This statement details our current information gathering and sharing practices for Veterans Direct Inc. As a division of Veterans Direct Inc., any information you provide to the VeteranCaskets.com and MarineCaskets.com site is automatically provided to Veterans Direct Inc.
Information We Collect and How We Use It When you place an order with us, we will need to collect your name, e-mail address, shipping address, credit card number and credit card expiration date. This information allows us to process your order and contact you if necessary. All of your information is stored on a secured server.
If you choose to participate in a contest or a promotion, we may ask for your name, address, phone number and e-mail address in order to administer the contest and notify the winners. We may use this information to send you promotional messages.
When you provide us with reviews or survey responses, we may supply this information to third parties who are interested in your reviews or comments. The information you provide is used to provide you with a more personalized shopping experience, including future recommendations and promotions that may be of special interest to you.
Information about your activity on the site is automatically collected when you sign in. We use this information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience. We monitor our site traffic patterns and site usage to better understand our customers and markets and improve the layout and design of our site. We use the information to notify you of any site changes, new features and services and to keep you informed of any special deals and promotions offered by Veterans Direct Inc. and its affiliates. You may opt-out of receiving this information if you so choose.
To the extent that we use third party advertisers or contact lists to personalize your shopping experience, including future recommendations and promotions that may be of special interest to you, they may adhere to their own privacy customs and policies. Veterans Direct Inc. does not control the privacy policies of third parties and/or their opt out lists. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
In addition to the information you provide when you use any Veterans Direct Inc. web site, we use technology to collect anonymous, non-personally identifiable information about your use of the site. For example, we use "cookie" technology, described below, to track which pages on our site our visitors view and which web browsers our visitors use. We also use "action tags" to assist in delivering the cookie. These action tags allow us to compile statistics and other data about our customers on an aggregate basis, by embedding a random identifying number on each user's browser. Then we track where that number shows up on our site. We share non-personally identifiable aggregated data with third parties.
Our emails often contain hyperlinks to additional information on our site. We use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on our site subscribers choose to review.
When you place an order with us, we share your information with our vendors, suppliers, and distributors ONLY to the extent to fulfill your orders. We do not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable information with anyone outside of Veterans Direct Inc.
We retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include but may not be limited to advertising, fulfilling orders, delivering packages, scheduling and performing installation, administering customer loyalty programs, sending postal mail and email, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing services and customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but may not use it for other purposes.
We may provide your information, as required by law or legal process; to protect and defend the rights of Veterans Direct Inc., the Marine Caskets.com site or the users or incident to a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, and under circumstances we believe reasonably necessary to protect the personal safety of users of Veterans Direct Inc., this site or the public.
Links to External and/or Co-Branded Sites
Our site may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are not under our control. Veterans Direct Inc. is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. See our Terms of Service and Legal Notices. We do have co-branded sites with other companies. You should review those policies.
A cookie is a small piece of information that many Web sites use to help make shopping online easier. The information is stored on your computer's hard drive. It lets you shop our site, place items in your cart and return several days later without having to reenter the information. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies. Browsers usually provide the option to disable this feature.
Our site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. All information is stored on a secure server that is not accessible through the Internet.
We strive to maintain the reliability, accuracy, completeness and currency of personal data in our databases and to protect the privacy and security of our databases. Although we cannot guarantee against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration or destruction of data, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
Choosing a Personal Password
When you create an account, you need to select a personal password that you will remember. It should be at least 6 characters. To maximize your level of protection, you should choose a combination of both letters and numbers.
Secure and Standard Account Sign
In Some older browser versions and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you'll be unable to securely connect to our server. You may choose to connect to the secure server via our standard servers, but your password will not be encrypted. If you have already securely saved billing information to your account, you can still order securely using your saved information. If you submit new billing information via standard servers, it will not be encrypted.
Safe Shopping Policy
Because your credit card security is a high priority, we have taken numerous steps to ensure that your payment information is processed confidentially, accurately and securely. Veterans Direct Inc. uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), an encryption technology that protects your credit card information. SSL encrypts all ordering information (name, address, credit card number) so no one can read it as it travels over the Internet. In-store Web stations operate over a private, secure network and do not use SSL.
