225 Media understands your concerns about privacy and we want to assure you that 225 Media is firmly committed to protecting your privacy. Therefore, we are providing this explanation of our online information practices regarding the type of infomation we collect about you, how we safeguard and use your infomation, and our infomation-sharing practices.

To ensure that we are meeting your privacy needs, you may submit your concerns regarding this Privacy Policy or our privacy practices through the Contact Us form. 225 Media will make every effort to respond to all reasonable inquiries in a timely manner.

It is important to note that, by submitting information manually or in electronic form to us and/or by using our Website, you are giving your consent that all information that you submit may be processed by 225 Media in the manner and for the purposes described in this Privcy Policy.
What type of information does 225 Media collect?
You are free to browse the Website without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, once you give us your personally identifiable information (as further described below), you are no longer anonymous to us. Personally identifiable information is individually identifiable information about you that could permit one to identify or contact you. At various places on the Website, we may request certain information, such as your name, e-mail address, billing address, and other personal information. You may choose to provide this personally identifiable information in order to access or use certain features or services of the Website, such as registering on the Website to make a purchase. You can always choose not to provide such information, but you may not be able to use a particular service or feature on the Website.
How does 225 Media use Personal Information?
We will not sell, exchange or divulge your personal information (including your e-mail address) to any third party without your consent, unless we believe that the release of this information is appropriate in order to comply with the law, or to enforce our Terms of Use, or to protect our rights, property or safety, our customers, or other third parties. However, when you purchase services through the website and enter payment information, this information may be transferred to the processing company for transaction authorization and authentication purposes.
We will use your personal information for the purpose of providing the services offered through 225 Media Websites. In addition, we may collect information about your historical activity with us and your use of the website. For example, we may record information on our servers from your browser, including your IP address, cookie information, and the pages you visit.
Occasionally, we may send you information about services and features available on our Website. Of course, you always have the option of opting out of our email communications.
What is a “cookie”?

A cookie is a small text file stored on a computer by a web site that assigns a numerical user ID and stores certain information about the user’s online browsing.  225 Media places a cookie on your computer when you begin the Memorial2U registration process.  We do this to help us recognize you as a prior user of the web site so that we may provide you with customized pages based on information in your account or profile.  The cookie file does not store your personal information.  If you prefer not to receive cookies from our web site, you can disable their use in your browser settings.  By doing so, however, you may reduce the functionality of the web pages you access and view.
As is true of most web sites, we automatically gather certain information about visits to our web site and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and click stream data.  This information is not connected to individual names or personal identities.  We aggregate this information and use it to analyze trends, to administer the site, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

How do you Access or modify your information?

We encourage customers to keep their account profiles up-to-date, so that we continue to have accurate information.  Personal information previously provided through the web site may be changed or modified by logging into your account and clicking on the “My Profile” link.  You will be provided with the option to edit your contact information, edit your profile information or change your password.

How does 225 Media secure your information?

When you provide us credit card information through our web site, your transmission of information is protected by secure socket layer (SSL) encryption.  We do not store your credit card information. When you send us e-mail over the Internet, the transmission is not protected from interception.  Once the transmission is received, we store it on our secure servers.  Only select, employees are authorized to access your information and to maintain the database that stores user contact information.  Please keep in mind that no security system is a guarantee against unauthorized intrusions.
Users are required to utilize a password and user ID when registering, updating their contact information, or accessing secure sections of the web site.  If a user cannot remember a password, the user can follow the re-setting procedure on the web site.

Are tribute postings “public” or “private”?

It is important to understand that website postings are accessible to the general public unless the memorial creator selects a privacy setting that restricts public access (available as an option only on Memorial2U). Please remember that any information disclosed on a non-restricted Service becomes public information and may be collected and used by others without our knowledge. You therefore should exercise caution when disclosing any personal information or Personally Identifiable Information in these forums.
 When you post a tribute or place a flower on the Website, your user ID or alias that you are posting under may be visible to other users, and you have the ability to post a message that may include personal information.

Notice of Changes to This Policy.

If 225 Media decides to change this Privacy Policy, we will post the updated Privacy Policy here so visitors and members are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we share it with third parties.  We will post the revised policy 30 days before it goes into effect.  If we revise this Privacy Policy, we will not use or share your information in a manner that is incompatible with the policy in effect when your information was collected without your consent.
