The Privacy Act defines ‘sensitive information’ as (among other things) information about a person’s racial or ethnic origin, religion, membership of political bodies, trade union or other professional or trade association, sexual preferences or practices, criminal record or health. Sometimes it may be necessary for the Company to collect sensitive information.
If you provide the Company with sensitive information, it is our policy that this information will be used and disclosed only for the purpose for which it was provided or another directly related purpose, unless you agree otherwise, or unless use or disclosure of this information is allowed by law.
The way we use tax file numbers and information received from a credit reporting body about an individual is also restricted by law.
Specific privacy conditions are as follows:
You may obtain access to, and correct, any personal information which the Company holds about you (including credit eligibility information), unless one of the exceptions in the Privacy Act applies.
To make a request to access information the Company holds about you, please contact in writing using the details listed below. The company will require you to verify your identity and to specify what information you require. The company may charge a reasonable fee to cover the cost of verifying the application and locating, retrieving, reviewing and copying any material requested.
If you seek access to credit eligibility information that we hold about you, we will endeavour to provide you with access within 30 days of your request (unless unusual circumstances apply). In order to ensure that you have access to the most up-to-date information, you should also request access to the credit reporting information held by credit reporting bodies about you.
Requests to correct credit information and credit eligibility information will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
If we are satisfied that the personal information is inaccurate, out-of-date, incomplete, irrelevant or misleading, we will take reasonable steps to correct the information within 30 days of your request, or such longer period as agreed with you in writing. In certain circumstances, we may need to consult with a credit reporting body or another credit provider to determine the accuracy or otherwise of the information.
If we correct personal information about you, we will give you written notice of the correction within a reasonable time period. We will also notify you in writing if we decide not to correct the information in accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act.
