The privacy of your personal information is of upmost importance to us. Please note these important aspects of OnMarket.
OnMarket may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
This policy is effective from 1 February 2019.
We collect your personal information directly from you most of the time, however on occasion, we may also collect information about you from other people and organisations.
We collect personal information when you:
While we are required to collect some types of personal information to meet our legal obligations, we do attempt to keep our collection of your personal information to what is necessary to offer you the products and services you require.
When you apply for financial products issued by a company or entity, Chapter 2C of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) requires information about you as a potential shareholder or unitholder to be collected. This includes your name, address and details of the financial products that you apply for. If your application is successful, this information will then be included in the public register of the company or entity in which you bought shares or units. This information is collected to administer your share or unit holding. If you do not provide all of this information, it may not be possible to complete an application for those financial products.
Many offers of financial products requires client identification to be verified prior to the shares or units being allocated. We have engaged GB Group plc and its group companies including GBG (Australia) Pty Ltd (branded greenID) as a 3rd party ID verification service.
We do not hold member identification details (such as Medicare or your Driver’s License) on our secure OnMarket server, unless a manual verification is required.
We store transaction information about transactions that you have made using our products and services.
We may ask you your preferences for the types of offers, businesses or securities that you are most interested in, and whether you are a retail, experienced, sophisticated or professional investor under the Corporations Act. We may ask you socio-demographic information, such as your gender identity, marital status, age, gender, and occupation. If you provide this information, we store it.

If you register your interest in a particular upcoming offer, we may provide your details to the company or entity making the offer.
We may also use personal information for purposes that are related to the primary purpose of collection. Such secondary purposes enable us to do the following things.
OnMarket may provide aggregated anonymous information about bidders and financial product applications made through its service in order to promote its services. The recipients of aggregated information may include potential issuers and their advisers, share registries, regulators, ASX or NSX and other persons involved in the business of capital raising.

All information you provide is stored on secure servers. Only authorised employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. However, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
All information provided by you on the OnMarket website or mobile application will not be provided to overseas third parties (unless you are applying for shares in a company that is domiciled overseas, in which case it will be disclosed in the offer document). However, if the particular offer requires the identity of the applicant (you) to be verified, and if you provide verification information from a country other than Australia, it is possible that greenID may transfer personal information to a country which is a member country of the United Nations or a country having observer status at the United Nations.
