What personal data we collect and why we collect it
The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) (May 2018) require us to expressly state how we intend to collect, process and manage your personal data.
GDPR outlines 6 different lawful reasons why we may process your data; Consent, Contract, Legal Obligation, Vital Interests, Public Task, and Legitimate Interest.
– Consent: By purchasing a product or instructing a service from Brilliant Estate Planning, you are consenting to us processing your data in relation to the service you require.
– Legal Obligation: If you ask us to submit and process any financial services product such as Wills, Lasting Power of Attorneys and/or Trusts then we will have to comply with statutory legal requirements and requirements set out by the industry regulator in each circumstance. This will necessitate that we process your data in accordance with industry guidelines.
– Legitimate Interest: By seeking advice from our organisation either in person, via email/ social media, or via telephone and/or by purchasing a financial services product from us we class you as a client and we therefore have a legitimate interest in retaining your data for the purposes of managing the advice process and products that we may arrange for you. We will also keep in touch with you electronically via email to keep you periodically updated on industry updates and product enhancements which may be of interest and/or relevant to you. You have the right to opt out of these communications at any time by notifying us via email to email@example.com
– Legitimate Interest: We will hold onto your data for the duration of your product or service and thereafter unless you specifically opt out of these communications. Your data will be held by Brilliant Estate Planning in compliance with GDPR.
