Notice to California Residents

California residents have the privacy rights listed below with certain exceptions. The rights granted under the California Consumer Privacy Act and Shine the Light are not the same. To exercise your rights, you will need to follow the directions specific to each law.

California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”)

Please note that the CCPA provides certain exceptions with respect to the personal information we collect in connection with providing products or services to, or receiving products or services from, other businesses. Similarly, it does not apply to information we collect in the context of a person’s role as a job applicant, employee or contractor of Batesville. With respect to the personal information collected in connection with the above individuals or circumstances, you may not have any or all of the privacy rights listed below.

Collection, Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information in the Past 12 Months

The CCPA requires that we make certain disclosures about our general collection, use and disclosure of California consumer personal information over the past 12 months. Accordingly, in the past 12 months:

You have the right to request to know more specific disclosures about your personal information as detailed under “Request to Know” below.

California Privacy Rights

You have the following privacy rights under the CCPA:

If you would like to make a Request to Know or Request to Delete or are an authorized agent of a California consumer who would like to make such a request, contact us at 1-800-622-8373 or complete our “California Privacy Rights Request Form” available here.

We will take steps to verify your identity before processing your request to know or request to delete. We will not fulfill your request unless you have provided sufficient information for us to reasonably verify that you are the individual about whom we collected personal information. If you have an account with us, we will use our existing account authentication practices to verify your identity. If you do not have an account with us, we will not require you to create an account with us but we may request additional information about you so that we can verify your identity. We will only use the personal information you provide to verify your identity and to process your request, unless you initially provided the information for another purpose.

You may use an authorized agent to submit a request to know or a request to delete. When we verify your agent’s request, we may verify both your and your agent’s identity and request a signed document from you that authorizes your agent to make the request on your behalf. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. To protect your personal information, we reserve the right to deny a request from an agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.

Shine the Light

California residents may also request information from us once per calendar year about any personal information shared with third parties for the third party’s own direct marketing purposes, including the categories of information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we have shared such information. To request this information, please contact us at [email protected] or by postal mail sent to Batesville Casket Company, Attn: General Counsel, One Batesville Blvd., Batesville, IN 47006. Your inquiry must specify “Shine the Light Request” in the subject line of the email or the first line of the letter, and include your name, street address, city, state and ZIP code.

Changes to Our Policy

We may make changes to this Policy at any time, including as we implement new technology and introduce new services or otherwise change our privacy practices, or in response to changes in applicable laws or regulations. When we make changes to this Policy, we will revise the “Effective Date” at the bottom of this Policy. If the changes are material, we will endeavor to notify you in advance of such changes taking place. If you object to any modification, your sole recourse is to notify us that you do not agree and stop using the Site, including Batesville Connect, and providing us with your personal information.
