3. Cookies and Similar Technologies
This information is also used to improve the Service and enhance your experience. For example, we may use the information to provide you with services that are easy to use, enable you to move around the Service and use its features, such as accessing secure areas, and store information or preferences so that we can respond faster. Cookies are not used to retrieve Personal Identifiable Information from your computer or device, or to retrieve other information from your computer or device for purposes that are unrelated to the Service or your interaction with the Service. We reserve the right to disclose or utilize any of this information in aggregate form, for any purpose permitted by law, in our sole judgment. Third party advertisers that serve ads on the Service may also use their own cookies.
We may also use and place cookies on your device from our third party service providers in connection with the website, such as an analytics provider that helps us manage and analyse website usage. For example, we use Google Analytics to understand how visitors interact with our Service. The type of information Google collects include pages visited, videos viewed, etc. This information helps us learn things like what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which of our products most interest our customers, and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. For more information learn how Google uses data when you visit their partners’ sites or apps. You can opt out of Google Analytics on most browsers through the mechanisms made available by Google.

4. Interest Based Advertising
Advertisements for our products and Service may appear on third party websites around the Internet. Some websites and services deliver these advertisements based upon data that has been previously collected about your past behaviour online.
We do not control such third party websites or services on which these advertisements appear. Further, we do not control how they collect and use data about your online activities. However, you may opt-out of being tracked online by certain companies by visiting http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp If you opt-out, you will still receive advertisements, but they will not be delivered to you based upon your behavioural data possessed by the companies from whom you have opted-out. This process relies upon an opt-out cookie, so if you delete your cookies or use a different computer, you will have to repeat this process.
As you use the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each website you visit. This information, which is sometimes referred to as “clickstream data,” can be collected and stored by a website’s server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use and the address of the website from which you linked to the Service. We may collect and/or use clickstream data to anonymously determine how much time visitors spend on each page of the Service, how visitors navigate throughout the Service and how the Service may be better tailored to meet the needs of visitors. This information will be used to improve the Service. Any collection or use of clickstream data will be anonymous, and will not intentionally contain any Personal Identifiable Information.
We have undertaken and will undertake commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized Internet access to user data retained in our servers. To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we adhere to industry standard practices and procedures to help safeguard and secure the information we collect. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information provided online, and you assume this risk by using the Service. We may aggregate Personally Identifiable Information and retain it for analytical purposes. We may retain your Personally Identifiable Information, if provided by you through the Service, for as long as your inquiry and/or account is active (as determined by us) and for a reasonable time thereafter, or if applicable, for as long as you remain on our marketing list. We also may retain your Personally Identifiable Information for a longer period of time as needed to provide you services or as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce our agreements. Even if we delete some or all of your Personally Identifiable Information, we may continue to retain and use aggregate, anonymous data previously collected and/or anonymize and aggregate your Personally Identifiable Information. To the fullest extent permitted by law, please note that we will not be liable for disclosures of your data due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties, including third party host providers.
7. Keeper & Legacy Contact Information
Farvel invites you to assign keeper/s that you trust to help create, manage, upload and share your Farvel information whilst you are alive. This keeper can also assist you manage and share your data after you pass away. You can provide different levels of access to different keepers. You provide their email and then assign their access rights. You can edit and remove keepers. You will also be asked to assign one of your keepers as your legacy contact by selecting the legacy contact option. This person will assume primary responsibility of your Farvel account in the event of your death. In the case where a Farvel account holder /user tries to assign a keeper who themselves has an existing Farvel account, a different email account (different to their existing account email) must be used to successfully add them as a keeper onto your account. If a keeper already has an account and they try and become a user, then the same principle applies.
