We recognise that your privacy is important.
We are committed to providing you with the highest levels of client service. The Privacy Amendment (Enhancing Privacy Protection) Act 2012 (Act) sets out a number of Australian Privacy Principles (APPs). Our aim is to both support and ensure that we comply with these principles.
Use and Disclosure
We are subject to certain legislative and regulatory requirements which necessitate us obtaining and holding detailed information which personally identifies you and/or contains information or an opinion about you. In addition, our ability to provide you with comprehensive financial advice and services is dependent on us obtaining certain personal information about you, which may include:
We will destroy or de-identify your personal information when it is no longer required.
Access and Correction
You have the right to access and request corrections to your personal information, subject to certain legal exceptions. We may not disclose confidential formulae or evaluative decision-making details but can provide results or explanations. We may charge a fee for searching and providing access to your information. If access is denied, we will explain the reason. We strive to maintain accurate and up-to-date personal information, but its accuracy largely depends on the information you provide. Please inform us of any errors in your data.
Our main purposes for collecting personal information are to facilitate financial services advice and to update our records. At or before the time we collect personal information from you we will take reasonable steps to inform you why we are collecting that personal information, who else we might disclose that personal information to and what may happen if you do not provide personal information to us.
Our website utilises cookies to enhance your online experience by personalising content and saving time. Cookies are text files placed on your hard disk by a web server and are unique to each user, but they cannot run programs or transmit viruses. They help websites remember your information and preferences for easy access during subsequent visits. While most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can modify your settings to decline them; however, this may limit your ability to fully interact with the website’s features.
In some circumstances we are required to collect unique identifiers, for example, your Medicare or tax file number. We will not use or disclose this information other than when required to do so by law or, or when consented to by you.
You may deal with us anonymously where it is lawful, practicable and reasonable to do so.
Without your consent, we will not collect sensitive information about you. Exceptions to this include where the information is required by law, or for the establishment, exercise, or defence of a legal claim.
