To us, compliance goes beyond adhering to guidelines and legal regulations. It’s engrained in our trust-based and collaborative approach, both within and outside the company.

Our policies

Our long-standing relationships with our customers, business partners and colleagues are based on a strong value system, which is also reflected in our internal and external policies.

Our business partners place a lot of trust in the network. That’s why our rules and regulations make fairness and transparency the basis for all interactions on Unite. 

Our Unite Principles of Conduct describe the essential principles that Unite considers as the benchmark for business conduct, recognising the responsibility towards people, society, and the environment. To us, these principles are minimum requirements that guide what we do every day. 

We’re committed to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 Statement and are making extensive efforts to minimise the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our own operations and supply chain. 

Building lasting relationships with our business partners depends on fairness, trust and transparency. Our Gift Policy covers the exchange of customary courtesies and small, appropriate gifts. 

In accordance with our value of 'sustainability', we are actively committed to environmental protection and strive to minimize or completely eliminate the impact of our business activities on the environment.

Our data security framework

Safeguarding data protection

Data is the driving force behind our platform. It’s what empowers all its participants to create and share value. Protecting this data is a crucial building block for trustworthy business relationships. At Unite, we handle data with care and always strive for stronger data protection.

Strengthening our information security

Digital businesses like Unite have a big responsibility for information security as we manage both our own and all of our stakeholders’ data. That’s why professional information security management is very important to us and helps to manage risks.
