What We Collect
Personal Information. We collect personal information you choose to provide to us in connection with your activities on the Site, such as using our pre-planning services, subscribing to obituary notifications, and so on. This information may include your name, email and postal address, phone number, and any other information you submit on the Site.
Other User Information. In addition, we automatically gather certain other potentially identifying information and store it in log files. This information includes (as applicable) browser type and version, operating system and network, referring/exit pages, date/time stamp, whether you are a new or returning visitor, and frequency of visits. We collect and store this information on an individual basis and in aggregate, or combined, form; we do not connect it to an individual user’s personal information.
Analytics. To determine how many users visit our Site, how often they visit the Site, and to better understand the areas of greatest interest to our visitors, we use a tool called “Google Analytics” to compile this information for us. As a result of your visit to our Site, Google may collect information such as your domain type, your IP address, and clickstream information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of analytics tools with personally identifiable information. For more information about the analytics company’s ability to use and share information about your visits to this Site, see https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
Ad Networks. As you browse our Site, advertising cookies may be placed on your computer to help us understand what products and services you are interested in. When you visit other sites, our display advertising partners let us show you retargeting advertising based on your interaction with our Site, if we choose to do so. In addition, we may show you ads of other companies on our Site, based on your activities on other sites. Our ad partners may collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address, or telephone number.
How We Use Information
We store and process your personal information in connection with the purposes for which you provided it (for example, to contact you in response to a request for information). We may also send you information about products and services we believe will be of interest to you, and/or contact you regarding such products and services.
We use other information we collect to analyze trends, to administer the Site, to improve the content of our web pages, and to make our Site more useful to visitors.
How We Share Information
We may share Personal Information we collect with third parties as reasonably necessary to provide the Site’s services. We may also share your information with trusted third parties so they can provide additional services through our Site. We may share your information to comply with law enforcement requests and judicial proceedings, and to ensure the safety and security of the Site. It is possible that, at some time in the future, our company may be sold along with its assets, or may engage in business transactions in which customer information is one of the assets transferred. In such a case, the customer information which we have gathered may be one of the business assets we transfer.
We do not rent or sell email addresses, postal addresses, or telephone contact information to unaffiliated third parties, except as described above.
How Long We Keep Information
We may retain login credentials and entered data indefinitely for technical purposes, market research, and other internal uses. We may retain obituaries, photographs, and remembrances perpetually, both for our own records and for the public to view. We reserve the right to delete information when it is no longer needed for any of the uses discussed in this Policy.
Correcting Your Information
You may request access to your Personal Information that we maintain. Send your request to the postal address or email address provided below. To help us process your request, please provide sufficient information to allow us to identify you in our records. We also offer the opportunity to have inaccuracies corrected in all information we maintain about you.
We reserve the right to ask for information verifying your identity prior to disclosing or correcting any information to you. Should we ask for verification, the information you provide to verify your identity will be used only for that purpose, and all copies of this information in our possession will be destroyed when the process is complete.
From time to time, we may use your information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our Policy.
