VIIMATI UUENDATUD: 1. JUULI 2021


Bank of America eraelu puutumatust käsitlev teatis ärikliendile

See eraelu puutumatust käsitlev teatis selgitab, kuidas ettevõte Bank of America Europe DAC kogub, kasutab ja avaldab isikuandmeid nii veebis kui ka veebiväliselt seoses ärikliendi kaartide pakkumise, ärimaksete ning meie poolt oma korporatiiv- ja institutsioonilistele klientidele pakutavate teenustega (edaspidi „teenused“). Käesolevas teatises on isikutele, kelle isikuandmeid me töötleme, nagu kaardiomanikud, reisijad ja meie klientide heaks töötavad inimesed, viidatud sõnaga „teie“. Lisaks selgitab see teatis, kuidas me kogume, kasutame, jagame ja kaitseme isikuandmeid, mis on kogutud andmesubjektidelt seoses üritustega, mida nimetatud juriidilised isikud korraldavad. Vt asjakohaseid jaotisi, mis puudutavad ürituste korraldamist ja elluviimist.

Pange tähele, et isikuandmeid, mida me kogume selleks, et täita oma seadustest ja eeskirjadest tulenevaid kohustusi seoses rahapesu ja terrorismi rahastamise tõkestamisega, töödeldakse ainult nimetatud eesmärkidel, kui ei ole teisiti lubatud või kokku lepitud.

 

Me ei kasuta teie isikuandmeid ainult automatiseeritud töötlemisel põhinevate otsuste tegemiseks (sh profiilianalüüsiks), millel võib olla üksikisikutele õiguslik või muu oluline mõju.
 

Isikuandmete avalikustamine
 

Isikuandmeid võidakse avalikustada:
 

  • meie heaks töötavale isikule või ettevõttele (kaasa arvatud professionaalseid teenuseid osutavad organisatsioonid nagu õigus-, auditeerimis- ja raamatupidamisteenuste osutajad, tehnoloogia- ja andmetöötlusettevõtted ning hostimisteenuste pakkujad);

Ebatäpsete või valeandmete esitamise või pettusekahtluste korral salvestame teabe ja võime edastada selle pettusevastastele teenistustele ja õiguskaitseasutustele.
 

Kui mõni kontoga seotud makse töödeldakse ülemaailmse maksesüsteemi kaudu, võidakse teid puudutav teave edastada teatud asutustele (kaasa arvatud väljaspool Iirimaad asuvatele asutustele) terrorismi avastamise ja ennetamise eesmärgil.

 

Muud kasutamise ja avalikustamise viisid


Samuti võime kasutada ja avaldada isikuandmeid, kui usume, et see on vajalik või kohane: (a) kohaldatava õigusakti, sh kodu- ja välisriigi valitsuste vahel sõlmitud lepingute või kokkulepete, järgimiseks (sh nt maksude deklareerimisega seotud õigusaktid), mille hulgas võivad olla õigusaktid, mis kehtivad väljaspool riiki, kus asute; ameti- ja valitsusasutuste päringutele, mille hulgas võivad olla võimuasutused, mis asuvad väljaspool teie riiki, vastamiseks; koostöö tegemiseks õiguskaitse-, valitsus-, järelevalve-, börsi- või teiste sarnaste ametite või võimuasutustega, sh maksuametitega, kellele meie oleme või meie sidusettevõtted on allutatud, igal juhul mis tahes riigis üle maailma, või mis tahes muul juriidilisel põhjusel, kes võivad edastada isikuandmeid samaväärsetele ametitele või võimuasutustele teistes riikides; (b) keskpankadele, reguleerivatele asutustele, kauplemisteabe hoidjatele või heakskiidetud aruandlusmehhanismidele, mis võivad asuda väljaspool teie riiki; (c) kohtutele, kohtuvaidluste vastaspooltele ja teistele, vastavalt kohtukutsele või muule kohtumäärusele või menetlusele või muul juhul, kui see on mõistlikult vajalik, sh kohtuvaidluse, vahekohtumenetluse jms menetluse kontekstis meie tingimuste ja sätete jõustamiseks; ning ulatuses, mis on mõistlikult vajalik mis tahes kohtuvaidluseks, vahekohtumenetluseks ja/või sarnase menetluse läbiviimiseks; ning (d) meie ja/või meie sidusettevõtete ning teie ja teiste isikute õiguste, eraelu puutumatuse, turvalisuse või vara kaitsmiseks.
 

