We take Data Protection very seriously at Inheritance Data and understand that appropriate security measures must be taken to protect your client’s personal data.
The Data Protection Act (DPA) is a law designed to protect personal data. Our asset searching services comply with the Data Protection Act as we are only researching accounts that belong to people who are deceased.
We are registered with the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and our reference number is ZA107881. This means that we are regulated to ensure we are complying with data security legislation.
After a search request, the only information we will receive from each financial institution is whether or not an account exists in the name of the deceased and the status of each holding (active/closed).
We will provide as much information as possible to help the claim process, including reference and contact numbers. We also provide any documentation issued by each FI.
