Privacy Policy:

Your privacy is important to The Stone Network. This statement discloses the information practices for The Stone Network websites, including what type of information may be gathered and tracked, how the information may be used, and with whom the information may be shared.


Document Outline: The Stone Network Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to The Stone Network. This statement discloses the information practices for The Stone Network websites, including what type of information is gathered and tracked, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

The Stone Network's mission is to build users' trust and confidence in the Internet by promoting the principles of disclosure and informed consent.

We have implemented these practices for the The Stone Network home page (http://stone-network.com/). We have instructed our webmasters to include information on these privacy practices wherever personal information is collected on a The Stone Network website.

To return to The Stone Network site, please use the "Home" link at the top of this page.

Personal Information.

In general, you can visit The Stone Network on the web without telling us who you are and without revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we or our partners may need information from you.

You may choose to give us personal information, such as your name and address or e-mail id that may be needed, for example, to correspond with you, to process an order or to provide you with a subscription. It is our intent to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you on the Internet.

We know that you are concerned about your privacy; so is The Stone Network. If you provide The Stone Network with information about yourself, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, or other personal data, we may add it to our records. From time to time you may receive information about our products, services, activities, or contacts for other business purposes, unless you request otherwise by selecting the appropriate button on the data collection page.

The Stone Network is a global organisation with legal entities operating components of our website worldwide. Because of the global scope of our web, we may transfer your personal information to countries of the world which provide various levels of legal protection. Please realise that when you give us personal information, The Stone Network will handle it in the manner we describe here. To learn more, you can read about The Stone Network's general Internet privacy practices. Our privacy practices are designed to provide a high level of protection for your personal data, all over the world.

If you tell us that you do not want us to use this information as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes.

Information Security & Quality. [TOP]

We intend to protect the quality and integrity of your personally identifiable information. We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures, such as using encryption for transmission of credit card numbers, to help us keep your information secure, accurate, current, and complete.

We will make a sincere effort to respond in a timely manner to your requests to correct inaccuracies in your personal information. To correct inaccuracies in your personal information please return the message containing the inaccuracies to the sender with details of the correction requested.

Cookies, Web Beacons & Other Technologies. [TOP]

We sometimes collect anonymous information from visits to our sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit and we also measure visitor activity on The Stone Network websites, but we do so in ways that keep the information anonymous. This anonymous information is sometimes known as clickstream data. The Stone Network or its analytic vendors may use this data to analyse trends and statistics and to help us provide better customer service.

Also, when we collect personal data from you in connection with a transaction we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information such as clickstream data. This anonymous information is used and analysed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. None of this information is reviewed at an individual level. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner, you can either disable your cookies or opt-out at the order or request page.

We collect the anonymous information we mentioned in the previous paragraphs through the use of various technologies, including one called "cookies". A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Some The Stone Network pages use cookies, sent by The Stone Network or its third party vendors, or other technologies to better serve you when you return to the site. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether to accept it. You can also set your browser to turn off cookies. If you do so, however, some areas of some sites may not function properly.

Some The Stone Network websites also use web beacon technologies to better tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These “web beacons” are placed on a number of pages across The Stone Network's websites. When a visitor accesses these pages, an anonymous notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by us or by our vendors. These web beacons work in conjunction with cookies. If you don’t want to associate your anonymous cookie information with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.

If you turn off cookies, web beacon technologies will still detect anonymous visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other anonymous cookie information and are disregarded.

For more information, please see "Cookie Usage".

Online & Internet-Based Advertising. [TOP]

The Stone Network has certain companies help us deliver our banner ads and other online communications. These companies may collect and use information about customers to help us better understand the offers, promotions, and types of advertising that are most appealing to our customers. The information they collect is aggregated so it is not identifiable to a specific individual. If, however, you would prefer that these companies not collect information from your experience, please visit the DoubleClick site at http://www.doubleclick.com/privacy/index.aspx and follow the “opt-out” instructions.

Personalised URL links. [TOP]

On occasion, The Stone Network presents a personalised URL (link) that brings the visitor to a personalised web page. Such a personal URL is readily identifiable and by clicking on that link and going to a personal web page you are agreeing to let The Stone Network collect information about your session visits. We use this information to help us provide you with information that matches your interests. If you do not wish information to be used in this way, simply do not click on such personalised URLs.

Childrens Data. [TOP]

While none of The Stone Network's websites are directed towards children, we are committed to comply with applicable laws and requirements, such as the United States’ Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

Privacy Technology. [TOP]

Technology will increasingly help you to have more control over your personal information. It will also help organisations to manage their privacy practices and policies. As an information technology provider, The Stone Network actively supports the development of privacy technologies to help achieve these goals, and to help create greater trust and confidence in the way personal information is handled. Products and services are available which can help give you privacy protection while navigating the web.

See http://www.w3.org/P3P/ for an overview of the Platform for Privacy Preferences (P3P) Project.

Please note that The Stone Network has not formally evaluated all of these tools.
