Collection of your Personal Information
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you are registering before entering a contest, ordering e-mail newsletters, joining a limited-access premium site, signing up for an event or training, or when purchasing STAG products. Personal information collected by us is often limited to e-mail address, language, country or location, but may include other information when needed to provide a service you requested.
For example: When making a purchase on this website, we will request personal information necessary for billing and/or shipping, such as: name, address, telephone number, and credit card data.
When you buy a new product, we require that you register an account on this website. This registration information is stored electronically and allows you to securely log into your account and manage past orders, as well as speed up the order process in the future.
We also collect certain information about your computer hardware and software. This information may include: your IP address, browser type, operating system, domain name, access times, and/or referring website addresses. This information is used for the operation of our services, to maintain quality of the services, and to provide general statistics regarding use of this website.
We also collect information about which pages our customers visit within this website. This site visitation data is identified only by a unique IP number, and it is never linked with your personal information.
Use of your Personal Information
We use your personal information for the following purposes:
1. To ensure our website is relevant to your needs.
2. To deliver services, such as emails or promotional content that you request.
3. To alert you to product updates, special offers, updated information, and other new services from us, if you so request.
4. To allow you access to limited-entry areas of our website as appropriate.
We will merge site-visitation data with anonymous demographic information for research purposes, and we may use this information in aggregate to provide more relevant content. In some limited-entry sections of this website, with your approval, we will combine site-visitation data with your personal information in order to provide you with personalized content. We may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including packaging, mailing and delivering purchases, answering customer questions about products or services, sending postal mail, and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies with the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Control of your Personal Information
When you register on this website, or otherwise provide us with your personal information, we will not share that information with any third party without your permission, other than for the limited exceptions already listed. It will only be used for the purposes stated above.
We may send out periodic e-mails informing you of products or services you requested. Depending on the nature of the email, you may or may not be able to choose to unsubscribe from these mailings, as they are considered an essential part of the service you have chosen.
Security of your Personal Information
We are committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer servers with limited access, that are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit sensitive information (such as a credit card number) over the internet, we protect it through the use of encryption, including 256-bit encrypted Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
