We have adopted the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs) contained in the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (the Privacy Act). The APPs govern the way in which we collect, use, disclose, store, secure and dispose of your Personal Information.
A copy of the APPs may be obtained from the website of The Office of the Australian Information Commissioner at www.aoic.gov.au.
Personal Information means information or an opinion, whether true or not and whether recorded in material form or not, about an individual who is identified or reasonably identifiable.
Examples of Personal Information we may collect include, but is not limited to:
This Personal Information is obtained in many ways including funding applications through the website and email correspondence. We don’t guarantee website links or policy of authorised third parties.
The purposes for which we collect, hold and use your personal information may include:
When we collect Personal Information we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it. You may unsubscribe from our mailing/marketing lists at any time by contacting us in writing.
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.
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.
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.
Your Personal Information may be disclosed:
We may disclose your Personal Information to:
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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 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.
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:
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.
