We understand that your privacy is important to you. You will need to give us some personal information so that we can supply energy to you (if you are a customer) and provide some of the features available on our website. It’s important this personal information, and any other information you give us, is correct and you let us know if there’s any change to it. If you don't supply us with this information, we may not be able to supply energy to you.
By registering for Platinum’s energy services, you confirm that you’re the account holder or are authorised by the account holder, to access the accounts for which you have registered, or for any accounts that you add to your account profile in the future.
We’ll keep your personal information secure and it’ll be held by us in our customer database in accordance with the Privacy Act 1993 and as set out in our terms and conditions above. However, we may release your personal information to any network operator that we work with to supply energy to you, if they request it. Otherwise, we’ll only release your personal information and collect other information about you if you authorise us to do this, if we’re legally required to, or to enable us to:
- - carry out credit checks or otherwise assess your creditworthiness; or
- - advise you of any products or services which we consider may be of interest to you; or
- - conduct, or contact you for the purpose of market research; or
- - collect debts; or
- - implement any scheme for the payment of rebates to customers; or
- - provide you with any services you have requested; or
- - share credit information and your payment history with other energy supply companies, either directly, indirectly or through credit agencies, for the purpose of those companies carrying out credit reference checks in relation to the supply of energy or related services to you.
