8.   Credit reporting
In this section 8, references to “we”, “us” or “our” refer to Lexus Finance only. Lexus Finance participates in the comprehensive credit reporting system to make better and more informed decisions about providing credit to our customers. When you apply for credit with Lexus Finance, or propose to be a guarantor, we may request a credit report about you from a CRB. Credit reports contain information about your credit history that will help us assess your credit worthiness and your ability to repay credit.

What credit information and credit eligibility information do we collect and hold?
The credit information we collect and hold includes your identification details, the type of credit you hold, the amount of credit borrowed, the terms and conditions of your credit, when your credit was opened or closed, whether or not you have met your repayment obligations under your loan contract and loan contracts with other credit providers, and information about your credit worthiness. The credit eligibility information we collect and hold includes credit reports obtained from a CRB and our own rating or score which help us to assess your creditworthiness.

What do we do with credit information and credit eligibility information?
We collect, hold, use and disclose credit information and credit eligibility information about you for purposes which include:

  • Confirming your identity;
  • Assessing your consumer or commercial credit or guarantor application;
  • Managing your account and collecting any overdue payments;
  • Helping you avoid defaulting on your loan;
  • Complying with any relevant laws and regulations.

We will use the information obtained from a CRB, and combine it with information we already hold about you, to calculate our own rating or score to help us assess your creditworthiness.

We may also disclose to the CRB if you have not met the payment obligations under your loan contract or if you have committed a serious credit infringement (for example fraud). Some of the information we disclose to a CRB may be included in your credit report and provided to other credit providers to help them assess your creditworthiness.

What are your rights?
You have the right to ask a CRB not to use your information for the purpose of pre-screening or direct marketing by a credit provider. You can ask them not to use or disclose this information for a period of time if you reasonably believe that you have been, or are likely to be, a victim of fraud.

9.   Holding and protecting your information
We may hold information about you in digital and paper forms. We take reasonable steps to protect your information from misuse, loss, interference, and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure. Some of the ways we protect your information include:

  • External and internal premises security;
  • Restricting access to your information only to personnel who need it to perform their functions;
  • Utilising and maintaining information security applications to prevent unauthorised access or damage to electronically stored information, such as requiring identifiers and passwords, firewalls and anti-virus software; and
  • Maintaining physical security over paper records.

10.   Disclosing your information overseas
We may disclose your information to organisations located overseas. These include:

  • Our related companies in Japan and elsewhere in the world; or
  • Our service providers that are located or hold data overseas including in the USA, Australia, Singapore, the UK and Sweden.

Any information we share overseas will be subject to comparable safeguards to those under the Privacy Act 2020.

11.   Accessing and correcting your information
You can generally access and request the correction of information we hold about you by contacting us in any of the ways set out at the bottom of this policy. Please note that the organisations comprising the Lexus Network (that is, each of Lexus NZ, Lexus Finance, Lexus Insurance, and each authorised Lexus Dealer) are separate organisations, and each organisation may hold different information about you (if any).

Access to your information may be refused in a number of circumstances, such as where the information relates to anticipated legal proceedings or if the request for access is frivolous or vexatious. If we deny or restrict your access, we will write to you to let you know why, unless, having regard to the grounds for the refusal, it would be unreasonable for us to do so. You may make a complaint about a refusal to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner.

We rely on the information that we hold about you to provide our products and services to you, and to perform our business functions. Therefore, it is very important that the information we hold is accurate, complete, up to date and relevant. This means that, from time to time, we may ask you if your information is still accurate and up to date. If you find that any information that we hold about you is incorrect, you should contact us immediately and we will take reasonable steps to correct it.

12.   Resolving concerns

Complaints can be made by contacting the person or department you were dealing with, or by contacting us using our contact details set out at the bottom of this policy.

We endeavour to respond to you within 24 hours to acknowledge the complaint and explain how we will investigate it. This may include consulting with the CRB or other credit providers if the complaint relates to your credit information. We will try to resolve your complaint within 20 working days and write to you to explain the reasons for our decision.

2.1 Price
Prices and specifications are subject to change without notice. Please contact your Dealer for confirmation.

“RSP” means Recommended Selling Price. It is a recommendation only and there is no obligation on Toyota New Zealand Limited nor Dealers to comply with the recommendation.

“RRP” means Recommended Retail Price. It is a recommendation only and there is no obligation on Toyota New Zealand Limited nor Dealers to comply with the recommendation.

“MRP” means Maximum Retail Price. It is the maximum price at which goods and services may be resupplied.

Vehicle accessory prices shown are inclusive of estimated fitting costs unless otherwise specified. The estimated fitted price is based on factory fitment at time of order. The estimated price assumes a recommended selling price for the accessory plus an estimate for the labour required to implement the fitting. Actual Dealer fitted prices may vary from the prices stated. Some Lexus Genuine Accessories are not available for all models/grades. Accessories may require painting to match vehicle body colour. Tyre purchase and fitment are not included in the accessory wheel purchase price.

2.2 Fuel Consumption & Battery Range
Fuel/energy consumption, emission, annual fuel cost, and driving range figures are based on laboratory tests under controlled conditions. Some WLTP figures are based on converted NEDC test results and are for comparison purposes only. Actual results will vary depending on factors such as vehicle usage and operating conditions. You should not expect that the fuel/energy consumption, emission and driving range figures will be achieved in real world driving conditions. The specification listed is on a provisional basis and therefore may be subject to change.
