    9. Credit reporting (applies only if you seek finance from Lexus Financial Services)

    In this section, references to “we”, “us” or “our” refer to Lexus Financial Services only, not Lexus Australia. Lexus Financial Services participates in the credit reporting system to make better and more informed decisions about providing credit to our customers. When you apply for credit with Lexus Financial Services, or propose to be a guarantor, we may request a credit report about you from a Credit Reporting Body (CRB). Credit reports contain information about your credit history that will help us assess your credit worthiness and your ability to repay credit.

    What credit information and credit eligibility information do we collect and hold?

    The credit information we collect and hold includes your identification details, the type of credit you hold, the amount of credit borrowed, the terms and conditions of your credit, when your credit was opened or closed, whether or not you have met your repayment obligations under your loan contract and loan contracts with other credit providers, and information about your credit worthiness. The credit eligibility information we collect and hold includes credit reports obtained from a CRB and our own rating or score which help us to assess your creditworthiness.

    What do we do with credit information and credit eligibility information?

    We collect, hold, use and disclose credit information and credit eligibility information about you for purposes which include:

    • confirming your identity;
    • assessing your consumer or commercial credit or guarantor application;
    • managing your account and collecting any overdue payments;
    • helping you avoid defaulting on your loan;
    • complying with any relevant laws and regulations.

    We will use the information obtained from a CRB, and combine it with information we already hold about you, to calculate our own rating or score to help us assess your creditworthiness.

    We may also disclose to the CRB if you have not met the payment obligations under your loan contract or if you have committed a serious credit infringement (for example fraud). Some of the information we disclose to a CRB may be included in your credit report and provided to other credit providers to help them assess your creditworthiness.

    We may disclose your information to any of the following CRBs:

    If you would like to know how these organisations manage your information, you can view their privacy policies on their websites or contact them directly by calling the numbers above.

    What are your rights?

    You have the right to ask a CRB not to use your information for the purpose of pre-screening or direct marketing by a credit provider. You can ask them not to use or disclose this information for a period of time if you reasonably believe that you have been, or are likely to be, a victim of fraud.

    10. Holding and protecting your information

    We may hold information about you in digital and paper forms. We take reasonable steps to protect your information from misuse, loss, interference, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Some of the ways we protect your information include:

    • external and internal premises security;
    • utilising secure servers;
    • restricting access to your information only to personnel who need it to perform their functions;
    • utilising and maintaining information security applications to prevent unauthorised access or damage to electronically stored information, such as requiring identifiers and passwords, firewalls, encryption and anti-virus software as appropriate;
    • limiting the functionality of Connected Services to only respond to commands from you, us or any authorised users and only for those features you have not opted out from receiving; and
    • maintaining physical security over paper records.

    11. Data Retention

    Unless we are required to retain your information for a longer period as required or authorised by or under law, your information will be retained by us for as long as reasonably necessary to provide and support the products the services you have obtained from Lexus.

    12. Disclosing your information overseas

    We may disclose your information to organisations located overseas. These include:

    • our related companies in Japan and elsewhere in the world such as the UK, and USA; or
    • our service providers that are located or hold data overseas including in the USA, Singapore, India, the UK, Ireland, and Sweden.

    In addition to the above, if your vehicle collects and transmits vehicle data for Connected Services, your vehicle data will be disclosed to:

    • Toyota and Lexus entities and service providers located overseas which support the provision of Connected Services in Australia. These include organisations located in Japan, the UK, Singapore, and USA including Toyota Connected Europe in the UK and Toyota Motors North America in the USA.
    • Toyota entities located overseas including Toyota Motor Corporation in Japan for research and development purposes, including improving vehicle quality, and conducting vehicle diagnostics.

    13. Accessing and correcting your information

    You can generally access and request the correction of information we hold about you by contacting us in any of the ways set out at the bottom of this policy. Please note that the organisations comprising the OneLexus Network (that is, each of Lexus Australia, Lexus Financial Services, each Lexus dealer and Lexus Insurance) are separate organisations, and each organisation may hold different information about you (if any).

    We may charge an access fee to recover the reasonable costs incurred. This charge is only designed to help us reasonably recover the costs associated with providing you with access and does not apply to the making of the request. Before we act on a request, we will provide an estimate of the access fee and ask you to agree to it.

