The retiring agent abuses the company's sensitive information - a refresh to protect your company's sensitive information.

ATF the Dargan Financial Discretionary Trust v Nassif Issac[2017] NSWSC 1077, the New South Wales Supreme Court found that a New South Wales agent had violated its obligation to maintain secrecy after the deal by taking over and using a customer record of his former company in conditions where the customer name was available on the former company's Facebook page.

It also found that the agent had failed to meet its commitments after the commitment by requesting and receiving assistance from customers of its former law office. Isaac, the Agent, was appointed by construction financing experts as a mortgages agent from 8 August 2012 to 30 November 2016 on the basis of a contract (contract).

Mr Isaac announced his agreement with experts on mortgages on 30 November 2016 and started working as a real estate agent with his rival RAMS UK based Pty Ltd (RAMS) in December 2016. When Mr Isaac retired, he directly managed 25% of Home Loan Experts' customers. Mr Isaacs also had privileged contact with customer listings containing Home Loan Experts clients' confidential information.

Mr Isaacs confirmed that he had kept these records, used them and passed them on to RAMS. Following the end of the contract with construction financing experts, Mr Isaacs remained with RAMS for the customers of construction financing experts. Mr Isaac said that Home Loan Expert's customer base was no longer private, as some of his customers were identified by posts on Home Loan Experts' Facebook page.

The housing loan specialists initiated a procedure against Mr Isaacs alleging that Mr Isaacs had infringed the agreement and, inter alia, the fair obligation of good faith because Mr Isaacs had maintained and continued to use the RAMS customer base of housing loan specialists (Confidentiality Claim). The agreement, which is pertinent to the confidentiality claim, sets out the following:

"Keep in confidence, during the Agreement and for a term not less than 10 years after this Agreement is terminated, all confidential and proprietary information and not use, post, debate or reveal any confidential information about [Home Loan Experts]'s operations, information or data, whether in confidence or otherwise, at any time, without notice, without notice, and not to use, post, debate or reveal any information, whether in confidence or otherwise, about [...], without limiting the scope of the Agreement, or any other information, whether in confidence or otherwise, about [...], whether or not such information or data includes, but is not limited to, customer listings and customer data...".

Sackar J. had to verify in its ruling whether the information classified as sensitive by the mortgage experts had a level of trust and whether they had suffered a loss of trust by publicly disclosing that information. Sackar J. made reference in its ruling to the following set basic rules for confidentiality and fair expectations:

To file an allegation of violation of reasonable trust, information allegedly confidential: Isaac' s claim that the customer base had diminished its'quality of trust', as some of its customers could be identified from contributions on the Facebook page of the mortgage experts, was refuted by Sackar J.

Sackar J found that customers' contributions on Facebook did not reduce the trust of the customer base in situations where data protection preferences may not have allowed users to gain additional information beyond their name or get in touch with customers, and that the customer base did not contain only the customer's contractual information.

In particular, Sackar J noted that the customer lists included not only the customer's identities and contacts, but also more personal information about the customer's asset and liability position and their capacity to serve loans - the latter being of the greatest economic value to mortgage professionals.

As Sackar J. noted, this information'appears to have the necessary level of trust and has been conveyed in situations that introduce an implied trust on the grounds of its economic value and level of detail and privacy in relation to the customer's finance profile'[224]. For Sackar J., on this evidence, Mr Isaacs was of the opinion that he had violated his contractually and reasonably required duty of trust by maintaining and using the customer base of mortgage experts.

Sackar J, on that ground, ordered actions for injunctive relief in relation to the action for confidentiality which prevented Mr Isaac from using or revealing the customer lists of mortgage experts and ordered compensation for the damage caused by Mr Isaac's failure to comply with his contract commitments. ATF the Dargan Financial Discretionary Trust v Nassif Issac[2017] NSWSC 1077 underlines the need for employer to guarantee that your company handles sensitive information in a way that guarantees that it can be identified as sensitive.

Pay particular attention to how sensitive information is communicated to staff or subcontractors and whether that information is clearly communicated to them in the strictest confidentiality; your company will protect sensitive information that is communicated during the course of your work. Specifically, you will make sure that your job agreements and subcontractor agreements contain information that is sensitive to your company and how your staff should handle the sensitive information they have during and after work.
