external threats.
Moreover, the Compliance & Investigations program meticulously upholds regulatory compliance, ensuring that Nourity operates within the bounds of the law.

What Are Person(s) of Interest?
A Person Of Interest (POI) is a term used to describe an individual who has been identified as potentially malicious or has exhibited suspicious activity in the past. When someone is included on the list of POIs, it may have implications for their career progression, such as being withheld from promotions, denied entrance to the Board of Directors, restricted from becoming an active stakeholder, and limited participation in certain programs within Nourity. These measures are implemented to safeguard the organization's interests and protect its assets.
However, it is important to note that being designated as a POI does not automatically imply guilt or wrongdoing. The inclusion of an individual on the POI list serves as a precautionary measure, allowing Nourity to maintain a heightened level of vigilance and ensure the overall security of the organization.
The decision to remove someone from the POI list rests solely with the C&I agents, who possess the expertise and knowledge required to assess the significance and ongoing risk associated with each POI. This process involves a careful evaluation of the individual's activities, their conduct over time, and any relevant changes in circumstances. Only when the person is no longer deemed to pose a threat or exhibit suspicious behavior will they be considered for removal from the list.
Nourity's commitment to maintaining the integrity of its POI system is underpinned by a dedication to fairness, transparency, and respect for individual privacy. Regular reviews and assessments ensure that the inclusion or exclusion of individuals on the POI list is carried out in a responsible and accountable manner, with the ultimate goal of preserving a safe and secure environment for all stakeholders.
Operations Policy - Introduction
In our ongoing effort to make Compliance & Investigations more transparent and accessible to the public, we have deemed it appropriate to create a public Operational Policy, which we believe will assist in fostering transparency.

Please note that the information enclosed in this document has been modified to meet specific criteria and to appeal to the general public.

We are authorized to gather and utilize any data accessible on the World Wide Web (WWW), including your activities on Nourity-managed-services. It's essential to note that we will never engage in any illegal means to access a user’s PII.
Personally Identifiable Information may be collected and stored when necessary—this may occur as part of an investigation or during routine checks. PII is never shared outside of Compliance & Investigations, and will always be blurred out or entirely removed if it is necessary to include such information in documentation.
Risk Compensation Payment
Risk Compensation Payment is available for eligible informants in recognition of their valuable contributions to the successful resolution of a case. The specific amount of RCP granted to each informant, as well as whether an informant is eligible to receive compensation, will be determined at the discretion of C&I executives on a case-by-case basis.
If you are involved in a case, please discuss RCP and your eligibility with your case manager. If you would like to report information, reach out to a member of C&I, and they will guide you through the process of reporting a user and claiming RCP.
