Sterling & Sterling, Inc. (“Sterling”) values individual privacy and we want to give our website visitors the opportunity to know what information we collect about them and how they can limit the use of personally-identifiable information beyond the purposes for which they first provided it. At all times, however, Sterling reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect Sterling’s rights or property, including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of Sterling or substantially all of its assets, or during emergencies when safety is at risk.
Whenever we change our policy, we will give reasonable notice by posting a notice on our home page.
Data We Collect and How We Use It
Personally Identifiable Information
We collect your email address if you communicate with us by email, as well as other information that you might supply voluntarily, such as survey information.
If you purchase a product or service at our site, we will also ask for your credit card number or other account number you wish to be charged. We do not give out your credit card or other account information to third parties unless you authorize us to do so or if it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including, but not limited to, delivering a product or service you order.
We may use this information to respond to an email or other inquiry or request, to help improve our website and our services, to customize your experience at our website, or to send updates or notices about our organization and the products we offer that we think may be of interest to you. We may also combine this information with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify visitors’ preferences or interests. We may provide information that identifies you to companies that assist us in these activities, such as helping us fulfill your request for a product, service or information.
Sterling’s website is intended for adults. Sterling does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If Sterling Analytics obtains knowledge that it has personally identifiable information about a child under 13 in retrievable form in its files, Sterling will delete that information from our existing files.
