1. Collection of Personal Information

  1.

  3. To supply services and support to customers and users of our platform;
  4. To obtain products and services from our service providers;
  5. To respond to enquiries from existing or prospective customers seeking information about our products or services;
  6. To process transactions and send notices to you and your service providers (including your accounting platform providers) about your transactions;

  21. A cash-in arrangement means an arrangement under which a Marmalade customer assigns and transfers to Marmalade its interest and rights to the payment of outstanding amounts owed to it under an invoice.
  22. We will only use or disclose Personal Information for a purpose other than that for which it was collected or a related purpose if you have consented to such different use or disclosure or such use or disclosure is otherwise allowed by the Privacy Laws.
  23. In carrying out our business, it may be necessary to share information about you with and between our related bodies corporate and organisations that provide services to us. Other than in relation to our service providers and partners as noted below, we would not otherwise routinely disclose Personal Information to another organisation unless:
  24. Required by law;
  25. We believe it is necessary to provide you with a service which you have requested;
  26. It is necessary to protect the rights, property or personal safety of any of our customers, any member of the public or our interests;
  27. The third party is a credit reporting body and the Personal Information disclosed is credit information or credit eligibility information;
  28. The assets and operations of our business are transferred to another party as a going concern; or
  29. You have provided your consent.

3. Credit information

  1. If we enter a cash-in arrangement with a Marmalade customer that covers you, we may collect credit information or credit eligibility information about you.
  2. We generally do not collect your credit information or credit eligibility information directly from you. However, we do collect credit information or credit eligibility information from public records or from third parties such as credit reporting bodies. Credit reporting bodies are companies that hold credit information about individuals which they provide to credit providers in certain circumstances (for instance, where an individual applies to a credit provider for credit).
  3. The credit information and credit eligibility information we may collect about you includes:
  4. Identification information (such as your name and address);
  5. Credit liability information (such as the name of the credit providers, the type of credit you hold and the amount of the credit);
  6. Repayment history information (information about whether you have made your repayments on time in relation to any credit you have received);
  7. Default information (information about any defaults or serious credit infringements);
  8. Court proceedings information (information about any court judgments against you relating to credit you have received);
  9. Personal insolvency information (information about any bankruptcy experienced by you); and
  10. Information disclosed in reports obtained from credit reporting bodies.
  11. We may use credit information and credit eligibility information that we collect for the purpose of assessing whether to enter a cash-in arrangement with a Marmalade customer in relation to you. We may also use that information for the purpose of exercising any rights we may have under our customer terms and conditions, and otherwise in accordance with section 2.2 above.
  12. Additionally, we may disclose your credit information and credit eligibility information to third parties. To the extent permitted by Privacy Laws, we will only share this information in accordance with section 2.5 above.
  13. If we use the services of a credit reporter or debt collection agency, we may exchange credit information about you with those agencies on an on-going basis (including information about your default and repayment history).

4. Service providers and partners

  1. Like most organisations, we use a range of service providers to help us maximise the quality and efficiency of our services and our business operations, and engage with a range of partners to optimise our business. This means that individuals and organisations outside of our organisation, such as accounting platforms, providers of KYC/AML search and investigation services (including Brontech), data hosting, storage and analytics providers, debt collection service providers and any other service providers we use to deliver our services or operate our business, will sometimes have access to Personal Information held by us and may use it on behalf of us.
  2. In particular, we will disclose financial information such as information about the invoices you send and receive, the payments you make and receive, your debt and payment profile and your outstanding obligations to pay invoices to your accounting software and services provider, to enable your accounting service provider to maintain an accurate picture of your financial position.
  3. We require our service providers to adhere to strict privacy guidelines and not to keep this information or use it for any unauthorised purposes.

5. Disclosure of information outside the jurisdiction of collection

  1. We may disclose Personal Information outside of the jurisdiction from which it was collected. In the conduct of our business, we and/or our service providers (including Brontech as our KYC/AML service provider) may transfer to, hold or access Personal Information outside Australia from various countries, including New Zealand, the United States, Singapore and countries in the European Union. The Privacy Laws of those countries may not provide the same level of protection as the Privacy Laws of the country from which the Personal Information was collected. However, this does not change our commitment to safeguard your privacy, and we will comply with all applicable laws relating to the cross-border data disclosure.

6. Direct marketing

  1. Like most organisations, marketing is important to our functions and activities. We may therefore, from time to time, send marketing materials to current or prospective customers. We only do so in accordance with applicable laws or with your prior consent.
  2. If you are receiving promotional information from us and do not wish to receive this information any longer, please contact us direct on 1800 CASHIN (1800 227 446) or and ask to be removed from our mailing lists, or use the unsubscribe facilities included in our marketing communications.
  3. Even after you’ve opted-out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still contact you for transactional or informational purposes. These include, for example, customer service issues, returns or product-related inquiries, outstanding payment inquiries, surveys or recalls, or any questions regarding a specific order.
