Privacy Policy

Overview: For all Stone Fort Group events and communities, our policy is the same. The information we maintain from you is for our internal use to help us serve you better by providing the most relevant news and bringing together our communities for the most cutting-edge events.

What information do we collect?

In order to request information from, or submit information to, Stone Fort Group or any of our communities, we may ask you to provide information about yourself or your company by completing and submitting a form, subscribing to communications or by registering for one of our events. On these forms, we may ask that you submit personal information, such as your name, company name, mailing address, phone number and email address. In order to tailor our messages to you and provide you only with the information you’d like to receive, we may also ask voluntary demographic information, if you’d like to receive event updates and/or newsletters and what communities you are interested in receiving these updates from.

Stone Fort Group collects your information solely for the purposes of:

  • Personalizing your website experience and to allow us to deliver the type of content and product offerings in which you are most interested.
  • Allowing us to provide better responses to your customer service questions and requests.
  • Learning about website visitors and customers and to tailor specific features, tools, promotions, and/or other notifications.
  • To send periodic emails, news and updates. The email address you provide when completing a form will only be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your request or event registrations that you have purchased.
  • To create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred non-personal Information, which we or our business partners may use to provide and improve our respective services.
  • When you register for our events, our registration system collects payment details (including credit card information) and information regarding the purchase specifically to record your status as paid for the event. We do not keep credit card details.

Stone Fort Group maintains the privacy of this information and does not pass on details submitted through this website to other organizations. We do not rent or sell our customer lists. If you are registered for an event, part of your registration includes permission for us to share your contact information on a limited basis with professional organizations – such as our event sponsors/exhibitors – to promote similar products and services related to your area of interest.  If you do not consent to share your personal information with third party organizations please email info@stonefortgroup.com.

Our company website is hosted on WordPress and registration through e-Touches and Looking Cube. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall.

How do we communicate?

We may contact you to notify you regarding your account, to troubleshoot problems with your account, to resolve a dispute, to collect fees or monies owed, to poll your opinions through surveys or questionnaires, to send updates about our company, or as otherwise necessary to contact you to enforce our User Agreement, applicable national laws, and any agreement we may have with you. For these purposes we may contact you via email, telephone, text messages, and postal mail. To opt out of communications or ask us to stop processing your data, you may contact us or click the “unsubscribe” link that is located in the footer of all of our emails.

Use of Cookies

Yes, we use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We use tools, such as Google Analytics, to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page. If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings.

Disclosure Regarding Digital Advertising

We have implemented Google Analytics features based on Display Advertising (Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting). Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings.

We, along with third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to the Stone Fort Group website.

We utilize pixels through social media platforms, such as LinkedIn and Facebook, to help us gather an understanding of how our ads are performing, as well.

Third Party Links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include links to other websites. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content or activities of these linked sites and you hereby irrevocably waive any claim against Stone Fort Group with respect to such websites.

We additionally use third parties to acquire data and we hold those parties to the same high standard.
