Consumer Data Right

The Consumer Data Right (CDR) is an opt-in service that allows consumers to share their data securely with authorized third parties called Accredited Data Recipients (ADRs).  This includes data held by electricity retailers.

The CDR is designed to provide Australian consumers with choice on how their data is used and shared, and in turn, choose from a range of tailored and innovative products and services. By permitting Dodo Power & Gas (DPG) to share your data, ADRs can help you make informed decisions about products available to you. 

There is no obligation to share your data. If you consent, you authorise your data to be shared with ADRs. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

The CDR allows you to share your data securely with ADRs. Sharing your data with the ADRs, can make it easier for you to:

  • Compare products and services; and

  • Access better value and improved services.

Important: DPG will never ask you to share your DPG login details, password or verification code with a third party.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be 18 years or older;

  • Have an active residential or small business account with DPG, or have had an active account within the last 24 months;

  • Not be a Commercial & Industrial Customer; and 

  • Not be an off-market embedded network customer (such as residential customers who live in apartment buildings, retirement villages, gated residential communities etc).

Yes! There are strict protocols that apply to both the collection of CDR data and use of that data under the Competition and Consumer Act and the CDR Rules.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) manages this process to ensure it is safe and secure for consumers. ADRs must go through a rigorous accreditation process to provide CDR services to you.

Your data will not be shared without your consent.

Important: DPG will never ask you to share your DPG login details, password or verification code with a third party. 

You can find a list of ADRs here. ADRs will ask for your consent to collect your data.

Once you have consented, you will be asked to confirm that you wish to share your data held by DPG. DPG will verify your identity using the email address recorded against your account and email you a one-time password to authorise the request.

You can revoke this access and stop sharing any time you like. Read more on how to revoke access.  

Multiple Accounts

If you have more than one electricity account with DPG, you will need to provide consent for each account separately. After entering the One-Time Password (OTP), select the first account you wish to provide consent for, then click continue.

Check the box and click continue.

You will then be asked to confirm that your data may be shared. Once confirmed, and the ADR has retrieved the associated data, the ADR will be able to trigger another request to share data, and you will be asked to provide consent again. Select the next account you wish to share data for. All accounts you have consented to share data for will be displayed in your consumer dashboard.
