Sharing personal information with Ox Securities’ affiliates and-non affiliated third parties

Ox Securities does not sell, license, lease or otherwise disclose your personal information to any affiliate or third party for any reason, except as described below. Ox Securities may share information with affiliates if the information is required to provide the product or service you have requested or to provide you the opportunity to participate in the products or services our affiliates offer. To help us improve our services to you, we may engage another business to help us carry out certain internal functions, such as account processing, fulfilment, client service, client satisfaction surveys or other data collection activities relevant to our business. We may also provide a non-affiliated third party with client information from our database, including your name, address, phone number, and/or e-mail address, to help us analyse and identify client needs, notify clients of product and service offerings or conduct general marketing and market research for us.

Ox Securities also forges partnerships and alliances with-non affiliated third parties which offer high-quality products and services that might be of value to our clients. To ensure that these products and services meet your needs and are delivered in a manner that is useful and relevant, Ox Securities may share some personal information with these non-affiliated third parties. We generally require that all non-affiliated third parties to which we provide your non-public personal information agree to keep your information confidential and use such information solely for the limited purpose for which we have engaged them, or as otherwise required by law. In addition, where offers are made to you by non-affiliated third parties, we generally require that they disclose that the offer is being extended because of your relationship with us. We also seek to ensure that these non- affiliated third parties maintain appropriate data security procedures to guard against unauthorised use of, or access to, your personal information.

When required by law, Ox Securities reserves the right to disclose your personal information to third parties or regulatory, law enforcement or other government authorities. We may also disclose your information to credit reporting or collection agencies, or when necessary to protect our rights or property. If at any time you choose to purchase a product or service offered by another company, for example by clicking on an advertisement on a website owned or controlled by Ox Securities Pty Ltd, any personal information you share with that company will no longer be controlled under our Privacy Policy. We are not responsible for the privacy policies or the content of sites we link to and we have no control over the use or protection of information provided by you to, or collected by, those websites. Whenever you elect to link to a co-branded website or to a linked website, you may be asked to provide registration or other information. Please note that the information you are providing is going to a third party, and you should familiarise yourself with the privacy policy published by that third party.

The security of your personal information

We employ security software, systems and procedures to offer you a safe and secure trading environment and to protect your personal, financial and trading information. When you open an account with us, you are issued a unique account number, User ID and a password. Only a limited number of Ox Securities employees who have a need to know this information will have access to your account number, User ID, and password. Remember that you are ultimately responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your account number, User ID and password. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose this information to anyone.

Your personal information may also be held on our computer database. All computer-based information is protected through the use of access passwords. Data is backed up regularly and stored securely off site. Personal information will be treated as confidential information and sensitive information will be treated highly confidential. It is a legislative requirement that we keep all personal information and records for a period of 7 years. Should you cease to be a client of ours, we will maintain your personal information on or off site in a secure manner for 7 years. After this, the information will be destroyed.

Access to your personal information

You can contact us to request access to your information. In normal circumstances we will give you full access to your information. However, there may be some legal or administrative reasons to deny access. If access is denied, we will provide you with the reason. We also have an obligation to be reasonably certain that the information we hold on file for you is accurate and up-to-date. Please contact us if you believe information we hold about you may be incorrect, inaccurate or out of date.

Your rights
At any time, you can:

  • Request to learn what Personal Information we hold about you.
