CenterStone reserves the right to use this information internally or distribute it to selected agents acting on CenterStone's behalf.
Users of System
CenterStone collects personal information such as email address, name, address and telephone numbers from Users of the System. In addition, we collect and maintain Your order history. Third parties offering or showing their goods and/or services through the System ("Supplier(s)") may choose to load orders placed by Users via other means into System for reporting, forecasting or other purposes. CenterStone may disseminate aggregate data related to activity processed through the System but will not share personally identifying data or details of a User's activity with third parties (other than with the Supplier with whom User is transacting), except as necessary to carry out our business or as required by law.
Website Use Information
Use of IP Addresses
When You browse the Site, Your computer's IP address is logged in our server log files. An IP address is a number automatically assigned to Your computer whenever You are online. CenterStone collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information and to audit use of the Site. Typically, we do not link these IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, however, we can and will use these IP addresses to identify a User when we believe it necessary to protect the Site or System, our services, our Users or our Suppliers.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our Users and prospective Users. Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify You about important changes to the Site or System.
