Sensitive Information

Sensitive Information is defined in the Privacy Act to include information or opinion about such things as an individual's racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, membership of a political association, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a trade union or other professional body, criminal record or health information. Sensitive Information is a subset of Personal Information that is afforded a higher level of protection under the APPs.

Sensitive information will be used by us only:

•           for the primary purpose for which it was obtained;

•           for a secondary purpose that is directly related to the primary purpose; and

•           with your consent; or where required or authorised by law.

We may also collect Sensitive Information on an individual’s racial or ethnic origin for the purpose of reporting on the diversity targets set out in Giant Leap’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Policy (available here). Any such Sensitive Information collected for this purpose will be deidentified and anonymised before being collated at an aggregate level, and only the anonymised aggregated information may be made public. 

Third Parties

Where reasonable and practicable to do so, we will collect your Personal Information only from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties. 

If we receive information about you from a third party, we will protect it as set out in this Privacy Policy. We do not routinely disclose personal information to third parties unless: 

  • you have consented; 
  • you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose your personal information in this way; 
  • we are authorised to do so by law; or 
  • the Personal Information has been de-identified and anonymised prior to release and is presented in an aggregated form. 

This may include disclosing personal information to our employees, contractors and related entities, as well as third parties who supply services to us to assist us in performing our administration functions and in fulfilling our legal and regulatory obligations (e.g. legal and accounting firms, data storage systems and certain SaaS providers). For clarity, we do not sell, trade or rent your Personal Information to third parties without your consent. 

If you are a third party providing personal information about somebody else, you represent and warrant that you have such person’s consent to provide the personal information to us. 

Our Website may contain links to other parties’ websites. We do not have any control over those websites, and we are not responsible for the protection and privacy of any personal information which you provide whilst visiting those websites. Those websites are not governed by this Privacy Policy. 

Disclosure of Personal Information

Your Personal Information may be disclosed:

  • where you have consented to the use or disclosure; 
  • where you would reasonably expect us to use or disclose your personal information in this way; or
  • where we are authorised to do so by law; or 
  • where the Personal Information has been de-identified and anonymised prior to release and is presented in an aggregated form. 

To whom may we disclose your Personal Information? 

We may disclose your Personal Information to: 

  • our employees, contractors and related entities; 
  • third party service providers for the purpose of enabling them to provide their services to us, including (without limitation) IT service providers, legal and regulatory partners, marketing or advertising providers, professional advisors and payment systems operators; 
  • our portfolio entities or persons where we are introducing you to them; 
  • the readers of our Small Steps newsletter or Website blog, where you have been profiled or featured in an article, in respect of your name and professional history ; 
  • our existing or potential agents or business partners; 
  • courts, tribunals and regulatory authorities, in the event you fail to pay for goods or services we have provided to you; 
  • third parties to collect and process data, such as Google Analytics; and 
  • any other third parties as required or permitted by law, such as where we receive a subpoena. 

Sharing of Personal Information outside of Australia 

Giant Leap operates primarily in Australia. In order to provide our services effectively, we may need to share some of your Personal Information with organisations outside of Australia. Sometimes, we may need to ask you before this happens. At this stage, our current list of overseas countries includes, without limitation and subject to change, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.We may store your information in a cloud or other types of networked or electronic storage. As electronic or networked storage may be accessed from various countries via an internet connection, it is not always practicable to know in which country your information may be held. If your information is held in this way, disclosures may occur in countries other than those listed. 

In certain circumstances, your Personal Information may be shared with the Australian Taxation Office or the Australian Securities and Investments Commission which will then exchange this information with similar overseas regulatory bodies as a result of Australia’s participation in the Common Reporting Standard and Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. Your Personal Information may also be shared with NSW Fair Trading and Consumer Affairs Victoria where required by law. 

Where in accordance with this Privacy Policy, we disclose your personal information to third parties who reside outside Australia, you agree and acknowledge that we are not required to ensure that those third parties comply with Australian privacy laws. Overseas organisations may be required to disclose information we share with them under a foreign law. In those instances, we will not be responsible for that disclosure.

Security of your Personal Information

Your Personal Information is stored in a manner that reasonably protects it from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure.

When your Personal Information is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was obtained, we will take reasonable steps to destroy or permanently de-identify your Personal Information. However, most of the Personal Information is or will be stored in client files which will be kept by us for a minimum of 7 years.

While we are committed to security, we cannot guarantee the security of any information that is transmitted to or by us over the Internet. The transmission and exchange of information is carried out at your own risk.

Access to your Personal Information

You may access the Personal Information we hold about you and to update and/or correct it, subject to certain exceptions. If you wish to access your Personal Information, please contact us in writing. Giant Leap will not charge any fee for your access request.

In order to protect your Personal Information we may require identification from you before releasing the requested information.

