I am in the process of verifying for Tier 3 for the Kraken.com exchange, however they rejected my ID document because I applied a "only for Kraken.com" watermark. Applying such a watermark is considered a standard procedure to avoid ID fraud, in case a breach happens or ID documents are otherwise put into the wrong hands.

The initial rejection took very long after uploading my documents. After that, I tried to convince them by replying to the email in the support ticket, but I'm almost waiting for a week now and still no reply.

We do not have to put up with this sort of practice. I have removed my funds and looking for another exchange were they do respect the security of personal documents. Anyone a suggestion?
