What do we use your information for?

We ask for certain kinds of information in order to provide you with the funeral concierge services you are entitled to as an Everest client.  Everest may use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • Identify usage trends and analytics.
  • Comply with legal obligations to which we are subject.
  • Cooperate with regulators and law enforcement bodies.

We must have a legal basis to process your personal information.  In most cases the legal basis will be one of the following:

  • To fulfil our contractual obligations to you, for example to provide our services to you and to authenticate your access to our services.
  • To comply with our legal obligations.
  • To meet our legitimate interests, for example to understand how you use our services and to enable us to derive knowledge from that to enable us to develop new services.

When we process personal information to meet our legitimate interests, we put in place robust safeguards to ensure that your privacy is protected and to ensure that our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms.

We may obtain your explicit consent to collect and use certain types of personal information when we are required to do so by law.  If we ask for your consent to process your personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us using the details at the end of this Privacy Policy.

How do we protect your information?
