Personal Information You Provide Us
We allow users to voluntarily sign up for email news and updates on our Site using a third-party email marketing service provider (Constant Contact). By subscribing to our news and updates lists, you automatically consent to Stone’s use and storage of information, including your email address, first and last name, phone number, and company name, for marketing our services, sharing industry updates, and communicating with potential clients and current contacts. Your email address might also be added to this list if you are a current or previous client or you provided us your business card at a conference or event. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by contacting us directly or following the unsubscribe link in the footer of these emails.
We also collect information such as first name, last name, and email address when users fill out the contact form on our Site. We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner.
Finally, we collect information from you when you apply for a job using a third-party service provider, including your name, email address, phone number, and resume. If you intend to provide us with information of a prior supervisor, reference, or other third party, it is your responsibility to obtain such third party's consent to provide this information to us.
Tracking and Cookies Data
In some of our e-mail communications, we use “click-through URLs” linked to content on our Site. When users click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our Site. We track this click-through data for various purposes, including to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the e-mail messages.

We may also share your information with third-party business partners with which we offer co-branded services to engage in joint marketing activities, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, and for other legitimate business purposes.