Sellele lisaks võime me kasutada ja avalikustada isikuandmeid või edastada neid kolmandatele isikutele (i) juhul, kui leiab aset meie äritegevuse või selle mis tahes osa, varade või varude reorganiseerimine, liitmine, müük, ühisettevõttesse kaasamine, loovutamine, ümberpaigutus või likvideerimine (kaasa arvatud pankroti, maksejõuetuse või mis tahes sarnase menetlusega seoses) ja/või (ii) kolmandatele isikutele, kui seda nõuavad kliendid või nende esindajad.

 

Veebipõhised andmed
 

Kuidas kogume isikuandmeid veebis küpsiste ja sarnaste jälgimistehnoloogiate abil?
 

Kogume teid puudutavaid andmeid teie arvutist, nutitelefonist, tahvelarvutist jt mobiilseadmetest, kasutades küpsiseid ning teisi sarnaseid jälgimistehnoloogiaid.
 

Teilt ja teie kohta kogutavate andmete liik sõltub teie suhtlusest meiega ning võib sisaldada järgmist (kõik need ei pruugi olla teile kohaldatavad).

  • Kordumatud seadme identifikaatorid (nt meediumi juurdepääsukontrolli (MAC) ja internetiprotokolli (IP) aadressid)
  • Brauseri tüüp, versioon, keel ning kuvasätted
  • Andmed selle kohta, kuidas meie saite ja mobiilirakendusi kasutate (nt külastatud lehed või klõpsatud lingid).
  • Vastused küsitlustele jms andmed, mis näitavad vaateid ja eelistusi, kuid ei pea tingimata paljastama isiku konkreetset identiteeti.
  • Kuidas on reageeritud reklaamidele saitidel ja veebis.
  • Logiandmed (nt teie otsingu- ja kõnetuvastuse päringud mobiilirakenduses)
  • Otsimootori soovitused
  • Geolokatsiooni andmed

 

Kuidas me veebi kaudu kogutud andmeid kasutame?
 

Kogume neid andmeid küpsiste jt jälgimistehnoloogiate kaudu järgmistel põhjustel.
 

  • Kuna see on vajalik saidi nõuetekohase töö tagamiseks, nt autentimiseks turvalisel saidil. Ilma nende andmeteta pole võimalik mõningaid teie soovitud teenuseid pakkuda – nt autentimist nõudval turvatud saidil ning kelmuste ja identiteedivarguste ning teiste teid või Bank of Americat ohustavate riskide tuvastamiseks ja ennetamiseks.
  • Teie valikute meelespidamiseks (nt teie kasutajanimi, keel või piirkond) ja teile täiustatud ning personaalsema kasutuskogemuse pakkumiseks. Nende küpsiste abil saab meeles pidada muudatusi, mida olete teinud teksti suurusele, fondile jt veebilehtede osadele, mida võite olla kohandanud. Lisaks aitavad need osutada teie tellitud teenuseid, nt video vaatamine või blogis kommenteerimine.
  • Veebisaidi talitluse parandamiseks ning andmete kogumiseks selle kohta, kuidas külalised veebisaiti kasutavad, nt milliseid lehti külastajad kõige sagedamini külastavad või seda, kas nad on saanud veebilehtedelt veateateid. Neid andmeid saab kasutada ka üldiste järelduste tegemiseks turundus- ja reklaamiuuringute eesmärgil, tuginedes valikutele ja sirvimiskäitumisele.
  • Teile ja teie huvidele sobivate reklaamide esitamiseks. Lisaks piiratakse nende abil reklaami kuvamiste arvu ning mõõdetakse ka reklaamikampaania tõhusust. Neid avaldavad tavaliselt reklaamivõrgud veebisaidi omaniku loal. Need jätavad meelde, et olete veebisaiti külastanud ja selliseid andmeid võidakse jagada teiste organisatsioonidega, nt reklaamiostjatega.
  • Teile teie küsitud andmete esitamiseks, nt lähima kontori leidmine vastavalt teie asukohale.

