  • How To Be Sure TheUrnStore Purchases Are Secure
    There are two ways to make sure you’re browsing secure pages. Both Internet Explorer® and Netscape Navigator® indicate secure modes with a symbol – the image of a closed padlock.

    You’ll know the information is protected if the closed-lock symbol pops into view in the lower right- or left-hand corner of your screen while you are checking out. You can also verify secure pages by checking the address, or URL, listed on the location bar. If you spot an "s" after the "http" at the beginning of the address, you know that you are browsing in a secure environment. Back to Top

    Your Liability For Unauthorized Charges
    In the unlikely event you feel your credit card information fell into the wrong hands, federal law limits your liability. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act of 1975, you can dispute the charges on your account with your credit card company – and temporarily withhold payment while they investigate the situation. Even if your creditor disagrees that unauthorized purchases were made, you’re generally only liable for the first $50 in fraudulent charges. We are so confident of our secured ordering process that TheUrnStore will take care of any fraudulent charges up to that first $50 made through us to your account.

  • TSA Air Travel Regulation We understand how painful losing a loved one is, and we respect anyone traveling with crematory remains. Passengers are allowed to carry a crematory container as part of their carry-on luggage, but the container must pass through the X-ray machine. If the container is made of a material that generates an opaque image and prevents the Transportation Security Officer from clearly being able to see what is inside, then the container cannot be allowed through the security checkpoint. Out of respect to the deceased and their family and friends, under no circumstances will an officer open the container even if the passenger requests this be done. Documentation from the funeral home is not sufficient to carry a crematory container through security and onto a plane without screening. You may transport the urn as checked baggage provided that it is successfully screened. We will screen the urn for explosive materials/devices using a variety of techniques; if cleared, it will be permitted as checked baggage only. Some airlines do not allow cremated remains as checked baggage so please check with your air carrier before attempting to transport a crematory container in checked baggage. Crematory containers are made from many different types of materials, all with varying thickness. At present, we cannot state for certain whether your particular crematory container can successfully pass through an X-ray machine. However, we suggest that you purchase a temporary or permanent crematory container made of a lighter weight material such as wood or plastic that can be successfully X-rayed. We will continue to work with funeral home associations to provide additional guidance in the future. Updated information can be found at www.tsa.gov.
