All your personal data is subject to modern data protection legislation. Additionally banks follow the principle of secrecy. Bank privacy is a legal principle under which banks are allowed to protect personal information about their customers.

However, while most jurisdictions offer very high levels of confidentiality, they cannot guarantee you absolute secrecy as all financial institutions worldwide have a legal obligation to report suspicions of serious criminal conduct - e.g., terrorism, money laundering, association with a criminal organization, theft, blackmail.

Depending on domestic legislation, banks may also be obliged to disclose personal data to the Court or to the local authorities.
