PRIVACY POLICY


Reef Corporate Services Limited (ABN 66 057 599 621) as responsible entity for Reef Casino Trust (RCT) understands that privacy is important to you.

RCT follows the requirements of the Australian Privacy Principles which are contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (the Privacy Act) and which govern how private sector organisations handle personal information. 

Collection
Personal information means any information that can identify you. RCT may obtain personal information from individuals (eg unitholders). If you contact RCT, we may also keep a record of that correspondence. 

Personal information is also collected by RCT through its external unitholder registry, currently Computershare Investor Services Pty Limited. RCT requires Computershare to comply with the Australian Privacy Principles when performing these services. Personal information collected from unitholders includes: name, address details, telephone and mobile phone numbers, security-holding balances, tax file numbers, bank account details and e-mail addresses.

Details of Computershare’s privacy policy can be accessed through the following link:www.computershare.com/au/help/Pages/privacy-policies.aspx

Where reasonably possible, RCT will only collect personal information from the individuals themselves.

Use and disclosure
RCT’s policy is to use personal information only for the main business purposes for which it is collected, or related uses that would reasonably be expected.

The personal information collected from you may be used to provide you with our services or with other information you have requested.  Our policy is designed to maintain the confidentiality of all personal information held by RCT and prevent its misuse. 

RCT does not sell, rent or trade personal information to, or with, third parties.  In some circumstances, however, personal information may be disclosed outside RCT. For example:

  • For legal reasons, disclosures may need to be made to law enforcement agencies, government agencies, courts or external advisers; or
  • Personal information may be disclosed to third parties to whom RCT contracts out specialised functions, such as unit registry, mailing houses and printing companies. If so, we take steps to ensure that those contractors comply with the Privacy Act, and are authorised only to use personal information in order to perform the functions required by RCT.

RCT will not disclose your personal information to overseas recipients.

Information collected by the unit registry is used to carry out registry functions such as payment of distributions, sending annual and half yearly reports, notices of meetings or newsletters, and notifications to the ATO. In addition, contact information will be used from time to time to inform unitholders of information concerning RCT.

Data security
