In NBU reminded that banking secrecy still exists

В НБУ напомнили, что банковская тайна еще существуетAlthough the draft banking secrecy is already considering, for its violation can still be put behind bars.

If this happens, Ukrainians will have to show all their contributions.

Meanwhile, bankers do not forget about administrative or even criminal liability for “abuse of power and the violation of secrets”.

Lawyers say that almost all banks require customers to fill out a questionnaire and specify where they have opened accounts. Also bankers are interested in new customers, particularly their credit activity.

The national Bank of Ukraine has demanded from financial institutions carefully to use the acquired information and not to disclose Bank secrecy. At the same time, bankers can collect information about Ukrainians. This is referred to in the letter of the NBU, addressed to the financiers “About the inadmissibility of misuse of personal data”.

In particular, in a letter to the regulator it is noted that bankers can’t collect sensitive information about a person without their consent (except in cases determined by law). For such actions can be put behind bars for up to 3 years.

However, the NBU stated that banks should conduct identification and verification of clients (people and businesses), but without breaking the rules on personal data and banking secrecy.
