We are the owners of all copyright, design, graphical and content elements, database rights and other intellectual property rights unless otherwise stated.
All images, logos, names and trademarks on the Websites are proprietary marks and belong to us and any applicable third parties. Unless otherwise agreed in writing with us, nothing on the Websites can be used by any other person or company and any unconsented use may constitute an infringement of our rights.
We have taken all reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy and completeness of the content of the Websites and we do our best to correct any errors and omissions as soon as we are aware of them. The information contained on the Websites is based on legislation and tax regulations in force at the time of publication and all benefits are always subject to relevant applicable limits such as the lifetime allowance and annual allowance set by HM Revenue & Customs (“HMRC”).
No information on the Websites represents a promise or guarantee of the amount of any benefits that you might receive at retirement or in any other circumstances. Benefits are determined by the rules of the Schemes and subject at all times to the prevailing HMRC limits and any other overriding statutory and regulatory provisions. Similarly, no information contained on the Websites represents an indication, promise or guarantee of investment performance.
If there is any conflict between any information given on the Websites and the trust deed and rules or any other Scheme document (the “Scheme Documents”), the Scheme Documents will prevail subject only to HMRC limits and any other statutory and/or regulatory provision. Copies of the Scheme Documents are available from us. We accept no liability arising out of or in connection with the use of or access to the Websites and access to and use of the Websites is entirely at the users’ own risk. In accessing and using the Websites, you are expressly agreeing to all the T&Cs but we would particularly draw your attention to those set out in this paragraph entitled “Disclaimer” together with those set out in the paragraph entitled “Important notice – financial and legal” immediately below.
If anything is unclear to you, we are happy to clarify general matters of fact or point you to further sources of help as suggested below. You can contact us at our registered office as set out above or via any of the online links.
Important notice - financial and legal advice
None of the content of the Websites constitutes financial advice for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 or otherwise. Any information that is provided to members, prospective members or any other person (whether an individual or a company) should be taken as general information only and not advice or recommendation of any kind (whether financial, legal or otherwise).
When providing general information to members, prospective members or any other person, we take reasonable care to make sure that this is accurate. However, any decision or choice made after accessing the Websites remains solely the individual's and we are not responsible in any way for such decisions and choices.
We would therefore strongly recommend that anyone accessing the information on the Websites takes independent financial advice in their individual circumstances. Where needed in their particular circumstances, we would also recommend that anyone who is in doubt as to the consequences of any decisions concerning their pension and other investments takes legal advice from a solicitor or seeks assistance from the Citizens’ Advice Bureau.
We accept no liability arising out of or in connection with any financial or other decisions that you choose to make having accessed our Websites.
More about the Trustee
The Trustee is a company (otherwise called a corporate trustee) and it is run by ten trustee directors - four elected by members, four elected by employers and two co-opted by the elected directors.
The day-to-day administration has been carried out by the Trustee which has been administering pension schemes since 1946. The Trustee is directly answerable to its beneficiaries which include the employers who choose to participate in the Trustee’s pension schemes, the active members, pensioners and deferred members (those who have left employment to which the scheme relates) who belong to the Schemes. The Trustee is not an insurance company.
In addition, TPTRSL and TPTIML provide specialised services such as administration and investment management to the Schemes. TPTRSL and TPTIML are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Trustee.
