Gresham recognises the importance of your privacy, and that you have a right to control how your personal information is collected and used.
- Collecting information about you
Gresham may collect personal information from clients, employees, contractors, shareholders and other individuals. Personal information Is information or an opinion relating to a natural person who is identified or reasonably identifiable. We collect this information when it is necessary for our business purposes.
The main types of personal information Gresham collects are names and contact details, such as addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses. In some circumstances, we are authorised by anti-money laundering laws, tax laws or the Privacy Act 1988 to collect other information about you, such as your securityholder reference number (SRN) or tax file number (TFN). We may also collect information about your criminal record where this is necessary to comply with anti-money laundering laws.
We collect most of this information directly from you where possible. This information may be provided by you in forms you fill out, in face-to-face meetings, in e-mail messages you send us, via our website, or during telephone conversations. In some cases we may collect your personal information from:
- publicly available sources of information, such as public registers, LinkedIn and other online networks or platforms;
- our service providers, such as credit reporting bodies and companies that provide fraud prevention reports or identity verification services;
- other organisations who, jointly with us, administer a Gresham managed fund;
- your agents and delegates, such as a broker, legal representative, persons holding a power of attorney; or
- a bank.
If you contact us, we may keep a record of that contact.

If you do not provide us with personal information we request from you, we may be unable to provide you with our full range of services.
- Using and disclosing your personal information
In some cases, we may be required to disclose your personal information to regulators, such as AUSTRAC or the Australian Taxation Office.
We use service providers to help us maximise the quality and efficiency of our services and our business operations. This means individuals and organisations outside of Gresham, such as mail houses and IT service providers, such as website hosts and back-up service providers, will sometimes have access to personal information held by Gresham and may use it on behalf of Gresham. We require our service providers to adhere to strict privacy guidelines and only use this information for authorised purposes.
Gresham may also disclose personal information to one or more third parties located outside Australia (such as in the United States) or that have overseas or cloud-based data access or storage, with whom it has a business relationship. By providing your personal information, you will be deemed to have provided your consent to the disclosure of your personal information to entities located outside of Australia and to have acknowledged that Gresham is not required to take reasonable steps to ensure that an overseas recipient does not breach the Australian Privacy Principles and Gresham may not be liable under the Privacy Act if the recipient does not act consistently with the Australian Privacy Principles.
Gresham will otherwise only use or disclose personal information about you:
- for any other purpose communicated to you at or near the time your personal information is collected;
- as permitted or required by law;
- if we believe it necessary to provide you with a service you have requested;
- to implement our terms of service;
- to protect the rights, property or personal safety of another Gresham client, any member of the public or Gresham;
- if some or all of the assets and operations of the business are or may be transferred to another party by way of sale of some or all of the business; or
- if you have provided your consent.
- Employee information

In some circumstances and if you consent, Gresham may collect sensitive information about you, such as information about your health, membership of a professional or trade association, or criminal record, where appropriate and where this is reasonably necessary for one of our functions or activities.
When you provide your personal information to us, we may use this information, such as your email address or telephone number, to contact you on an ongoing basis in order to:
- provide you with updated information about our products and services; or
