NTI has an internal dispute resolution system, which is designed to seek to resolve any complaints, or disputes, which may arise. To access it call us on 07 3292 9952 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If our internal dispute resolutions scheme is unable to resolve any complaint or dispute we will refer you to an ASIC approved external dispute resolution scheme. We are a member of the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (“AFCA”) which is an independent external dispute resolution body. In the event that you did not accept the decision that was contained in our letter, we wish to advise that you are entitled to lodge an application with the Australian Financial Complaints Authority to have the matter reviewed by them. For more information or to access the AFCA process please call 1800 931 678. Alternatively you can write to the AFCA at GPO Box 3, Melbourne, Victoria 3001. Access to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority is free.
It will be for the Australian Financial Complaints Authority to determine whether your complaint falls within the jurisdiction of their “Terms of Reference” and they will advise you accordingly. Please note, that the Australian Financial Complaints Authority’s “Terms of Reference” provide that any complaint must be lodged with the AFCA within two years of the date of our final decision. Alternatively, you retain the right to seek independent financial, legal, accounting and tax advice should you so desire.
Privacy is important to us and NTI’s Privacy Statements is committed to ensuring the privacy and security of your personal information. They adhere to the privacy legislation and this is set out in your PDS.
