It may also be necessary to process data which indirectly may identify your Personal Data, such as the IP-address you are communicating from. For employees and applicants for vacancies we may also process personal identity number, Curriculum Vitae, certificates, references, names and contact details for references.  

Our processing of Personal Data will always be strictly limited to the necessary for fulfilling the purpose.  

Unless otherwise stated, all processing of Personal Data is based on express and informed consent from you as the registered individual, in accordance with GDPR Article 6. No 1, litra (a).  


Payment services  

UNITE is processing Personal Data in order to provide the international payment services in a safe and feasible manner, in compliance with the agreements with the network banks and applicable laws and regulations. Processing of Personal Data is strictly limited to the purpose, and only to the extent necessary.  

Which Personal Data we need to process in order to execute the payment services is dependent on the scope and character of the applicable assignments. In any event, and to the extent needed to confirm their identities, we are processing the names of the parties of the applicable payment transactions, contact persons at the banks and enterprises of the involved, as well as address (postal and e-mail) and phone number. When need to provide the payment services we also process personal identity numbers and identification documents related to parties of the applicable payment or their representatives.  

We are mainly provided with the above Personal Data from banks. In some cases, we may also collect Personal Data from others, such as other parties involved in the payment services, governmental authorities and public sources of the relevant information.   

The legal grounds for processing of Personal Data in such situations is the processing is necessary to execute and order for payment services, cf GDPR art. 6, No 1, litra (b), or that the processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation we have, cf. GDPR art. 6, NO 1, litra (c), including procedures to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing, as well as to comply with domestic and international sanctions.  

Processing of Personal Data may also be founded in a balance between the interests we are pursuing and the fundamental rights of the registered individual, cf. GDPR art. 6, No 1, litra (f). The aforesaid may be applicable in the execution of payment services, and the registered individual is not directly part in an agreement with UNITE. In such event, we are bound by strict confidentiality obligations which in any event will limit the inconvenience caused by the processing. The alternative to processing would be that we would not be in position to provide the payment services.
