(within the meaning of GDPR article 4-2) ...

Processings performed by the Bank are for the particular purposes of:

  • managing the banking relationship with the Client, the account(s) and/or products or services purchased, including through marketing and statistical analyses for overseeing the Bank's relationship with the Client,
  • managing human resources
  • carrying out opinion, statistical, satisfaction, and wealth-related surveys,
  • managing, analysing, and granting loans, selecting risks,
  • combating fraud,

regulatory obligations related to financial markets, and ensuring the security of the transactions.

SGPWM minimizes personal data processings with regard to the explicit purposes for which they are conducted.

SGPWM, in compliance with the requirements of the GDPR (Article 30-1), keeps a record of the processings of personal data.

For all processings of personal data, SGPWM implements retention rules (retention duration and disposition) so that the processed data are not kept in the production systems longer than necessary.

Your rights

SGPWM guarantees the exercise of the rights of data subjects in accordance with the GDPR. Any client, any employee any third party, and more generally any natural person concerned has in accordance with articles 13 to 22 of the GDPR a right of information, access and rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, as well as the right to data portability.

Any data subject may object at any time, for reasons relating to his particular situation, that its personal data are subject to processing.

It is specified that exercising of certain rights may entail SGPWM being unable, on a case-by-case basis, to provide the product or service. In addition, some of these rights may not be exercised if this should imply the destruction or alteration of information for which there is otherwise a legal or contractual obligation to declare or retain.

No payment is required to provide information to data subjects and to carry out any communication and take any action in the exercise of the rights of individuals.

Nevertheless, in accordance with Article 12.5 of the GDPR, in the case of manifestly unfounded or excessive requests, in particular because of their repetitive character, the controller may either charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested, or refuse to act on the request.
The data subjects are informed in particular by this page of our WEB site and by the General Conditions (if applicable) of the processings of their personal data and the rights that they can assert.

The Client or the persons concerned may, at any time and at no cost, without needing to justify their request, object to their Personal Data being used for business prospecting purposes.

The Client may exercise these rights by contacting the Bank's personal data protection officer by:

  • contacting his normal advisor,
  • sending a letter or e-mail under the same terms as those which exist for complaints as set out in Article 19 of General Terms and Conditions (if applicable),
  • logging in to his e-banking system.

The Client or any person concerned also has the ability to file a complaint with the Commission Nationale pour la Protection des Données (CNPD), the controlling authority in charge of adherence to personal data obligations, at the mailing address: 1, avenue du Rock’n Roll, L-4361 Esch-sur-Alzette or via their website www.cnpd.lu 

Your personal data protection and security

Risk analyzes are carried out and the necessary measures are taken to eliminate or limit the identified risks. A procedure for the management of personal data breaches is implemented and allows the notification, within the legal deadlines, to the supervisory authority of a possible violation, as well as to the data subjects if this is required under GDPR.

SGPWM also uses technical and organizational systems for the processing of personal data which, by design and by default, guarantee the protection of these data.
