Use of this website is subject to the following terms:
About this website
This website is operated by Police & Nurses Limited (ACN 087 651 876, ABN 69 087 651 876) on behalf of itself and its related bodies corporate ("P&N", "we" "us", "our") under the domain name "pnbank.com.au" ("Website").
Currency and changes
We may, from time to time, make changes to the Website or Materials (or both).
Accessing the Website from a mobile device
If you access the Website from a mobile device, you may not be able to access the full range of services which are ordinarily available from the Website. For example, you may not be able to access portable document format (PDF) documents, pages requiring Flash (or any other media player) or make an application for a product.
If you are unable to open, view, save or otherwise access relevant information through your mobile device (including disclosure documents such as our Financial Services Guide, Credit Guide or a Product Disclosure Statement), you will need to obtain the information or document by accessing the Website from a device other than a mobile device – such as a computer. You must not submit any online application or request for a product or service if you are unable to open and save all disclosure documents relating to that product or service.
Although we regularly review developments in security and encryption, we cannot guarantee that information transmitted over the internet is totally secure. Therefore, when you send us information (including via an online form or by email), you do so at your own risk. Once we have received information from you, we take reasonable steps to keep the information secure whilst it is in our own systems. We encrypt personal information before sending it over the internet to third parties - even so, we cannot guarantee that it is secure.
We cannot guarantee that the Website is free from viruses, or that access to the Website will be uninterrupted. You should therefore ensure that the way you access the Website does not expose your equipment to the risk of viruses or other forms of interference which may damage it.
Encryption and SSL Connection
Our online banking service ("Netlink") and our mobile online banking service ("MiLink") has strong online encryption in place and uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This provides an encrypted connection between your computer and our systems. You will be connected to an encrypted site utilising SSL technology if you see a small padlock icon at the bottom of your web browser.
Digital Certificates and Netlink
In addition to using SSL technology, we also use VeriSign Digital Certificates to ensure a secure connection to Netlink. To check for the Verisign Digital Certificate before logging on to Netlink, right click your mouse, select 'properties' from the list of options, then click on 'certificates'. This should verify that you are logging on to Netlink securely.
We use all reasonable endeavours to ensure the availability of Netlink, MiLink and the Website, but cannot guarantee the availability of these services as we are dependent at all times on a number of independent suppliers to provide you with these services.
To the extent permitted by law, we accept no responsibility for any loss occasioned to any person acting (or refraining from acting) as a result of the unavailability of the Website, Netlink, MiLink or any other service that ordinarily may be accessed through the Website.
Additional terms may apply to you
Therefore, if we provide you with such services, you are also bound by those product-specific terms and conditions, and, as such, you should review them wherever they are accessible by you on the Website. You can review the Netlink and MiLink terms and conditions here.
You should familiarise yourself with product-specific and service-specific terms and conditions before deciding on whether to acquire or retain a product.
For deposit and payment products, please review the relevant current Product Disclosure Statements available from the Website or any of our branches. For credit products, please review the current terms and conditions for those products available from the Website or any of our branches.
Full details and up to date terms and conditions, charges, interest rates, product information, and special offers are available via our website, from any of our branches, or by contacting us on 13 25 77.

Cookies, Advertising & Tracking
Collecting information & cookies
When you use the Website, we may collect information about you and may involve the use of "cookies" (as explained below).
What is a "cookie"?
A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer hard drive by our web page server which we can later access. Cookies are frequently used on websites and you can choose if and how your computer accepts them by configuring your preferences and options in your browser.
If you visit our website (including if you visit an unsecured area - such as one which does not require you to log on to the relevant page), the cookie allows us to:
- allocate a P&N identification number to your internet browser
- determine if you have previously visited the Website
- identify pages you have accessed and third party websites you have visited
- online banking (Netlink, MiLink)
- online product application forms
- online enquiry forms
Cookies do not, of themselves, contain personal information about you. However, should you provide us with personal information (such as through an online enquiry form or online banking) we would be able to track your browsing activities on the Website from the cookie.
Your browser should be able to give you the choice for your computer not to accept cookies in respect of your activities on the Website. You may still be able to use some information-only pages if you choose not to accept cookies. However, if you want to make full use of the Website, you need to set up your browser to accept cookies.
Monitoring our advertising effectiveness
We use external advertising companies for our online advertising. This may involve displaying a banner advertisement on a third party website.
- the server your computer is logged onto
- your browser type
- the date and time of your visit
When you visit the Website after following a link from one of our advertisements on a third party website, information is collected on how you use our Website. This might include which pages you view, and whether you start and complete an online application.
In each case, the information is collected principally so that the effectiveness of the advertising can be measured.
We may also share with other third parties cookie information, information about your preferences or other information you have given the third party. We do not share any personal information which could identify you, without your consent.
Tracking & website statistics
We have arrangements with website-tracking companies, such as Google Analytics, who track web-users' behaviour on websites, aggregate behavioural information and use such information to study internet user behaviour patterns.
As a general rule, personal information is neither collected during the tracking process nor used in their studies. Instead, they use information mainly to measure advertising effectiveness and relative consumer interest in the various areas of our Website. If, however, personal information is collected by website-tracking companies, our arrangements with the website-tracking companies require them to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of that information. Details of Google Analytics' privacy statement can be found on their website.
The statistics gathered Google Analytics provide us with information on usage of the Website, such as the number of pages viewed, number of unique visitors, common entry and exit points, search engines, demographic and interests, data and search terms used and the effectiveness of the various areas on the Website.
We may disclose the aggregated information collected to third parties including advertisers or potential advertisers.
We store the content of any email you send us. We may monitor the content for security issues - such as where email abuse is suspected. Our reply to you may also be monitored to help us meet our quality assurance goals.
Information about you & your privacy
We publish the Materials on the Website in good faith on an "as is" and "as available" basis. The information is believed to be accurate and current at the date the Materials are published on the Website.
Whilst we have made every effort to ensure that the Materials are free from error, neither we nor our directors, officers or employees, warrant the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of the Materials (including in relation to any products or services) and do not accept any responsibility arising in any way (including negligence) for errors in, or omissions from, the Materials.

You understand and agree that any Materials and/or data downloaded or otherwise obtained through your use of the Website is obtained at your own discretion and risk. You are responsible for any damage to your computer system or mobile device or loss of data that results from the download of such material and/or data.
You must ensure that your access to the Website is not illegal or prohibited by laws, which apply to you in your location.
We do not guarantee that third party websites (including Linked Sites) (or the Website) will be free from viruses, or that access to Linked sites will be uninterrupted.
To the extent permitted by law, we expressly disclaim all representations and warranties and other terms, whether express or implied, in respect of the Website or services available through the Website. We make no warranty that the Website or any service or information made available from the Website will meet your requirements, or that the services will be uninterrupted, timely, secure or error free.
All restrictions, licences granted by you and all disclaimers and limitations of liability by P&N will survive in any event of termination of the website.
To the extent permitted by law, we are not liable to you for any loss (including any direct, consequential or indirect loss including loss of profits), damage, liabilities, claims and expenses (including but not limited to legal costs and defence or settlement costs) whatsoever arising in connection with Third Party Material, Materials, your use of the Website or your inability to access the Website, whether in contract, tort including for negligence, statute or otherwise.
