As a result of receiving an excerpt from bank account with Bank and Insurance Society Joint Stock Company's marketing offer enclosed, Mr X lodged with the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection, hereinafter called the Inspector General, a complaint pertaining to the processing of his personal data for the purposes of marketing of products and services of the third entity. On the basis of contract which was concluded between Mr X and Bank the latter was legitimated to process Mr X's personal data for the purposes of marketing of its own products and services. Whereas forwarding by the Bank joint marketing offer was not an action covered by the requirements of the exercise of the contract. In order to process Mr X's personal data for the purposes of marketing of products and services of Insurance Society Joint Stock Company the Bank should have had relevant consent of Mr X.

In connection with the above the Inspector General ordered by means of an administrative decision to restore proper legal state in the course of Mr X's personal data protection by blocking the processing of his personal data for the purpose of marketing of products and services of the third entity.
