Effective: January 1, 2020

This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use and handle your personal information when you use our websites, software, and services (“Services”). By using our Services and submitting information you agree that we may use, collect and handle your information according to the terms of this Policy.

Information collected and how it is used

We automatically collect information when you download and interact with our Services including your device’s IP address, and statistics about how you use our Services.

We collect information that you submit when using our Services including, but not limited to, information about yourself such as your name, email or postal address, social media accounts, date of birth; information about the decedent such as their name, date of birth, date of death, social security number, title of the estate and taxpayer identification number for the estate; or payment card information (which is collected by a third party service provider) if you make a purchase (name, billing and shipping address, card information, email and telephone number). We will also collect any photo or media you submit to be used to track or identify estate assets as well as information about estate assets. We may also receive information about you, your digital identity, or your contacts from your social media account depending on how you have set your preferences on such account. We may collect information such as time of day or dates to help the user keep track of important phases such as statute of limitations, or geographic location so that the user can identify geographic specific content.

We use the collected information to personalize and enhance the customer experience, offer automated and individualized content, to generate notifications and reminders to the user, and to generate an accurate report that you can share externally to an attorney, professional, family, or government entity. We also use the information for our legitimate business needs such as to improve our Services, grow our business and to offer our own, our affiliates’ or third-party products or services that we think you may find of interest. We use your contact information to respond to your inquiries or to provide information on products or services to you.

These cookies are generally erased when you close your browser window. Further general information about cookies and how they work is available at www.allaboutcookies.org.

We may allow selected third parties to place cookies through our Services to provide us with better insights into the use of Services or user demographics or to provide relevant advertising to you. These third parties may collect information about a consumer’s online activities over time and across different websites when he or she uses our website.

We deploy automated technologies to detect abusive behavior and content that may harm our Services, you or other users.

We use reasonable technical, administrative and physical measures to protect information contained in our system against misuse, loss or alteration.
