Big brother secures our transactions?

I'm at Germany for a meeting and i found out that i was out of money....
Well i thought this is easy, let's visit an ATM and get some. I went at the ATM after a few random clicks i was able to find the "English" button and i requested my money.
A few more clicks to find the "OK" button at the machine and there i had my money.
After a few minutes i received a phone call. The person introduced to me as member of the security incident team of my bank. Asked me if i got these money from Germany or if my card was stolen!
In one way i felt safe but ... do they really monitor what i do all the time???
I should also mention that all this happened at 3 a.m. Monday morning.
