Overseas transfer of information

We don't knowingly disclose Personal Information, Credit Information or Sensitive Personal Information (if provided by you) to any third party service providers who are located outside Australia.

We believe third parties we use to store, process and transmit information have appropriate privacy policies in place but we are not able to enforce their compliance with Australian privacy legislation. We are not an entity required to comply with Australian Privacy Principles but, if we were, section 8.1 of the Australian Privacy Principles would not apply to the disclosure by us (directly or indirectly) of your Personal Information, Credit Information or Credit Eligibility Information to a third party or to an overseas third party due to the above disclosure.

By submitting your Personal Information, Credit Information or Credit Eligibility Information to us and having been advised section 8.1 of the Australian Privacy Principles does not apply to our disclosures of this information either directly or indirectly to overseas third parties, you consent to our disclosure of that information to us and other parties knowing your information may be disclosed to overseas third party service providers over which we have no control to ensure compliance with the Australian Privacy Act.
