Help Texts will not share or sell your personal data. We are asking you to share some personal information about you, and the person you've lost, and are grateful to you for trusting us to use this data only so that we can provide you with the very best support possible this year. Here are our privacy practices for Help Texts:
Information Collection, Use and Sharing
You are the owner of the personal, demographic information collected on this site. We only have access to information that you voluntarily give us via the subscription form or provide to us directly via phone/email. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to customize the support messages you receive this year. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via email@example.com.
- See what data we have about you, if any.
- Change/correct any data we have about you.
- Have us delete any data we have about you.
- Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
While we are taking all available steps to ensure security, it is important to remember that no system can be guaranteed 100% secure.
Keeping your Personal Information
All retained personal information will remain subject to the terms of this Privacy Notice. If you request that your information be removed from our database, it may not be possible to completely delete all your personal information immediately due to technological and legal constraints, but we will delete it in a timely manner.
Subscription & Payment Data
In order to receive customized support from Help Texts, our subscribers must complete the registration form. You are required to provide your name, the name of the deceased, and your mobile number. This information is used to send support content to your mobile phone. At your option, you may choose to provide additional demographic information such as your gender, the cause of death of the deceased, the date of death and more. This additional information helps us to tailor the support we provide, but is not required. You can (and should) provide only the additional demographic data you are comfortable providing.
To purchase a Help Texts subscription you must provide financial information (credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to process your subscription request. If we have trouble processing an order, we'll use this information to contact you.
We use "cookies" on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor's hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.
We share aggregated, anonymized demographic information and usage data with organizations who are providing bereavement support to their subscribers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We use credit card processing companies to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.
This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.
