By asking us to provide you with our financial services, you consent to the collection and use of the information you have provided to us for the purposes described above.
The information we collect
We only use your information for the purpose for which it was provided to us, related purposed and as permitted by law.
We will usually provide some or all of this information to our product suppliers to allow us to provide advice to you, and arrange financial services on your behalf. Some of these product suppliers may be located outside Australia.
When a claim is made under an insurance policy, to enable us to assist in the claim process, we and our representatives and those of the insurer (including loss adjusters, investigators, medical advisers and lawyers) collect information about the claim, some of which may be personal information. We may collect the information from you or from third parties.
We provide this information to the insurer and or their agents and those appointed to assist you in making a claim. Again this information may be passed on to your underwriters and reinsurers. We may use your personal information internally to help us improve our services and help resolve any problems.
In some circumstances, we may also collect sensitive information (such as medical conditions and criminal records) which are required to obtain insurances on your behalf.
We can only apply for and arrange financial service products if we have all relevant information. The insurance laws also require insureds to provide all the information required by the end insurer to help them decide whether to insure you and on what terms. Credit Providers also require specific information to help them assess any credit applications that we may facilitate on your behalf.
Security of your information
We hold the information we collect from you in our computer system and in our hard copy files. We ensure that your information is safe by following the usual security procedures expected by our clients.
How we disclose your information
We may disclose information to:
- Financial institutions, other Australian Financial Service Licensees, insurers, underwriters, underwriting agencies, wholesale brokers and reinsurers (for the purpose of seeking recovery from them or to assist them to assess insurance risks);
- Premium funders / Credit providers for the purposes of gaining quotations on and arranging funding of your insurance premiums / financial investments.
- An investigator, assessor, State or Federal Health Authorities, lawyers, accountants, medical practitioners, hospitals or other professional advisors (for the purposes of investigating or assessing your claim);
- A lawyer or recovery agent (for the purpose of defending an action by a third party against you or for the purpose of recovery costs including your excess);
- Contractors who supply services to us, e.g. to handle mailings on our behalf;
An immediate family member;

Some of these parties may be located overseas for example, Lloyds of London syndicates or brokers and other overseas based insurers and intermediaries or in situations where we utilise “Cloud Computing” services that are situated outside Australia
In all such cases we commit to making reasonable enquiries to ensure that these organisations comply with their local privacy legislation where such legislation is comparable to the Australian legislation and to comply with the key components of Australian Privacy legislation in cases where their local legislation is considered inadequate or non-existent.
However, you acknowledge, by agreeing to the disclosure of your information to these entities outside of Australia, we will no longer be required to take reasonable steps to ensure overseas recipient’s compliance with the Australian privacy law in relation to your information and we will not be liable to you for any breach of the Australian privacy law by these overseas recipients and, on this basis, you consent to such disclosure.
Accuracy, access and correction
We take reasonable steps to ensure the information we collect and hold about you is accurate, complete and up to date. However, we rely on you to advise us of any changes to your information or corrections required to the information we hold about you.
