This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how the Northern Virginia Burial & Cremation Society, INC. by Turch (“Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”) collects, uses, shares and protects any information that you provide to us when you use our website (“Website”). We are committed to protecting your privacy and we will only use the information that we collect about you lawfully in accordance with applicable data protection and privacy laws.

When you visit our Website, we may collect two types of information about you:

1. Personal Information. This includes your name, email address, physical address, phone number, and payment information. We only collect this information when you provide it to us when you “Become a Member,” place an order, sign up for our newsletter, fill out a survey or fill out online forms.

2. Non-Personal Information. This includes information about how you use our Website, such as the type of browser you are using, the pages you are viewing, and the date and time of your visit. We collect this information through the use of cookies and other tracking technologies.

We will use your information to process your orders and provide you with the services you request. We may also use your information to send you promotional materials about our products and services, as well as to contact you about our Website or other matters.

We take all legally required measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. This includes use of encryption via a “secure certificate” on our website.

A secure certificate is a type of digital certificate that is used to establish a secure connection between a website and a customer’s web browser. It encrypts the data sent between the two parties, making it unreadable to anyone who intercepts it. This helps protect the customer’s information from being stolen or misused. The certificate also authenticates the website, verifying that the website is legitimate and not a fake or malicious site.

We may update this Privacy Policy from time to time in order to reflect changes in our practices and services.
