What is personal information?
Personal information is any information about an identifiable person other than the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization. Personal information collected by Stinson may include your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, age and other information that may be required to administer promotions and provide you with other services through the Stinson Site and other marketing channels.
Why does the Stinson Site collect personal information from you?
We collect personal information from you only for the purposes we identify to you at or prior to the time we collect such personal information. We do not collect any personal information when you access, surf or view the content on the Stinson site.
For those few activities on our Site where the collection of personally identifiable information is necessary (for example, when you contact us with a question or when you participate in one of Stinson's online promotions), you will know because the purposes for which your personal information is to be used will be identified to you. For those activities, we may collect, for example, your name, street address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address and postal code. We will not collect more information than is necessary.
Does Stinson collect or use information collected from you with technology?
The Stinson Site collects some information about you using technology, so it may not be readily apparent to you that it is being collected. For instance, when you come to our Site, your IP address is collected so that we know how many visits we have had by separate individuals. An IP address is often associated with the place from which you enter the Internet like your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or your firm or company. This information is not personally identifiable. We also use a feature called "cookies" which identifies your browser to us each time you visit our Site. None of the information collected is personally identifiable. We may use and disclose this information to affiliates and other third parties to measure the use of our Site and to improve our Site.
How does Stinson use the personal information it has collected from you?
Providing personal information is up to you, our visitor. We collect personally identifiable information to enter you in contests and notify you of results, to e-mail you with updates and news, to respond to your questions or comments, to register you for certain features, and/or to send out brochures and other information on our products or our company. We may ask visitors providing e-mail addresses to let us know if they would like further information or updates from us or our Site; only those who request it will receive follow-up e-mail or other communications from us. In that case, we may also offer visitors an "opt-out" option at any time they wish to cease receiving e-mails or other information from us. We will only use such information for the purposes of (1) administering certain programs as identified to you at the time of collection, and (2) in a form where the information is no longer identifiable with you, for statistical and marketing analyses.
To whom will Stinson provide your personal information?
Personal information is used solely by us. We will not disclose such information, other than as follows:
(a) to third party service providers with whom Stinson has a contractual agreement, which includes appropriate privacy standards, for the purpose of (i) fulfilling promotional product requests and sending prizes to winners of contests run by Stinson and contests run by third parties on behalf of Stinson; (ii) performing functions such as data processing, database services or information technology support; (iii) providing insurance for Stinson product liability claims on behalf of Stinson; and (iv) marketing or providing information about any of Stinson's products; and
(b) to comply with any legal actions like a court order; to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use, Site or contest rules; or to protect the safety and security of guests and our Site. We will let you know at the time the information is collected if such third-party sharing is anticipated, will identify the types of businesses with whom the information may be shared, will describe the information we will share (like your mail or e-mail address) and will only share data if you agree. We will share personal data only with those who have agreed to follow policies that share our high standards of privacy.
