Information collection

Personal information means information we hold about you where your identity is either clear or can be reasonably determined. When you give us your personal information, it imposes a serious responsibility on us. Protecting your privacy when handling your personal information is very important to us and is fundamental to the way we serve you.

Generally, we will collect personal information directly from you, and only to the extent necessary to provide the product or service you requested or to carry out our internal administrative operations. In addition to the information you provide to us, we may collect information for the purposes of identification and verification.

We will collect personal information from you by lawful and fair means.

If you choose to not provide your personal information when requested, we may not be able to deliver the product or service that you have requested. We will endeavour to make this as clear as possible for each service.

Information sharing

The Australian Doctors’ Fund does not sell or rent your personal information to marketers or third parties or anyone else.

We will only use your personal information for purposes related to the products or services we provide to you or for any purpose you might reasonably expect for the information. It is your decision whether you wish to engage in a business relationship with us. We are required to inform you that we may release information about you in the following circumstances: where there is a duty to the public to disclose that information, where we are required by law or where our interests are threatened.

What organisations are collecting the information?

In addition to our direct collection of information, our third party service vendors (such as credit card companies, clearing houses and banks) who may provide such services as credit, insurance, and escrow services may collect this information from our visitors and authorised customers. We do not control how these third parties use such information, but we do ask them to disclose how they use personal information provided to them from visitors and authorised customers. Some of these third parties may be intermediaries that act solely as links in the distribution chain, and do not store, retain, or use the information given to them.
