Privacy, CDR, and Energy Retailer Obligations
Happy New Year, and welcome to our third Consumer Data Right (CDR) newsletter for energy retailers.
As the new year commences, we wanted to spotlight one of the key elements of CDR for data holders: privacy.
This component of CDR has significant implications for retailers and will require time to ensure that all obligations are addressed appropriately.
As you are aware, energy retailers are already required to comply with strict privacy obligations. The new CDR framework introduces some new privacy obligations and varies some existing privacy
obligations under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).
We are partnering with law firm Gadens to ensure our clients understand and can meet the complex privacy requirements they are obligated to as CDR data holders.
Gadens specialise in data protection, privacy and cyber security issues, including in relation to compliance and business strategy, security risk management, technology transactions including outsourcing, investigations, dispute resolution, regulatory proceedings and enforcement.
This newsletter is brought to you in conjunction with their privacy and data security team.
