When you sync your account, UNION takes periodic snapshots of your trading account and in return gives you access to a full suite of trading insights. Each synced account gets a link to a Factsheet, and once you've sent us the link, we'll add your Factsheet to a watchlist so we can track your progress.
Your trading account data is yours and private, and can easily be deleted after you have synced your account. Once deleted, the private Factsheet link will also no longer work.
