Privacy notice

The Scheme's trustees are responsible for looking after scheme members' pension benefits and legally responsible for looking after members personal information. The trustees have determined that they are using and storing personal data for members legitimate interests in order to ensure that they receive the correct benefits, either now or in the future.

Personal data will only ever be shared for this purpose with the consultants and actuaries of the scheme. Once you are in receipt of your RYA pension we are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years, after which time it will be destroyed. If at any point you believe the information we process on you is incorrect you can request to see this information and have it corrected, or even deleted.

If you wish to raise a complaint on how we have handled your personal data you can contact the trustees, or the Data Protection Officer for the RYA, who will investigate the matter. The Data Protection Officer is Dave Strain and you can contact him at dpo@rya.org.uk

If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are processing your personal data not in accordance with the law you can complain to the Information Commissioner's Office.
