This Privacy Statement was last updated on 23 February 2023.
Security is a top priority and we have security methods and technologies in place to protect the details that you transmit over the internet, but no system can ever be guaranteed as 100% safe.
We may utilise services from one or more third party suppliers to manage our data and monitor or maintain the cyber security of our systems and information. These third party suppliers will have access to monitoring and logging information as well as information processed on our websites and other IT systems.
Rapidly advancing technology and the open nature of the internet, for example, make it difficult to achieve watertight security. This is why you too must keep an eye on your own safety, especially when downloading files and supplying personal details on the internet. It's wise for you to take some personal precautions, so we can both ensure that any risks related to using our website is kept to a minimum. We recommend you keep your technology up to date with current security systems and operating systems updates.
You may apply for user names, passwords or PIN codes (Security Information) to access parts of our website. You are required to select a suitable password.
You are responsible for keeping your Security Information safe and agree not to share it with anyone else. You must not write your Security Information down or store it electronically (on your computer or phone). You should change your password regularly and password protect all devices (such as computers, phones or tablets) that access your personal information on our website. Do not leave your devices unattended while logged on to our website.
You must notify us immediately if your Security Information is used or becomes known by anyone else.
Email fraud and bogus websites
You may have heard of the term 'phishing'. It refers to fraudsters 'fishing' for your personal and financial details to use for criminal purposes.
Criminals do this, for instance, by making identical copies of the websites of large reputable enterprises such as Smartshares. They may also send scam emails in the hope of tricking you into surrendering your personal information.
Remember: We will never ask you for confidential information in this way.
How can I recognise a bogus website?
Whenever you are uncertain of whether the website on your screen is genuine, check the exact internet address, or URL. The URL of the corporate internet sites related to the QuayStreet Funds and QuayStreet KiwiSaver Scheme end with www.quaystreet.com. To make sure you have the correct URL, you can type it in yourself e.g. www.quaystreet.com. That way, you avoid being directed to a bogus address by a misleading banner or link.
How can I recognise a scam email?
Without using additional measures such as a digital signature, it is easy for fraudsters to imitate emails. But that doesn't mean you can't recognise scam emails. Cyber-criminals often place alarming, enticing or exciting subjects in their emails with the hope of tempting you to respond impulsively and divulge the requested information. So, always take your time to read the email carefully. In case of doubt, it is better not to respond. If you do choose to respond, always first check that the mail is genuine by contacting the company that is the apparent sender by telephone, for instance.
Remember: We will never ask you via email to supply confidential information.
Must I keep sensitive information confidential?
Always be careful when asked for sensitive information such as account numbers, card numbers, PIN codes and address details. We will never ask you for this via email. We always handle your personal information and security with the utmost care. To learn more about cyber fraud click here,
