Fair Cost Funerals
Fair Cost Funerals offer a number of services and products for which we collect and process your information in different ways. The following sections provide further details on what information we collect from you, how we use your information and who we share your information with. “Fair Cost Funerals/we/our/us” refers to Fair Cost Funerals, registered in England and Wales at our registered office address.
What information do we collect?
We collect information about you such as your name, home address, email address, and bank account or payment card details, but we will only collect this information if it is necessary for the purposes outlined below.
How do we use your information?
Fair Cost Funerals will process your data on the requirement that it is necessary to fulfil our contract with you when you enquire or purchase a service from us. If you enquire about one of our services, we will use this information to provide you with further details by either post or email. If you purchase one of our services, we will use the information you have provided to administer your funeral service. If required this involves sharing your information with our payment processors and legal advisors. We will retain your information for the duration of our relationship with you and for as long as we are required to fulfil our legal obligations. We review these retention periods on a regular basis to ensure we do not store unnecessary personal information.
In addition to the above we also process your information for the purposes of our own legitimate business interests:
To improve our customer services and obtain your feedback regarding our services
To develop new products and services
To review the effectiveness of our services
To better understand our customers’ decision making processes
To collect debt*
You may choose to opt-out of some or all of the above if possible (opting out is not possible for the items marked with an asterisks) by emailing email@example.com or you can telephone us on 01709 209655.
We sometimes employ third-party service providers and contractors to carry out our day to day activities and services. All of our service providers are carefully considered to ensure they handle your information with care and only for the purposes intended. It may be necessary for us to share some or all your information with these providers as necessary. We will always minimise the access and ensure data is securely destroyed when it is no longer required by our third party providers.
We would like to provide you with email marketing from time to time, however, we appreciate that email “spam” has become a problem in recent years. If you are a customer or you have previously asked us for information on our products, we may send you information on our range of products or services by email, unless you have asked us not to do so. If the reason you have given us personal information is to receive email information from us, we will continue to provide this information by email unless you ask us not to do so. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive email marketing from us, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or you can telephone us on 01709 209655.
