We are amending the “Regulations on Opening, Holding and Closing Bank Accounts at mBank S.A.” as of 2 August 2021.
The key amendments are as follows:
- We have added the “Rules of Conduct in the Case of Change, Withdrawal or Discontinuation of a Benchmark”, which constitute a new appendix to the Regulations. We will apply them when a benchmark used to calculate the account interest rate (e.g. WIBOR, LIBOR) is not published, is discontinued, cannot be applied, or changes.
The amendment results from Regulation (EU) 2016/1011 of the European Parliament and of the Council on indices used as benchmarks in financial instruments and financial contracts or to measure the performance of investment funds and amending Directives 2008/48/EC and 2014/17/EU and Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 (BMR).
- We have modified the personal data processing purposes stipulated in the GDPR clause. We will process these data also for the purposes of developing, monitoring and changing internal approaches as well as approaches and models relating to prudential requirements, including operational risk.
- We have added new important reasons for the termination of a Bank Account Agreement by mBank.
- We have added to the Regulations new chapter 10 entitled “Special Terms and Conditions of Serving Payment Institutions, Electronic Money Institutions, Small Payment Institutions and Payment Service Offices”. It applies only to (potential and existing) clients who hold a valid authorisation to operate as a payment institution, an electronic money institution, a small payment institution or a payment service office.
Publication date of the amended Regulations: 2 July 2021
