Information Disclosure and Communications Under the SPAM Act 2003
You are informed that Section 16 of the Spam Act provides that Financr cannot communicate with you via a “commercial electronic message” (email, fax, SMS)without your consent. As you would expect, for speed and convenience, where possible and with your permission, Financr would prefer to communicate with you using such electronic means. Without your permission, written communications will have to be conveyed by Australia Post.
The Electronic Transactions Act 1999
You are informed that the Electronic Transactions Act requires that, before Financr can communicate with you electronically (email, fax, SMS), you also have to give permission under that Act for Financr to communicate with you in that way. We seek your permission to send you electronic messages, rather than providing paper copies. You are informed that, in giving this permission, you are agreeing to:
(a) use the relevant computer programs and have sufficient internet capacity to interact with Financr’s system;
(b) regularly check your email Inbox and/or fax machine and/or SMS Inbox;
(c) not blame Financr if any properly sent electronic message does not reach you; and
(d) notify Financr of any changes to your electronic addresses, and absolve Financr of any liability if you fail to do so.
We remind you that you can withdraw your permission for the above at any time, provided you give Financr 24 hours' notice, confirming your current address and contact details.
Information Disclosure Under the Commonwealth Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Legislation
You are informed that, under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism FinancingAct 2006 (AML/CTF Act), there are provisions for AUSTRAC to seek personal information that you may have provided to us and under the law we must provide this information. Financr does not attempt to obtain identity verification, with or without reference to a credit reporting body, and provisions in the Act concerning identity verification and credit reporting bodies are therefore not applicable to Financr.
