Central to the success of Macquarie Group is our commitment to our clients. We honour without reservation our obligation to respect and protect the personal data of individuals with whom we deal.
Whenever it is reasonable and practical to do so, we collect personal data about you directly from you.

The personal data we collect and hold about you include but is not limited to the following:
If you provide us with any personal data relating to a third party (e.g. information of your customers, spouse, children, parents, and/or employees), by submitting such information to us, you represent to us that you have obtained the consent of the third party to you providing us with their personal data for the respective purposes.
You should ensure that all personal data submitted to us is complete, accurate, true and correct. Failure on your part to do so may result in our inability to provide you with the products and services you have requested for.

In addition, where permitted under the Act, we may from time to time also collect, use or disclose your personal data to conduct market research, understand and analyse customer behaviour, location, preferences and demographics for us to inform you of investment opportunities or to provide information about products and services as well as special offers which may be relevant to your preferences and profile.
