Up is a brand of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Limited ABN 11 068 049 178 AFSL/Australian Credit Licence 237879.
This Consumer Data Right Policy applies solely to Up.
Up (“we / us”) recognises the importance of protecting your privacy and managing your banking 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 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.
The Consumer Data Right (“CDR”)
The CDR gives you the right to share your banking data with participants 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 the CDR facilitates the automated, secure sharing of your banking data only with your express 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. For example, you might opt to securely share your transaction data with an external budgeting tool provider.
The CDR requires that we provide access to banking data about products we offer including banking data about the features and descriptions of our products, interest rates, fees and charges and eligibility criteria.
Product banking data is publicly available information that can only be consumed by specialized software systems. This banking data can be used by businesses—such as comparison websites—to compare products on the market.
We do not charge a fee for access to product banking data.
Data made available under the CDR
CDR data we hold about you that we are required to make available includes:
- Your name
- Your contact details (address, phone number, email address)
- Your account data, including your account number, accounts balances, scheduled payments and payees
- Your transaction records, including dates, amounts, descriptions and other parties involved
- Information about products you hold with us
Up CDR data includes transactions dating back to the time your accounts were created with us. We won’t share your CDR data without your consent.
How to access your Up CDR data
You can opt to share your Up CDR data with an Accredited Data Recipient, so that they can provide goods or services to you based on your banking data.

- We’ll ask you to select which accounts you wish to share banking data from and we’ll confirm the data that the Accredited Data Recipient has requested, including the time period for which your banking data will be shared.
- You have the option to confirm or decline any request to share CDR data with an Accredited Data Recipient.
- Finally, you are redirected back to the Accredited Data Recipient’s website (or app).
