The following PRIVACY POLICY is subject to change at any time and at the sole discretion of the Site owner and operator.  Please visit the site regularly for updates.


INTRODUCTION

This is the privacy notice of “Cornerstone Strategies, LLC.”  In this document, “we”, “our”, “us” or “Company” refers to Cornerstone Strategies, LLC.

Our registered address is at 110 ½ N. Grand St, PO Box 104, Chariton, IA 50049, USA.


Cornerstone Strategies, LLC is committed to respecting the privacy rights of its customers, visitors, and other users of the Site and related subscription service (the “Service”). We created this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) to give you confidence as you visit and use the Site or otherwise subscribe to the Service, and to demonstrate our commitment to fair information practices and the protection of privacy.  Except as otherwise expressly provided, this Policy does not apply to any other websites that you may be able to access from the Site, each of which may have data collection and use practices and policies that differ materially from this Policy.


This is a notice to inform you of our policy about all information that we record about you.  It sets out the conditions under which we may process any information that we collect from you, or that you provide to us.  It covers information that could identify you (“personal information”) and information that could not.  In the context of the law and this notice, “process” means collect, store, transfer, use or otherwise act on information.


We regret that if there are one or more points below with which you are not happy, your only recourse is to leave the Site immediately.

  1. We take seriously the protection of your privacy and confidentiality.  We understand that all visitors to the Site are entitled to know that their personal data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not accidentally fall into the hands of a third party.
  2. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of all information you provide to us, and hope that you reciprocate.
  3. Our policy strives to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as laws applicable in the United States.  
  4. The law requires us to tell you about your rights and our obligations to you in regard to the processing and control of your personal data.  In addition to this policy, you can find out more at https://gdpr-info.eu/
  5. Except as set out below, we do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any information collected through our website.


INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE PRACTICES


What basic information do we collect?  In operating the Site or otherwise offering the Service, we may include registration, online surveys, and other online forms that ask users to provide their names, email addresses, and message. 


COOKIES AND DO NOT TRACK 

The Site does not use any automated means of data collection such as cookies (small text files that a website can send to a user’s browser for storage on the hard drive) or web beacons (small strings of code that deliver a graphic image on a Web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data). Some of our third party partners do; refer to our Third Party Partner statement for additional information.


Most browsers are set to accept cookies, but you can change your browser setting to block cookies. Although disabling cookies will not interfere with your ability to access the Site, you may need to accept cookies to use some of our third party partners’ services. You can also disable the ability of Web beacons to capture information by blocking cookies.


Because the Site does not use cookies or web beacons, the Site does not respond to Do Not Track signals issued by your browser. To learn more about your choices regarding online tracking, please visit these sites: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Browser/DoNotTrack/Default.html

CHILDREN’S PERSONAL INFORMATION

The online channels are designed for a general audience and are not directed to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under the age of 13 through the online channels. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will promptly delete the information from our records.

COMPLAINTS

If your complaint reasonably requires us to contact some other person, we may elect to give to that other person some of the information contained in your complaint. We do this as infrequently as possible, but it is a matter for our sole discretion as to whether we do give information, and if we do, what that information is.

We may also compile statistics showing information obtained from this source to assess the level of service we provide, but not in a way that could identify you or any other person.
