No. The data being transmitted through the AA is encrypted. Also, AAs are not allowed to store, process and sell the customer’s data. This is designed to ensure AAs do not have a conflict of interest when designing processes to obtain consent for access to user data.
Currently only asset based data is available (bank accounts, deposits, mutual funds, insurance policies, pension funds). Other data types are likely to be added over time.
