Why does Eurobank collect your data and which are the legal bases of their processing?
Eurobank collects and processes personal data of yours that are necessary in each particular case:
Α. Upon your consent
Said processing serves purposes such as the communication with you provided you have electronically filled the forms that are available on the Website (forms for complaints or compliments, communication forms etc.) or in case you have requested to receive updates and information via newsletters, financial statements etc.. It is clarified that filling the abovementioned Website and newsletter/financial statements forms with your personal data constitutes a declaration of consent on your behalf and enables Eurobank to communicate with you and send you newsletters/financial statements. Moreover, Eurobank may process your data for promotional/advertising purposes, in case you have provided us with your consent. In such cases you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, the processing based on your consent prior to your withdrawal remains unaffected (regarding the ways to withdraw your consent you may see the relevant section “How you can exercise your rights” below; we may also inform you on other ways to withdraw your consent depending on the way you provided us with it i.e. in each newsletter there is an electronic link for consent withdrawal/deletion from the recipients’ list etc.).
Β. For Eurobank’s compliance with its legal obligations
Said processing serves purposes such as:
- Eurobank’s compliance with obligations imposed by the relevant legal, regulatory and supervisory framework in force, as well as with the decisions of any authority (public, supervisory, prosecution, independent etc.) or court (ordinary or arbitration).
- The protection and security of the information systems, the prevention, deterrence and repression of any illegal act.
Said processing as described in Section B also serves Eurobank’s or any third party’s legitimate interests (as described in Section C below).
C. For Eurobank’s or any third party’s legitimate interests
Said processing also serves purposes such as the upgrading of the provided services and the defense of Eurobank’s or a third party’s legal rights and legitimate interests. Prior to this processing it has been assessed that said processing does not affect your fundamental rights and freedoms to such an extent that they are overriding Eurobank’s or a third party’s legitimate interests, making thus the processing under this basis forbidden.
