I was looking at four banks in one country, which are based in France, Belgium and 2 in Austria, and I was looking for something that would make me choose one over the other... So I thought what's important for me, and it is privacy and my private data security.
I am of course looking at the branches, since I mentioned they are all are just in one country, so I am also wondering - does it even matter where the bank is based if I would be signing up just for its branch that is in another European country?
I am European citizen myself, so I would like to focus this question for European citizens.
Please edit the question if there's something wrong with it - I seem to ask questions in a wrong way for this website often, hah. :-)
