What is Personal Information and why do we collect it?

We may also use your Personal Information for secondary purposes closely related to the primary purpose, in circumstances where you would reasonably expect such use or disclosure. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.
When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
Sensitive information is defined in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information.
Sensitive information will be used by us only:
- For the primary purpose for which it was obtained
- For a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose
- With your consent; or where required or authorised by law.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.

Your Personal Information may be disclosed in a number of circumstances including the following:
- Third parties where you consent to the use or disclosure; and

The advice give on this website and any documents is not legal advice. This is a tool to assist you and your partner to reach an agreement that can be implemented by you informally or if you require to then have a Consent Application to the Family Court of Australia or Federal Circuit Court of Australia or enter into a Financial Agreement drawn up by your lawyer. There are many legal requirements with regard to transferring property, stamp duty exemptions in relation to motor vehicles, real estate and other assets including superannuation you may be entitled to that a lawyer would be able to advise you of the appropriate way of obtaining those exemptions.
By using the tools in this website you and your partner can reach an agreement without incurring legal costs. The agreement can be used for the basis for an Order of a Court [if required] or a Financial Agreement pursuant to the Family Law Act 1975. Before you finalise any agreement with your partner in relation to property or any other assets including superannuation that may be able to be split between you and your partner, you should consult your legal representative.
Split Technologies or its officers or employees or consultants will take no responsibility or obligations for any consequence of any loss or damage you may suffer if you fail to consult a legal representative with regard to any agreement you have reached in relation to the tools available to you on this website.
