MakemyWill may collect a variety of visitor data such as IP addresses, browser settings, Internet Service Provider (ISP) information, referring/exit pages, operating systems, date/time stamps, and clickstream data (collectively “Visitor Data”). The MakemyWill internal servers and software automatically recognize Visitor Data. The Site may use Visitor Data to compile traffic data about the types of visitors who use the Site at specific intervals (collectively “Traffic Data”).
We may use Traffic Data to analyze Site traffic, but this information is not examined for Personally Identifiable Information (defined below). We may also use Traffic Data to diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, or display content according to your preferences. Visitor Data and Traffic Data may also be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
MakemyWill requires each customer to provide us with personal information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”) to access and use MakemyWill products and Online Services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured only when a visitor accesses Online Services, or speaks on the phone with a MakemyWill employee, and willingly discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with an Online Service, engages in transactions, contacts customer service, or participates in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, requests for suggestions, or other aspects of services offered by MakemyWill.
Personally Identifiable Information includes: (i) “Contact Data” (such as your name, address, P.O. Box number, phone number, and email address); (ii) “Financial Data” (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code or bank account information); (iii) “Demographic Data” (such as your address and sex); and (iv) other “Legal Data” (such as your, mortgage information, automobile information, marital information, trade secrets, inventions, and idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents).
We may collect the information of third-party individuals as necessary, such as to ask our customers to indicate beneficiaries of a will, record shareholders of a company, or register authorized contacts to access their MakemyWill account. MakemyWill uses this information for the sole purpose of administering its services for our customers, and does not use such information for any other reason.
Certain personal information may be required to be disclosed to a government department or a court of competent jurisdiction.

We may also disclose your personal information: as required by law, such as in response to a legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a legal request.
Contact Data and Traffic Data are used to gather general statistics about our customers and visitors. We may use Demographic Data to generate collective information about our users, but not in a way that identifies any user specifically. For example, we may inform third parties about the number of registered users and unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed.
