It’s the information about an individual by which their identity can be reasonably determined.
Why do we collect personal information?
We collect personal information so that we can:
We provide your personal information to other related companies in the Group. These companies may use and disclose your personal information for the purposes described above in relation to products and services they provide to you. They may also use your personal information to provide products and services to other customers, but they will not disclose your personal information to any other customer without your consent.
What happens if you don’t give us your personal information?
If we ask for your personal information and you don’t give it to us, we may not be able to provide you with any, some, or all of the features of our products or services available to you.
At all times, we will respect and protect the privacy of your personal information.
We use and disclose your personal information for the purposes we collected it. We will use and disclose your personal information for related purposes where you would reasonably expect us to.

We disclose your personal information and/or collect personal information about you from persons overseas. We do this if you ask us to or a law requires or authorises us. When disclosing your personal information overseas we will always respect and protect the privacy of your personal information.
We also disclose your personal information overseas to other companies in the Group, where a business function is outsourced or if we need to complete an electronic transaction or any other transaction on your behalf.
How can you access your personal information?
Simply give us a call to request access. Sometimes we might not be able to provide some of your personal information. If this happens we’ll tell you why. If it looks like it might take longer to retrieve your personal information than we first expected, we’ll tell you when it should be available. For some detailed requests we may charge a fee to cover retrieval costs.
Using your personal information to market to you.
We and the other companies in the Group would like to use and disclose your personal information to keep you up to date with the range of products and services available from us and the Group. Where we can, we will ask for your consent to market to you. We will not market to you if you have declined consent. Other companies in the Group will not market to you if you have told them otherwise.
However, we may not always be able to ask you for your consent. If we have not asked you, we and other companies in the Group will use and disclose your personal information for marketing purposes until you tell us or the other relevant company otherwise. This includes using your personal details such as your address, email, mobile or home phone number as a means of communicating with you.
If you have multiple products and services with different companies in the Group, you will need to tell each of those companies that you no longer wish to receive marketing from them.
If you have a complaint
If you have a complaint about the privacy of your personal information, we ask that you contact us. We endeavour to resolve all disputes promptly and fairly. If however, you are not satisfied with the outcome, you may refer your complaint to the Federal Privacy Commissioner.
