We are committed to protecting your personal information. By submitting your personal information to us, or by using our services, you acknowledge and consent to us using your personal information in accordance with this policy.

This policy is intended to enhance the transparency of our company’s operations, notify you of your rights and our obligations and provide information regarding: 

the kinds of personal information which we will collect and hold; 

how we will collect, hold, use and disclose personal information; 

the purpose for which we collect, hold, use and disclose personal information;

This Privacy Policy sets out how we comply with our obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Act).  

Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that we must take reasonable steps when handling personal information.    

Whilst we cannot warrant that this policy will be followed in every instance we will endeavour to follow this policy on each occasion. Similarly, while we cannot warrant that loss, misuse, or alteration of information will never occur, we will take all reasonable steps to prevent these things from occurring.

Our company has taken reasonable steps to endeavour to comply with the APPs and the Act, some examples are noted below. 

Implementation of this privacy policy. 

Staff training and education.  

Use of checklists to ensure that all APPs are complied with. 

Clear and transparent procedures regarding the handling of complaints and disclosure of information.  

Our policy is available on our website however should you require a hard copy please contact us and we will provide you one.  

The kinds of personal information which we will collect and hold 

Collection

It is our usual practice to collect personal information directly from the subject individual or their authorised representative(s).  

Personal information means information or an opinion (including information or an opinion forming part of a database), whether true or not, and whether or not recorded in a material form, about an individual whose identity is apparent, or can reasonably be ascertained, from the information or opinion.   

Some examples of some personal information we might collect are: 

names; 

addresses; and

contact details (such as telephone numbers, addresses, and email addresses etc.). 

We use different types of technology to collect your personal information, including tracking technologies such as cookies.

Identification  

You may choose to interact with us using a pseudonym and/or not identify yourself.  

In circumstances where we are required to do so, or are authorised by law, a court or tribunal to ask for your identification, we will request your personal information.

Further it is likely that it will be impractical for us to interact with you without some form of identification, and therefore we will request identification details from you at the beginning of each transaction. 

For example, we will not be able to open an account for you without obtaining identification details. 

If you do not consent to the collection of your personal information, in accordance with this privacy policy, we may not be able to assist you with the provision of certain services.

How we will collect and hold your personal information 

We only collect and hold personal information by lawful and fair means. 

In some circumstances, we may collect and hold personal information that has been collected from a third party or publicly available source, such as:

social media platforms;

newspaper and magazine clippings;

business directories;  

company websites; and

telephone research.

This will likely occur in instances where:

you have consented for this collection (which would usually be through use of our services); or 

you would reasonably expect us to collect your personal information in this way; or

it is necessary for us to collect this information for a specific purpose (such as investigation of a complaint).   

We will take steps to hold personal information in a manner which is secure and protected from unauthorised access. 

Your personal information may be held in either a psychical form or in electronic form on our system. 

Where stored in electronic form on our system, we will take steps to protect the information against modification, disclosure, or misuse by including such things as physical restrictions, password protections, internal and external firewalls, and anti-virus software.
 
We will also endeavour to ensure that our service providers have protection for electronic systems and other necessary restrictions. 

We will endeavour to ensure our staff are trained with respect to the security of the personal information we hold, and we will restrict any access where necessary.  

While we retain personal information for as long as necessary in relation to the purposes for which it is collected, we will endeavour to destroy and de-identify the personal information once it is no longer required, except as required for business record purposes.

In the event we hold personal information that is unsolicited, and we were not permitted to collect it, the personal information will be destroyed as soon as practicable.  

If we collect personal information about you from someone else, we will advise you as soon as practicable that this information has been collected and the circumstances which surround the collection. 

Cookies and the collection of personal information via our website 

When you visit our website, we may collect information about the session between your computer and our website through the use of cookies.

Cookies are text files which are stored on your computer or mobile device (by your web browser) that record specific information, such as which pages you visit, the information you have searched for, or the device you are using to access our website.

You may elect to disable or turn off cookies in your web browser, however, this may impact upon the services we are able to offer you on our website and may impact upon your ability to access certain features of our website.

Our server will also automatically record your Internet Protocol address (IP address). 

An IP address is a numerical designation assigned to each device connected to a computer network by your internet service provider. While IP addresses can be used to identify the general physical location of a computer, they are otherwise anonymous, and we will not use your IP address to identify you.

The purpose for which we collect and hold personal information

We will endeavour to only collect and hold personal information which is relevant to the operation of our company and our business.    

Our purpose for collecting or holding personal information about you is so that it may be used directly for our business activities.   

We may use your personal information for the business activities of our company, which include, among other things: 

internal management purposes; 

administering accounts;

collecting overdue payments; 

facilitating product and service reviews;

business development and marketing purposes; 

sales and billing; 

insurance purposes; and

training and recruitment.

We may also collect personal information (including sensitive information) for both the primary purposes specified herein and purposes other than the primary purposes, including the purpose of direct marketing.  

We may also collect personal information from other credit providers, Credit Reporting Bodies (CRBs) and any other third parties for the purposes of our business activities including, but not limited to sales, marketing, and administration. 

