The CDF collects the following personal information from its members - name, address, date of birth, gender, tax file number and 100 points of acknowledged identification. The Fund needs this information to maintain their records in a format that allows them to identify their members. Without this information the Fund could not operate properly and it would be impossible to provide members with the necessary level of service they require. Indeed, the Fund may not be able to provide members with products and services at all without this information.
Collection of Personal Information
The above information is generally collected when a member opens an account using an account application form. Occasionally the Fund may ask members to update their personal information to ensure their records are accurate.
How The Fund Uses Personal Information
Your personal information is only used to provide you with the products and services you've requested from the Fund. It will only be used for the purposes for which you tell the CDF it can be used, or to contact you to respond to your needs or enquiries.
Transfer of Information
Your personal information will be treated with respect and will not be provided to any individual or organisation unconnected with the CDF without your express written consent, unless we are required by law to do so. Sometimes a member's personal information may be transferred to or handled by:
- The Fund's auditors;
- Government bodies, such as the Australian Tax Office;
- The member's accountants, solicitors or other professional advisers they have authorised to act on their behalf.
The Fund does not sell or rent out any of the personal information it holds and protects the security of that information in accordance with regulatory requirements.
Access to Personal Information
You have a right to access your personal information at any time. You may also request that the Fund update your personal information if it is ever inaccurate or incomplete.
