2. We are fully registered under the Data Protection Act 1998 ("DPA") and comply with European Union data protection laws, regulations, principles and, wherever possible, recommended best practice. To ensure we comply with all protection the DPA affords to you we have set out below how we intend to utilise the information provided by you when you register a deceased individual. Further information on the DPA is available on the Internet at www.ico.gov.uk.
3. When you register the details of a deceased individual ("Deceased Details") on the Site, the Deceased Details are entered into a secure data bank. Any company holding a current licence with us wishing to mail out details of its products and services will then be able to check their mailing list against the Deceased Details held on The Bereavement Register®. This will inform the company that your loved one has passed away and help prevent any future unwanted mailings. Moreover, some of the companies that use The Bereavement Register® may use the Deceased Details to assist in the prevention of fraud and identity theft. When you provide us the Deceased Details, we also ask you to give us some of your personal details as well such as your name, your address, your relationship to the deceased and other information ("Personal Details"). These Personal Details are used for purposes of verification and we may need to contact you to verify the Deceased Details. You can unsubscribe at any time.
4. Your Personal Details will be kept confidential by RG and its subsidiaries and affiliated companies and will not be passed on to external companies, sponsors and advertisers. We will not sell, transfer or assign your Personal Details to another entity unless this is done in the context of the sale of all or part of our business.
5. In accordance with statutory obligations, we only collect Personal Details from you necessary for us to verify the Deceased Details. You have the option at any time to write to us at the address below to request that we remove your details from our database. We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity.
