No. You will not be asked to provide an email address to complete or save your Will. DoYourOwnWill.com does not collect or sell email addresses.
- Will my personal information be saved or sold?
No. None of your information is saved, collected or sold on DoYourOwnWill.com. After completing a simple questionnaire asking for your name and address, Executor designation, and how you’d like to distribute your estate, the site automatically inputs your information into a standard Will document. You can save this document to your computer in editable text or PDF format. The document is not saved on the website, and any information you entered will be cleared/lost after closing the browser window.
- How does this site make money if the service is free and no information is collected or sold?
DoYourOwnWill.com collects revenue by placing relevant advertisements along the top and side of the web page and through affiliate relationships with other companies.
- Can I search for my relative's Will on this site?
No. Because no information is saved or collected on DoYourOwnWill.com, it is not possible to search for Wills previously completed on the site.
- Why should I write a Will?
Writing a Will is critically important for all adults regardless of wealth, marital status, or age. A Will allows you to: ensure that your possessions will be distributed as you wish; appoint and outline powers of an executor and/or trustee; appoint a guardian for minor children; specify funeral wishes; expedite the legal process; and reduce stress and heartache for loved ones.
