We only collect personal information that is necessary for our functions or activities and we do so only by lawful and fair means and in an unobtrusive way. HeavenAddress collects information (which may or may not be personal information) about you in the following ways:

  • When you register with or use HeavenAddress, we collect personal information such as your name, email address, telephone number, address, gender and any other personal or preference information that you voluntarily provide to HeavenAddress through the Websites or to a HeavenAddress services partner (which may include our funeral director partners). If you register or login to HeavenAddress via a social networking account, such as Facebook, the social networking site may provide your information to HeavenAddress.

  • When you visit our Websites, we collect your browser type and IP address. This information is gathered for all HeavenAddress visitors and is used to manage the Websites, track usage and improve HeavenAddress Websites and services. In addition, HeavenAddress stores certain information from your browser using cookies.

    Cookies are pieces of data stored on your computer that are sent from the websites that you view. HeavenAddress uses session Cookies, which terminate once you close your web browser, and also persistent Cookies that store your login details to make it easier for you to login the next time you visit HeavenAddress. You can remove or disable Cookies using the settings on your web browser, however, if you choose to do this you may not be able to take full advantage of the functions on the Websites.

  • When you post Registered User Content (as that term is defined in HeavenAddress's Terms of Use) on the Websites, you do so at your own risk. While HeavenAddress provides security options that allow you to limit access to your profile pages, we cannot and do not guarantee that such Registered User Content will not be viewed by unauthorised persons.
