Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve the Services and your experience, see which areas and features of the Services are popular, and count visits. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies. Please note that if you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of the Services.

4. Analytics Services Provided by Others.
5. Interest-Based Advertising.
We may use tools such as Facebook’s Custom Audience program that enables us to display personalized ads to our customers as well as consumers with characteristics similar to those of our existing customers. To identify our existing customers to Facebook and determine relevant characteristics of our existing customer base, we may process your email address and phone number through a “hashing” application that converts this information to a string of alphanumeric data that is then sent to Facebook to enable Facebook to identify you (Custom Audiences) and identify other Facebook users with similar profile characteristics (Lookalike Audiences).
You may opt-out of future participation in our Facebook Custom Audience program by sending an email, from the email address you are opting out of, to email@example.com. For your opt-out to be effective, you must: (i) place the following text in the subject line of the email – “Opting Out of Facebook Website Custom Audience Ads”, and (ii) in the body of the email, include your name and email address. We will remove your name and email address from all of our future Facebook Custom Audience datasets. In addition, you can use the Facebook advertiser preferences and settings available through Facebook’s account and privacy management features to hide any future ads from Company. For more information about data processing by Facebook, please visit https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
6. How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals.
Some web browsers have “Do Not Track” or similar features that allow you to tell each website you visit that you do not want your activities on that website tracked. At present, the Services do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals and consequently, the Services will continue to collect information about you even if your browser’s “Do Not Track” feature is activated.
Mather LifeWays takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to or from us over the Internet.
8. Links to Third-Party Websites.
We may offer you the opportunity to access third-party content, services, events or products by linking to a third-party’s website. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that third-party’s website. We do not exercise control over third-party websites and are not responsible for the privacy practices of such third parties. We recommend that you check the privacy policies of third-party websites before providing your information to them. The fact that we may link to a third-party website or present a banner ad or other type of advertisement from a third party is not an endorsement, authorization, or representation of any affiliation by us with that third party, nor is it an endorsement of their privacy or information security policies or practices.
9. Notice to International Users
The Services are based in the United States and are subject to U.S. law, and are intended for users only in the U.S. We may store information on servers and equipment in other countries depending on a variety of factors, including the locations of our service providers.
