Credit reporting policy

Liberty may provide credit as contemplated in the Privacy Act to its customers in connection with the supply of petroleum products and, as a result, may collect credit information and credit eligibility information about you as referred to in the Privacy Act. This policy sets out how Liberty manages that information. This policy relates to Liberty companies deemed to be credit providers for the purposes of the Privacy Act.

How Liberty collect and holds credit information about you
Credit information relates primarily to your credit related dealings with Liberty including:

  • identification information
  • basic information about your credit account (for example when it was opened)
  • details about information requests Liberty make about you to by Credit Reporting Bodies (CRBs)
  • information about certain overdue payments and about serious credit infringements and information about payments or subsequent arrangements in relation to either of these
  • various publicly available information like bankruptcy and credit-related court judgements

Liberty may collect credit information about you in any of the circumstances relating to other personal information described in its privacy policy. Credit eligibility information is information equivalent to the kinds listed above that Liberty generally collect from CRBs.

This information relates primarily to your dealings with other credit providers (for example, banks, other financial institutions, or other organisations that may provide you with credit in connection with their products or services). It may also include certain credit worthiness information that Liberty receives from a CRB. Sometimes Liberty may also collect credit eligibility information about you from other credit providers.

Liberty stores and safeguards your credit information and credit eligibility information in the ways described in our privacy policy above.

How Liberty uses and when Liberty discloses your credit information.
Liberty may disclose your credit information to CRBs. Those CRBs may then include that information in credit reporting information that they provide to other credit providers to assist them to assess your credit worthiness.

Liberty may also use and disclose your credit information for other purposes and in other circumstances as described in our privacy policy above.

Liberty’s use and disclosure of credit eligibility information is regulated by Part IIIA of the Privacy Act and the Credit Reporting Privacy Code. Liberty will only use or disclose such information for purposes permitted by these laws, such as:

  • processing credit applications and managing credit that Liberty provide
  • assisting you to avoid defaults
  • collecting amounts you may owe us in relation to such credit and dealing with serious credit infringements
  • assigning our debts
  • participating in the credit reporting system
  • dealing with complaints or regulatory matters relating to credit or credit reporting
  • as required or authorised by another law.

How to access or correct your credit information or credit eligibility information
