2. Credit Management Policy
Struddys Apparel Co is committed to protecting the privacy of your credit information and credit eligibility information (collectively referred to as “credit data” in this Credit Management Policy).
This Credit Management Policy explains how Struddys Sports handles such credit data.
Struddys Sports does not provide consumer credit, but it provides commercial credit to some of its wholesale customers. In the course of assessing applications for commercial credit, credit data on individuals may be collected (for example, this may occur if a customer carries on business as a sole trader, or if a personal guarantee is provided in support of a credit application).
Generally speaking, credit data is information used to assess an individual's eligibility to be provided with credit. It may include details of credit provided to you, repayment history information, and certain details regarding overdue payments or defaults.
2.1 Collection of credit data
The kinds of credit data that Struddys Sports collects and holds may include:
• identification information (which may include your full name, previous name, alias, date of
birth, gender, current and last known address and two previous addresses, the name of your
current or last known employer, and driver’s licence number);
• a copy of documents that include such identification information (such as your driver’s
licence, birth certificate or passport);
• consumer credit liability information (which may include information about existing credit
provided to you such as the name of the credit provider, the type of credit, when it was
provided, the terms and conditions that apply, the maximum amount of credit available, and
the day on which the credit was terminated);
• repayment history information (which may include whether or not you have made a payment
on time, when it was due and when it was paid);
• details of previous applications for credit made by you;
• default information (which relates to certain overdue payments);
• payment information (which relates to when such overdue payments were made);
• court proceedings information (which relates to court judgements about credit provided to
• personal insolvency information (for example, if you are declared bankrupt);
• publicly available information relating to your credit worthiness; and
• any opinion of a credit provider that you have committed a serious credit infringement.
Credit information may be collected by Struddys Sports Wholesale:
• directly from you;
• from a credit reporting body (such as Veda Advantage); and/or;
• from other parties (for example, other credit providers) where permitted by the Privacy Act.
If you do not provide or agree to the collection of the credit data requested, we may be unable to assist any business you operate or represent (for example, we may not be able to approve any application such a business makes for credit facilities).
Struddys Sports usually derives, from credit data disclosed to Struddys Sports by a credit reporting body (such as Veda Advantage), information including internal assessments and calculations based on such credit data for the purpose of assessing credit applications received by Struddys Sports.
Struddys Sports collects, holds, uses and discloses credit data in order to conduct its business, to provide its products and services and to meet legislative and regulatory requirements. This generally involves, but is not limited to, collecting, holding, using and disclosing credit data to:
• assess a customer's eligibility for credit and credit worthiness. In particular, Struddys Sports may use
your credit data to determine the eligibility for credit of a business you operate or represent;
• monitor and adjust credit limits for customers or revoke the provision of credit;
• administer customers’ orders and accounts;
• facilitate collection of overdue accounts; and
• resolve complaints.
Struddys Sports will not sell your credit data to any third parties.
It is unlikely that Struddys Sports will disclose your credit data to overseas recipients.
2.3 Credit reporting bodies
Personal information provided by us to credit reporting bodies such as Veda Advantage may be included in reports provided by credit reporting bodies to other credit providers, to assist them to assess your credit worthiness.
If a customer fails to meet its payment obligations or commits a serious credit infringement, we may be entitled to disclose this information to credit reporting bodies. A serious credit infringement includes:
• fraudulently obtaining a loan;
• fraudulently evading (or attempting to evade) obligations in relation to a loan; or
• an act that a reasonable person would consider indicates an intention to no longer comply
with obligations in relation to a loan.
You may contact a credit reporting body to request that it does not:
• use credit reporting information about you for the purpose of pre-screening of direct
marketing by a credit provider; or
• use or disclose credit reporting information about you if you believe on reasonable grounds
that you have been or are likely to be a victim of fraud.
You may obtain a credit reporting body's credit management policy by requesting a copy from them, or it may be available on their website.
2.4 Access to credit information
Struddys Sports takes reasonable steps to ensure that the credit data it collects, uses or discloses is accurate, up-to-date and complete.
If you believe any of your credit data held by Struddys Sports is incorrect or out-of-date you may make a written request to Struddys Sports seeking a correction. Struddys Sports will respond within a reasonable period after your request is made.
2.6 Storage of credit data
Struddys Sports takes reasonable steps to store your credit data securely, and has policies and procedures intended to ensure that your credit data is not misplaced or misused, and that unauthorised access to, or modification or disclosure of, your credit data does not occur. Credit data may be held by us electronically or in hard copy form, and we employ security protections appropriate for the form in which that information is held (eg, passwords linked with authorised user access and physical document security).
Struddys Sports undertakes periodic reviews of its policies and procedures with guidance by Struddys Sports’s legal advisers to ensure that the credit data held is managed appropriately. Struddys Sports therefore reserves the right to amend this
Credit Management Policy at any time. You may obtain a copy of the current version of this Credit
Management Policy by contacting Struddys Sports Wholesale, or by accessing Struddys Sports’s web site.
If you believe that a breach of your privacy has occurred, we encourage you to contact Struddys Sports to discuss your concerns. Your complaint will be considered and dealt with by our Privacy Officer. If the breach is considered to be serious, the Privacy Officer may escalate the complaint internally within Struddys Sports. Please allow us a reasonable time to respond to your compliant.
