Just hoping for some advice/opinions on the following topic - I pay my rent via Direct Debit and as far as I'm concerned this works just fine but the real estate are hounding me to sign up to their "new and exciting payment platform" which involves handing over all my details to some new third party app and agreeing to all their terms and conditions.
From one of their many emails. (Not sure what "seize to exist" means) -
"Kolmeo is an Australian owned software company with a payment platform called Assembly, (Assembly is backed by Westpac), both companies are located in Melbourne. Please rest assured that the companies adhere to the Australian Privacy Act and take any privacy concerns you have seriously. Our technology is improving / being upgraded and the new payments platform needs your consent to pay funds to your nominated account or collect funds from you via direct debit / BPAY. This does mean moving forward from the 12th July your current means of payment will seize to exist."
I feel quite resistant to this, I have enough accounts/passwords/apps/etc in my life holding all my info and waiting for a data breach. I told them I am not interested, I am happy with the current arrangement and please stop asking me about it. Am I being a dufus?
