Our data principles

Bud is shaped by a culture of ethical use of data. We strive to raise the standard for both the Open Banking and Financial Services industries and have distilled our approach into a set of principles. They guide everything we do.

  • Shield key

    Security first

    We put the security of data above all else and use advanced encryption techniques.

  • Multiple actions shield

    Built for privacy

    We train machine learning models on anonymised data to protect people’s privacy.

  • Single man focus

    User-centered

    We only use data to benefit people and build tools to meet their needs.

  • Book open text

    Transparent and open

    We make sure our clients understand how and why we use data because we believe in responsible innovation.

  • Legal hammer

    Accountable and robust

    We’re accountable to clients and regulators (including the FCA and ICO) and we hold our team to the highest standards.

  • Stop sign

    No compromises

    We’d rather step away from an opportunity than compromise on these principles.

Thought leadership

We spend our time immersed in the industry, in our clients and their customers and in the data we use to power our decisions. Occasionally we write about the insight that gives us.
