This privacy policy sets out how The Chartist handles your personal information. The Chartist complies with Australian privacy legislation.

When we talk about ‘us’, we mean the entity and website detailed in the Schedule, we are the operator of this website. When we talk about ‘you’, we mean the person using this website or services of this website.

‘Personal data’ or ‘personal information’ is information that directly identifies you, such as your name and email address, or data that could be used on its own or in combination with other data to identify you.

It is very important to us to be clear about what data we collect, why we collect it, how we use it and that we comply with applicable privacy and data protection laws.

Staying Anonymous

You can browse our webpages anonymously, although cookies may be collected. However, if you would like to take advantage of our services, including our 2 week trial membership, you will need to identify yourself to us and at that point we will collect your personal information.

Collection and Use of Data

At all times we try to only collect the information we need for the particular service we are providing. The main way we collect personal information is when you give it to us, or explicitly consent for it to be given to us. This generally occurs:

• when you contact us
• when you complete an online enquiry or request for information
• when you subscribe to our newsletter
• when you participate in a promotion offered by The Chartist
• when you submit an order through our online services
• when you subscribe to a trial or full membership with The Chartist
• when you ask for access to information we hold about you.

We collect and process the minimum amount of information to deliver our services to you and to meet our legal requirements under applicable financial services laws. This may include collecting sensitive personal information. This information includes:
• your first, middle and last name
• your email address
• your phone number
• your residential and postal address
• your gender, age and birth date
• your driver’s license number
• your level of trading skill
• your approximate trading account value (within a dollar range)

You agree that, for compliance purposes, we may retain any of your personal information for a period of seven years, although we are not obliged to do so.

We may share your personal information when required to do so by law or with our professional advisers to obtain advice or to meet our accounting or compliance obligations.

Collection of Data of Minors

We do not intend to collect the personal data of persons under the age of 13. If you are the guardian of a minor and suspect they may have provided us with their personal information, please contact us and request to have the minor’s personal information destroyed (use the contact information in the schedule below).

Unsolicited personal information

We may receive unsolicited personal information about you. We destroy or de-identify all unsolicited personal information we receive, unless it is relevant to our purposes for collecting personal information. We may retain additional information we receive about you if it is combined with other information we are required or entitled to collect. If we do this, we will retain the information in the same way we hold your other personal information.


We do not adopt identifiers assigned by the Government (such as drivers’ licence numbers) for our own file recording purposes, unless one of the exemptions in the Privacy Act applies.

The Chartist information partners

We are not brokers however we recognise you may need one. We may give your name and contact information to third party brokers who may contact you to provide information about their services. If you are contacted by a broker, you do not need to use their services. The legal basis we have for processing your information in this manner is your consent.

To enable us to offer to our members (depending on level of subscription) access to XL Automation Share Trade Tracker software (XL), we provide your first and last name and email address to XL Automation and Norgate Premium Data. The legal basis we have for this processing is the performance of our agreement to provide this service.

To enable us to offer you access to a free trial or paid download of RealTest we may share your first name, last name and email address to Systematic Solutions, LLC. The legal basis we have for processing your information in this manner is your consent.

Our web development and advertising partners are Kook Website Design and Digital Marketing. You agree we may share business card style personal information (name, phone number, state and country of residence) with these partners. The information is shared for our business advertising purposes and may be used for targeted marketing and/or remarketing.

We accept payments using PayPal and Stripe. Financial information you provide to these third party sites is managed according to the third party site’s own privacy policy. We will share your personal data with our payment service providers only to the extent necessary to process your payments or deal with refunds or complaints in relation to your payments.

Contractual arrangements with third parties

We ensure that all contractual arrangements with third parties adequately address privacy issues, and we make third parties aware of this Privacy Policy. Third parties will be required to implement policies in relation to the management of your personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act. These policies include:

  • regulating the collection, use and disclosure of personal and sensitive information.
  • de-identifying personal and sensitive information wherever possible.
  • ensuring that personal and sensitive information is kept securely, with access to it only by authorised employees or agents of the third parties; and
  • ensuring that the personal and sensitive information is only disclosed to organisations which are approved by us.

Our internal processes may include risk assessment for mis-use, interference loss or unauthorised access, modification or disclosure of your information and background tracking and records of changes made to your personal information. While we do our best to ensure the security of your data, no storage is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee the safety of your data.
