If you apply or subscribe for securities in Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited (ANZ), you will be asked to provide personal information to ANZ and its agents. ANZ and its agents will collect, hold and use that personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act and ANZ’s privacy policy, to assess and process your Application, to service your needs as a Holder, to provide facilities and services that you request, to carry out appropriate administration of your investment, to identify, prevent or investigate any fraud, unlawful activity or misconduct (or suspected fraud, unlawful activity or misconduct) and to identify you or establish your tax status under any Australian or foreign legislation, regulation or treaty or pursuant to an agreement with any tax authority. ANZ and its agents may also collect, use and disclose your personal information to the extent required or permitted by the intergovernmental agreement entered into between the US and Australian governments to implement the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) dated 28 April 2014. Without this information ANZ would not be able to do these things. Company and tax laws, including the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act (Cth), the Financial Sector (Collection of Data) Act (Cth), the Corporations Act (Cth), The Taxation Administration Act (Cth) and the Income Tax Assessment Act (Cth) requires some personal information to be collected.

To do these things, ANZ may disclose your personal information to its agents, contractors or third party service providers to whom ANZ outsources services such as mailing and registry functions. ANZ may also disclose your personal information to related bodies corporate or to their agents, contractors, third party service providers and regulatory bodies, government agencies, law enforcement bodies and courts.

You consent to ANZ and its related bodies corporate using your personal information to keep you informed about ANZ’s business activities, progress and development and bring to your attention a range of products and services offered by ANZ, including further offers of ANZ securities.
