This information supplements the Stone Racing Privacy Statement.
Information Gathering Tools
Stone Racing, LLC ("Stone Racing", ProRacing® "us", and "we") implements a number of industry standard information-gathering tools, such as cookies, localstorage, and web beacons, to collect information about your use and interaction with our websites ("Interaction Information"). As described more fully below, we and our partners use these tools to analyze trends, administer our websites, track users’ movements around our websites, serve targeted advertisements, and gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. This notice describes the types of Interaction Information collected our websites and how we may use it.
The headings below describe the different types of cookies used by Stone Racing on its websites and your options for managing your devices’ cookie settings:
Required cookies enable you to navigate Stone Racing’s websites and use its features, such as enabling single sign-on and Stone Racing’s “Your Account” functionality.
If you have chosen to identify yourself to Stone Racing, we may place on your browser cookies containing an encrypted, unique identifier, which allows us to identify you when you are logged into our website and to process your online transactions and requests.
Because required cookies are essential to operate Stone Racing’s websites, you cannot opt out of these cookies.
Functionality cookies enable our websites to remember information you have entered or selections you have made (such as your email or your country) and provide enhanced, more personal features.
Functionality cookies may also be used to improve how our websites function and perform, to enhance and customize your interactions with the Company, and to help us provide you with more relevant messages, including marketing communications. These cookies collect information about how visitors use our websites, including which pages visitors go to most often and if they receive error messages from certain pages.
Stone Racing may use its own technology or third parties to analyze trends, administer our websites, track users’ movements around our websites, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We also use these providers for re-targeting: we and our service providers gather the information about your activities on website and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.
Stone Racing and our third-party partners may also utilize HTML5 local storage or flash cookies for these purposes. Flash cookies and HTML5 local storage are different from browser cookies because of the amount of data, type of data, and means of storage of data. We also use flash cookies, to store your preferences or display content based upon what you view on our website to personalize your visit.

Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager
Stone Racing uses web beacons alone or with cookies to gather information about how our customers and visitors use our websites and interact with emails from us. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular website tied to the web beacon, and a description of a website tied to the web beacon. For example, Stone Racing may place web beacons in marketing emails so that we are notified when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of our websites. Web beacons help Stone Racing to operate and improve the content of our websites and email communications.
Log Files, IP Addresses, URLs and Other Data
Like most websites, we gather Interaction Information automatically to analyze cumulative trends and to administer our websites. This information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address (or the proxy server you use to access the web), device and application identification numbers, your location, your browser type, your internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. Due to internet communications standards, when you visit or use our websites, we automatically receive the URL of the website you came from and the website you go to when you leave our website. This information is used to analyze overall trends, to help us improve our websites, and to track and aggregate non-personal information. For example, Salesforce uses IP addresses to monitor the regions our customers and visitors are located in when they visit our websites.

All other data will be deleted immediately when you, as a customer, unsubscribe from our Products or other services.

Information for EU Residents:
The data controller is Stone Racing, LLC, 1955 Baring Blvd., Sparks, Nevada 89434, USA. Privacy-related questions can be directed to StoneRacingExhaust@gmail.com.
You are not legally required to provide Stone Racing with the Personal Data described in this Privacy Statement. Further, the contractual relationship that you might have entered into with us by purchasing our Products does not imply any obligation to provide your Personal Data. However, you might not be able to use our Service to the full extent if you do not provide us with certain data or object to the use of these data.
Our Legal Basis for Processing
When processing your Personal Data, we rely on the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), an EU-wide legal framework for the standardization of data protection. Stone Racing primarily processes data as a controller, for the purposes explained above under Sections 1 and 2 of this Privacy Statement. These purposes represent our legitimate interests for the purposes of Article 6 (1) f) GDPR. At the same time, some of the Personal Data we process is necessary for us to perform a contract with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you. For example, if you express your interest in purchasing one of our Products, such as by filling out a webform, we will process the Personal Data submitted to comply with your request. This may include sharing your Personal Data with one of our authorized resellers, who will then use your Personal Data to complete the purchase transaction. In addition, we are legally obliged to provide certain information to criminal prosecution or tax authorities in individual cases upon request. In these cases, the legal basis for the processing is either legal requirements (Article 6 (1) c) GDPR) or reasons of public interest (Article 6 (1) e) GDPR).
Transferring your Data outside the EU or the EEA
Stone Racing’s principal place of business is in USA, which is a " Third Country" under the GDPR. Third Countries are generally not considered to afford the same level of protection that you enjoy in the EU, but Stone Racing still provides an adequate level of protection for your Personal Data - decision 2002/2/EC of the EU Commission states that the United States is deemed to provide an adequate level of data protection regarding commercial organizations such as Stone Racing.
We have ensured that our service providers and affiliates have either certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and will process all Personal Data received from EU member states in reliance on the Privacy Shield Framework or that they have been subjected to strict contractual provisions in their contract with us to guarantee that an adequate level of data protection for your data is guaranteed.
We use your data for "Profiling". This means that we use your data to make tailored offers based on your previous behavior as well as to serve you personalized ads. However, we will never process and analyze your Personal Data in the context of Profiling in a way would lead to an automated decision that has a legal effect on you or significantly impairs you in a similar way.
Your rights regarding the processing of your Personal Data
As a natural person, you have certain rights as "Data Subject". You can assert the following rights against us under the GDPR:
Your right to information and access under Article 15 GDPR,
Your right to correction under Article 16 GDPR,
Your right to erasure under Article 17 GDPR,
Your right to restriction of processing under Article 18 GDPR, and
Your right to data transferability under Article 20 GDPR.
In addition, you have a right of objection to the competent data protection supervisory authority under Article 77 GDPR, but only with respect to the data processing we conduct on our own behalf, as a controller. In the event Stone Racing acts as a processor of your data for a third party, you must refer to the entity acting as controller to assert this right.
Information about your Right of Objection under Article 21 GDPR
Right of objection in individual cases
In addition to the rights already mentioned, you have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of Personal Data relating to you, which is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) e) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6 (1) f) GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Article 4 (4) GDPR. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your Personal Data unless we can prove compelling grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise, or defend legal claims. Please also note that, if we terminate the processing due to your objection, the Sites or Products may no longer be available to you or only to a limited extent.
The right to object to the processing of data for advertising purposes
You also have the right to object at any time to the processing of your Personal Data for the purpose of direct marketing, including any subscription to our newsletters or personalized ads; this also applies to Profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing. If you object, we will no longer process your Personal Data in the future.
The objections can be made form-free and should be addressed to: StoneRacingExhaust@gmail.com
