This policy (together with our terms of service) sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.
Basis for 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.
To enter into and perform contracts with you: Where you ask us to provide services to you, we will process your personal data to provide these services to you. We need certain personal information about you to perform the services for you. If you do not wish to provide us with your personal data in this way, you will be unable to use our services.
To make our website better: We will also process your personal data in order to provide you with a more tailored experience when you visit our website. For example, we may use your personal data to tailor our website, make sure it is displayed in the most effective way for the device you are using. We also use various third party cookies to help us improve our website (more details are set out in the sections below) but we will not share your personal data with the third party analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our website.
We will also process your personal data for the purposes of making our website more secure, administering our website and internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and statistical and survey purposes.
The legal basis on which we process your personal data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to provide you with the best possible website we can, and to ensure that our website is kept secure.
For user research: We have a legitimate interest to contact you in relation to your experience of using our products and services. We will use any feedback provided to tailor and improve our services. We may also conduct research to develop new products and services where input from users' experience would inform our approach.
For NobleWills marketing purposes: We may contact you if your recent activity suggests you might want to hear from us (for example, you entered one of our promotions, you have used our services or you have an annual subscription with us), unless you have already indicated that you do not wish to receive marking commmunications from us.
We process your personal data to form a view on what services, promotions or offers we think you may be interested in.
Our communications always include a link so you can unsubscribe. You can also let us know you would prefer not to be contacted by emailing [email protected] and clearly stating that you wish to be removed from our marketing list.
To create anonymised data sets: Anonymised data is information which cannot be used to identify a living person. It is useful for statisical analysis and identifying general trends. We will convert your personal data into an anonymised format so it can be used for press publication (for instance to show the age range of our customers, or geographical areas where we provide a high volume of service). Anonymised data is not personal data.
If our business is sold: We will transfer your personal data to a third party: in the event that we buy or sell any business or assets, in which case we will disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets (at all times in accordance with all applicable data protection laws); or if NobleWills or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by NobleWills about its customers will be one of the assets transferred to the purchaser.
In each case, the legal basis on which we process your personal data in these circumstances is our legitimate interest to ensure our business can be continued by a purchaser. If you object to our use of your personal data in this way, the relevant seller or buyer of our business may not be able to provide services to you.
