We recognise that our success depends on us maintaining the utmost commitment to upholding customers’ privacy rights when we collect, hold, use or disclose customers’ personal information. We have established procedures and protocols to help us keep personal information we hold secure, accurate, up-to-date and complete.

This Policy applies to and covers all operations and functions of Fundo Loans. All staff and third parties (including suppliers, sub-contractors and agents) that have access to or use personal information (which includes credit-related information) collected and held by Fundo Loans must comply with this Privacy Policy.

This Policy outlines our obligations to manage and protect personal information and reflects the requirements of the Australian Privacy Principles (‘APPs’), the Privacy (Credit Reporting) Code (‘the Code’) and Part IIIA of the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (“the Privacy Act”) and other relevant law.

We may collect the following types of personal information about an individual :

  • name;
  • address;
  • phone number;
  • date of birth;
  • employment details and pay advices;
  • bank account details and account statements;
  • passport, Driver’s licence or Medicare card details;
  • marital status and dependents;
  • credit-related information; and
  • any other information that is relevant to the services that we provide.

In most circumstances it will be necessary for us to identify an individual in order to successfully do business with them. However, where it is lawful and practicable to do so, we will offer an individual the opportunity of doing business with us without providing us with personal information, for example, if an individual makes general inquiries about interest rates or current promotional offers.


We generally collect personal information directly from the individual where it is reasonable and practicable to do so.

For example, we collect personal information when:

  • an individual enquires about or applies for credit; or
  • call us or send us correspondence.

Sometimes we may collect personal information about an individual from third-party sources, such as:

  • financial institutions;
  • mortgage and finance brokers;
  • employers;
  • accountants;
  • lawyers;
  • other credit providers;
  • electronic verification services;
  • a CRB;
  • social media; or
  • public registers

We may collect personal information about an individual when a person with whom the individual holds a bank account gives us information about that account.

We will not ask an individual to supply personal information publicly over Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media platform that we use.

When we obtain credit eligibility information from a CRB about an individual, we may also seek publicly available information and information about any serious credit infringement that an individual may have committed.

Fundo Loans may receive unsolicited personal information about an individual. We destroy or de-identify all unsolicited personal information, unless it is relevant to our purposes, under this Policy.


We collect personal information from our website, we receive emails and online account application forms.

When an individual uses our website we may collect information about their location or activity including IP address, telephone number and whether they have accessed third party sites, the date and time of visits, the pages that are viewed, information about the device used and other user location information.

We may also use Third Parties to analyse traffic at the website, which may involve the use of cookies. Information collected through such analysis is anonymous. For more information, please see our Website Privacy & Cookies Policy at [LINK]


We may collect and hold personal information to:

  • assist us in assessing an application for credit and managing that credit;
  • verify an individual’s identity and financial situation;
  • provide individuals with our promotional material and manage our relationship with an individual;
  • protect our business and other customers from fraudulent or unlawful activity;
  • conduct our business and perform other management and administration tasks;
  • bring, defend, or manage any legal action involving an individual and Fundo Loans;
  • comply with relevant laws, regulations and other legal obligations, including the National Consumer Credit Protection Act 2009; and
  • help us improve our products and services and to enhance our overall business.


  • The primary purpose for which personal information is collected is for providing individuals with credit and managing that credit.
  • Secondary purposes for personal information collection are related to this primary purpose, such as keeping individuals informed about changes to their loan, or new products and services.
  • Other purposes authorised by the Privacy Act may also apply.

We use and disclose personal information for the purposes outlined above. Sensitive information will be used and disclosed only for the purpose for which it was provided or a directly related secondary purpose, unless an individual agrees otherwise, or if certain other limited circumstances apply (e.g. where required by law).


We may disclose an individual’s personal information to:

  • a related entity of Fundo Loans;
  • prospective funders or other intermediaries in relation to an individual’s finance requirements;
  • to other organisations that are involved in managing or administering an individual’s finance, such as third party suppliers, printing and postal services, call centres, credit providers, mortgage insurers and trade insurers.
  • an agent, contractor or service provider we engage to carry out functions and activities in connection with approving or administering credit products or services, such as our electronic verification service, lawyers, accountants, debt collectors or other advisors;
  • associated businesses that may want to market products to an individual;
  • companies that provide information and infrastructure systems to us;
  • any person who represents an individual, such as finance brokers, lawyers, mortgage brokers, guardians, persons holding power of attorney and accountants;
  • borrowers (if more than one) or prospective borrowers including in relation to any credit an individual guarantee’ or proposes to guarantee.
  • organisations involved in a transfer or sale of all or part of our assets or business;
  • investors, agents or advisers, trustees, rating agencies or any entity that has an interest in an individual’s finance or our business;
  • our auditors, insurers, re-insurers and health care providers;
  • where we are authorised to do so by law, such as under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Cth), government and law enforcement agencies or regulators;
  • a CRB;
  • an individual’s financial institution/s, referee/s, employer, co-account holder or authorised signatory; and
  • anyone else to whom the individual authorises us to disclose it.

Prior to disclosing an individual’s personal information to another person or organisation, we will take all reasonable steps to satisfy ourselves that:

  • the person or organisation has a commitment to protecting an individual’s personal information at least equal to our commitment; or
  • the individual has consented to us making the disclosure.

If we intend to provide default information about an individual to a CRB, we will give that individual at least 14 days’ written notice of our intention to do so. If we disclose default information to a CRB, and the individual subsequently repay the amount owed, we will tell the CRB that the amount owing has been repaid. We will not disclose to an CRB credit repayment history information that is more than 2 years old or which relates to an amount owing of less than $150.


