Collection of personal information

We must only collect personal information that is necessary for our functions and activities.

As a financial services organisation, we are subject to legislative and regulatory requirements that we obtain and hold the personal information of clients. Information we hold about you may include things such as your contact details, bank account details and tax file numbers. We will not collect any personal information about you unless you have knowingly provided that information to us or authorised a third party to provide that information to us.

There are certain situations in which we may collect personal information about you from someone other than you. For example, we may collect personal information about job applicants from recruitment agencies and referees. In either case, we will take any steps required by law to ensure that you are aware of the purposes for which the information is collected.

Use and disclosure of personal information

We use and disclose your personal information for purposes related to the main purpose for which the information was collected, where you have consented to the use or disclosure, or where otherwise authorised by law. These purposes may include carrying out or responding to your requests, improving our services, communicating with you, assessing your suitability for positions with AlternativeInvest, purposes relating to any third party acquisition or potential acquisition of an interest in AIM, or assets of AIM or its managed funds, or any other purposes outlined at the time you provide the information. We may not be able to do these things without your personal information. For example, we may not be able to contact you or offer employment to you.
We may provide personal information about you to:

  • service providers who assist us in providing our services and operating our business, including, but not limited to, organisations that assist us with registry, archival, research, mail and delivery, auditing, recruitment, payroll, superannuation, insurance, management consulting, financial and legal advisory, banking, security and technology services in their capacity as service providers to AIM;
  • where relevant, prospective employers and recruitment agencies who request verbal or written references in relation to current or former AIM personnel;
  • if you are an investor, your custodian, investment advisers, brokers and asset consultants; and
  • other third parties where required or authorised by law, which may include emergency situations and assisting government agencies. accessing and updating your personal information

We ask that you provide us with as much detail as you can about the particular information you seek, in order to help us retrieve it. An access fee may be charged where permitted by law. In certain circumstances, we may not be required by law to provide you with access or to correct your personal information. If that is the case, we will give you our reasons for that decision.

We take reasonable steps to make sure that the personal information we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date.

Security of personal information

Irrespective of whether personal information is stored electronically or in hard copy form, we must take reasonable steps to protect the personal information we hold from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.
