Consumer Data Right

Our policy

The Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group (we/us) recognises the importance of protecting your privacy and managing your data in an open and transparent manner. We appreciate that the success of our business is largely dependent on a relationship of trust being established and maintained with past, current and prospective customers, shareholders and other individuals with whom we conduct business.

This Policy sets out how we will manage your banking data in accordance with the Consumer Data Right. It also outlines how you can request access to or correction of your banking data and our complaints process.

If you request us to do so, we will provide a copy of this policy to you electronically or in hard copy.

For further information about how we handle your personal information, please refer to our Privacy Policy.

The Consumer Data Right ('CDR')

The CDR gives you the right to share your data with different providers who are accredited under the CDR (Accredited Data Recipients). It is an opt-in system that gives you greater control over how your banking data is handled making it easier for you to access products and services.

Using CDR facilitates the automated, secure sharing of your banking data only with your consent. This means you can choose to share your existing banking data, such as your transaction history, interest rates and account balances, with other banks or Accredited Data Recipients. We do not charge a fee for sharing your data.

We do not provide voluntary consumer data or voluntary product data as defined in the CDR Rules.

Product Data

The CDR requires that we provide access to data about banking products we offer including data about the features and descriptions of our products, interest rates, fees and charges and eligibility criteria.

Product data is publicly available information that can only be consumed by Application Programme Interfaces. This data can be used by businesses, such as comparison sites, to compare products in the market.

We do not charge a fee for access to product data.
