Who is responsible for the processing of your data? Banco Santander, S.A. (hereinafter “the Bank” or “Banco Santander”).
Postal address: C/ Juan Ignacio Luca de Tena, 11, 28027 Madrid.
Data Protection Officer / Privacy Office Contact:

Why and for what purpose do we process your personal data? The following are the various purposes for which Banco Santander processes them:

  • Processing carried out for the contract. They are necessary for signing the contract or for the provision of the service that you request from us.

    We will process your data to inform you about the Bank's products and services, for the purpose of acquiring them, as well as to maintain and fulfil the contract, evaluating for this purpose, when necessary, your solvency and credit risk.

    If you have used a digitalised handwritten signature in your interaction with the bank to request services and/or formalise transactions, we hereby inform you that we will store your biometric data obtained through the digitalisation of your handwritten signature (such as the stroke, intensity, speed, pressure and acceleration of the graph) and it will be processed exclusively as proof in the event of any repudiation in order to verify by comparison that the signature is yours and therefore perform customer authentication. Under no circumstance will we process your biometric data as a means of identification.

    In order to fulfil the contract, we may resort to external sources of information, such as official journals and newsletters, public records, government rulings, telephone directories, lists of persons belonging to professional associations, official lists for the prevention of fraud, social networks and the Internet.
  • Processing carried out with your consent. Provided that you have given your consent by ticking the box on the form that we make available to you.
  1.  Carrying out commercial activities:

    1.1. We will process your data in order to carry out commercial activities, as well as to draw up a commercial profile from your data, to offer you financial products and/or services different from those you may have taken out with the Bank, to congratulate you on special dates, to include you in loyalty programmes and to participate in draws organised by the Bank. These marketing activities may be carried out by any means, including electronically (e-mail, fax, SMS, social networks, mobile applications, etc.). This authorisation will continue even after your relationship with the Bank has ended.

    1.2. We will process your data in order to carry out commercial activities, both general and adapted to your marketing profile, to offer you products and/or services from Santander Group companies, partner and/or investee companies (for example, insurance companies and financial asset managers). These sales actions may be made by any means, including electronically (email, fax, SMS, social networks, mobile applications, etc.). This authorisation will continue even after your relationship with the Bank has ended. The partner and/or investee companies on whose products the commercial activities may be based belong to the following sectors: insurance, mass consumption, training, education and culture, home, health and beauty, hotel and travel, IT, telecommunications and technology, automotive, advisory services, real estate and construction, leisure and free time, security, textiles and fashion, restaurants, food-fishing and livestock, agri-food, sports, energy, repair and maintenance, transport, logistics, administration, advisory and consultancy, machinery and office materials, retail, industry, health and welfare services.
  2. We will disclose your data to companies of the Santander Group, as well as to companies that work with and/or are part owned by the Santander Group (such as insurance companies and financial asset managers), in order for them to carry out marketing activities, both general and adapted to your marketing profile, concerning their products and services or those of the Bank. These sales actions may be made by any means, both on paper and electronically (email, fax, SMS, social networks, mobile applications, etc.). You can access the full list of companies to whom we will disclose your data by requesting it from your Branch office or via the following link:
  3. We will refer to your data with companies that provide information on solvency, arrears and risk indicators in general, when we offer you personal finance.

In the event that you do not authorise the processing of your data for the above purposes, this will not affect the maintenance or fulfilment of your contractual relationship with the Bank.

  • Processing carried out for legitimate reasons
  1. We will process your data in order to carry out commercial activities, both general and those adapted to your marketing profile, in order to offer you products or services from the Bank similar to those you have already subscribed to. The marketing activities may be made by any means, including electronically (email, fax, SMS, social networks, mobile applications, etc.).
  2. We will process your data to make observations and to recommend Bank products and services. Specifically, we will process the transactional activity of the products and/or services you have arranged with the Bank, as well as the data on your savings and debt capacity. We will refer to the information we have for managing the services we provide you with or the products you have or have had in the last year.

    For these purposes, we can only refer to information from companies that provide information on solvency, arrears and risk indicators in general, if you give us your consent via the corresponding box on the questionnaire.

    With these two (2) above-mentioned processing procedures, the Bank pursues its legitimate interest in offering you the products and services that best suit your personal characteristics, as well as better conditions for products or services that you already have or may acquire in the future.
  3. We will process and/or disclose your data to third parties, whether or not they are companies of the Santander Group, in order to prevent, investigate and/or uncover fraud. The Bank's legitimate interest is to know and identify the participants in fraudulent activities in order to carry out the necessary actions.
  4. We will record your voice and / or your image and we will keep the telephone and / or video conversation, when we expressly tell you so. The Bank's legitimate interests are to maintain the quality of the service and to use the recordings as evidence in and out of court, when necessary.
  5. We will carry out anonymisation measures, after which the Bank will no longer be able to identify you. The purpose of these procedures is none other than to use anonymous information for statistical purposes and for the development of behavioural models.
  6. We will disclose your data to other companies belonging to the Santander Group and third party investees and/or companies working with the Santander Group (such as insurance companies and financial asset managers), in the event that you, as a customer of the Bank, acquire any of the products and/or services from these organisations that are marketed by the Bank. In this case, the disclosure will only affect a limited number of merely identifying data that the Bank holds concerning you, specifically, those strictly necessary for the conclusion of the contract. The aim is to simplify and speed up the arrangement via the Bank of the products it markets from other Group companies or third parties, given your status as a customer of the Bank. You can access the full list of companies to whom we will disclose your data by requesting it from your Branch office or via the following link:
  7. In the event of non-payment on your part, this may be reported to creditworthiness companies, such as Experian and/or Asnef, in compliance with the procedures and guarantees established at all times and recognised by current legislation. The Bank's legitimate interest is to comply with a suitable control and prevention of default situations, working to safeguard the financial system and the economy in general, while allowing access to solvency information to third parties which require an analysis of the solvency of applicants for risk transactions.

You may submit an objection to any of the above processing procedures on the basis of legitimate interest and, where appropriate, exercise your right not to be the subject of a decision based solely on automatic processing. To do so, you must contact the Data Protection Officer/Privacy Office and explain the reason for your objection.
