Privacy Policy

Your privacy is extremely important to us. At FuneralHelper we have a couple of fundamental principles:

  • We will never ask you for personal information unless we really do need it.
  • We will never share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law or to protect our rights.
  • In our commenting, forum and other interactive software we try to make it as simple as possible for you to control every aspect of your interaction.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

It is FuneralHelper's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

FuneralHelper is also associated with, solely through the use of its commenting system, a company called Automattic (IntenseDebate).

Automattic adheres to the same privacy policy in respect of their commenting software IntenseDebate, as Funeral Helper.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, FuneralHelper collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. FuneralHelper's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how FuneralHelper's visitors use its website.
FuneralHelper and Automattic also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. FuneralHelper and Automattic does not use such information to identify its visitors however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to FuneralHelper's website choose to interact with FuneralHelper in ways that require FuneralHelper and/or Automattic to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FuneralHelper and Automattic gathers depends on the nature of the interaction, for example, we ask visitors who sign up for an IntenseDebate account or those that wish to access FuneralHelper's forum to provide a username and email address. FuneralHelper and Automattic collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor's interaction with FuneralHelper or Automattic. FuneralHelper and Automattic do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics - Automattic

Automattic may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors who interact with IntenseDebate. For instance, Automattic may monitor the most popular comments on FuneralHelper or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam. Automattic may display this information publicly or provide it to others.

FuneralHelper does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

FuneralHelper will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. FuneralHelper will disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when FuneralHelper believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FuneralHelper, third parties or the public at large. FuneralHelper takes all measures reasonably practicable to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
