Open Banking Data Sharing FAQ's

How do I manage my Open Banking data sharing consent?

If you have an individual account, you can opt in to share your data with accredited parties as part of Open Banking and Consumer Data Right. 

You're in control of when and who you share your data with. You can withdraw or change your existing consents at any time in the Consent Dashboard accessible through Heritage Online or the Mobile Banking App. 

Consent for joint accounts is being developed in the next stage of Consumer Data Right and Open Banking.

What data can I share from my Heritage accounts?

From 1 February 2022, you can consent to share specific data for your individual transaction, savings, home loan, mortgage offset, personal loan and credit card accounts. You can choose to share all this information, or only certain types of data including:

Bank Account Data

  • Savings, transaction and term deposit accounts
  • Credit card accounts
  • Home loans 
  • Mortgage offset accounts
  • Personal loans
  • Closed accounts

Bank Transaction Data

  • How many transactions you've done in a period of time
  • Any loan repayments
  • Any cheque bounces
  • Minimum balance with account
  • Incoming transactions
  • Outgoing transactions
  • Direct debits
  • Scheduled payments
  • Saved payee details

Bank Customer Data

  • Name
  • Occupation
  • Phone
  • Email address
  • Mail address
  • Residential address

In future releases, you'll be able to share joint account and non-individuals, partnerships, nominated reps and secondary users data.

How do I identify an accredited data recipient?

In this phase of Consumer Data Right, you can only consent to share your data with an accredited data recipient. When you authorise a new sharing consent through a third party, they must be accredited with the ACCC and meet certain rules and safeguards to access your data.

You can check the Register of Accredited Persons at cdr.gov.au at any time to confirm whether a business or person you are considering sharing your data with is accredited. Plus, all accredited data recipients are authorised to display the Consumer Data Right logo.
