At times, Barton will need personal information regarding a customer or a prospect. For example to process a memorial request, Barton may need to know a customer’s name, mailing address, e-mail address and credit card details. It is Barton’ intent to inform you before Barton collects personal information, such as user’s name and/or address on the Internet.  All client information, whether received by email or in written communication such as funeral arrangement forms is held in the strictest confidence. We specifically do not solicit information to market our services to family or friends.

Disclosure of the Information

Mergers and Acquisitions.

Circumstances may arise where for business reasons, Barton decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize its businesses in the United States or some other country. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal identifying information to prospective or actual purchasers, and/or receiving such information from sellers. It is Barton’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

Marketing Analysis by Third Parties.

Barton reserves the right to disclose to third parties personal information about customers for marketing analysis; however, any information disclosed will be in the form of aggregate data that does not describe or identify an individual customer.

Release to Third Parties.

Barton releases personal identifying information when Barton reasonably believes release is appropriate to comply with law, to enforce Barton agreements, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Barton customers. Barton may also release such information in an exchange of information with other companies and/or organizations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

Tracking of Visitor’s Information.

Barton’ Web site(s) are not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Our site logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff to provide better services to the public and may also be provided to others, but, again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

Use of Cookies.

Barton, or its third party vendors, collect non-identifiable and personal information through the use of various technologies, including ”cookies”. A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier that a Web site can transfer to customer’s hard drive through customer’s browser. The cookie is then stored on customer’s computer as an anonymous tag that identifies the customer’s computer, but not the customer. Cookies may be sent by Barton or its third party vendors. Customer can set its browser to notify customer before a cookie is received, giving an opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. Customer may also set its browser to turn off cookies; however, some Web sites may not then work properly.

Collection of Non-Identifiable Information.

Barton may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the Barton Web site(s) in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on Barton Web site(s); Web site and system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as ”clickstream data.” Barton or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics

No Liability for Acts of Third Parties.

Barton will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of customer personal information. However, transmissions protected by industry standard security technology and implemented by human beings cannot be made absolutely secure. Consequently, Barton shall not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of personal information due to no fault of Barton including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts of Barton staff and/or third parties.
