Section A

Data protection

The Trustee of the BT Pension Scheme is the “data controller” of your personal data for the purpose of the UK Data Protection Act 1998. Please note that the Trustee may use personal information about you and your dependants for reasons connected to its administration of the Scheme (including, for example, the calculation and payment of benefits) and the putting in place of appropriate insurance to provide long term protection and income to the Scheme. 

The Trustee may disclose personal information about you and your dependants to members of its group of companies, professional advisors (such as Willis Towers Watson and the Scheme Actuary) who in certain circumstances will also be ‘data controllers’, service providers, administrators (such as BT Pensions Scheme Management Limited and Accenture), BT plc (as the sponsoring employer of the Scheme) and members of its group of companies, and insurance companies (such as Prudential Insurance Company of America), as may be necessary or desirable to administer the Scheme and/or comply with contractual obligations relating to it. This may require the personal information to be sent to, and stored or processed at, a country outside of the European Economic Area. Where the country to which the personal information is transferred may not offer an equivalent level of protection for personal information to the laws of the UK, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information is treated securely.
