General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

New data protection laws came into force on 25 May 2018.

This changed how organisations process and handle data with the key aim of giving greater protection and rights to individuals. 

The Environment Agency Pension Fund (EAPF) is a Data Controller under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). This means we store, hold and manage your personal data in line with statutory requirements to enable us to provide you with pension administration services. To enable us to carry out our statutory duty, we are required to share your information with certain bodies, but will only do so in limited circumstances.

For more information about how we hold your data, who we share it with and what rights you have to request information from the Fund, please read our full privacy policy.

If you'd like to know more about GDPR, download our helpful Q&A factsheet.

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. The Website Privacy Notice explains how we use information about you:

  • which your employer or pension scheme trustee has provided to us, and
  • any additional information you provide via the www.eapf.org.uk website.

Depending on the services we are providing to your employer or pension scheme trustee you may be able to limit the use of that information, and where that is possible this is explained in our full website privacy notice which you can read by clicking the link below.

This privacy notice also explains the procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.
