The collection, storage and use of personal data under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018
How we use your information:
This privacy notice tells you how we, Harwood Cremations, will collect and use your personal data for provision of services, cookies, complaints etc.
Why does Harwood Cremations need to collect and store personal data?
In order for us to provide you with a funeral service that meets your requirements and our legal obligations we need to collect personal data for fulfilment of the contract and any related correspondence. In any event, we are committed to ensuring that the information we collect and use is appropriate for this purpose and does not constitute an invasion of your privacy.
In terms of being contacted for marketing purposes Harwood Cremations would contact you for separate consent.
Will Harwood Cremations share my personal data with anyone else?
We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to Harwood Cremations in the course of dealing with you. Any third parties that we may share your data with are obliged to keep your details securely, and to use them only to fulfil the service they provide on behalf of Harwood Cremations When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with Harwood Cremations procedures. If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.
How will Harwood Cremations use the personal data it collects about me?
Harwood Cremations will process (collect, store and use) the information you provide in a manner compatible with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will endeavour to keep your information accurate and up to date, and not keep it for longer than is necessary.
Harwood Cremations is required to retain information in accordance with the law, such as information needed for income tax and audit purposes. How long certain kinds of personal data should be kept may also be governed by specific business-sector requirements and agreed practices. Personal data may be held in addition to these periods depending on individual business needs.
Under what circumstances will Harwood Cremations contact me?
Our aim is not to be intrusive, and we undertake not to ask irrelevant or unnecessary questions. Moreover, the information you provide will be subject to rigorous measures and procedures to minimise the risk of unauthorised access or disclosure.
Can I find out the personal data that the organisation holds about me?
Harwood Cremations, at your request, can confirm what information we hold about you and how it is processed. If Harwood Cremations does hold personal data about you, you can request the following information:
Any details and information of automated decision making, such as profiling, and any meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and expected consequences of such processing.
Keeping on top of costs couldn’t be easier. There’s one fixed price of £1,400 with no hidden extras or expenses.
Whether you choose to collect the ashes from us, or have them scattered at our Memorial Gardens, the cost remains the same.
Harwood Park is owned and managed by the Austin Family, who have served the community as funeral directors for over three centuries.
