This information may include (but is not limited to) your name, date of birth, driver’s licence number, marital status, phone number, email address, address, nationality, employment history, income, assets, liabilities and repayment history information.
Due to the nature of the services provided by us, some of the information we collect may be sensitive information.

We will only collect sensitive information about you with your consent.

Why We Collect Your Personal Information
We collect and receive personal information about you in order to conduct our business, including assessing and obtaining approval for loans and other products, or accrediting you as a broker or introducer of loans and other products (if applicable) and accepting investments. From time to time we may offer other products and services.
We also collect and use personal information (including credit information) about you if we are assessing whether to make a loan to a borrower where you have offered to act as guarantor. If you are applying for a loan or provide a guarantee we may also collect the ages and number of your dependants and cohabitants, the length of time you have resided at your current address, your employment details and proof of earnings and expenses.
How We Collect Your Personal Information
Personal information may be collected by us in a number of circumstances, including when an individual:
Where reasonable and practical we will collect your personal information only directly from you. However, we will also collect information about you from third parties such as from our contractors who supply services to us, through our referrers (such as mortgage originators and brokers), from a publicly maintained record or from other individuals or companies as authorised by you. From time to time we may also purchase lists containing personal information about individuals from organisations offering such lists for marketing purposes.
If you do not provide the information requested by us, we may not be able to provide you with our services.
If you provide personal information to us about someone else, you must ensure that you are entitled to disclose that information to us and that, without us taking any further steps required by privacy laws, we may collect, use and disclose such information for the purposes described in this Privacy and Credit Reporting Policy. For example, you should take reasonable steps to ensure the individual concerned is aware of the various matters detailed in this policy. The individual must also provide the consents set out in this policy in respect of how we will deal with their personal information.
We may also collect credit-related personal information about you as a result of credit checks that you authorise us to carry out.

By providing us with your personal information, you consent to us disclosing your information to such entities without obtaining your consent on a case by case basis.
Sometimes we are required or authorised by law to disclose your personal information. Circumstances in which we may disclose your personal information would be to a Court, Tribunal or law enforcement agency in response to a request or in response to a subpoena or to the Australian Taxation Office.
We may from time to time transfer personal information outside Australia in accordance with the Privacy Act to countries whose privacy laws do not provide the same level of protection as Australia’s privacy laws. For example, we may transfer your personal information to the Asia-Pacific, European Union or the United States of America. We may also use cloud storage and IT servers that are located offshore.
By providing us with your personal information, you consent to us disclosing your information to entities located outside Australia and, when permitted by law to do so, on the basis that we are not required to take such steps as are reasonable in the circumstances to ensure that any overseas recipient complies with Australian privacy laws in relation to your information.
Statement of Notifiable Matters
The law requires us to advise you of ‘notifiable matters’ in relation to how we may use your credit-related information. You may request to have these notifiable matters (and this policy) provided to you in an alternative form.
We may exchange your credit information with credit reporting bodies. We use the credit-related information that we exchange with the credit reporting body to confirm your identity, assess your creditworthiness, assess your application for finance or your capacity to be a guarantor and manage your finance.
The credit reporting body may provide the information that we report about you to other credit providers to assist them to assess your credit worthiness. We may also obtain information that other credit providers have provided to the credit reporting body to use in our assessments of your credit-worthiness.
The information we can exchange includes your identification details, what type of loans you have, how much you have borrowed, whether or not you have met your loan payment obligations and if you have committed a serious credit infringement (such as fraud).
If you fail to meet your payment obligations in relation to any loan that we have provided to you, or any loan that we have arranged for you, or if you commit a serious credit infringement, we may disclose this to the credit reporting body.
You may access the credit information that we hold about you. Please refer to the section titled ‘Accessing your Personal Information’ below. You may also request that we correct any credit information that we hold about you if you believe the information is out-of-date, incomplete, or incorrect. Please refer to the section titled ‘Updating your Personal Information’ below.
The information that we provide to a credit reporting body may sometimes be used for ‘pre-screening’ of direct marketing offers to be made by another credit provider. You may contact the credit reporting body to request that your credit information is not used in this way.
You may also contact the credit reporting body to request that they not use or disclose the credit-reporting information they hold about you if you consider that you may have been a victim of fraud or if you believe on reasonable grounds that the information they hold about you is out-of-date, incomplete or incorrect.
