What personal data we collect and why we collect it

If you are a member of one of our member synagogues then you are also a member of JJBS.  We regularly receive information from the synagogue which is your name, gender, address and date of birth.  If you have a spouse or partner then we associate your record with your partner. We also receive name and date of birth for any children under 21 who are included as family members of the synagogue.

The legal basis for processing your personal data is that we have a legitimate interest in doing so.  We need to process the data to enable us to be able to provide you with a funeral at short notice when necessary.

We also process this information to enable us to estimate the future liabilities of the JJBS and therefore to set a price.  We never use this information for marketing purposes and nor do we pass it onto any third parties.  If you pay us using a card then we do not keep your card payment details.

If you give us your contact details so that you can arrange a funeral for a relative or friend then we will not pass this information onto any other person except for the purposes of arranging the funeral or stone setting eg the undertaker, the crematorium and stonemason.  We will give you all details of the information we hold on you if you ask.

Once someone has died they are no longer subject to the regulations and we hold the information about them indefinitely.

For the purposes of the Act, the Data Controller is the organisation itself and the Data Processor is Ashgoal Limited.

There are CCTV cameras at both the Western Cemetery and the Woodland Cemetery which record activity on our grounds and near the prayer halls.  The purpose of the CCTV is for security and to help with any accidents and crime prevention. The information will be shared with the police if necessary.

If you terminate your membership with the synagogue you can request to be forgotten but if you wish to re-join and we have no prior information then you may lose some of your membership rights and also your right to a future discounted non member funeral.

Who we share your data with

We don’t share your data with any third party unless it is required for us to be able to provide our services.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

You can ask us to remove your contact details if you arranged a funeral for someone else but if you do, then if there is a problem with a tombstone at any time in the future, we reserve the right to remove the stone or lay it flat to prevent injury.
