How can I access or correct my personal information?
In most cases, you may access your personal information held by us. We will also correct any of your personal information held by us and that is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date if you request us to do so.

We will deal with all requests for access and correction, or any complaints, as quickly as possible and always in accordance with the Privacy Laws.

In rare cases, we may refuse to give you access to personal information that we hold about you. For example, this may be where providing you with access would:
- be unlawful (for example, where a record that contains personal information about you is subject to a claim for legal professional privilege by one of our contractual counterparties);
- have an unreasonable impact on another person’s privacy; or
- prejudice an investigation of unlawful activity.
If we ever have to refuse your request for access, then we will provide you with reasons why this is the case.
