Last updated September 5th 2022

As a trusted companion, the protection of your personal data is important to the BNP Paribas Group.

We have revised our Data Protection Notice to improve transparency and provide further information on our processing of your personal data, including but not limited to personal data processing in the context of: 

  • business to business and/or direct marketing; and
  • anti-money laundering, countering the financing of terrorism and international sanctions (freezing of assets).
Introduction

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously.

BNP Paribas (including its subsidiaries) in relation to its Corporate and Institutional Banking (CIB) business (“we”, “our”), as a controller, is responsible for collecting and processing your personal data in relation to our banking activities which include capital markets services, securities services, financing, treasury and advisory services.

The business of the BNP Paribas Group is to help all of their clients: individuals; entrepreneurs; small and medium-sized enterprises; large companies; multi-national groups and institutional investors, in all of their activities from their day-to-day banking requirements to their commercial objectives and projects, by providing appropriate financing, investment, multi-asset servicing, savings and insurance solutions.  

As a member of an integrated banking and insurance group, in collaboration with the various entities of the Group, we provide our clients with a complete range of banking, insurance and leasing products and services. 

Whether under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016) and/or other applicable data protection legislation, the purpose of this Data Protection Notice is to inform you of: the personal data we collect about you; the reasons why we use and share such data; how long we keep the data; what your rights are (as to the control and management of your data) and how you can exercise your personal data rights.  

Further information may be provided where necessary at the time of collection of your personal data.

1. Are you subject to this notice?

This Data Protection Notice applies to you (“you”) if you are:

  • an employee, consultant, contractor, legal representative, shareholder, investor, or beneficial owner of:
    • a client;
    • a prospective client;
    • a client or counterparty of our clients(s); or

  • a beneficiary of financial transactions (payment or shares) or contracts, policies, or trust;
  • an ultimate beneficial owner in the context of our services;

When you provide us with personal data related to other people, please make sure that you inform them about the disclosure of their personal data and invite them to read this Data Protection Notice, as it provides them useful information about their rights. We will ensure that we will do the same whenever possible (e.g., when we have the person’s contact details).
