In Compliance with Data Protection Policies SWIFT has decided to enhance its contractual documentation and to improve transparency with respect to the processing of message and traffic data. In doing so, SWIFT has been assisted by a working group of data protection and compliance experts from European and non-European SWIFT users. In December 2008, the Belgian data protection commission concluded that SWIFT complied with all applicable Belgian data protection legislation. UST Subpoenas After the attacks of September 11, 2001, the US Treasury Department (UST) launched the Terrorist Finance Tracking Program (TFTP). The TFTP program is ongoing and since the implementation of the new Distributed Architecture SWIFT receives and complies with valid and enforceable subpoenas for data located in its US Operating Center. Fighting illegal financial activities Given its importance in the financial community, SWIFT cooperates in good faith with authorities in the fight against illegal activities.
