  • Identification and contact data: client number (which might record the name or address of a natural person)
  • Financial data relating to a SFT


Source of data

The European Central Bank obtains the SFT information from the European Securities and Markets Authority, which in turn receives it from registered trade repositories.

Retention period

Personal data shall be retained for the time necessary to fulfil the purpose for which they were collected and to allocate any liability arising from said purpose and from the processing of the data.

Security measures

Pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding executed by the joint controllers (see “Joint Controllers” below), the ECB shall operate the IT infrastructure that hosts SFTDS and shall put in place the corresponding safeguards. The remaining joint controllers shall solely be responsible for the security of the personal data they access or download to their systems.

To this end, the personal data accessed by the Banco de España or downloaded into its systems are subject to the security measures set out in Annex II of Royal Decree 3/2010, of 8 January, which regulates the National Security Scheme in the field of Electronic Administration.
