Why Playter Uses Open Banking
Real Time Insights
Open Banking allows Playter to access up-to-date financial data. This means when assessing a business's financial health or an individual's creditworthiness, Playter can make decisions based on current information rather than relying on outdated records.
Tailored Financial Solutions
With a deeper understanding of a business's financial situation, Playter can offer more personalised financial solutions, ensuring businesses get the best possible terms.
Streamlined Processes
Open Banking simplifies many traditional banking processes. For instance, verifying a customer's financial status becomes quicker, reducing the time it takes to approve financing.
Safety and Security of Open Banking
Open Banking prioritises the safety and security of users' financial data. Here's how:
Consent is Key
Financial institutions can only access a user's data if they have explicit consent. Users have complete control over who can access their data and for what purpose.
Read-Only Access
When you grant access to your financial data through Open Banking, it's "read-only." This means companies can view the data but cannot control your bank account or make any transactions, even if you approve the connection.
Regulated Providers
Only regulated providers, vetted and approved, can participate in Open Banking. This ensures that all parties involved adhere to strict security standards.
Data Encryption
All data shared through Open Banking is encrypted to the highest standard securing your privacy throughout.
Why Open Banking is Safe
The Open Banking website emphasises the safety of this initiative. It's designed with stringent security measures to ensure that personal and financial data remains protected. That's why Open Banking is reshaping the financial landscape, driving financial inclusion, innovation, and business empowerment.
Playter's Commitment to Security
Playter understands the concerns businesses and individuals might have about sharing their financial data. That's why, in addition to leveraging the security measures inherent in Open Banking, Playter has its own set of security protocols to ensure data privacy and protection. You can learn more about how we handle and protect your data in our Privacy Policy.
