To protect any personal information held on computer, Wolverhampton City Council is registered under the Data Protection Act 1998. This allows members to check that their details held are accurate. The West Midlands Pension Fund/Wolverhampton City Council may, if it chooses, pass certain details to a third party, if the third party is carrying out an administrative function of the Fund - the Fund’s AVC provider, for example. This authority is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers and, to this end, may use information for the prevention and detection of fraud. It may also share this information with other bodies administering public funds solely for these purposes. Additionally the Fund may respond to requests for personal information from other public bodies, eg, HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in connection with their statutory duties. Members have a right to see a copy of the information held about them on application to the City Council’s Data Protection Officer.
