All material that the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (We/Us/Our) publishes, either online or offline, is subject to copyright. There is some material on the Financial Capability website you can reproduce without our approval, but other material requires our permission first.
Linking to the Financial Capability website
ASIC welcomes links from your website to the Financial Capability website. When linking to our website (the homepage or any page on the website), the following conditions must be followed:
- The context in which a link is inserted must not give people the impression that your website, or your company, is sponsored or endorsed by us, and must not embarrass us
- Links within your content must clearly take people to our website (e.g. pages must open in a new window and not appear as part of your navigation).
Linking from the Financial Capability website
We generally only link to websites of Government agencies, consumer advocates, financial counsellors, peak industry bodies or other organisations whose content:
- complements the relevant information on the Financial Capability website
- strengthens the key messages of the website or of particular ASIC campaigns
- does not compromise the independence and impartiality of our information.
When referring to content on the Financial Capability website, please link to the actual page on our website containing the relevant content. This ensures you are directing people to up-to-date content.
You must not reproduce extracts of our content on your website, newsletter or any other publication or communication channel, without obtaining written permission from us.
If we grant approval for you to reproduce our content, it will be subject to the following conditions:
- the material must be unaltered, and
- the source and date it was extracted are clearly acknowledged.
For example: ‘Source: Financial Capability website, www.financialcapability.gov.au, 30 November 2011’
Brochures and other downloadable documents
When referring to our brochures or other downloadable documents (Excel, Word, Powerpoint, etc.) please link to the relevant webpage on the Financial Capability website that contains the download link, rather than a PDF. This is because the actual link may change (causing users to get a broken link), or the content may be updated.
You must not make any of our brochures or documents downloadable from your own website.
You must not reproduce extracts of our brochures or downloadable documents, newsletters or other publications or communication channels, without obtaining written permission from us.
Even if you obtain written permission from us you may only reproduce extracts as long as the material is unaltered, and the source and the date extracted are clearly acknowledged.
For example: ‘Source: Financial Capability website, www.financialcapability.gov.au, 30 March 2011’
The ASIC and Financial Capability logos must never be reproduced. The only exception is when ASIC or Financial Capability are part of a joint publication, event or campaign. In these circumstances, you will need to email us to obtain our permission.
Once you have read the conditions above, you should email us to seek our permission before reproducing any content where permission is required.
