We are committed to providing quality services to you and this Policy outlines our ongoing obligations to you in respect of how we manage your Personal Information.


We have adopted the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (“the Privacy Act”). The APPs govern the way in which we collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information.

Collecting Personal Information

Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual.

This may include names, addresses, dates of birth, contact numbers, email addresses, property ownership details, lot numbers, unit entitlement details, driver’s licence details, credit information and history, banking details, income details, taxation information, credit card information, other financial details.

This Personal Information is obtained in many ways including interviews, correspondence, by telephone and email, via our websites and from third parties.

Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. Such as when we conduct credit checks through credit reporting bodies, various public domain databases, or when we make enquiries through the Titles Office.

In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.

Use of Personal Information

We collect your Personal Information for the primary purpose of providing our services to you, providing information to our clients and marketing. We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure.


You have the option to opt-out of receiving marketing communications from us. If you do not wish to continue to receive electronic marketing communications from us and/or selected third parties you should opt-out by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link in any email communications that we might send you.


When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties:

  • Where we have your express permission to do so;
  • Where it can reasonably be inferred from the circumstances that you consent to the disclosure to the third parties;
  • Where required under the Owners Corporation Act 2006 and or to ASIC;


Where we have to disclose your personal information to third parties in order that we can provide management services to you/ your owners corporation e.g.

  • a contractor to the owners corporation that provides maintenance to common property adjoining your lot);
  • To a prospective purchaser of your property who requires a certificate from us about the financial position of your lot;
  • To allow inspection or provision of the Owners Corporation Register;
  • If substantially all of our assets were acquired by a third party, in which case personal information which we hold about our customers may be one of the transferred assets (subject to the same constraints on use and disclosure as under this policy); and
  • If we have a legal right and/or we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal information including in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions; or to protect our rights, property, or safety or that of others.

We limit the information we provide to third parties to the information they need to help us provide or facilitate the provision of goods and services to you or your owners corporation.


To the extent required by law, we deal with third parties that are required to meet the privacy standards required by law in handling your personal information and use your personal information only for the purposes that we gave it to them.


Security of Personal Information
Your Personal Information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
