Disclosure to the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) and government agencies: Under the AML/CTF Act, we are required to disclose information to AUSTRAC. From time to time law enforcement agencies, and other government agencies request information. We are required to provide this information, when and as required by law.
Disclosure to you or your Attorney: Our privacy disclosure and consent process is as follows. The customer or a person authorised under a valid Power of Attorney of the customer has personal information disclosed to them only once they have been properly identified and verified with approved identification and documentation. Information may be given to a customer’s Power of Attorney when they have been identified as such with an original or a certified copy of appropriate documentation. We reserve the right not to disclose any information until we are satisfied with the identity of the customer or the Attorney of the customer.
Disclosure to your authorised person: The customer may provide consent for their information to be disclosed to an authorised person. To allow this to happen we would need written authority by the customer and for both the customer and the authorised person to have been properly identified and verified with approved identification and documentation. In addition to this, we would need in-person confirmation that this disclosure is allowed. We reserve the right not to disclose any information until we are satisfied with the identity of the authorised person and the customer.

If it is, we will notify affected parties in accordance with Privacy Act requirements.
