About XOR

XOR Data Exchange is the nation’s first multi-industry, permission-based data exchange. Using the privacy standards championed by regulators, XOR provides access to unique data sharing platforms that drive incremental lift in risk, authentication, customer acquisition and management, and regulatory compliance. The company currently manages exchanges that serve some of the nation’s leading credit card issuers, small business lenders, marketplace lenders, and the wireless, cable and satellite industries; and new exchanges are currently under way to support additional industries and applications.

The Founding Story

XOR was built by data and analytics industry experts driven by the conviction that existing data sharing practices are broken, and lack the transparency and control data owners and consumers need. Industry consolidation, new regulations, enhanced technology, and growth of data breach risks have converged to create an opportunity for a new data and analytics company to step in and change the game. We don’t believe in owning others’ data and think that companies are missing valuable opportunities for reciprocal exchange and monetization. We are turning the data sharing model upside down, taking power away from existing data vendors, and returning it where it should be – in the hands of companies and consumers.
