6. Does Binance Australia Derivatives Share My Personal Information?
We may disclose personal information to:
- Third party service providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include analysing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments, transmitting content, and assessing and managing credit risk. These third-party service providers only have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Further, they must process the personal information in accordance with our contractual agreements and only as permitted by applicable privacy laws. We ensure that all contractual arrangements with third parties adequately address privacy issues.
- Business transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other businesses or services. In such transactions, user information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the user consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Binance Australia Derivatives or substantially all of its assets are acquired, user information will be one of the transferred assets.
We may share users' personal information with regulatory bodies (eg the Australian Securities & Investments Commission; AUSTRAC) and any financial dispute resolution scheme to which the company subscribes. This includes other law enforcement bodies; regulatory agencies; courts; arbitration bodies; and dispute resolution schemes. This may be both in Australia and internationally, as may be required by law.
If you request in writing, we may share your personal information with your nominated advisers. Except where disclosure of your personal information is required by law or requested by you, we will generally require any third party which receives, or has access to, personal information to protect it. Also to use it only to carry out the services they are performing for you or for us, unless otherwise required or permitted by law.
7. International transfers of personal information
Binance Australia Derivatives may transfer your information internationally. We put in place suitable technical, organisational and contractual safeguards to ensure that such transfer is carried out in compliance with applicable privacy laws and regulations.
We may disclose personal information to our affiliates, suppliers, and partners that are located outside Australia in some circumstances.
We will not send personal information to recipients outside of Australia unless:
- we have taken reasonable steps to ensure that the recipient does not breach the Privacy Act or the APPs;
- the recipient is subject to an information privacy scheme similar to the Privacy Act; or
- the individual has consented to the disclosure.
If you consent to your personal information being disclosed to an overseas recipient, and the recipient breaches the APPs, we will not be accountable for that breach under the Privacy Act, and you will not be able to seek redress under the Privacy Act.
8. How Secure is My Information?
We design our systems with your security and privacy in mind. We work to protect the security of your personal information during transmission by using encryption protocols and software.
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of your personal information. Our security procedures mean that we may ask you to verify your identity to protect you against unauthorised access to your account password. We recommend using a unique password for your Binance Australia Derivatives account that is not utilized for other online accounts and to sign out when you finish using a shared computer.
We undertake a number of physical, administrative, personnel and technical measures to protect your personal information and prevent it from misuse, interference and loss, as well as unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Our data security measures include, but are not limited to: Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology, pseudonymisation, internal data access restrictions, and strict physical access controls to buildings & files.
However, we cannot guarantee the secure transmission of data over the Internet nor complete safety of electronic storage. As such, we request that you understand the responsibility to independently take safety precautions to protect your own personal information.
If you suspect that your personal information has been compromised, especially account and/or password information, please lock your account and contact firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.

- you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose the information for the purpose of direct marketing; and
- we provide a simple way of opting out of direct marketing; and
- you have not requested to opt out of receiving direct marketing from us.

We will draw your attention to the fact you may make such a request in our direct marketing communications.
You have the right to request us not to use or disclose your personal information for the purposes of direct marketing, or for the purposes of facilitating direct marketing by other organisations. We must give effect to the request within a reasonable period of time. You may also request that we provide you with the source of their information. If such a request is made, we must notify you of the source of the information free of charge within a reasonable period of time.
10. What Information Can I Access?
You can access your information, including your name, address, payment options, profile information, and transaction history by reaching out to our Privacy Officer. We will provide access within 30 days of the individual’s request. If we refuse to provide the information, we will provide reasons for the refusal.
