National Employment Savings Trust (NEST) Corporation ('we' or 'us') takes your privacy seriously. Please read this Privacy policy, our privacy information notices below, help areas (when interacting with our website) and our Cookies policy. Together they explain our data protection policy and describe how we’ll use any personal data we collect from you or that is provided to us.

For the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679,  and the Data Protection Act 2018, in most instances, NEST Corporation is the controller for the processing of personal information we hold about you.

Change to Data protection law

Legislation governing the use of your personal information has changed. In May 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation came into force and the UK Data Protection Act 2018 was passed.  You can read about the changes on the ICO’s website.

In line with the above changes, NEST is updating this policy and has prepared privacy information notices so that you can find out how we use your personal information. 

In addition, NEST has prepared this frequently asked questions document for anyone seeking additional information on GDPR not contained in the relevant privacy notices below.

Security and safe storage of your personal information

The security of your personal information is very important to us and we take this matter very seriously.  We’ll use appropriate procedures and security features to process and protect your information.  We have in place a robust framework to ensure the security of your information.
