Website Privacy Notice

About us

Unit helps tech companies build financial services into their products: deposits, cards, payments, lending, and more. We do this by building a rich API layer on top of partner banks and assuming a range of responsibilities as a program manager.

About This Notice

This Privacy Notice (the “Notice”) explains the ways that Unit Finance, Inc. (“Unit”, “we”, “our”, and “us”) collects, uses, and shares information about you in connection with:

  • Your access to or use of Unit’s website, products, or services, which includes our Onboarding Process service described below (collectively, the “Services”); and
  • Any other information we collect when you interact with us, except as outlined in the paragraph below.

Unit’s “Onboarding Process” is a technology service provided to its Clients and banking partners designed to assist them in collecting information from you to allow them to qualify you for, or permit you to gain access to, their products and services. 

Please note that this Notice does not apply to the information we collect about you in relation to the provision of a financial product or service by one of Unit’s banking partners or your relationship with one of Unit’s Clients. If you have received a financial product or service through one of our partner banks or are a customer of one of our Clients, please refer to our End User Privacy Policy.

We hope you will take some time to read this Notice carefully.
