4) If not, considering that your bank have some people running nonfree

The issue Richard is pointing to with IndieGogo is that non-free
software is mandatory to use the service (make a donation).

As I said, I didn't ask about the IndieGoGo issue.

I was putting things in context to explain why the issue with
IndieGogo is not as much of an issue anymore when it comes to banking.

Even if a
bank uses non-free software on its website, and unless it's a 100%
online bank, you can still use their service (make a deposit,
transfer, or withdraw money) by going to the bank and talking to a
person, so nobody forces non-free software on you.

But if all the tools used to do your/the bank transactions run nonfree
software it can be an issue, as fair as I can see (and as far as I
understand we should avoid it instead of just ask for a layer of free
software running).

Can you be more explicit about what you mean with "tools used to do
your/the bank transactions run nonfree software"

5) If we don't find any bank that can provide a service without run a
nonfree software, what would be your recommendation?


Didn't get what you mean by moot.

I meant that given my answer to question 4, question 5 did not stand anymore.
