3 Sharing information with Third Parties

Unless you have instructed us not to do so, personal information may be shared with related companies within Paycorp Holdings Pty Ltd, where it will remain confidential. We will only use the information that you provide to us to better understand your requirements and so provide information on products and services from Paycorp that are most relevant to you. Paycorp does not collect or compile personally identifiable information for the dissemination or sale to outside parties for consumer marketing. It will only disclose information when:

- required by the law, for example the Australian Taxation Office has the power to order us to disclose information on your accounts.
- it is authorised by law, for example to protect our interests or where we have a duty to the public to disclose.
- you have consented to our disclosing the information about you.
- it is needed to share in order to provide the product or service that you have requested.
- in certain circumstances Paycorp may rely on outside contractors to carry out specialised activities on our behalf such as the mail out of Paycorp Information, or the dispatch of high volume Internet messages, (e-mail)or short messaging service (SMS).

These outside contractors act on behalf of Paycorp and do not operate their own personal agendas whilst processing your personal information. At times personal information may be provided to these outside contractors to undertake the contracted task, all information remains the property of Paycorp at all times and the outside contractors are bound by specific confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements.

A number of companies participate in providing the Paycorp service. Your banks, landlords or real estate agents do not gain access to any of your personal information that they don't already have as a result of their separate relationship with you as a customer. Our service sends an instruction to your nominated financial institution to debit your nominated account as instructed by you. If Paycorp's customer service support is provided by a third party under a contract, this service provider would have limited access to your personal information to provide customer service support as initiated by you.

Financial institutions, merchants and other organisations serviced by Paycorp may have their own privacy policies and practices. The Paycorp Privacy and Security Statement do not cover these organisations. You should ask these companies directly for information about their privacy policy and practices.
