Personal Information

We do not automatically collect personal information, such as name, address, phone number, email address and other personally identifiable information, from our visitors. Users and members may voluntarily provide personally identifiable information by filling out registration forms and subscribing to newsletters and email notices, or otherwise agreeing to submitting such information. Cornerstone will only collect and use such personal information solely for the purpose(s) disclosed by Cornerstone at the time of collection and only after the visitor has voluntarily agreed to such collection and use, by checking “I Agree” on the online form. Cornerstone sometimes uses email addresses that have been voluntarily provided by users to our websites to respond to those users. All emails from Cornerstone to its users include instructions on how to discontinue receipt of emails, newsletters and other communication from Cornerstone. Email addresses from users and members who wish to discontinue receipt of Cornerstone’s emails will be removed from Cornerstone’s distribution list and data bases. Personal information that may identify a user and has been collected with the user’s consent by Cornerstone is not disclosed in any identifiable form to any other party outside the company except for the fulfillment of the specific purpose identified to the user at the time of collection. However Cornerstone may disclose such information in anonymous, aggregated and non-personally identifiable form to other parties for marketing, advertising or other purposes and to better understand user’s use of the Website. At any time, a user may send an email to Cornerstone.com to request that personal information be changed, removed or updated in Cornerstone’s databases. Users should exercise caution when they disclose personally identifiable information on this website or on any other website. Although Cornerstone is committed to protecting the personal information provided to it by its users in compliance with this Privacy Policy, it cannot guarantee the security of information, whether personal or otherwise, that users disclose online to publicly accessible web pages.
