About this policy and your privacy

The policy explaines how we can collect, use, hold and disclose your personal information, as well as ensure the quality, integrity, and security of your personal information under applicable Privay Laws.

What is personal information?

Personal information includes any information or opinion, about an identified individual or an individual who can be reasonably identified from that information. The information or opinion will still be personal information whether it is true, or not and regardless of whether we have kept a record of it. Some examples of personal information may include your:

  • Name;
  • Mailing or residential address details;
  • Contact details such as telephone numbers, email address, social media platform user name;
  • Government issued identifiers such as National Identity Card numbers, driver’s license numbers, etc.
  • Bank account and credit card details;
  • Credit history, credit capacity, ability to be provided with credit or credit worthiness.
  • Photograph, video or audio recording; and
  • Sensitive information such as information relating to your health, biometric data, criminal history, racial or ethnic origin.

What kinds of personal information do we collect and hold?

The personal information that we collect about you will depend on the products or services that you apply for, or enquire about. If you do not allow us to collect all of the personal information we reasonably request, we may not be able to deliver those products or services to you.

Throughout the life of your product or service, we may also collect and hold additional personal information about you. This could include transaction information or making a record of queries or complaints you make and, if you make an insurance claim, collecting additional information to assess the claim.

Our collection of ‘sensitive information’, a special type of personal information under the specified Privacy Laws, is further restricted to circumstances where we have obtained your express consent and to certain other permitted situations.

Generally, we only collect this sort of information if it is reasonably necessary to provide you with a specific product or service and you expressly consent to our collection. For example, we may collect health information about you to process a claim under an insurance policy or to assess certain claims, including hardship, or we may collect voice biometric information to verify your identity or authorise transactions.