Maintaining the quality of your Personal Information

It is important to us that your Personal Information is up to date. We will take reasonable steps to make sure that your Personal Information is accurate, complete and up to date. If you find that the information we have is not up to date or is inaccurate, please advise us as soon as practicable so we can update our records and ensure we can continue to provide quality services to you.

Policy updates

We may, at any time and at our discretion, vary this Privacy Policy by publishing the amended Privacy Policy on our Website. We recommend you check our Website regularly to ensure you are aware of our current Privacy Policy.

Code of Conduct


This code of conduct formalises Giant Leap’s existing, long term commitment to creating a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for our network of founders and investors. 

Our commitment is governed by the laws of Victoria, New South Wales and Australia, designed to protect all workers from inequitable or harmful treatment, but extends beyond that to ensure the highest ethical standards across all of our conduct and how we treat each other.

We have set out this code to be clear about the expected conduct of each member of the Giant Leap team to ensure we are fostering a safe and inclusive space for all.

Giant Leap’s values

  • Act with radical candour – Care personally and challenge directly. We value self-awareness and acknowledge we don’t know all the answers. We trust others to highlight opportunities and blind spots that we can’t see.
  • Think with an abundance mindset – We seek to be generous and without expectation or ego when giving to others. We believe that a rising tide will lift all boats. We value collaboration and seek to grow the pie.
  • Lead by example – We exist to demonstrate the power of startups to solve the world’s problems to guide us to a cleaner, healthier, happier future. We act with courage, integrity and kindness to challenge the status quo.
  • Play the long game – We are strategic in our decision-making and think about the consequences of our actions and inactions. We respect the past, present and future.
  • Be human – We value human connection and seek joy in life. We understand the importance of relationships and acknowledge we are only one piece of the puzzle. Without others, there is no self.


We expect all members of the Giant Leap team, specifically all directors, permanent and temporary employees, and contractors, to abide by this code of conduct. The code applies to all settings associated with Giant Leap, both virtually and at in person events and conferences. 

Unacceptable behaviour

We expect all Giant Leap team members to treat all people they interact with respectfully. We believe discrimination, bullying, violence or harassment and victimisation is unacceptable behaviour.


Discrimination is treating, or proposing to treat, someone unfavourably because of a personal characteristic protected by the law, such as sex, age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or disability. 


Bullying is the repeated and intentional mistreatment of a person or group by an individual or group. It can be physical, verbal or psychological, and is often used to assert power over the victim.


Violence refers to the use of physical force or aggression to cause harm or damage to a person, property or animal. It can take many forms, including physical assault, threats, intimidation, and destruction of property.


Harassment is unwanted or unwelcome behaviour that is offensive, intimidating or hostile, and that interferes with a person's ability to work or study. It can take many forms, such as verbal abuse, unwanted physical contact, sexual advances, or persistent and unwanted attention.

Sexual harassment

Sexual harassment is a specific and serious form of harassment. It is defined as unwelcome sexual behaviour that causes a person to feel offended, humiliated or intimidated, where a reasonable person could have anticipated that reaction in the circumstances. Sexual harassment can be physical, spoken or written. 


Victimisation is subjecting or threatening to subject someone to a detriment because they have asserted their rights under equal opportunity law, made a complaint, helped someone else make a complaint, or refused to do something because it would be discrimination, sexual harassment or victimisation. Victimisation is against the law.

Complaint handling procedure

Giant Leap strongly encourages anyone to report any acts or suspected acts of discrimination, bullying, violence, or harassment.  We expect people in positions of power to be especially conscientious in reporting any violations they encounter (with the consent of the person involved if applicable) as they are less vulnerable to retaliation or pressure than people with less power.

Giant Leap will treat all reports of discrimination, bullying, violence, victimisation or harassment seriously, and Giant Leap will investigate thoroughly, promptly and confidentially (where appropriate). 

One may report violations in any of the following ways:

We aim to acknowledge reports within 48 hours, and to complete handling a report as soon as possible given the circumstances of the report. Actions we may take in response to a report include:

  • Nothing
  • Counselling (either or both parties)
  • Verbal warning 
  • Temporary ban from specific spaces or forums
  • A permanent ban from particular areas or forums 
  • Removal or adjustment of responsibilities
  • Termination of employment
  • Report to legal authorities

If you would like to recommend a particular action or response, please include your recommendation as part of the violation report.  

If possible and appropriate, we will make a statement about the report and any actions we took available to everyone aware of the original incident. We will strive to protect reporters or targets from retaliation whenever possible.


In writing this Code of Conduct we have consulted a number of other venture funds’ Codes including peer organisations such as Rampersand, Blackbird and Square Peg, along with other organisations including the University of Melbourne. 

In the interest of continuous improvement and learning, please reach out to with any feedback.
