Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with access to our will writing or funeral comparison services). In this case, we may have to cancel a service you have asked us to provide but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and up to date. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
KEEPING YOUR DATA SECURE
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
HOW WE WILL COLLECT YOUR DATA
- Direct interactions. You may give us any of the categories of data identified above by filling in forms on our Site or by corresponding with us in person or by phone, e-mail or otherwise. This includes personal data you provide when you:
- register to use our Site;
- access our services through the Site;
- request marketing communications to be sent to you;
- give us some feedback.
- Third parties or publicly available sources. We may receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources such as analytics providers, advertising networks and/or search information providers based inside the EEA. We may also receive information about you from a medical practitioner or other organisation with whom you authorise to enter personal data on your behalf into the Site.
- Contact, Financial and Transaction Data (if applicable) from providers of technical, payment and delivery services inside the EEA.
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Child has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove that information from our servers.
WHY WE WILL USE YOUR DATA
- Consent: you have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose such as share information with your medical practitioner or marketing communications;
- Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with you (for example, to process and deliver our services to you and to manage our relationship with you), or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract;
- Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (not including contractual obligations);
- Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life; and
- Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests (for example to administer and maintain our website) or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides those legitimate interests. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
We rely on the following legitimate interests when processing your personal data:
- To manage our business and comply with our obligations to our patients, staff and suppliers;
- To protect our proprietary and commercially sensitive information;
- To administer and maintain our website.
We also need to satisfy specific conditions for using your health data. We rely upon the following ground in this regard:
- Healthcare provision: the processing of data concerning your health is necessary for us to deliver our services to you and to allow access the features of our services through the Site and to keep you in contact with your medical practitioner (where applicable).
Click here to find out more on the Information Commissioner’s Office website about the types of lawful basis that we will rely on to process your personal data.
Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than as described below. However, where we do ask for your consent we will do so in order to comply with the principle that any processing must be lawful, fair and transparent.
DISCLOSING YOUR PERSONAL DATA
- Sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with them or you;
- Service providers acting as processors who provide IT and system administration services.
- Medical Practitioners to allow them to deliver their medical services to you;
- Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers based who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accounting services.
If you are using our Site within the United Kingdom or the European Economic Area (EEA) then we do not transfer your personal data outside the EEA. Visitors from outside this jurisdiction will involve transfers outside the EEA.
CHANGE OF PURPOSE
If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data (as defined above) to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which products, services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing).
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or purchased products or services from us and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.
We will always get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any other company for marketing purposes.
You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by following the opt-out links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time.
HOW LONG WE WILL KEEP YOUR DATA
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. We may also share this anonymised data with other third parties.

- Request correction of your personal data;
- Request erasure of your personal data;
