How we collect your PI

In the majority of cases, we will collect your PI directly from you when you apply for a finance product and this is referred to as ‘solicited information.’ Where you consent for us to do so, we can also collect your PI from third parties, such as employers, accountants, banks or referrers (who may simply provide us with your contact details.) Through our website as detailed above in this document.

Why do we collect your PI and how do we hold, use and who do we disclose it to?

We collect your PI to provide you with finance products you’ve requested. If we proceed with providing finance products to you, we will hold your PI for a period of seven years after the finance contract has ceased. After that period, we will delete the PI we no longer require.

We disclose your PI to the following sources, including but not limited to:

  • financiers;
  • insurers;
  • credit reporting bodies in order to obtain credit information about you;
  • your employer, bank, solicitor or accountant to verify the information you’ve provided us;
  • the supplier (e.g. motor vehicle dealership) from where you are purchasing the asset where applicable; and
  • your referees or contacts if we are unable to contact you.

How we deal with individuals who remain anonymous or use a pseudonym?

You have the option of not identifying yourself or of using a pseudonym when dealing with us. For example, if you contacted us with a general enquiry about our products, services or the financiers or insurers we have on our panel, you don’t need to identify yourself.

However, if you elect to apply for a finance product, you will need to identify yourself, as your PI is required to support a finance application.

How we deal with solicited information

We will only collect information from you or from a third party with your consent, that is reasonably necessary for our main function or activity, that is, any activity related to a finance and or insurance application. Whilst we generally don’t collect sensitive information, we will only do so if it is related to our main function or activity and we obtain your consent to collect it.

How we deal with unsolicited information

If we receive PI about you that you did not solicit, we will determine if we could have obtained this information by lawful and fair means. An example may be where we obtain information about you from your accountant or solicitor. However, if we determine we would be unable to collect the information by lawful and fair means or if the information is not reasonably necessary for our main function or activity, we will destroy or permanently de-identify the information.

Notification of the collection and use of personal information

When we collect PI directly from you, we will advise you of the purposes for which it was collected, who it will be disclosed to and why, how you can access your PI and seek its correction or how you can make a complaint if you believe your PI was not handled in accordance with this policy or the APPs.

In circumstances where we collect PI from a third party about you, we will inform you of that collection and if the PI is reasonably necessary for our main function or activity, how we intend on using it and who we will disclose it to.

Direct marketing and how you can opt-out of receiving marketing material

We may use the PI we collected from you for the purpose of marketing about additional products or services available to you, both via our group and third parties. These marketing activities may be conducted via e-mail, telephone, social media platforms, SMS, mail or any other electronic means. We won’t sell your PI to any organization outside our group.

If you do not wish to receive marketing material from us, you can opt out and any time but simply sending an e-mail to info@demarquefinance.com and we will update our records and systems accordingly. Alternatively, you can mail us at DEMARQUE GROUP POBOX 54 Kogarah NSW 1485 and advise us you no longer wish to receive marketing material. Generally speaking, we will stop sending direct marketing material to you within 30 days of receiving the request.

Use and collection of government related identifiers

As part of the finance application process, we may collect government related identifiers from you that appear on certain documents. Examples of government related identifiers include, but are not limited to:

  • Driver’s Licence numbers;
  • Passport numbers; and
  • Tax File Numbers.

We won’t use a government related identifier to identify you or your application, as generally we will use your name and / or an application number.

When providing certain finance products to you, we may be required to disclose certain government-related identifies, such as a Driver’s Licence number to a financier, which forms part of their identification process.

However, there are specific requirements relating to Tax File Numbers. Under the Tax File Number Rule 2015, TFNs should only be collected under superannuation, taxation and personal assistance laws. We will take all reasonable steps to permanently de-identify any TFN that appears on a document we have received from you, your employer or accountant.

How we ensure your PI is up to date and accurate

We will make every reasonable effort to ensure that the PI we hold about you is accurate, up to date and complete. However, if any of your PI needs to be updated, please contact us (refer to the Contact Us section of this policy) and we will update it for you.

How do we keep your PI secure?

We take the security of your PI seriously and as information is stored both electronically and in hardcopy format, we have a variety of safety measures in place to protect your PI from misuse, modification, interference, loss, unauthorized access or disclosure. Some of the safety measures include, but are not limited to:

  • confidentiality agreements requirements of our employees and external representatives;
  • document storage security policies;
  • security measures for access to our systems;
  • only giving access to PI to authorized staff and representatives who require access to such information;
  • premises security; and
  • electronic security systems such as firewalls and data encryption.

Where we store PI physically or electronically with third party data storage providers, we have contractual arrangements to ensure those providers take appropriate security measures to protect that that information and restrict those who access it.

How can you access your PI and seek its correction?

If we hold PI about you, we must provide you with access to that information upon receiving a request from you. However, there are certain circumstances where we may not provide you with access to your PI, such as:

  • we believe there is a threat to life or public safety;
  • there is an unreasonable impact on other individuals;
  • the request is frivolous;
  • the information wouldn’t ordinarily be accessible because of legal proceedings;
  • it would prejudice negotiations with you;
  • it would be unlawful;
  • it would jeopardise taking action against serious misconduct by you;
  • it would be likely to harm the activities of an enforcement body (e.g. the police); or
  • it would harm the confidentiality of our commercial information.

If we can’t provide the information you’ve requested, we will advise you in writing as to the reasons and how you can make a complaint.

If you believe the PI we hold about you is inaccurate, out of date, incomplete, or irrelevant, please contact us and we’ll update it.

How do you make a complaint?
