AMP's privacy policy is based on openness

We are committed to being open about how we use personal information and the AMP Privacy Policy is available to anyone who asks for it.

Where our documents ask for personal information, wewill normally state the general purposes for its use and to whom it may be disclosed.

The purposes for which AMP collects personal information

Our business is to understand and meet our customers’ needs over their lifetime for a wide range of financial and other services. To do this effectively, we need to collect certain personal information.

Our business provides financial products and services under various brands. This policy applies to the collection of personal information by all our businesses under each of the brands that operate under an AMP entity to which this policy applies.

The types of financial products and services provided by us include (but are not limited to):

  • life insurance products protecting against risks
  • investment products to build wealth
  • superannuation and retirement income products to provide for your retirement years
  • banking and other services to provide deposit and credit facilities
  • financial planning advice and other services to help individuals understand their financial needs and make financialand investment decisions
  • management of investment assets such as shares, property (including shopping centres), fixed interest and cash

Unless informed otherwise, the personal information we hold is mainly used for establishing and managing the financial products orservices of our customers, and reviewing their ongoing needs.

AMP Limited also holds personal information in relation to its shareholders. We use personal information about shareholders to fulfil our legal obligations and to keep our shareholders informed of AMP's progress and the products and services that we provide to our customers.

Collecting personal information also allows us to meet legal obligations we might have including those under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act and the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act.

We may also use personal information we have collected for purposes related to those set out above - for example, enhancing customer service and product options and providing our customers with ongoing information about opportunities that may be useful for their financial needs.

These may include investment, retirement, financialplanning, banking, credit, life insurance products and enhanced customer services that may be made available by us or by a financial planner.

The use of sensitive information is subject to greater restrictions and is discussed below.

What kind of personal information do we ask for?

Because of the nature of the products and services provided as well as Australian and international government regulations and taxation laws, we ask for a range of personal information from our customers and shareholders.

The type of personal information we collect may include (but is not limited to) name, address, date of birth, contact details, income, assets and liabilities, account balances, tax and financial statements, employment details and whether you are a U.S. citizen.

How do we collect information?

Where reasonable and practicable, we obtain personalinformation directly from our customers (such as through application or otherforms), and from
maintaining records of information provided in the course of ongoing financial planning advice, applications, claims or customer service.

We may also obtain information from other sources such as lawyers or accountants if they have been authorised by our customers. When we are provided with personal information about a third party, we will require that third party to be informed of certain matters, such as AMP’s identity and our contact details.

We may ask for other information from time to time (for example, through market research, surveys or special offers) to enable us to improve our service or consider the wider needs of our customers or potential customers.

Some of our insurance and superannuation plans, ourfinancial planning businesses and our banking business also involve uscollecting sensitive information. For more details, see the section on 'Sensitive information' below.

If a customer chooses not to provide the information we need to fulfil their request for a specific product or service, we may not be able to provide them with the requested product or service.

Who may we disclose personal information to?

Depending on the product or service concerned and particular restrictions on sensitive information, personal information may be disclosed to:

  • other areas and organisations within the AMP group who provide financial and other services
  • financial planners, brokers and those who are authorised by AMP to
  • review customers' needs and circumstances from timeto time
  • service providers and specialist advisers to AMP who have been contracted to provide AMP with administrative, financial, insurance, research or other services
  • other insurers and credit providers
  • courts, tribunals and other dispute resolution bodies in the course of a dispute
  • regulatory authorities (such as the ATO, APRA, ASIC, AUSTRAC and IRS)
  • credit reporting or reference agencies or insuranceinvestigators
  • employers participating in our superannuation or insurance plans
  • policy committees in our superannuation plans
  • anyone authorised by an individual, as specified bythat individual or the contract
  • anyone authorised by law to obtain information about you.

Normally, we require that organisations outside theAMP group of companies who handle or obtain personal information as service providers to AMP acknowledge the confidentiality of this information, undertake to respect any individual's right to privacy and comply with the National Privacy Principles and this policy.

Sensitive information

Some personal information we hold is 'sensitive' and subject to greater restrictions.

Sensitive information relates to a person's racial or ethnic origin, political opinions or membership of political bodies, religious beliefs or affiliations, philosophical beliefs, membership of a professionalor trade association or trade union, sexual preferences or activities, criminal record, state of health and medical history.

Some sensitive information is usually needed for applications for death, sickness and disability insurance and to manage claims on those products. It may also be
relevant for applications and management of credit as well as for other applications relating to the provision and operation of a financial service or product.

It is AMP’s policy that sensitive information will be used and disclosed only for the purposes for which it was provided, unless the customer agrees otherwise or the use or disclosure of this information is allowed by law. Documents asking for sensitive information will explain this.

The way we use tax file numbers and information received from a credit reporting agency about an individual is also restricted by law.

Management of personal information

AMP trains its employees and financial advisers whohandle personal information to respect the confidentiality of customer information and the privacy of individuals. AMP regards breaches of your privacy very seriously and may take disciplinary action.

AMP has appointed Privacy Officers to ensure that AMP's management of personal information is in accordance with this statement and the Privacy Act.

How do we store personal information?

Safeguarding the privacy of your information is important to us, whether you interact with us personally, by phone, mail, over the internet or other electronic
medium. We hold personal information in a combination of secure computer storage facilities, paper-based files as well as inother formats. We take steps to
protect personal information we hold from misuse, loss, unauthorised access, modification or improper disclosure.

We may need to maintain records for a significant period of time. However, once we consider information is no longer needed, we mayremove any details that identify you or we may securely destroy the records.

How do we keep personal information accurate and up-to-date?

AMP endeavours to ensure that the personal information it holds is accurate and up-to-date. We realise that this information changes frequently with changes of
address and other personal circumstances. We can generally update your customer information over the telephone or via the AMP website.

Your right to request what personal information about you is held by us

Under the Privacy Act, you generally have the right to access any personal information that AMP holds about you on request. The Act does set out some exceptions to this.

To make a request, you will need to complete an application form specifying the information you require and provide documentation verifying your identity.

We will acknowledge your request within 14 days and will respond promptly to your request. We may charge a fee to cover the costof verifying the application
and locating, retrieving, reviewing and copying anymaterial that you have requested. If the information sought is extensive, we will advise you of the likely
cost in advance and can help to refine your requestif required.


The nature of the provision of financial services does not lend itself to treating customers with anonymity. All transactions require personal information about
the individual for whom the transaction is being completed. However, in some cases we may be able to provide information or a service anonymously, for
example, enquiries about our products from a potential customer.
