Privacy policy

Società Bancaria Ticinese undertakes to protect the privacy of all its customers, whether current, former or potential. We are aware that you entrust us with important personal information and we would like to reassure you that we take our responsibilities to protect and safeguard this information with the utmost seriousness. Below you will find a detailed description of the steps taken by Società Bancaria Ticinese in handling the information we collect on the website.

Information we collect

When you use the Società Bancaria Ticinese website it can collect information about you in the following ways:

  • We can send a cookie to your computer. Cookies are strings of information sent from a website and saved on your computer.
  • We can send specific cookies for each session and web bugs to automatically collect data on the use of the site during your visit, including your IP address, data on the click stream to monitor the parts of the site you visit and the information or other services that you obtain or key in (including the domain name, internet service provider, protocol, browser type, operating system, etc.) (information on use).

This information is mainly collected for the purposes of running the website, collecting demographic information and monitoring the use and performance of the site. If the cookie is deactivated, you might not receive all the information present on the site.

Secure data transmission

We should like to draw your attention to the fact that data transmitted via open facilities, such as the internet network or electronic messaging systems, may be accessible to anyone. Società Bancaria Ticinese cannot guarantee the privacy of communications or material transmitted via such facilities that are open to the public. Whenever you send us your personal information via a public network, you should bear in mind that this information may potentially be accessible to others and, consequently, it may be intercepted and used by others without your consent. In particular, even if the individual packets of data are often encrypted, the name of the sender and addressee are not. Any third party may therefore be able to detect the trace of an account or a banking relationship, either existing or subsequently created. Even if the sender and the addressee are located in the same country, the data may be transmitted regularly and without controls via these networks to other countries, including those that do not offer the same level of protection for data from your country of residence.

Your data may be lost during the transmission or may be intercepted by unauthorized persons. We cannot assume any responsibility for any damage, either direct or indirect, in relation to the security of your data during their transfer via internet. We recommend that you use other communication facilities if you think that this may be prudent or necessary for reasons of confidentiality.

Links to other sites

The website may contain links to other websites that are not managed or controlled by Società Bancaria Ticinese. These other websites are not subject to the present Privacy Policy and we are consequently not responsible for the content of such sites nor of the policies adopted by them in handling personal data. We recommend that you read the privacy policies of these third-party websites, check how these websites protect your personal data and verify that these websites are trustworthy.
