Our Website and Information Collected Online
Special Note to Non-U.S. Visitors
WHAT TYPES OF INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT FROM YOU?
Personal Information is only collected with your knowledge (i.e., if you voluntarily provide it to us through the “Contact Us” function or other means available on this website) and will usually take the form of a request by you for information regarding our services.
We do not knowingly collect Personal Information on our website directly from children under the age of 13 and will destroy such information if we become aware that a child has disclosed such information to us without proper parental consent.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
What happens if you refuse to provide your personal information?
If you choose not to submit any personal information, you may not be able to participate in certain activities and personalized features on our websites and may limit the services we can provide you.
A cookie is a small text file that may be placed in your browser by websites you visit to improve the use and functionality of the website. There are two types of cookies:
– Session cookies – temporary cookie files that are erased automatically when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognize you and a new session cookie will be generated, which will store your browsing information and will be active until you leave the site and close your browser.
– Persistent cookies – these files stay in one of your browser’s subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie’s file.
This website employs session cookies only. As a result, your web browsing activities are not collected nor tracked by us once you leave this website.
We may keep track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to (among other things): (i) troubleshoot technical concerns, (ii) maintain website safety and security, and (iii) better understand how our website is utilized. An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet.
We (or a vendor on our behalf) may collect information in the form of logs – files that record website activity and gather statistics about web users’ browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help us gather (among other things) (i) a user’s browser type and operating system, (ii) information about a user’s session (such as the URL they came from, the date and time they visited our website, and which pages they’ve viewed on our site and for how long), and, (iii) other similar navigational or click-stream data. We also use information captured in log files for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve and customize the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only, and are not associated with any particular visitor.
HOW DO WE SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT YOU?
The information that you disclose on this website is collected by us or by a vendor acting on our behalf to maintain the website; and is used in accordance with the practices set forth above. The following provides more specific information about how and to whom we may disclose your information. We do not share Personal Information with other entities for commercial purposes, nor do we partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.
Agents and Contractors
We may use outside companies, agents, or contractors (“vendors”) to provide support for the internal operations of this website and to process payments. In the course of doing so, these vendors may come into contact with your personal information. However, we only give them access to (or allow them to collect on our behalf) the information they need in order to perform the specific tasks they’ve been retained to do. They have also agreed to protect the confidentiality and security of this information.
We may also use analytic tools which require the transmission and/or storage of information about you and your activities on services and devices not controlled by Forest Lawn. For example, use of Google Analytics, a web analytic service offered by Google Inc. (“Google”), requires that certain information about your activities be transmitted to and stored on Google servers. As directed by Forest Lawn, Google will use this information in order to evaluate usage of our services, to make reports on website activities and/or to other such services as we may request. Any information about you collected by Google Analytics (or similar third party tools) will not be matched up with other data of Google (or the applicable third party).
Legal and Business Transfers
We may also disclose personally identifiable information if we are required to do so by law or if, in our good faith judgment, such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal processes, to respond to any claims, or to protect the safety or rights of Forest Lawn, its partners, or the public.