We will use and disclose an individual’s credit-related information only for the following purposes:

  • assessing an application by the individual for credit and managing that credit;
  • responding to questions in the course of an investigation by the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA);
  • exchange and sell customer data to credit providers;
  • purposes required or authorised by law.

The third parties we may disclose credit-related information to are outlined at clause 8.


We may disclose an individual’s personal information to overseas entities that provide support functions to us.

We will not send personal information to recipients outside of Australia unless:

  • we have taken reasonable steps to ensure the recipient does not breach the Privacy Act, the APPs and the Credit Reporting Privacy Code;
  • the recipient is subject to an information privacy protection regime similar to that required by the Privacy Act; and
  • the individual has consented to the disclosure.

We may also use cloud storage to store the personal information we hold about an individual. The cloud storage and the IT servers may be located outside Australia. The countries in which the cloud storage and IT servers are likely to be located include India, Nepal, Pakistan and The Phillipines.

An individual may obtain more information about these overseas entities by contacting us.


The APPs require us to take all reasonable steps to protect the security of personal information, including credit-related information. Fundo Loans employees respect the confidentiality of the personal information we collect.

We will take a range of measures and reasonable steps to protect an individual’s personal information.

An individual’s personal information will always be stored in a secure environment. We may store an individual’s personal information in paper and electronic form. We will also take reasonable steps to protect any personal information from misuse, loss and unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.


The law requires us to advise individuals of ‘notifiable matters’ in relation to how we may use credit-related information. An individual may request to have these notifiable matters (and this policy) provided in an alternative form.

We exchange individuals credit-related information with CRBs. We use the credit-related information that we exchange with CRBs to confirm an individual’s identity, assess creditworthiness, assess an application for finance, and manage that finance.

The information we may exchange with CRBs includes identification details, what type of loans an individual may have, how much that individual has borrowed, whether or not an individual has met their loan payment obligations, whether an individual has entered into a financial hardship arrangement (either with us or some other third party), and if an individual has committed a serious credit infringement (such as fraud).

If an individual fails to meet its payment obligations in relation to any finance that we have provided or arranged, or if they have committed a serious credit infringement, we may disclose this information to a CRB.

An individual has the right to request access to the credit-related information that we hold about them and make a request for us to correct that credit-related information if needed. See ‘Access to Personal Information’ below for further information.

Sometimes credit-related information will be used by CRBs for the purposes of ‘pre-screening’ credit offers on the request of other credit providers. An individual can contact the CRBs at any time to request that their credit-related information is not used in this way.

An individual may contact the CRBs to advise them that they believe that they may have been a victim of fraud. CRBs must not use or disclose that credit-related information for a period of 21 days after an individual notifies them that they may have been a victim of fraud. An individual can contact any of the following CRBs for more information:

  • we provide individuals with a simple way of opting out of direct marketing; and
  • an individual has not requested to opt out from receiving direct marketing from us.

If an individual would not reasonably expect us to use or disclose the information for the purpose of direct marketing, we may use or disclose that information for direct marketing only if the individual has consented to the use or disclosure of the information for direct marketing or it is impracticable to obtain that consent.

If we correct information that has previously been disclosed to another entity, we will notify the other entity of the correction within a reasonable period of time of the correction being notified to us. If we are satisfied that personal information we hold is inaccurate, we will take reasonable steps to correct the information immediately (if practicable) or within 30 days, We do not charge for correcting personal information.

If we refuse to correct personal or credit-related information we will provide an individual with our reasons for not correcting the information.


We will provide an individual with access to the personal and credit-related information we hold about them. An individual may request access to any of the personal information we hold about them at any time by contacting the Fundo Loans Privacy Officer.

We will provide access within 30 days of receipt of such request. If we refuse to provide access, we will provide reasons for the refusal.


A data breach occurs when personal information held by us is lost or subjected to unauthorised access or disclosure. If we suspect or know of a data breach, we will take immediate steps to limit any further access or distribution of the affected personal information or the possible compromise of other information.

When we have reasonable grounds to believe that a data breach is likely to result in serious harm, and we cannot mitigate the risk of serious harm with remedial action, we will notify individuals at likely risk as soon as practicable and make recommendations about the steps they should take in response to the data breach. We will also notify the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

Examples of serious harm include, but are not limited to:

  • identity theft;
  • significant financial loss; or
  • threats to physical safety.

Notifications will be made using our usual method of communicating with an individual, such as by a telephone call, email, SMS, physical mail, social media post, or in-person conversation. If we are unable to contact an individual (or nominated intermediary) by any of the above methods we will publish a statement on the front page of our website and place a public notice on our reception desk.

¹As soon as you sign your contract and if all other requirements have been met, we instantly send the funds to your nominated bank account. If your bank works with the New Payments Platform (NPP), most customers see funds in their account within 60 seconds. If your bank is not NPP enabled, or it is a weekend or a public holiday, the funds are usually received by the next business day. Fundo cannot guarantee that loan funds will be received within 60 seconds

²Applying for a loan with Fundo usually takes about 3 minutes. However, this time can change based on a few things, such as your typing speed, the device you're using, and whether you have all the necessary information ready to go.

³As the approval process is influenced by various external factors, we can't guarantee that you'll receive a decision on the same day. However, most of our customers do receive a same-day response to their application with Fundo, if they submit their loan application and all the requested supporting information by 4pm Sydney time during a regular business day.
