At Funeral Basics, we understand that privacy is an important issue for visitors to the website (www.funeralbasics.org). The following information is designed to help visitors understand what information we gather from our site, and how we handle the information once we gather it.
Personal Information Collected on this Website
Funeral Basics collects personal information that site visitors provide when they complete any online form, application, or survey. Information provided in a request for service or information is forwarded to the Funeral Basics affiliate or agent that will respond to the request. If site visitors express interest in an appointment with an Funeral Basics representative, the information they provide online is forwarded to a Funeral Basics representative in the area in which the site visitor lives. Funeral Basics may contact visitors who have submitted a request for additional information about the request. FDLIC may use information submitted in one of our online forms to ask site visitors to complete a voluntary customer satisfaction survey. In order to understand consumer preferences, FDLIC may combine survey response information with information about customers who recently purchased products. FDLIC will only use the information collected for the conduct of its own business and will not disclose or sell visitors’ or customers’ personal information to non-affiliate companies without your consent.
Site Visitorship Data Collected on this Website
Funeral Basics uses aggregated site visitorship data to improve the content and services offered to its site visitors. Funeral Basics reports site visitorship data on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means no personal information is associated with it. This data can include: how many people visit our site; the pages they visit; how long they stay on our site; and the domain name of the site visitors are connecting from (aol.com for example).
Funeral Basics does not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your username, login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our priority.
When visitors submit information using one of our online forms, Funeral Basics uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology to protect the information they submit. This technology protects visitors from having their information intercepted by anyone other than Funeral Basics while it is being transmitted. Funeral Basics works hard to ensure that our systems are secure and that they meet industry standards. Where appropriate, we employ firewalls, encryption technology, user authentication systems (e.g., user names and passwords) and access control mechanisms to control access to systems and data. In the event we share information with affiliates, or service providers, we will use appropriate measures to protect the security of such information, including confidentiality agreements.
This website contains hyperlinks or ‘links’ to other sites, and other sites may ‘link’ to this site. Websites linking to and from this site may have different privacy practices from the ones described here for www.funeralbasics.org. Visitors to our site should read the privacy statements of other websites they visit. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
