Fubon Financial Holdings Customer Information Confidentiality Measures
Fubon Financial Holdings and its subsidiaries (the “Fubon Group”) are dedicated to delivering a comprehensive range of financial products and services based on four core values – integrity, sincerity, professionalism, and innovation – in a secure transaction environment. Committed to customer privacy, the Fubon Group complies with the “Financial Holding Company Act,” the “Personal Information Protection Act,” “Rules Concerning Cross-Selling by Financial Holding Company Subsidiaries,” and other relevant regulations in collecting, processing and using customer information. Control mechanisms have also been put into place to ensure the confidentiality of customer information. The following are confidentiality measures adopted by the Fubon Group:
Collection of Information
The Fubon Group collects customer information for marketing activities and transactions. It does so with the customer’s consent or based on provisions in contractual agreements signed by the customer, according to existing laws. Public information and data disclosed by regulatory authorities or by authorized third parties is also collected.
Storage and Management of data
Customer information is securely stored in Fubon Group’s databases and managerial procedures are in place to prevent unauthorized access and maintain data security. Strict internal management guidelines have been established that prohibit people who have not received the proper authorization from accessing or amending customer information.
Security and Protection Measures
The Fubon Group uses information security technology to transmit and encrypt information, and firewalls are installed to prevent illegal intrusions, preventing customer information from being accessed illegally. Encryption technology is used to store and safeguard passwords and keep them from being stolen.
Classification and Usage of Personal Information
There are many types of customer information – basic information, account information, credit data, investment data and insurance information. These are described below, but Fubon Group units can add to or delete these categories depending on the specific nature of their business.

Customer information is exchanged and disclosed among Fubon subsidiaries for joint marketing activities according to applicable laws and regulations and the scope of information customers agreed could be used in applications submitted to a Fubon subsidiary or agreements they signed.
Purpose of Use of Customer Information
To provide customers with more complete, more diverse and more suitable financial products and services, the Fubon Group discloses, transfers or uses customer information for marketing activities (including cross-selling), for contracted services provided by third parties, or to comply with regulatory agency requests, subject to regulatory or customer approval.

Ways to Withdraw from Cross-Selling Activities
Customers can notify Fubon subsidiaries in writing, by email or by contacting customer service to request that their information no longer be shared for cross-selling activities. Once a Fubon subsidiary has received such a request, it will stop the exchange of the customer’s information for marketing activities as soon as possible within a reasonable number of business days.

Aside from public announcements, Fubon subsidiaries may also notify customers in writing or by email that their personal information being used in cross-selling activities has been changed or modified or is no longer being used for that purpose.
