Your privacy is very important to us. This notice explains our online information collection practices and the choices available to you about the way your information is used at our website.


We do not collect personal information about you (your name, telephone, address, e-mail, etc.) other than the information which you voluntarily provide to us through this site in order to satisfy your requests such as to subscribe to a newsletter or request a quote. If you have emailed us with any inquiry (for example, about a company event or in relation to a job application), we will use your email address to respond to your query.

We may also send you further information about our services or keep you informed of legal updates through our periodic newsletters. You can tell us not to contact you with updates and information regarding our products and services either at the point such information is collected (by checking or un-checking (as directed) the relevant box) or, where you do not wish us to continue to use your information in this way, by following the unsubscribe instructions on any communications sent to you. You can also exercise this right at any time by contacting us using the contact details at the end of this privacy policy.

We do automatically collect certain non-personal information when you visit our website, such as the type of browser and operating system you are using, and the domain name of your internet service provider (such as Comcast, AT&T). We use such non-personal information to analyze site usage (aggregated information about which pages were visited by our users) in order to improve the design and content of our website.


Any personal information gathered by us may be shared, as appropriate, with any STEL offices, affiliates, agents, or contractors who assist us in providing the services we offer, such as, for example, fulfilling requests for information, receiving and sending communications, updating marketing lists, analyzing data, providing support services or in other tasks from time to time. Our agents and contractors will only use your information to the extent necessary to perform their functions.

We may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, court order, or at the request of a law enforcement agency or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights, property, or personal safety of STEL, its website, or its visitors. In the event that we undergo re-organization or are sold to a third party, you agree that any personal information we hold about you may be transferred to that re-organized entity or third party.


Like many other commercial websites, our site contains links to other sites whose information collection practices may be different than ours. Users should consult the other sites’ privacy notices, as we do not have any control over any information that may be submitted to or collected by such third parties.

Although we employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information we collect online, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. Specifically, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web, or that may be collected in transit by third parties, including any consultants that provide services to us.


A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the “cookies” file of the browser on your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember you when you return for another visit to the site. A cookie contains the name of the domain from which the cookie originated, how long the cookie will remain active, and a randomly generated unique number to track pages you have visited. Every time you visit our site, we send you a cookie in order to track traffic to our site. Cookies may be used to enable the personalization features of our site (you can recall recently-viewed pages, and have information that you have previously provided be filled in automatically instead of having to fill in registration questionnaires every time), and to compile anonymous aggregate data that allow us to determine how visitors use our site and help us improve our offerings on the website. We may use session cookies (temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site) and persistent cookies (remain in your browser for a longer period of time, depending on the “lifetime” of the cookie) on this website.

If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website, you have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of the STEL website if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website. You do not need to have cookies turned on, however, to use/navigate through many parts of our website, except access to certain of STEL’s web pages that require a login and password.


We reserve the right to amend this Policy or any part of it from time to time. If we make any substantial changes in the way we use your personal information, we will make that information available by posting a notice on this site or updating this Policy. Please review the Policy periodically for changes.


If you have any questions or concerns about this Policy or its implementation, please contact us at If at any time you decide that we should no longer retain your personal information, please let us know by e-mailing us at the above address. To address any such request, the Marketing team at STEL will act promptly, and as needed, notify the Privacy Council at
