When your credit card acceptance is transmitted over the Internet it is protected from unauthorised access by a method called encryption. Encryption is a technique of coding the information being sent using random mathematical "keys" so that only you and the bank can readily unscramble the information. These keys are generated for each credit card application and are erased when your session is terminated. A padlock will appear in the status bar at the bottom of your screen to indicate that the page is secure.
The personal information we collect from you in this acceptance form will be used for the administration of the card, marketing, planning, product development and research purposes.
It may be disclosed to other members of the Westpac Group (which means Westpac Banking Corporation and its related bodies corporate which include Westpac General Insurance Limited and Westpac Financial Services Limited), service providers who do things on our behalf (eg mailing house) or to other third parties where it is required or allowed by law or where you have otherwise consented.
You can access this information by calling 132 032. If you do not provide this information your application may not be accepted.
