Protecting your personal data

As you may be aware, data protection law is changing from 25 May 2018. These changes affect how the Trustee of the Scheme uses and looks after the personal data we hold about you. They also give you additional rights in relation to your personal data.

Details of the personal data the Trustee holds, how they use that information and who they share it with are set out in the Trustee’s privacy notice. The privacy notice also sets out your rights in connection with the personal data held about you by the Trustee, and who to contact if you want to exercise those rights, make a complaint, or generally have any questions. All members of the Plan will shortly receive a postal communication highlighting where you can find the Trustees privacy notice. The privacy notice along with further information on data protection can be found by clicking here. Alternatively, if you prefer to receive a hard copy of the notice, please contact Robert Harwood, the Secretary of the Trustees at: robert.harwood@telefonica.com  

 

Keeping your information up-to-date

It is your responsibility to keep the Trustee up-to-date with any changes to your personal information, including your marital status, contact and bank details. Without this information, there may be delays in paying benefits to you or your dependants. To update your details please contact the scheme administrator(s) directly. If you are an employee of Telefónica please also notify ‘My HR’ of any changes. You can find the scheme administrator(s) and ‘My HRs’ contact details by clicking here.