 

Muu teabe kasutamine ja avalikustamine
 

Me võime kasutada ja avalikustada muid andmeid mis tahes eesmärgil, välja arvatud juhul, kui peame tegutsema teisiti lähtuvalt kehtivatest õigusaktidest. Mõnedel juhtudel võime me ühendada muud andmed isikuandmetega. Kui me ühendame muud andmed isikuandmetega, käsitletakse ühendatud andmeid isikuandmetena seni, kuni need on ühendatud.
 

Lisateavet küpsiste ja jälgimistehnoloogiate (sh küpsiste haldamise kohta) vt meie küpsisereeglitest.


Kolmanda isiku teenused
 

Käesolevas teatises ei käsitleta mis tahes kolmandate isikute (kaasa arvatud mis tahes kolmas isik, kes käitab veebisaiti või pakub teenust, millega teenused on lingitud) isikuandmete kaitset, andmete haldamist või muid tavasid ning need valdkonnad jäävad meie vastutusalast välja. Lingi olemasolu teenustes ei tähenda lingitud saidi või teenuse soovitamist meie või meie sidusettevõtete poolt.
 

Turvalisus
 

Me otsime võimalusi mõistlike korralduslike, tehniliste ja halduslike meetmete kasutamiseks, et kaitsta isikuandmeid meie organisatsioonis. Kahjuks ei saa 100%-liselt garanteerida ühegi edastus- ega salvestussüsteemi turvalisust. Kui teil on põhjust arvata, et teie teabevahetus meiega ei ole enam turvaline, teavitage meid sellest viivitamatult, järgides allpool jaotises „Kontaktteave“ toodud juhiseid.
 

Meilt elektrooniliste sõnumite saamine
 

Kui te ei soovi enam meilt tulevikus e-posti teel turundussõnumeid saada, võite neist loobuda, järgides asjaomases elektroonilises sõnumis toodud juhiseid.
 

Me proovime täita teie taotluse(d) nii ruttu, kui see on mõistlikult teostatav. Juhime tähelepanu sellele, et kui otsustate meie e-posti teel saadetavatest turundussõnumitest loobuda, võime teile siiski saata olulisi halduse ja teenuse või tehingutega seotud sõnumeid, millest ei saa loobuda.


Kuidas saavad üksikisikud oma isikuandmetele juurdepääsu või neid muuta või varjata
 

Kui te soovite teie enda poolt eelnevalt meile esitatud isikuandmeid üle vaadata, korrigeerida, uuendada, varjata, piirata või kustutada või kui te soovite taotleda elektroonilist koopiat oma isikuandmetest, et edastada need andmed teisele ettevõttele (ulatuses, millele vastavalt on see andmete ülekandmise õigus kohaldatavate õigusaktidega teile antud), võite meiega ühendust võtta telefoninumbril 00800 0456 7890 või +44 (0) 207 839 1481. Me vastame teie päringule kooskõlas kohaldatavate õigusnormidega.
 

Palun täpsustage oma taotluses, milliseid isikuandmeid te soovite muuta, kas soovite, et teie esitatud andmed oleksid meie andmebaasides varjatud, või teatage meile, milliseid piiranguid te sooviksite seada teie esitatud isikuandmete meiepoolsele kasutamisele. Teie kaitsmiseks saame me isikuandmetega seoses täita üksnes neid taotlusi, mis on seotud selle e-posti aadressiga, millelt te meile oma taotluse saatsite, ja me peame enne teie taotluse täitmist kinnitama teie isikusamasuse. Me proovime täita teie taotluse nii ruttu, kui see on mõistlikult teostatav.
 

Palun arvestage, et me võime säilitada teatud andmeid arvepidamise eesmärgil ja/või mis tahes tehingute lõpuleviimiseks, millega te alustasite enne sellise muutmise või kustutamise taotlemist. Samuti on võimalik, et meie andmebaasidesse ja teistesse registritesse jääb jääkandmeid, mida ei eemaldata. Võib juhtuda, et kui te taotlete andmete kustutamist, ei ole me enam võimelised teile teenust pakkuma.


