Information we collect from you
Generally, we collect personal information about you directly from you and our business partners. We do so when you become a customer, open an account, or perform a transaction with us (and/or our business partners).
The kind of information we collect will vary according to whether, for example, you wish to open a transaction account, use an accounting or bookkeeping software service or act as a signatory.
When you subscribe to our products and services, we and our business partners collect your personal information – including your name, email, phone number, Australian business number, customers, transactions, such as payments to and from your transaction account and the details of those payments, including source and destination. We collect this information via our business partners such as, but not limited to:
Our business partners have “KYC” and “KYB” obligations under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Act 2006. “KYC” stands for “Know Your Customer” and “KYB” stands for “Know Your Business” which means we are required to pass certain information to our partners so that they can verify that you are who you say you are and so they can comply with their obligations to monitor account and transaction activity. Our partners use additional third parties that specialise in cross checking your information and provide results to our partners and in turn, us.
When you subscribe to our products and services, we usually ask for, at least, your full name, date of birth, residential address, contact details and Australian business number. If you are subscribing as a corporate or other entity, we will ask for details of that entity, including beneficial ownership and the names and personal details of office holders. In all cases, we will also ask for evidence of your identity. In all cases, we may collect further information at any time on our own behalf or on behalf of our partners so that they meet their obligations under the KYC requirements of the anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism legislation.
