This information note provides you with a comprehensive overview of the nature of personal data collected by the bank, how it is used, and your rights associated with this processing.
1. WE ARE TRANSPARENT ABOUT OUR COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA.
1.1. WHAT PERSONAL DATA IS COLLECTED, AND HOW?
We deal with different types of data, including personal and business details, financial and tax information, identification and authentication data, information obtained in the execution of our contractual obligations, marketing and sales data as well as various other similar information.
Personal data is mainly collected through the bank's channels of communication (branches, telephone calls, websites, mobile applications, etc.) as well as sources accessible to the public (registers, administration, Internet, etc.).
1.2. FOR WHAT PURPOSES AND ON WHAT GROUNDS DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Your data enables us to provide you with banking services, to offer you suitable products, to ensure their good performance, to carry out market and clients satisfaction research, and to personalise our advice according to your needs. In order to better know you and advise you, we use automated decision-making, including profiling based on the types of products and services you use.
In addition, we collect your personal data to protect the bank's legitimate interests. By doing so we can guarantee network and information security, manage litigation, facilitate recovery procedures and carry out client acquisition campaign.
We also use your personal data to accomplish all the other objectives for which you have given us your consent.
In addition, as a banking institution, we are subject to certain legal and regulatory obligations whose aims include preventing fraud, money laundering, and non-payment, and ensuring the management of risk and security. The purpose of processing your data is to meet these requirements.
1.3. WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR PERSONAL DATA, AND FOR HOW LONG?
The potential recipients of your data are the bank's services, service providers, entities and institutions of public law who are legally required to receive them, persons acting on your behalf or who are involved in your transactions, and any entities for which you have given consent.
If the law so requires or if you have consented to it, and the adequate level of protection is guaranteed, your personal data may be transmitted abroad, to an EU member or non-member state.
We emphasize that when communicating externally, we take steps to ensure that banking secrecy and personal data security rules are respected.
In addition, we store your personal data only for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and to comply with our legal, regulatory, and internal obligations.
