This privacy statement sets out how Evolution Financial Pty Ltd ("we", "us", "our") collects, holds, uses and discloses your personal information. It also sets out how you can access the information we hold about you.
Collecting Your Personal Information
Your personal information will be collected and held by us for the purposes of:
- providing you with the advisory services that you have requested;
- managing our relationship with you;
We will need to find out your individual objectives, financial situation and needs before we recommend any financial product to you. You have the right not to divulge this information to us, if you chose to do so. In that case, we are required to warn you about the possible consequences of us not having your full personal information and our advice will be limited to this. You should read the warnings carefully.
This information includes:
- your name, contact details and date of birth;

- details of your investment preferences and risk tolerance/profiling;

- any other information that we deem necessary.
How Your Personal Information is Held
We keep a record of your personal information on our computer database, which along with your personal information may include details of your investment objectives, financial situation and particular needs. On your request, we can provide you with a copy of your personal information and advice documents, which we keep on record for no less than 7 years. If you believe any of the personal information that we hold is inaccurate we will update as requested by you.
We will seek to ensure that we take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information we hold is protected from misuse and from unauthorised access, modification and disclosure. We will also take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify personal information that we no longer need for any purpose for which may be used or disclosed under the Australian Privacy Principles.
For quality control and training purposes, we may monitor or record your communications with us.
Disclosing Your Personal Information
We may disclose your personal information to third parties (service providers and agents) who provide services to us, in which case we will seek to ensure that the personal information is held, used or disclosed consistently with the Australian Privacy Principles. We may also disclose personal data in order to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation or where you have consented to the use or disclosure.
Organisations outside Australia
Currently, we do not share your information with organisations outside Australia. We may however store your information in the cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage. As this electronic information could be accessed from various countries (via an internet connection), it’s not always practicable to know in which country your information may be held.
