How we collect personal information from other sources

We will only collect personal information from other sources where it is reasonably necessary for us to do so in relation to or in connection with your loan application and your loan (if your loan application is approved and we lend you the money to make the purchase of art from a participating art gallery). Examples of such sources of personal information include:
When the law authorises or requires collection of personal information
There are laws that affect organisations that require us to collect and disclose your personal information. For example, we are required to collect and disclose your personal information for assessment and verification under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Cth) and any rules, regulations or guidance notes made under or in connection with that Act (“AML/CTF Act”). We are entitled to request personal information from you in regards to compliance with the AML/CTF Act from you even if such information was previously sought and provided. You must comply with any request we make in this regard and if you do not provide the requested information we may be required to take action, including delaying or refusing the processing of any loan application, making funds available to you to purchase art from a participating gallery or disclosing information that we hold about you to our related bodies corporate, service providers or relevant government bodies and regulators including AUSTRAC (which is the body responsible for anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism compliance in Australia).

How we share your personal information
Sharing information with credit providers
We can seek from and use or give to another credit provider any information including relating to your credit worthiness, credit standing, credit history or credit capacity. In particular, we or any insurer we use may seek an opinion from a credit provider or a Credit Reporting Body and such person is authorised to provide an opinion on you.
Sharing information with third parties
We may seek from and use or disclose information about you to third parties in relation to: considering your application for credit; administering your loan; exercising rights under your credit contract; or, any insurance policy an insurer issues to us relating to your loan. These third parties may include:
Sharing information with Credit Reporting Bodies
We can give to a Credit Reporting Body personal information (including overdue payments) about you including to allow a Credit Reporting Body to create or maintain a credit information file about you. A Credit Reporting Body may include information about you in reports that it gives other organisations (such as other credit providers) to help them assess your credit worthiness.
We will only share any credit information about you with a Credit Reporting Body if that body has a business operation in Australia and is unlikely to share credit eligibility information with organisations that do not have business operations in Australia.
Some of the information held by a Credit Reporting Body may reflect adversely on your credit worthiness, for example, where you fail to make payments or if you commit a series credit infringement (like obtaining credit by deception / fraud). If information of this nature is held on your credit file then this will likely materially affect your ability to obtain credit from other credit providers in the future.
Currently we deal with the Credit Reporting Bodies disclosed in the Schedule. Each Credit Reporting Body also has a policy about how they handle information about you. You should be able to obtain a copy of their policy by contacting them directly.
If you believe that you have been or are likely to be a victim of fraud (including identity fraud) you can request a Credit Reporting Body not to use or disclose the information they hold about you for a prescribed period of time (currently 21 days).
Sharing information with related companies
We may share information about you with our related companies for the purposes described above.
Sharing information outside of Australia
We may store information about you in cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage. As electronic or networked storage can be accessed from various countries through an internet connection it is not always practical to know in which country information about you may be held.
We will take reasonable steps to ensure that any overseas organisation that receives your personal information will comply with the Act.
If you do not provide personal information
If you do not provide your personal information to us, it may not be possible:
Information about other people
If for any reason you give us personal information about any other person in relation to the loan application or the loan:
Anonymity and pseudonymity
We are not able to deal with a loan application if you do not wish to identify yourself. However, where possible we will provide information of a general nature such as for example, in relation to the products and services we supply, to unidentified individuals via our website.
We take reasonable steps to protect all information which we hold (including any personal or sensitive information) from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
Marketing and opt-out
