No matter how carefully you track deceased individual information on your house file, every time you rent an outside list, you risk sending a promotion piece to someone recently deceased. Or worse, having one of your telemarketers attempt to contact someone who is dead and by doing so cause unnecessary pain to their survivors. These references to someone they have lost can come across as insensitive to their survivors. It also wastes valuable marketing dollars!
We offer two Deceased Files:
· The Recently Recorded Deceased File contains recorded deaths for the past 24 months. An annual subscription with monthly downloads is available for $3,295. (Service providers must ensure that their clients have an active subscription to the RRDF file.)
· The Deceased Do Not Contact List contains opt-outs submitted by friends and family of the deceased. An annual subscription with monthly downloads is available for $500 and $700 for end users and service providers, respectively.
The Recently Recorded Deceased File
How Does It Work?
The Recently Recorded Deceased File is constructed from a variety of public and proprietary sources. It contains over 11 million deaths recorded during the previous 24 months and is refreshed monthly, adding approximately 900,000 new names and addresses. Each month, new names will be added and names older than 24 months removed. It is the most accurate deceased list available.
Because of data licensing agreements, subscribers will only be able to use each monthly file for 45 days – replacement files will be available monthly. The data cannot be accumulated from month to month or year to year. Also, service providers cannot scrub customer lists unless the client subscribes to the RRDF.. (Service Providers are defined as organizations cleaning lists owned by others.)