Säilitusperiood

Me säilitame isikuandmeid nii kaua, kui see on vajalik või lubatud olenevalt eesmärgist (eesmärkidest), mille jaoks me andmeid kogusime. Säilitamisperioodi kindlaksmääramisel lähtume järgmistest kriteeriumidest: i) ajaline periood, mille vältel meil on kliendisuhe ja pakume kliendile teenuseid; ii) kas eksisteerib õiguslik kohustus, mida me peame täitma; või iii) kas meie õiguslikus olukorras on andmete säilitamine soovitatav (näiteks seoses kohaldatavate aegumistähtaegade, kohtuvaidluste või uurimistegevusega).


Teenuste kasutamine alaealiste poolt

Teenused ei ole suunatud isikutele, kes on nooremad kui kaheksateist (18) eluaastat, ja me ei küsi ega kogu teadlikult isikuandmeid nendelt, kes on alla 18-aastased.


Jurisdiktsioon ja piiriülene edastamine

Isikuandmeid võidakse salvestada ja töödelda mis tahes riigis, kus meil on üksusi või kus me kaasame teenusepakkujaid, kaasa arvatud Ameerika Ühendriikides. Teatavatel juhtudel on võimalik, et nendes teistes riikides asuvatel kohtutel, õiguskaitseasutustel, reguleerivatel ametiasutustel või julgeolekuasutustel on õigus juurdepääsuks isikuandmetele.
 

Kui te asute Euroopa Majanduspiirkonnas (EMP): mõnes väljaspool EMPd asuvas riigis on Euroopa Komisjoni hinnangul tagatud piisav isikuandmete kaitse tase, mis vastab EMP standarditele (nende riikide täielik loend on saadaval aadressil https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_et). Andmete edastamisel EMPst riikidesse, mille andmekaitsetaset ei pea Euroopa Komisjon piisavaks, rakendame kohaseid meetmeid, näiteks Euroopa Komisjoni standardseid lepingutingimusi isikuandmete kaitseks. Täpsem teave nende meetmete kohta on saadaval aadressil https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu/model-contracts-transfer-personal-data-third-countries_en. Edastamine võib toimuda ka lepingute alusel teie huvides või teie soovil.


Tundlikud andmed
 

Üldjuhul ei kogu me teenustega seoses tundliku sisuga teavet. Me palume, et te ei saadaks meile teenuste kaudu ega muul viisil mis tahes tundliku sisuga teavet (mis on seotud näiteks rassilise või etnilise päritolu, poliitiliste seisukohtade, religiooni või muude tõekspidamiste, tervise, biomeetriliste andmete või geneetiliste omaduste, kriminaalse tausta või ametiühingute liikmesusega).
 

Ürituste korraldamine ja läbiviimine: Osaleja saab teatada registreerumise hetkel oma puudest, mis millega võivad olla seotud erivajadused, või erisoovidest, mis on seotud religiooni ja/või tervisega (nt eridieet). Selliseid andmeid kasutatakse ainult ulatuses, mis on vajalik puudega isiku abistamiseks või erivajaduste rahuldamiseks. Seega võivad teatud registreerumisandmed sisaldada tundlikke isikuandmed (nt eridieedi piirangud, mis võivad viidata konkreetsele religioonile. Selliseid andmeid kasutatakse ainult üritusel osalemise hõlbustamiseks.


Käesoleva eraelu puutumatust käsitleva teatise muudatused
 

Me võime käesolevat eraelu puutumatust käsitlevat teatist aeg-ajalt muuta. Märkus „Viimati uuendatud“ selle eraelu puutumatust käsitleva teatise ülaosas näitab, millal teatist viimati muudeti. Mis tahes muudatused selles eraelu puutumatust käsitlevas teatises jõustuvad siis, kui me avaldame muudetud teatise teenuste juures. Kui kasutate pärast neid muudatusi teenuseid edasi (või jagate meiega jätkuvalt oma isikuandmeid), tähendab see, et te nõustute eraelu puutumatust käsitleva teatise muudetud versiooniga.
