We understand the issues you face

Brand reputation

Sending communications to someone who is deceased can cause unnecessary distress to their relatives, potentially damaging your brand and reputation.

Campaign ROI

If your customer is deceased, and you're attempting to communicate with them - you'll end up wasting resource, which affects your campaign effectiveness and ROI.


If you're not regularly checking your customer database against mortality files, then you could be at risk of not meeting GDPR requirements.

Possibly the most important type of suppression

Communicating with deceased individuals through any channel can cause further upset to bereaved families, risking damage to your brand’s reputation and your bottom line through wasted resource. You could also open your organisation up to potential identity fraud.

You need to prove to the ICO that you've made reasonable effort to ensure that the personal data you hold is up to date and accurate.

We use a combination of datasets to ensure that your customer data is effectively screened against deceased records.
