Accessing your information and making a complaint
You have the right to access credit information about you and you can request that we correct any such information.
You can also make a complaint to us if you believe that we have not complied with the Privacy Act or the Credit Reporting
Credit reporting bodies offer a service to credit providers wishing to send direct marketing material about credit services to
individuals. This is called “credit pre-screening”. You have the right to request that the credit reporting bodies do not use your
information for this purpose. To opt out of credit pre-screening, contact the credit reporting body, using the contact details on
their website noted above.
You can also ask a credit reporting body not to use or disclose your personal information for a period if you believe on
reasonable grounds that you have been or are likely to be a victim of fraud.
The Privacy Act and the CR Code limit what we can do with the information we obtain from a credit reporting body. Generally, it
can only be used in relation to the consumer credit products you apply for through us.
