Types of Information Storage Post Collects About You
Storage Post collects information that you provide to us or that we learn about you from the use of our web site. We receive and store information you enter on www.storagepost.com. For example, you may provide information to us when you make a reservation for our storage services, enter into a lease/rental agreement with us, use our site to "move in" to your leased space with us, use automatic bill pay or go online to make a payment on your account, make a customer service request or inquiry, or apply for a job with us. As a result of those actions, you might supply us with such information as your name, address, phone number, email address, payment card information, service or product preferences, and your employment history. We also automatically receive and store certain types of information whenever you visit our site. We may also receive information about you from other sources, such as in communicating with you regarding special offers that we think will be of interest to you. We also may add that information to the information we collected about you.
How We Use Information About You
We use information we have collected about you to provide you with our storage and other services, as well as to respond to customer inquiries and complaints, to maintain and collect payment on your account with us, to enforce your agreements with us, and to provide you with marketing and promotional information about products and services we believe are of interest to you. We do not sell your personal information to third parties for any reason. We do not disclose your personal information to unaffiliated third parties that may want to offer you their own products and services unless you have requested or authorized us to do so. We may share your personal information with third parties or affiliates where it is necessary for us to provide you with the services you have requested, collect payment, or do something that you have asked us to do.
We may share your personal information to third parties or affiliates with whom we have contracted to perform services on our behalf. Companies that act on our behalf are contractually obligated to keep the personal information we provide to them confidential and to use the personal information we share only to provide the services we ask them to perform.
Storage Post collects and uses personal information from you in several other ways:
Web Site Usage. Storage Post, or Storage Post authorized service providers, may observe your activities, preferences, and transactional data (such as your IP address, browser type and operating system) relating to your use of our web site. While we may collect or log this information, we generally do not identify you or match this information with your other personal information. We may use this collected or logged information in order to provide better service, facilitate our customers' use of the web site, track usage of the web site, and to address security hazards. Storage Post, or one of our authorized service providers, also may use this information to track aggregate traffic patterns throughout our web site. We may use aggregated, statistical information to describe our customer audience, products and services, and to develop partnerships with third parties to offer products and services we believe would interest our customers.
Transactions. You may be asked to share personal information in order to complete a transaction, and when you use our web site. This information is used, for example, to affect your transactions, create and share aggregate reports about these transactions, and perform financial fraud screening services for transactions between you and Storage Post and/or our authorized service providers. For certain transactions, such as online bill payment, we will assist you in creating a user ID and password to protect your account information with us.
Recruitment and Job Applications. You may provide us with personal information, such as that contained on a résumé or curriculum vitae, in connection with a job application or inquiry. We may use this information throughout Storage Post offices in the United States for the purpose of employment consideration or your inquiry. We may keep your information on file for future consideration.
Our Security Practices
We employ reasonable security practices to attempt to restrict access to customers' personal information to authorized employees, agents and subcontractors with a "need to know". These persons may use our customers' personal information for Storage Post business purposes only. Our employees are bound by our policies to maintain the confidentiality of our customers' personal information. Employees who violate their confidentiality obligations are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
We employ reasonable physical, technical and administrative practices that are aimed at guarding our customers' personal information. In that regard, personal information is maintained within a secure environment. For example, for the security of your online visit to storagepost.com, we may make use of secure server software (SSL) and firewalls to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. We may also use encryption techniques and/or authentication procedures. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or internal security system can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Storage Post cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
By using our web site or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of our site or your account with us. Unless you indicate otherwise, we may notify you using the most current email address you provided to us.
