About ST Media Group International and Hospitality Media Group LLC

ST Media Group International, known as STMG, and Hospitality Media Group, LLC, known as HMG, are the owners and providers of business-to-business content and services in the United States. Through content and services—such as magazines, newsletters, conferences, trade fairs, websites—we connect buyers and sellers in the visual communications, packaging design, and hospitality design markets.

Information Collection and Use

We collect and control personally identifiable information that you choose to provide to us when you register for a trade fair or conference, subscribe to a magazine or newsletter, participate in a contest or research surveys. During these processes we may request certain contact information and demographic information about you or your company such as your name, postal address, email address, primary business, number of employees, type of work, and job function. If you choose to purchase a magazine subscription or register for a conference or trade fair, you may also be asked to provide your credit card information.

This is done to help us provide our customers with the best service and valuable information regarding relevant products and services from STMG, HMG, and appropriate, relevant, and trusted third parties.

We may store the personal details we hold about you for as long as needed, which may be indefinitely. If you are located outside of the United States and voluntarily submit personally identifiable information to us, you hereby consent to the use of such information as provided in this privacy policy and to the transfer of that information to and storage and processing of that information in the United States.

Service Providers

We employ data processors and third party companies in the United States to provide our services (e.g., payment processing, data collection, data storage and processing, analysis, research, auditing, marketing). These third parties may have limited access to your personal information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated to STMG and HMG not to disclose or use your personal information for other purposes.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Data may be used to update and improve our publications and other products; as well as to inform you of important industry news, events, services, and/or products. Occasionally, we may release the data that you provide to trusted partners, such as trade fair exhibitors, that wish to market products/services that may be of interest to you.

We have procedures in place to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, data security, and correct use of the information we collect online. We will not sell, share, or rent any financial information collected from you, except as necessary to fulfill your order.

The views expressed in any STMG or HMG communication channel (example: website, magazine, blog, bulletin board, enewsletter, social media), are those of the individual author, are not to be attributed to STMG or HMG, or of any person or organization affiliated with or otherwise doing business with STMG or HMG.

Email Opt-out Features

You will have opportunities to opt-out of receiving information from third parties not affiliated with STMG or HMG. Any email communication that is sent to you will provide the opportunity to opt-out of future communications of the same type. Occasionally, information provided by you (including postal address, telephone/mobile, e-mail address and/or title or company name) will be used to send offers from STMG or HMG publications, products, or services relevant to your industry. Your information will also be used to send renewal requests from STMG publications and products to which you currently subscribe.
