We take our commitment to your privacy seriously, and we treat any information you provide to us with care.

By visiting www.love2donate.co.uk (“our website”) you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in our privacy policy, which are detailed below.

The website, www.love2donate.co.uk is operated and owned by L2D Limited.

Plain English Privacy Policy

L2D Limited is committed to protecting your privacy and promises only to use information collected about you in accordance with our Privacy Policy below:

Who We Are

  • We are L2D Limited (“Love2Donate”, “we”, “us”, or “our”), a company registered in England and Wales (Company No. 7277058), with a registered office at 6 Bevis Marks, Bury Court, London EC3A 7BA. We are registered with the Information Commissioner in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “Act”) and our Data Protection Registration number is Z3537091. For the purposes of the Act we are the data controller of your personal data.

What Information We Collect

  • When you interact with our website we may ask you for certain information and you may submit personal data to us (for example your name, phone number, postal address, email address and contact details).
  • Some examples of how information may be collected by us:
    • Information you provide us: we receive and store information that you submit when using our website.
    • Information automatically provided: we receive, process and store certain information whenever you interact with our website. Like many websites, we use “cookies” (see the ”Cookies” section below) and obtain certain information automatically when your web browser accesses our website. Information automatically received by us includes the IP address that your computer uses to connect to the internet; your computer, browser, operating system and internet connection details.
    • Email communications: If you no longer wish to receive email newsletters, please notify us using the links provided in each newsletter.
    • Telephone calls: From time to time we monitor and record telephone calls for training purposes and to improve the quality of our service to you.

How We Use this Information

  • Information is kept securely in accordance with our internal security policy and may be used to:
    • provide customer support services to you;
    • help prevent fraud (eg. we may check payment card details with our credit agency, who may keep a record of that information, and reserve the right to refuse donations and orders on that basis. Your credit rating can be checked for a nominal fee with the main UK agencies Equifax and Experian);
    • process donations and leave tributes
    • make returns to and answer queries from HMRC
  • By submitting your data to us you agree to this use. Without consent, we cannot process your donation or order.

Lawful Basis for Processing Your Data

  • Prior to making a payment for a donation and tribute to be left at www.love2donate.co.uk you will be asked to provide your permission for us to process the information you have supplied. L2D Limited requires the information you provide in order to successfully process payments and complete your tribute and donation. By ticking the confirmation box you are agreeing that we may process your payment and use the information you have supplied, with the exception of payment card details, to complete transactions and advise Funeral Directors and Charities of some or all of your information.

Data Retention Period

  • We only keep your information for as long as is necessary.
  • We will retain the information you provide to L2D Limited, excluding any payment details, for a period of 2191 days (6 years and a day). This is to ensure that we can satisfy any legal queries from HMRC. This requirement is described in detail HERE
  • Where a funeral director has instructed us to delete tribute pages, we will continue to hold your information for a period of four years in an unencrypted format. This is to enable us to make back-dated Gift Aid claims on behalf of charities who had not authorised L2D Limited to make Gift Aid claims at the time of your donation.

Data Security

  • Wherever possible, we use the latest security measures to protect your details when you interact with us. Love2Donate tributes and donations are collected using 128-bit SSL where this is possible, depending on the technology being used by the Funeral Director handling proceedings. All Credit and Debit card information is obtained under SSL and processed by SagePay (www.sagepay.co.uk). At no time whatsoever does L2D Limited have visibility of payment information and nor does L2D Limited store, either physically or electronically, payment card information.
  • Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
  • Anyone aged 16 years or under must get their parent’s or guardian’s permission in order to use our services. Users without this permission are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
