If you don’t provide the information we ask for, this may mean you are unable to open an account with us or use the services we offer.
Sharing your personal information
We may provide your personal information to our employees, related companies, contractors, advisors, agents regulators, exchanges, courts and other third-parties (including financial institutions), where permitted by or we believe this is appropriate to help us with any of the purposes we have outlined above. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that those recipients do not use that personal information for any other purpose.
We may release personal information when we believe this is appropriate for legal compliance and law enforcement, or will help prevent fraud, money laundering or other crimes (including to government agencies with statutory law enforcement responsibilities). To avoid doubt, we may disclose certain personal information where required under the NZX Rules, Clearing and Settlement Rules or Depository Rules.
We can release personal information to third parties as instructed by you and in other ways permitted by the Privacy Act.
Right to access your personal information
Where we receive information about others from you
If you provide us with personal information about someone else, you must ensure that you have their consent to do so (including their consent to Jarden contacting them), so that, without us taking any further steps required by applicable data protection or privacy laws, we may collect, use and disclose such information for the purposes we have described in this policy.
This means you must take reasonable steps when providing personal information so that the individual concerned is aware of and/or consents to this policy, including that:
- their personal information is being collected;
- the purposes for which that information is being collected;
- the intended recipients of that information;
- the individual's right to obtain access to that information; and
- our identity, and how to contact us.
