‘Other information’ is the data that you can store in the file created by yourself. This information is called ‘file data’. You are responsible for this information. We have no access to this data and cannot process file information for other purposes.
The Data Protection Act
The Data Protection Act (PDPA) applies to a full or partial automated processing of personal information except for the purpose of processing activities which are exclusively for personal or domestic use.
Chances are that file data also contains personal data, for example, photographs or film material, or text containing names. Although this constitutes an automated processing, the PDPA is not applicable. You will process the personal data in question, after all, purely for personal purposes. The file is therefore only accessible to you and the trustee(s) appointed by you.
Although the Data Protection Act does not apply to file information, we find it important that your personal data is secure. Therefore we would like to inform you about what we do for you and how we protect your data.
What we do for you?
When you enter or update your own MyMoriam file, you are making use of our interactive services, or if you use other services provided by us or have contact with us in any other form, we store this information on your behalf. The data used for your file is solely used for the purpose determined by you; filling in and compiling your own file. Here we are referring to texts, songs, videos, photos, names and addresses of others and everything you have entered.
We shall not have access to file information. Only you and the trustee(s) appointed by you have access to file information. Whether a trustee already has access to file information during your lifetime or only after your death, is your own decision.
What data do we process for our purposes?
We process your account details to keep in touch with you and your trustee(s), with regard to possible billing, to inform you about new activities and updates and to obtain anonymous statistical data. This lets us connect our products to better suit your needs. For this processing of personal data we, LifeCourse BV, Transistor 31, 1322 CK Almere, are responsible within the definitions of the Data Protection Act. You have the right to access, correct and delete your personal data. You can request this in writing to the above address or by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

File contents are not seen by us nor are they retrievable by third parties (such as search engines). All these measures are aimed to prevent any loss, unnecessary collection and further processing of personal data.
