Privacy Policy


The Renaissance Property Securities Pty Ltd (RPS) Privacy Policy details how we protect your privacy and how we comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act 1998 (Cth) and the 13 Australian Privacy Principles.

This policy document outlines how RPS will meet these privacy requirements, while recognising the need for RPS employees and external service providers (ESP’s) to manage personal information in an effective and efficient manner.

This policy also describes:

  • the kinds of personal information collected and held by us;
  • how this information is collected and held;
  • the purposes for which your personal information is held, used and disclosed;
  • how you may access your personal information and seek the correction of such information;
  • whether we are likely to disclose your personal information to any overseas recipients; and
  • how you may complain or inquire about our collection, handling, use or disclosure of your personal information and how that complaint or inquiry will be handled.
What kinds of personal information do we collect?

RPS only collects personal information that is necessary to assist us in providing our services to our clients. In the course of providing these services we may need to collect:

  • Personal Information including names, addresses, other contact details, dates of birth; and financial information.
  • Sensitive Information including government identifiers (such as your TFN), your nationality, country of birth.

You do not have to provide us with your personal information but if you do not provide this, we may not be able to provide our services to you or our clients on your behalf.

How do we collect and hold your personal information?

RPS may collect your personal information in different ways, including email, telephone, letters, application and redemption forms, and face to face meetings.

We may also collect information from third parties, such as fund administrators, custodians, consultants, trustees and/or anyone you have authorised to deal with us on your behalf.

We store personal information in a variety of formats including on databases, in hard copy files, on personal devices including laptop computers, in computer storage facilities both in-house and at our external services providers.

We take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information we hold about you from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. These steps include:

  • ensuring all staff are aware that they are not to reveal or share personal passwords;
  • implementing physical security measures at our premises to prevent break-ins;
  • implementing procedures designed to protect personal information storage on our computer networks; and
  • implementing human resources policies and procedures, such as email and internet usage, confidentiality and document security policies, designed to ensure that staff follow correct protocols when handling personal information.
For what purposes do we collect, hold, use and disclose personal information?

RPS only collects, holds and uses personal information for the purposes for which it was provided (which will normally be obvious at the time of collection), related purposes or as permitted or required by law. Such purposes may include:

  • establishing, maintaining and administering your account;
  • conducting verifications, monitoring and reporting required under the AML/CTF Laws;
  • recording tax information such as TFN, ABN, country of residence in order to report to the ATO (and other relevant bodies as required by law) and withhold tax correctly from payments;
  • communicating with you or your custodian/consultant regarding the status of your unit/share holdings, value, distributions or responding to your and/or your custodian/consultant’s enquiries/information requests;
  • processing authorised payments to and from you;
  • providing you and/or your custodian/consultant with the services requested; and
  • any other uses identified at the time of collecting your personal information.

These purposes may require us to disclose your personal information to our external services providers such as our investment administrator or custodian.

How to gain access to your personal information we hold

You may access the personal information we hold about you, or request that we change the personal information, by contacting the person referred to in the section entitled “To Contact Us” below.

Disclosure of your personal information to overseas recipients

RPS may also subcontract to companies located in countries outside of Australia.