    Access to your information may be refused in a number of circumstances, such as where the information relates to anticipated legal proceedings or if the request for access is frivolous or vexatious. If we deny or restrict your access, we will write to you to let you know why, unless, having regard to the grounds for the refusal, it would be unreasonable for us to do so. You may make a complaint about a refusal to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner.

    We rely on the information that we hold about you to provide our products and services to you, and to perform our business functions. Therefore, it is very important that the information we hold is accurate, complete, up to date and relevant. This means that, from time to time, we may ask you if your information is still accurate and up to date. If you find that any information that we hold about you is incorrect, you should contact us immediately and we will take reasonable steps to correct it.

    14. Your Responsibilities

    To ensure the information we hold is accurate, complete, up to date and relevant, we require that you:

    • notify us of the sale or transfer of your Lexus vehicle
    • notify us if you have purchased or acquired your Lexus vehicle outside of the Lexus Dealer network; and
    • if your vehicle has an enabled Connected Services functionality, inform passengers and drivers of your connected vehicle that vehicle data is collected and used by us for Connected Services.

    If you do not notify us of a sale, purchase, acquisition or transfer of a vehicle, we may continue to send communications in relation to that vehicle to the last known registered owner in our records.

    15. Resolving concerns

    If you believe that your privacy has been compromised, or if you feel that we have breached the privacy laws, you are entitled to make a complaint. Complaints can be made by contacting the person or department you were dealing with, or by contacting us using our contact details set out at the bottom of this policy.

    We endeavour to respond to you within 24 hours to acknowledge the complaint and explain how we will investigate it. This may include consulting with the CRB or other credit providers if the complaint relates to your credit information. We will try to resolve your complaint within 20 working days and write to you to explain the reasons for our decision. When this is not possible, we will contact you and let you know how long it will take for us to resolve your complaint.

    If your complaint is not satisfactorily resolved, you can contact us to discuss your concerns or lodge a complaint with Office of the Australian Information Commissioner by visiting, calling 1300 363 992 or emailing [email protected]. If your complaint relates to your finance with us you may access the Australian Financial Complaints Authority at or by calling 1800 931 678.

This Privacy Policy ("Policy") applies solely to information collected through our websites, and online services, including, and other Servco-owned or operated websites and online services that link to this policy (collectively, the "Sites"), through our programs and in our physical stores whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology (collectively, the "Services"). 

    This Policy describes the types of information we collect through the Services, how that information may be used and/or with whom it may be shared; and how you can reach us to get answers to questions you may have about our privacy practices on these Services. Please read this Policy carefully, because by using the Services you are acknowledging that you understand and agree to the terms of this Policy. In addition, please review our Terms of Use, which governs your use of the Services and any content you submit to the Services. 
    1. What is Personal Information? 
    As used herein, the term "Personal Information" means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, or credit card number), or information about that individual that is directly linked to personally identifiable information. Personal Information does not include "aggregate information", which is data we collect about the use of the Services or about a group or category of services or users from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. Personal Information also does not include Usage Information (as defined below) or Device Identifier (as defined below) that is not connected to Personal Information. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate or Usage Information that is not connected to Personal Information. 
    2. Information Collected on Our Services 


    You may choose to provide Personal Information through the Services. For example, the Company may collect Personal Information when you schedule a service appointment, register for a promotional event, request financing information, or apply for a job. If you do not want your Personal Information collected, please do not submit it. 


    Whenever you visit or interact with the Services, the Company, as well as any third-party advertisers and/or service providers, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Services are accessed and used ("Usage Information"). Usage Information may include, in part, browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, how many users visited the Services, and the preceding page views. This statistical data provides us with information about the use of the Services, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on the Services, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they "click" on. This information helps us to keep the Services fresh and interesting to our visitors and to tailor content to a visitor's interests. Usage Information is generally non-identifying, but if the Company associates it with you as a specific and identifiable person, the Company treats it as Personal Information. In the course of collecting Usage Information, the Company also may automatically collect your IP address or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, "Device") you use to access the Services. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. When you visit the Services, we may view your Device Identifier. We may use this information to determine the general physical location of your Device and understand from what regions of the world the visitors to the Services come.