The purpose for which we use and disclose personal information 

We will endeavour to only use and disclose personal information for the primary purposes noted above in relation to the business activities of our company.  

In addition, we may also use and disclose personal information (including sensitive information) for both the primary purposes specified herein and purposes other than the primary purposes, including the purpose of direct marketing. 

Unless one or more of the below scenarios has occurred, we will take necessary steps to prevent personal information from being given to government agencies or other organisations.   

You have provided your consent.  

You would reasonably expect that your information would be so disclosed. 

We have informed you that your personal information will be provided to a third party.  

We are required by law to provide your personal information to a government agency or other organisation. 

The disclosure of the information will prevent a serious threat to somebody’s life or health. 

The disclosure of the information reasonably necessary for the enforcement of criminal law. 

Further we will endeavour to only disclose personal information for the purpose in which it was collected, unless disclosure is reasonably necessary to: 

assist in locating a missing person;

lessen or prevent a serious threat to life, health or safety;

take appropriate action with suspected unlawful activity or serious misconduct;

facilitate or assist with diplomatic or consular functions or activities;

assist certain defence force activities outside Australia;

establish or exercise a defined legal or equitable claim; or

facilitate or assist confidential alternative dispute resolution activities.  

Direct Marketing and Third Parties 

We may also from time to time, if we have received your consent, provide your personal information to a third party for the purposes of direct marketing. 

You may at any time request the source of the personal information that has been disclosed.

Government Related Identifiers

We will endeavour not to use or disclose a government related identifier, unless:

the use or disclosure of the identifier is reasonably necessary for us to verify your identity for the purposes of our activities or functions; or

the use or disclosure of the identifier is reasonably necessary for us to fulfil our obligations to an agency or a State or Territory authority; or

the use or disclosure of the identifier is required or authorised by or under an Australian law or a court/tribunal order; or

a permitted general situation (as that term is defined in the Act) exists in relation to the use or disclosure of the identifier; or

we reasonably believe that the use or disclosure of the identifier is reasonably necessary for one or more enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body. 

Disclosure to CRBs 

As indicated above, we may disclose personal information to a CRB in accordance with the permitted disclosures as defined under the Act.  

We may disclose your Credit Information to the following CRBs listed below. 
	

A copy of the credit reporting policy for the CRBs listed above will be available on their website or will be provided in hard copy upon request.

How you may access your personal information 

You are entitled to access your personal information held in our possession. 

We will endeavour to respond to your request for personal information within a reasonable time period or as soon as practicable in a manner as requested by you. We will normally respond within thirty (30) days.

You will only be granted access to your personal information where we are permitted or required by law to grant access. We are unable to provide you with access that is unlawful. 

Further we are not required to, and will not, give access to personal information to the extent that:

we reasonably believe that giving access would pose a serious threat to the life, health, or safety of any individual, or to public health or public safety; or

giving access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of other individuals; or

the request for access is frivolous or vexatious; or

the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings and the information would not be accessible in normal discovery procedures; or 

giving access would reveal the intentions of us in relation to negotiations and this disclosure would prejudice those negotiations; or

denying access is required or authorised by or under an Australian law or a court/tribunal order; or

we have reason to suspect that unlawful activity, or misconduct of a serious nature, that relates to our functions or activities has been, or may be engaged in; or

giving access would be likely to prejudice the taking of appropriate action in relation to the matter; or

giving access would be likely to prejudice one or more enforcement related activities conducted by, or on behalf of, an enforcement body; or

giving access would reveal evaluative information generated within us in connection with a commercially sensitive decision-making process.  

If we refuse access to the information, written notice will be provided to you setting out: 

the reasons for the refusal (except to the extent that, having regard to the grounds for the refusal, it would be unreasonable to do so); 

the mechanisms available to complain about the refusal; and

any other matter prescribed by the regulations.

Correction 

Should we hold personal information, and it is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant, misleading, or incorrect you have the right to make us aware of this fact and request that it be corrected. 

If you would like to make a request to correct your information, please contact our office on the details above.  

In assessing your request, we need to be satisfied that the information is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, irrelevant, or misleading. We will then take all reasonable steps to ensure that it is accurate, up-to-date, complete, and not misleading.   

It is our normal policy to resolve any correction requests within thirty (30) days. If we require further time, we will notify you in writing and seek your consent. 

Should we refuse to correct your personal information written notice will be provided to you setting out: 

the reasons for the refusal (except to the extent that, having regard to the grounds for the refusal, it would be unreasonable to do so); and

the mechanisms available to complain about the refusal; and

any other matter prescribed by the regulations. 

We will endeavour to notify any relevant third parties of the correct personal information where necessary and required.  

Notifiable Data Breaches

A Notifiable Data Breach is an event where access to your personal data has been gained and there is a risk of serious harm or it is suspected that there is a serious risk to you.

In the event of a Notifiable Data Breach, we will notify you. Examples of Notifiable Data Breaches include:

loss or theft of physical devices (such as laptops and storage devices) or paper records that contain personal information;

unauthorised access to personal information by an employee; and

inadvertent disclosure of personal information due to ‘human error’ (e.g. an email sent to the wrong person).
