If all the requested information is not provided, the Buyer may not be able to open a credit and/or consignment account or purchase Goods on credit from the Seller. Information collected and held about the Buyer and each Individual may be used from time to time for credit assessment and control and debt recovery purposes, to register any security interest granted to the Seller, for marketing and promotional purposes and generally to do business with the Seller. Information (including default information) may from time to time be disclosed to, and collected from, the Buyer’s trade references, credit reporting agencies, debt collection agencies and other companies in the Seller’s group of companies (the ‘Group’) for credit assessment and control and debt recovery. Information disclosed to credit reporting agencies (including default information) will be held by each agency on its system accessed by the customers of the credit reporting database and used to provide its credit reporting services (including the maintenance of credit information files and supplying the information to other customers of the relevant credit reporting agency). Under the Privacy Act 1993, Individuals have rights of access to, and correction of, their personal information.
