You are informed that Section 16 of the Spam Act provides that CS/ACFS cannot communicate with you via an "electronic message" (email, fax, SMS) without your consent. CS/ACFS prefers to communicate with you using such electronic means.
I hereby agree that:
I attest that, prior to signing this agreement, I have been told by CS/ACFS representative that paper documents may no longer be given; and electronic communications must be regularly checked for documents; and consent to the giving of documents, by electronic communications, may be withdrawn at any time by giving 24 hours' business day notice in writing.
You are informed that, under the AML/CTF Act, there are provisions for the use of credit reporting information to assist in identity verification. By consenting to this section, you attest that CS/ACFS has informed you of the following statutory provisions.
Under Section 35A(1), this can include the electronic provision of your name &/or address &/or date of birth, as you may have provided to us, to a credit reporting body. This information can & frequently has to be provided to credit reporting bodies by CS/ACFS, for a matching process entailing comparison with personal information about you they already have on their files.
If there is no satisfactory match found &/or the level of verification which we must seek, as part of both our AML/CTF responsibilities & our mandatory credit unsuitability/suitability assessment process under the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009 & associated Regulations, is not achieved, we must give you the opportunity to verify your identity by alternative means.
In these circumstances, if you choose not to attempt to verify your identity by contacting the credit reporting body yourself, or by alternative means, or your contact with the credit reporting body is unsuccessful, or we determine that the alternative has failed to provide adequate identity verification, we cannot give you a loan. To do so would threaten our Australian Credit Licence.
If we are unable to verify your identity by the above means, the company will inform you, so that you might contact the verification company or credit reporting body to update your information they hold, or you may ask CS/ACFS to attempt to verify your identity by alternate means. Please note that we have to keep a record for 7 years, regarding which credit reporting body we contacted, the personal information we provided & the assessment with which we were supplied.
