What is Open Banking

In 2018 the Australian Government passed a legislation called the Consumer Data Right (CDR). CDR is also referred to as Open Banking and gives Australians greater control over their data, providing customers and small businesses a choice about how their financial data is shared with third parties. Open Banking will encourage competition between service providers, leading to better prices for customers and more innovative products and services.

What this means for Unity Bank members

Unity Bank members can choose to share their member details, account information and transaction history for some accounts with an Accredited Data Recipient.

Please refer to our Consumer Data Right policy for more information on how Unity Bank deals with your data under the CDR.

 


Sharing your data

  • Step 1 Give consent
    You give permission for an Accredited Data Recipient to access your personal data. This will be via their website or app.
  • Step 2 Confirmation of identity
    You will be redirected to a Unity Bank website where you will be verified with your internet banking login and an SMS One Time Password to your mobile phone number.
  • Step 3 Select data to be shared
    Confirm and authorise the data you would like to share with the provider.
  • Step 4 Data shared
    The data you selected to be shared will be transferred to the Accredited Data Recipient in a machine-readable format for the purpose you chose.
  • Step 5 Manage consents
    You will be able to view and manage the consents you have created, including withdrawing them through your Unity Bank internet banking.
