Information Collection and Use
Stenograph, L.L.C. is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

In order to use this site or portions of this site, a user may need to first complete an online registration form. During registration, a user is required to give their contact information (such as name and e-mail address). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.
We request information from the user on our order form. Here, a user must provide contact information (such as name and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill customer orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to contact the user.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Who will the information be shared with, if anyone?
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
Stenograph, L.L.C. reserves the right to perform statistical analyses and profiling of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform third parties of such information.

Like most Web sites, this site uses "cookies" to allow you to move more quickly through the site. Cookies are small text files a Web site can use to recognize repeat users and facilitate their ongoing access to and use of the site.

We use this information only for purposes of planning and tracking, as well as assessing the technical function of our site. For instance, when you access a specific area of our site, the system will transfer a cookie to your browser so that when you return to this area of the site, you will not have to reenter your data to gain access to it.
