How we protect your privacy?
Online Identity Verification
In order to process your Pathway Education Fund application, ASG is required under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act to collect certain information from you to verify your identity. This will involve obtaining your name, date of birth and residential address, and may require the use of official government documents such as your driver’s licence and/or Australian passport. ASG, through a third party identity verification provider, will attempt to match your details against records held by relevant government agencies or a credit reporting agency. This is done online during this application process and the provider is required to comply with certain strict privacy obligations in relation to the personal information obtained and used for this purpose.
If you do not wish to conduct your identification check online, we recommend that you do not proceed with your application here. Please either create an enquiry by clicking here or call 131 ASG (131 274) to speak with an ASG representative to process your application and you can mail certified copies of any forms of identification required.
In either case, ASG can confirm that we will only use the information from the government agency or credit reporting agency for the purpose of verifying your identity and that we will not be obtaining additional personal or credit information during this process.
