How do we use your information?
We use personal information collected via our Website for a variety of business purposes described below. We process your personal information for these purposes in reliance on our legitimate business interests, in order to enter into or perform a contract with you, with your consent, and/or for compliance with our legal obligations. We indicate the specific processing grounds we rely on next to each purpose listed below.
We use the information we collect or receive:
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 improve how we provide our services: We record calls to analyse and improve how we provide our services over the phone. The call recordings are retained in accordance with our period of storage. We partner with third parties (under contract) to provide these 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, and to administer our website and for 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.

Our communications always include a link so you can unsubscribe. You can also let us know if you would prefer not to be contacted by emailing email@example.com and clearly stating that you wish to be removed from our mailing list.
To create anonymised data sets: Anonymised data is information which cannot be used to identify a living person. It is useful for statistical 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 Tyde Group Limited or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by Tyde 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.
Why will we use your data?
The lawful bases for processing personal data are set out in Article 6 of the GDPR. We may process your personal data on more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. Please contact us if you need details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal data where more than one ground has been set out below. At least one of these must apply whenever we process personal data:
Consent: you have given clear consent for us to process your personal data for a specific purpose such as marketing communications;
Contract: the processing is necessary for a contract we have with you (for example, to process and deliver our services to you and to manage our relationship with you), or because you have asked us to take specific steps before entering into a contract;
Legal obligation: the processing is necessary for us to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (not including contractual obligations);
Vital interests: the processing is necessary to protect someone’s life; and
Legitimate interests: the processing is necessary for our legitimate interests (for example to administer and maintain our website) or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a good reason to protect your personal data which overrides those legitimate interests. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).
We rely on the following legitimate interests when processing your personal data:
- To manage our business and comply with our obligations to our customers, staff and suppliers;
- To protect our proprietary and commercially sensitive information;
- To administer and maintain our website.
Generally, we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than as described below. However, where we do ask for your consent we will do so in order to comply with the principle that any processing must be lawful, fair and transparent.

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You must not share your password with anyone.
Period of storage
Where you register on our Website and enter personal data but do not complete the process and create your will, we will retain your data for a period of 6 years after to ensure that we are able to assist you should you have any questions or feedback in relation to our services.
Due to the nature of the services and pursuant to Article 17(3) GDPR, if you complete a will using our service we will securely store your data indefinitely. This is in order to protect against legal claims, as well as to provide supporting information if your will is ever contested.
Where we have processed your personal data to provide you with marketing communications with your consent, we may contact you at least every 12 months to ensure you are happy to continue receiving such communications. If you tell us that you no longer wish to receive such communications, your personal data will be removed from our list.
