BLUE BELL, Pa., May 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. (“REGO”) (OTCQB:RPMT), shares Venable LLP Letter of Confidence for REGO Product, Mazoola®

The Letter of Confidence and Conclusions shared below:

Venable LLP is a full service law firm founded over 120 years ago and offering full-service solutions to everything from routine to novel privacy and cybersecurity challenges.

Venable was asked by REGO Payment Architectures to provide a Letter of Confidence on whether certain assertions that the company has made publicly either through its product or in other public settings are reflective of how the company collects, uses, shares, discloses, and stores data.

This Letter of Confidence provides our key takeaways from the detailed Memorandum of Confidence that was provided to REGO Payment Architectures exclusively for its own benefit and reliance.

We recognize that companies may make assertions through a variety of forms, such as marketing channels, product advertising, in-product statements, media interviews, or public speaking engagements. We found that the assertions made by REGO Payment Architectures that we specifically reviewed were verifiable and verified by our team of professionals.

As part of our analysis, we examined a combination of products, processes, and policies, including: (a) front end processes; (b) back end processes; (c) staging platform; (d) data flows; (e) written documents pertaining to data policies, app privacy policies and terms of use; and (f) documentation from Privo, a third party privacy, identity, and consent management company. We also tested the product from the perspective of both the parent and child account. In addition, we compared what we observed with the documentation provided by Privo and the data risk assessment that Privo had previously conducted. We also conducted a published news media review to determine the validity of certain public statements made by Mazoola about the functionality of the app and the collection, if any, of private information from children. Finally, we conducted interviews with representatives from REGO Payment Architectures, Mazoola team to examine the product and its associated data in a production environment.

Based on our review of the specific information provided, interviews conducted, and product tested, we can confirm that, as of May 1, 2022, the publicly available statements made by REGO Payment Architectures that we specifically reviewed were reflective of how the company or its Mazoola product collects, uses, shares, discloses, and stores data.

Based on the information we specifically reviewed, we state that the statements we reviewed made by REGO Payment Architecture’s representatives and those made in the Mazoola app itself related to the company’s data collection, usage, sharing, disclosing, and storing appear to be accurate as of the date noted above. Based on our specific review, we found Privo’s conclusion that Mazoola is COPPA compliant also appears to be accurate. We did not encounter evidence that the Mazoola app collects, children’s personal information, let alone stores, shares, or sells it. Finally, Mazoola does not appear to collect personal information such as a child’s name, track a minor user’s browsing habits, or solicit a minor via targeted advertising.

Peter S Pelullo, REGO CEO stated, “Rego intends to start to implement specific and strategic corporate actions over the next six months that include but are not limited to our Intellectual Property, MazoolaPay® privacy-enabled buy flow button, MazoolaEnabled® white label banking application, our Data Science and Monetization and direct to consumer adoption product strategy. The board intends to identify and engage a tech investment banker to assist with this process. The Confidence memo from a very reputable and industry leading law firm such as Venable, LLP concerning our unique assets as the only certified COPPA Compliant Payment platform in marketplace, will be the foundation for the company to start these activities.”
