Some benefits that you can receive by allowing your personal information to be shared between the subsidiaries and affiliates of the Bank, in the strictest confidentiality, are discounts, direct marketing offers, combined account statements, information on new and improved products, and easy access to information about your accounts.
A. How and what information we collect
The Bank collects the following information about you from several sources:
1. Personal information may include name, address and phone number provided on credit applications, account openings or other forms.
2. Transaction information, such as balance, payment history or others.
3. Credit information, such as creditworthiness and credit history from consumer credit agencies. In addition, the information described above is shared to send you direct marketing. For these offers on products and services we consider criteria based on the information we collect.
B. Who we share your information
The Bank will not share your personal information with nonaffiliated third parties, except as permitted by law. Third parties are companies or organizations that are not part of the companies controlled by the Bank. An example would be the company that prints checks or issue credit cards for our customers. As an exception, the Bank shares the personal information of its customers with reputable institutions to carry out marketing initiatives by the Bank. Also the Bank makes marketing campaigns with other companies in order to provide a product or service. When carrying out joint marketing efforts, the Bank only shares the information necessary to achieve the above purposes. In addition, we require those companies, under contract, to maintain the confidentiality of the information and limit its use only for the purposes for which it was provided.
