Please see our Credit Reporting Policy for further information as to the manner in which we collect, use, store and disclosure credit information.
To the extent practicable and reasonable, we will endeavour to provide you with the option of dealing with Motorama on an anonymous basis or through the use of a pseudonym.

10.1 Cross border disclosures
Any personal information collected and held by Motorama may be disclosed to, and held at, a destination outside Australia, where we utilise third party service providers, including but not limited to Google Apps and Gmail, to assist Motorama with providing our goods and services to you. Personal information may also be processed by staff or by other third parties operating outside Australia who work for us or for one of our suppliers, agents, partners or related companies. For example where we have to send your personal information to the manufacturers, distributors and or financiers and they may on-send that information to their overseas headquarters or related companies.
As we use service providers and platforms which can be accessed from various countries via an Internet connection, it is not always practicable to know where your information may be held. If your information is stored in this way, disclosures may occur in countries other than those listed above.
In addition we may utilise overseas IT services (including software, platforms and infrastructure), such as data storage facilities or other IT infrastructure. In such cases, we may own or control such overseas infrastructure or we may have entered into contractual arrangements with third party service providers to assist Motorama with providing our products and services to you.

10.3 If you do not consent
If you do not agree to the disclosure of your personal information outside Australia by Motorama, you should (after being informed of the cross border disclosure) tell Motorama that you do not consent.
