Collecting information about you

We collect personal information from prospective and actual members of the Salaam Wealth Superannuation Fund (Fund).

We may collect your name, address and other contact information from you if you make an enquiry about, or invest in, the Fund.

We may also collect information about superannuation members from their employers, doctors and insurance companies, particularly where a member requests: insurance coverage; makes an insurance claim; or requests an early release of benefits.

In all cases we endeavour to ensure the information we collected is correct. If you are a member of the Fund you will receive transaction confirmations, correspondence and periodic statements from either us, the trustee (Russell Investment Master Trust), or the administrator (Link) of the Fund. We ask that you contact us immediately you become aware that your details require updating or alteration.

  • to provide information to you and to ask you whether you are interested or satisfied with the Fund; 
  • to administer your account in the Fund; 
  • for market research and analysis purposes; 
  • for product development; and 
  • to meet regulatory obligations. 
Who we might give your information to

Personal information may be shared between the companies forming the Salaam Wealth Group for marketing analysis and product development purposes.

Information about you may also be passed to the trustee and administrator of the Fund. 

These service providers are significant companies and are also subject to the provisions of the Act. 

Your information may be passed to third parties in the normal administration of your account, for example to a mail house to post distribution or periodic statements.

Information regarding your account may be given to third parties when necessary or when authorised by you, e.g., to your authorised financial adviser.

Information regarding your account in the Fund is accessible over the telephone where appropriate verification information is supplied. Please notify us immediately if you do not wish any person you have previously authorised to have access to your account information.

Information about members of the Fund may also be provided to other superannuation funds, your insurance company and agent, retirement savings accounts, or other rollover entities. 

You should also be aware that there are instances where we are legally obliged to pass on information about you. The following list of compulsory disclosures (i.e. disclosures we must make) provides you with examples but is not intended to be exhaustive or complete: 

  • in accordance with legislative requirements or authority (e.g., your tax file number and the taxable income of your account; deposits reportable under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (Cth) (AML/CTF); 
  • in accordance with the legislative requirements for the administration of the Fund, e.g., reporting or assisting in the investigation of unlawful activity or where there is a basis for suspecting such activity; 
  • to enforcement bodies with statutory authority (e.g., protection of public revenue or tax); 
  • in any criminal procedure with court authority; 
  • laws relating to the confiscation of the proceeds of crime; or 
  • proceedings by any enforcement or administrative body in a court or tribunal. 
We will not pass on your personal information to unrelated parties for their marketing purposes. We would seek your informed consent in the event this policy changes.
The quality of the information we collect

We endeavour to ensure that any information we collect, use or pass on is up-to-date and accurate.

We request that you contact us in the event your details change.

The security of information about you

Personal information shall be destroyed when it is no longer required for the purposes for which is was collected and is no longer required to be held for legal purposes. In some cases, we have statutory requirements to maintain our records for up to a period of ten years.

We take precautions to prevent the misuse, loss and unauthorised access or modification or disclosure of personal information. These include: the use of verification data before information about superannuation benefits is provided over the telephone or via the internet; restricted access to files; security checks on computer data; securing of data held on company networks; and a contractual requirement for service providers to use appropriate mechanisms to protect personal information.

Please note that we cannot guarantee the privacy of your information if you choose to correspond with us via email.

Access and/or correction of the information we hold about you

Please contact us immediately you become aware that any information we have about you is incorrect. In the event we dispute a correction you wish to make, we shall place your disputed information on the file, together with the unaltered statement of information, until such time as the matter can be resolved.

Unless there are exceptional circumstances around the openness of your files, we will provide you with copies of our current records about you. If you wish to see your information, we ask that you make a request in writing and allow us seven working days in which to forward it to you.

Circumstances in which access to your records might be denied or restricted could be as follows. Please note this list is not intended to be exhaustive: 

  • providing access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of another individual; 
  • the request is frivolous or vexatious; 
  • the information relates to existing or anticipated legal proceedings between you and us and would not be available by a process of discovery in those proceedings; 
  • providing access would prejudice negotiations we have with you; 
  • providing access would be unlawful or likely to prejudice an investigation into unlawful activity. 
Your ability to deal with us anonymously

You may contact us and seek to obtain any general information about the Fund without identifying yourself.

However, for reasons of security, you will not be able to obtain information about your Fund account without identifying yourself first. 

Transborder data flows

Generally, information about you or your account would only be sent to a foreign country at your request.

At present, we have no arrangement which would require the transfer of any information regarding you or your investment to a foreign country. 

Sensitive information

Sensitive information includes information about your health.  It also includes is information about your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade association, membership of a trade union or criminal record.

Members of the Fund may need to provide us or the Fund administrator with sensitive information regarding their health, including copies of records, reports and opinions. We require your consent to have this information and we will request you provide this in writing at the time it is required.

We may be required to collect health information if you apply for optional insurance or make an insurance claim. We may also need to collect sensitive information as part of the AML/CTF requirements. We will only seek to collect from you the minimum amount of information that is required. 

Notifiable Data Breaches

Salaam Wealth is required to notify affected individuals and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) about ‘eligible data breaches’. An eligible data breach occurs when the following criteria are met:

  • there is unauthorised access to, or disclosure of, personal information held by us (or information is lost in circumstances where unauthorised access or disclosure is likely to occur).
  • this is likely to result in serious harm to any of the individuals to whom the information relates.
  • we have been unable to prevent the likely risk of serious harm with remedial action.
We will conduct an assessment if it is not clear if a suspected data breach meets these criteria. The assessment will determine whether the breach is an ‘eligible data breach’ that triggers notification obligations.
