THE STONHARD GROUP, a Division of Stoncor Group, Inc. (hereinafter, “THE STONHARD GROUP”) values its relationship with visitors and customers and makes every effort to safeguard any personal information collected, while also making product and service information available to our customers. This section describes the overall privacy practices of THE STONHARD GROUP. It does not apply to companies other than THE STONHARD GROUP nor to anyone not employed by THE STONHARD GROUP.
There are two types of information collected on the Site: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information (“personal information”) is information that identifies you as an individual, whether directly such as by your name, mailing address, or email address, or indirectly such as by your internet protocol (IP) address, telephone number, age range, etc. Personal information is obtained via site usage tracking or when you voluntarily provide the information to us, such as, for example, by filling in forms on the Site.
THE STONHARD GROUP uses personal information to answer your questions; provide products, services or information you request; to communicate with you; to provide marketing materials from THE STONHARD GROUP or others with whom we have a relationship with.
Once you choose to provide us with personal information, you can be assured it will be used only to support your relationship with THE STONHARD GROUP or as otherwise described herein.
For example, personal information you voluntarily provide may be collected and stored to permit you to receive THE STONHARD GROUP’s e-newsletters and/or e-mail, participate in online support or “Ask the Expert” services and for marketing and administrative purposes. It may also be used to fulfill your requests for orders, sample products or information from THE STONHARD GROUP from time to time, to request product support, ask a question, report a problem with the Sites, participate in promotions, sweepstakes or contests. Additionally, you cannot communicate with THE STONHARD GROUP through the “Contact” or customer support links on the Site or via e-mail without providing personal information. If you contact THE STONHARD GROUP or its service providers, a record of that session or correspondence will be maintained.
THE STONHARD GROUP takes appropriate measures in light of the nature of the personal information we collect and the risks associated with processing that personal information in order to keep it secure and to reduce the risk that your personal information may be accessed, altered, damaged or used without authorization. THE STONHARD GROUP may combine information collected about you with information obtained directly or through its affiliated companies, business partners or other companies.
If all or part of THE STONHARD GROUP or any of its affiliates are sold, merged, or otherwise transferred to another entity, your personal and non-personal information may be transferred as part of that transaction or process. THE STONHARD GROUP may also disclose your personal information: (i) to comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request; (ii) if THE STONHARD GROUP believes disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of THE STONHARD GROUP, our customers or others; or (iii) if THE STONHARD GROUP has reason to believe that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action to enforce any of THE STONHARD GROUP’s rights, including against you or a third party, for nonpayment, violation of any agreement with THE STONHARD GROUP, and to prevent injury to or interference with THE STONHARD GROUP’s rights or property, or the rights or property of other THE STONHARD GROUP users or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. THE STONHARD GROUP may disclose or access account information when THE STONHARD GROUP believes in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that THE STONHARD GROUP deems necessary to maintain, service and improve THE STONHARD GROUP products and services and to protect its rights or property. By accessing and using the Site, you agree that information you have provided may be disclosed as described above or as may be modified from time to time.
We are part of a multinational group of affiliated companies that has databases in different countries, some of which are operated by affiliates and some of which are operated by third parties on behalf of THE STONHARD GROUP or one of our affiliates. We may transfer your data to one or more such databases outside your country of domicile, potentially including countries which may not require an adequate level of protection for your personal information compared with that provided in your country. However, THE STONHARD GROUP is a party to standard contractual clauses in the form approved by the European Union Commission in an effort to ensure effective levels of data protection, in particular, relating to transfer of personal information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“non-personal information”) is information that is about you but does not identify you as an individual, either directly or indirectly, such as your browser type, the URL of the previous web site you visited, your internet connection, the equipment you use to access the Site, etc. THE STONHARD GROUP may indirectly or through third parties, automatically collect certain types of non-personal information from you when you are using the Site. We may also collect non-personal information that you voluntarily provide, such as information included in response to a questionnaire or survey.
While THE STONHARD GROUP uses commercially reasonable efforts to provide accurate information, the industries of which THE STONHARD GROUP is a part and the jurisdictions in which the company operates and the laws and regulations applicable to those industries and jurisdictions change frequently. Therefore information contained on the Site may not be current or accurate. Because many factors go into the decision-making process of purchasing a given product and everyone’s particular circumstances and needs may differ, the Licensed Content is provided for informational purposes only. THE STONHARD GROUP cannot ensure or guarantee and does not warrant that your product selection will be accurate, meet your particular needs or requirements or that the recommendations, regulations or other information provided is complete, accurate or current for your specific needs (see our disclaimer of warranties in Section 10 below). Each claim or statement about the effectiveness of THE STONHARD GROUP products and/or claims or statements comparing the effectiveness of THE STONHARD GROUP products to that of others is expressly limited to the country of applicability as referenced on the site and if no country is referred, the United States, unless otherwise stated on the Site. If a product or sample offered by THE STONHARD GROUP through the Site is not as described, your sole remedy is to return it in its original, unused form and receive either a replacement of the product you purchased or a refund of the price you actually paid. Product description and pricing is subject to correction and change. THE STONHARD GROUP may refuse or cancel product orders placed at an incorrect price, or based upon erroneous promotion terms, whether or not the order has been confirmed. Sales made through the Site, if any, are governed by THE STONHARD GROUP Standard Terms and Conditions of Sale and/or Invoice-Terms and Conditions.

You may not upload to, distribute or otherwise publish through the Site any material that is defamatory, vulgar, obscene, threatening, libelous, invasive of another’s privacy or publicity rights, hateful, racially or ethnically objectionable or which may constitute or encourage a criminal offense, violate any law or another’s rights or otherwise give rise to liability.

You may not upload commercial material to the Site, use the Site to solicit others, advertise or promote anything.
Any attempt to interfere with or disrupt the Site, its servers, networks, Software, equipment or database connected to the Site, whether via malicious code, files or other means, or attempts to disassemble, reverse engineer or decompile any Software, circumvent security features such as passwords, or take any action that compromises the privacy or security of the Site, users or other visitors is strictly prohibited.
