Certain services available through RentPay are provided by third parties, so additional privacy policies may apply to those parties.
Collection of information
Some information provided to us by clients, customers, contractors and other third parties is personal information as it relates to identifiable individuals. Without these details we would not be able to carry on our business and provide our services to you.
In particular, personal information may be collected in the following situations by RentPay:
We collect both current and historical personal information which may include information about:
At or before the time the personal information is collected by us we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of who we are, the fact that you are able to gain access to the information held about you, the purpose of the collection, the type(s) of organisations to which we usually disclose the information collected about you, any laws requiring the collection of the information and the main consequences for you if all or part of the information is not collected.
Use of information collected and disclosure of personal information to others
We use the information we collect from and about you to provide services and features to you, including:
When you are not reasonably identifiable in relation to the information collected from or about you it is not personal information and we may use that information for any purpose or share it with third parties. We may also de-identify the information we collect about you so that we can use and disclose it without using or revealing any personal information about you.
A number of companies participate in providing the RentPay service. Your banks, landlords or real estate agents do not gain access to any of your personal information that they don't already have as a result of their separate relationship with you as a customer. Our service sends an instruction to your nominated financial institution to debit your nominated account as instructed by you.
We use the information we collect from and about you for these additional purposes:
To provide our services. We use the information we collect from and about you to provide our services to you, to fulfil administrative functions associated with these services (for example record management and account management), to enter into contracts with you or third parties and for marketing and client relationship purposes. We may also use your information to improve our services including through research and data analysis by us and our service providers. Where your personal information is contained in a user generated post on our site or in social media, we may publish your name to identify you as the author of the comment/correspondence if we choose to publish comment/correspondence in any media. We may use and disclose your personal information in other ways expressly disclosed at the point of collection. If you are a competition winner we may disclose your information to relevant regulatory authorities and publish your details in accordance with the competition terms.
To allow service and content providers to assist us in providing and managing our services and features. RentPay may make your information available to certain third-party service and content providers, such as providers of data cloud services, website hosting service providers, debt collection services and direct marketing services, who help us manage or provide our services or provide us with related services. These third parties may be located in a range of different countries including the United Kingdom, United States of America and Singapore. RentPay generally requires these service and content providers to comply with relevant privacy laws and not to use personal information which we provide for any purpose other than the specific service they are providing to you and/or us.
To deliver relevant advertisements and content. We and our advertisers may use the information we collect from and about you to deliver relevant ads and content to you when you use the RentPay services or another service.
To contact you. RentPay may periodically send promotional materials or notifications which it believes might be of interest to you. Promotional materials may include invitations to participate in various activities (such as customer surveys) or special offers.
To share with business partners. Where you have expressly consented to this, we may share your information with business partners to permit them to send you marketing communications consistent with your choices.
To protect the rights of RentPay and others. There may be instances when we may disclose your information, including situations where we are authorised by law or we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to:
To complete a merger or sale of assets. If RentPay sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of its assets or is otherwise involved in a merger or transfer of all or a material part of its business, we may transfer or disclose your information to the party or parties involved in the transaction as part of that transaction and as part of any due diligence processes which take place in contemplation of a potential transaction.
RentPay may contain links to other websites or services and those third parties may collect personal information about you. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other businesses or the content of websites or services that are linked to RentPay.

Security and storage
RentPay places importance on the security of all information associated with our customers, clients and partners, whether stored in physical or electronic form. We will maintain all reasonable security measures to attempt to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control.
Information stored within our computer systems can only be accessed by those entrusted with authority and computer network password sanctions.
No data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 per cent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user's personal information, RentPay cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or from its online products or services, and users do so at their own risk. Once RentPay receives your transmission, it makes every effort to ensure it is security on its systems.
Personal and financial information is deleted or destroyed securely when no longer required by us.
RentPay retains the information you provide to us including your contact and credit card details to enable us to verify transactions and customer details and to retain adequate records for legal and accounting purposes.
You are solely responsible for keeping your passwords and/or account information secret. You should be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
Access to and correction of personal information
RentPay is committed to maintaining accurate, timely, relevant and appropriate information about our customers, clients and users.
So long as your request for your personal information is in accordance with applicable law (e.g. the Australian Privacy Principles), then we will give you access to that information.
Inaccurate information will be corrected upon receiving advice to this effect from you. To ensure confidentiality, details of your personal information will be passed on to you only if we are satisfied that the information relates to you.
If we refuse to provide you with access or correct the personal information held about you by us, then we will provide reasons for such refusal.
We will investigate your complaint and attempt to resolve any breach that might have occurred in relation to the collection, use or destruction of personal information held by us about you in accordance with the Commonwealth Privacy legislation. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of this procedure then you may request that an independent person (usually the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner) investigate your complaint.
Transfer of information overseas
Pursuant to the Australian Privacy Principles we may transfer personal information we have collected about you to someone other than you in a foreign country only if such transfer is permitted by the Australian Privacy Principles.
