We also collect Personal Data from business contacts, business partners, companies that we may invest in, credit bureaus, independent identity verification services, or any other third parties that we work with for the purposes of performing our Services, or from publicly available sources.

4.6. We may disclose your Personal Data to a third party referred to above that is located outside Australia, e.g. Singapore where we are compelled to do so by the relevant authorities of the jurisdiction that we operate our business (as applicable in the circumstances). In the event that there is a need for us to transfer your Personal Data to another country, we will ensure that the standard of data protection in the recipient country is comparable to that of the country from which the Personal Data is being transferred.

4.7. We will ensure that such third parties located overseas observe strict confidentiality and data protection obligations, and shall ensure that any Personal Data transferred overseas will be handled in accordance with applicable law. We achieve this by requiring relevant third parties to provide us with written confirmation (for example, by signing a non-disclosure agreement or other commercial agreement) that they will provide adequate protection in respect of the Personal Data in question.
