What if you don’t provide Lion the personal information it requires?
If you can’t, or won’t, provide Lion with the personal information it reasonably requires, Lion may be unable to provide you with the information, goods or services you have requested.

Lion may also use your personal information for other purposes not listed above which will be made clear to you at the time Lion collects that information, or for such purposes as may be required or permitted by law.
If Lion uses your personal information for direct marketing purposes, all correspondence sent to you by Lion will give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving any further direct marketing correspondence.
Will Lion give your personal information to anyone else?
In providing you the information, goods or services you request, Lion may be required to disclose your personal information to:

Other than those third parties referred to above, Lion will not disclose your personal information to any other third party unless it has reasonable grounds to believe:
- You have authorised Lion to do so;
- Your safety, or the safety of others in the community, is at risk; or
- Lion is required or permitted by law to do so.
If Lion provides your personal information to a third party, Lion generally requires the third party to protect your personal information in the same way Lion does.
Is my personal information secure?
Lion takes reasonable steps to ensure personal information it holds about you is protected from risks such as loss, unauthorised access, use, destruction, modification or disclosure.
No data transmission over the internet is totally secure. As a result, any personal information you send to Lion over the Internet (including via email) is sent at your own risk.
Your rights of access and correction
While there is no fee for requesting access to the personal information Lion holds about you, Lion reserves the right to charge a reasonable fee for the preparation and provision of that information to you.
