Any consent issued may be withdrawn anytime with future effect.
to preserve legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) lit f GDPR) generally
Where required, data processing may be pursued in consideration of interests that benefit Raiffeisen KAG or third parties in order to preserve legitimate interests. The following cases constitute data processing that is required to preserve legitimate interests. Examples of these include:

to preserve legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) lit f GDPR) in the marketing of our services
The analysis of data processed at the Company for the purpose of
providing or transmitting individual information and offers of the company to you;
developing services and products which target your specific interests and life situations; and
improving the user experience of their service facilities like apps and more;
is based on our legitimate interest in the marketing of our services. Data will only be analyzed for this purpose until you object to it.
The following data which the company autonomously collected or which you transmitted to the Company, will be analyzed for this:
Personal data / master data
Gender, title, family name, date of birth, country of birth, nationality, marital status, tax status, vocational training, profession, employer, proof of identity e.g. driver’s license data, income data, address and other contact data e.g. telephone number or e-mail address and postal address, GPS information, securities risk class according to investor profile, living situation as in renter or owner of an apartment or house, family relationships (excluding the personal data of these data subjects), number of persons living in the same household, information disclosed during a consultation e.g. hobbies and interests or planned purchases and car, household invoices, internal rating categories like the analysis of income and expenses situation and asset and liabilities situation by the Company.

Data for the use of electronic services and Internet pages; functionalities of the Internet pages and apps and e-mail messages between yourself and the Company; information about reputable Internet sites or content and prompted links inclusive of third-party websites; information about response times to content or download errors and the period of use of Internet sites and information on the use of and about the subscription to Company newsletters. This information will be recorded using automated technology like cookies or via web tracking (recording and analyzing the surfing behavior) on the website and using third-party service providers or software (for example, Google Analytics).
Data on user-generated content (also refer to “additional information for using our website”)
Information uploaded to Internet sites or apps of the Company, such as comments or personal posts and photos or videos or similarly.
Who receives my data?
Within the Company, those offices or employees will receive your data who require them to fulfill contractual, legal and/or regulatory obligations and legitimate interests. Moreover, commissioned data processors under contract will receive your data (especially IT and back-office service providers) only if these data are required for them to perform their respective service. All data processors are bound by contract to treat your data confidentially and to process them exclusively in the context of their service delivery performance.
If a legal or regulatory obligation applies, public agencies and institutions (European Banking Supervisors, European Central Bank, Austrian National Bank, Austrian Financial Market Supervisory Authority, financial authorities, etc.) and our bank’s auditor and annual auditors may be the recipients of your personal data.
With regard to forwarding data to other third parties we wish to point out that the Company, as an Austrian credit institution, is obliged to observe banking secrecy obligations pursuant to Section 38 BWG and therefore is obliged to maintain secrecy on all customer-related information and facts which were entrusted to us or made accessible to us by virtue of the account relationship. We therefore may only forward your personal data if you explicitly released us in writing and in advance from the banking secrecy obligation or if we are obliged or authorized by law or due to regulatory provisions to do so. The recipients of personal data in this context may include other credit institutions or financial institutions or similar establishments. We transfer data which we require from you for the performance of the account relationship. Depending on the individual agreement, these recipients may include, for example, correspondent banks, stock exchanges, custodian banks or other undertakings affiliated with the Company (by virtue of official or statutory obligation).
Additional data recipients may include those departments for which you issued the respective consent to us (consent to the processing of data, exemption from banking secrecy obligation).
What is the storage period for my data?
We process your personal data, insofar as is necessary, for the duration of the entire account relationship (from initiation to processing until termination of a contract) and, beyond this, according to statutory retention and documentation obligations as stipulated, among others, by the Austrian Business Code (UGB), the Austrian Federal Fiscal Code (BAO), the Austrian Banking Act (BWG), the Austrian Financial Markets Anti-Money Laundering Act (FM-GwG), the Austrian Investment Fund Act and the Austrian Securities Supervision Act (WAG).
Moreover, the storage period must take into consideration the statutory periods of limitation which, according to the Austrian Civil Code (Allgemeines Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, ABGB) may be up to 30 years in certain cases (the most commonly referred to period of limitation in practice is 3 years).
Which data protection rights do I have?
You have the right of access to your information, the right to rectification, the right to erasure or the right to restrict the processing of your personal data, the right to object to the processing as well as the right to data portability in accordance with the requirements stipulated under data protection laws. Complaints may be lodged with the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Wickenburggasse 8, 1080 Vienna, www.dsb.gv.at.
Am I obliged to provide data?
Within the context of the account relationship you must provide such personal data as is necessary for the account relationship to commence and to be performed, the collection of which we are obliged to pursue by law. If you do not provide said data to us, we will reject the formation of the contract or the performance of the contract in general, or will no longer be able to perform the existing contract and consequently, will have to terminate it. However, you are not obliged to issue your consent to the processing of data which are irrelevant or not required by law or regulatory provisions in relation to the fulfilment of the contract.
Is there any automated decision-making?
To substantiate and perform the account relationship, we do not use fully-automated decision-making methods in principle as laid down in Article 22 GDPR. Should we apply these methods in the individual case, we will inform you separately of this, provided this is required by law.
