Cookies and GDPR policy
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
We do not transfer your data to any other organisation except Professional Advisers in the event of your Death.
Legal obligation: this processing is necessary for us to comply with the law (not including contractual obligations).
Your data is kept only on a secure server
If you wish us to remove the data we hold on you simply write to us confirming cancellation of your Will and removal of your data. You have the right to be forgotten and can request the erasure of personal data
You have the right to obtain:
* confirmation that we are processing your data; * access to your personal data; and
You can request information only in writing. We will provide a copy of the information free of charge. However, we can charge a ‘reasonable fee’ when a request is: * manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly if it is repetitive, unless we refuse to respond; or * for further copies of the same information (that’s previously been provided). This does not mean that we can charge for all subsequent access requests.
We must provide information without delay and at least within one calendar month of receiving it. We can extend this by a further two months for complex or numerous requests (in which case you must inform you and give an explanation).
You have the right to have personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or completed if it is incomplete. You can only make a request for rectification in writing.
We should respond to a request without delay and at least within one month of receipt.
You have a right to block or restrict the processing of your personal data. You can make a request only in writing.
The right to data portability allows you to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across different services. You can receive personal data or easily move, copy or transfer that data from one business to another in a safe and secure way
Individuals have a right to object to the processing of their personal data in certain circumstances. Whether it applies depends on your purposes for processing and our lawful basis for processing.
The GDPR provides safeguards for individuals against the risk that a potentially damaging decision is taken without human intervention. These are set out in Article 22.
Individuals have the right not to be subject to a decision when:
* it is based solely on automated processing, including profiling; and * it produces a legal effect or similarly significant effect on the individual. We can only carry out this type of processing if the decision is:
* necessary for entering into or performance of a contract between us and the individual; * authorised by law (eg for the purposes of fraud or tax evasion prevention); or * based on the individual’s explicit consent.
If one of these exceptions applies we must put in place suitable measures to safeguard the individual’s rights, freedoms and legitimate interests.
These measures must include at least the right for individuals to:
* obtain human intervention; * express their point of view; and * obtain an explanation of the decision and challenge it.
Individuals can exercise these rights only in writing.
