Processing personal data
Personal data is any information which can (or could be used to) identify a living person.
The paragraphs in this section explain how and why we process your personal data, as well as the legal basis on which we carry out this processing.
When you request services from us, we will use your personal information to provide these services to you. To provide the services to you, we need certain information about you. You will not be able to use our services if you do not provide us with your personal information in this manner.
Our analysis of personal data is used to identify areas for improvement of our services, and we sometimes engage third parties to help us in carrying out this analysis. This can include recording calls to analyse and improve our services. We may analyse feedback from you which you may have provided on our website contact form, chat function or via emails.
We will also use your personal data to give you a more tailored experience when you visit our (simplewasiyat.com) website. We may use your personal data, for example, to customize our website, making sure it displays in the most effective way for the device you are using. The third-party analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimization of our website may also use third party cookies to help us improve it (more information is provided below), but we will not share your personal data with them.
Your personal data may also be used to make our website more secure, to administer our website, and for internal purposes, such as troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research, and statistical analysis.
Our legal basis in processing your data in these circumstances relates to optimising website visitor engagement, informing future content and ensuring the security of our website.
Whenever we conduct user research, we have a legitimate interest in finding out how our products and services are being used by you. The feedback we receive will be used to tailor and improve our services. Additionally, we may conduct market research to develop new products and services that incorporate input from our users' experiences.
For Simple Wasiyat marketing purposes: Unless you have already indicated that you do not want to receive marketing communications from us, we may contact you if your recent activity suggests you may be interested in hearing from us (for example, you entered one of our promotions, used our services, or have an annual subscription with us).
By using your personal data, we can determine what services, promotions, and offers you may be interested in.
Every communication we send includes a link to unsubscribe. If you would prefer not to be contacted, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and clearly state you would like to be removed from our marketing list.
Charities may contact you if you permit them to:
Some of our charities ask if you're okay with receiving marketing communications from them (for example, if you've been referred to our services or left a gift to the charity in your will). By providing your consent, we will send your personal information to the charity to enable them to contact you directly. If you change your mind and decide you don't want to be contacted by the charity, you should let them know (their communications should also contain an unsubscribe link).
Unless you have indicated to us that sharing your personal information with the charity for their marketing communications is not something you want us to do, you will not receive a prompt to ask for your consent to share your personal information with them. Simple Wasiyat has an agreement with the charity whereby we give them your contact information so they can reach out to you directly (unless you have suggested that we not share your personal information for this purpose).
We will share some basic information relating to you (name, address, date of birth and contact information) to allow our charity partners to assess and improve their legacy campaigns.
In order to track and attribute referrals and campaigns from our commercial partners: Where you have been referred by one of our commercial partners, we will share some basic information relating to you with our commercial partners to track referrals. We will be using this information in addition to your communication preferences, and if you have not consented, it will not be used for marketing purposes.
Referrals and campaigns from commercial partners can be used to determine responsibility.
The information which cannot be used to identify a living individual is anonymised data. Analyses of anonymised data can be helpful for understanding trends. The personal information you provide to us will be anonymous so it can be used for press publications (e.g., to show the age range of our clients or areas in which we provide a high volume of services) and to help our charitable partners raise money through gifts in wills by assisting them with the evaluation of their marketing campaigns. Personal information is not included in anonymised data.
In the event we sell our business: We will transfer your personal data to a third party: In the event that Simple Wasiyat or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case the personal data held by Simle Wasiyat about its clients will be transferred to the new owner (according to all applicable data protection laws); or when Siple Wasiyat or substantially all of its assets are sold or merged with another company, in which case you will be informed that your personal data will be shared with the prospective seller or buyer of Simple Wasiyat.
In every case, the legal basis on which we process your personal data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to ensure our business can be carried on by a purchaser. Our buyer may not be able to provide you with services if you object to us using your personal data in this way.
