At MyWishesInfo.com, which includes MyLastWishes.org, we are committed to protecting your privacy and use technology that gives you a secure online experience. All technology is based on secure architecture and 256-bit encryption that involves strict parameters to ensure that your information is only viewed by yourself and those that you may authorize--if you choose the “Private” option. It is your responsibility as a member to ensure that authorized contact people have your password and understand what they can view and when. Most people choose a lower level of security so their critical information can be accessed in emergencies, when life-determining decisions must be made. To them, this value is more important than privacy.
