Privacy

We are always conscious of the need to respect your personal privacy. However, the services we
provide require an open and honest reveal of personal information that we must collect in order to
provide you an open and honest service. Most of this information we will collect directly from you. We
will need to verify some of this information so you should know that we may also collect your personal
information from other sources where there is a need to do so. We only collect personal information
that is relevant to your application. If you do not provide us with your personal information or consent
to accessing other sources of collecting your personal information, we may not be able to provide you
with our services. Part of our service requires sharing and the passing on of your information to others.
Eg Lenders, Insurance providers and third parties that are not limited by any specific description but are
relevant to assist in meeting your requirements and objectives. This sharing will be sensitive to
information that is of a “needs only” basis and you consent to this.
You may ask for access to any of your personal information held by us at any time.
If we assist you with a credit service, we are obliged under law to store the information we collected to
arrive at our Preliminary Assessment for a period of 7 years. You may request a copy of this document

that are not unsuitable to you and your situation. To assist you with your application to obtain finance
in a timely manner, you should endeavour to get any information that we require quickly and accurately
and the information that you give to us must be true and correct and complete to the best of your

knowledge. You must not be deceptive or misleading in any way by withholding information or non-
disclosure of information that may affect your ability to service a loan now or in the future.

Fees and charges

We may charge you a fee for the credit assistance we provide. The actual fee depends on the extent of
work we need to undertake on your behalf. We will provide you with a quote containing the details of
our fees in our credit proposal we present to you prior to your acceptance of the credit we have
obtained. This fee will be payable at the time the funds are released by the credit provider. No fee is
charged if you do not accept the credit proposal.

Our advice may be limited under law to the provision of advice relating to Credit Products and Credit
Services. Therefore, we may work alongside colleagues in the hope that together we can make a
difference. To assist you further, we have formal arrangements with several third parties who may
refer us or we may refer our customers to seek their professional advice. We may receive a referral
fee (or pay a referral fee) up to the maximums agreed. These are not fees paid by you directly or
indirectly and how much of the maximum we receive will generally depend on the work we input.

representatives) receive commissions from the credit providers involved. We may receive the following
commissions when we provide credit assistance to you:
– Upfront Commission.
– Additional Commission depending on the total volume of business we place with the credit
