General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

New EU rules about protection when processing personal data will come into effect on 25 May 2018. The purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is to improve protection for the individual when personal data is processed.

One important aspect of the improved protection for individuals is that data controllers, that is to say all companies and organisations that process personal data, will have to satisfy stricter requirements. A description of how your bank processes personal data is available from your bank, for example on the bank’s website or from its branches.
