Privacy Policy

The Catholic Development Fund (CDF) has updated its privacy policy in 2009. Our members’ privacy has always been of utmost importance to the Fund and has had measures in place to ensure the privacy of our members’ personal information. The Fund will continue to ensure that all members’ personal details are kept confidential and secure.

Personal Information

The CDF collects the following personal information from its clients – name, address, date of birth, gender, tax number and identification. The Fund needs this information to maintain its records in a proper manner and in a format that allows it to identify its clients.

Collection of Personal Information

The above information is generally collected when a new client opens an account using an application form. Occasionally the Fund may ask clients to update their personal information to ensure its records are accurate.

How The Fund Uses Personal Information

Your personal information is only used to provide you with the products and services you’ve requested from the Fund. It will only be used for the purposes for which you tell the CDF it can be used, or to contact you to respond to your needs or enquiries.

Transfer of Information

Your personal information will be treated with respect and will not be provided to any individual or organisation unconnected with the CDF without your express written consent, unless we are required by law to do so. Sometimes clients’ personal information may be transferred to or handled by:

  • The Fund’s auditors
  • Government bodies, such as the Inland Revenue Department
  • Accountants, solicitors or other professional advisers that clients have authorized us to act on their behalf

The Fund does not sell or rent out any of the personal information it holds and it protects the security of that information in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Access to Personal Information

You have a right to access your personal information at any time. You may also request that the Fund update your personal information if it is ever inaccurate or incomplete.

If you wish to gain access to your personal information, raise a concern or lodge a complaint about the Fund’s privacy policy, please put your request in writing and mail it to:
