- INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you use the Services, we collect two types of information: Personal Information and Usage Data.
We define “Usage Data” as information about an individual’s activity on or through the Services that, by itself, does not identify the individual, such as browser type, operating system and webpages visited. Generally, we do not consider Usage Data as Personal Information because Usage Data by itself usually does not identify an individual. Usage Data may, however, be Personal Information under certain laws because it could be used to indirectly identify an individual.
We may link Personal Information and Usage Data or different types of Usage Data. We also may link publicly-available Personal Information, such as Personal Information available in public databases and through social networking websites. When the linked information identifies an individual person, we treat it as Personal Information.
- HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
When you use the Services: The information that we collect depends on how you use the Services. When you create an account, we collect the information that you provide to us.
We collect information through our server logs. A server log is a list of the activities that a server performs. Stash Storage’s servers automatically collect and store information in server logs.
We collect information about your computer, tablet or mobile telephone (“Device”), such as model, operating system version, mobile network information, IP address and MAC address, browser type, internet service provider, system settings, the time zone in which your Device is located, metadata and other information stored on your Device, as permitted by your operating system and account settings. Stash Storage may associate your Device information with your Stash Storage account. Some of this information is collected using Data Collection Technology as described in Section 5 below.
When you enable the location settings on your Device, we may collect your geolocation information with your consent.
We may from time to time conduct surveys to better understand the needs and profiles of our users. You may choose whether to participate in any survey.
Through Service Providers: Third parties that assist us with our business operations also collect information through the Services. For example, service providers collect information to help us detect and prevent fraud, conduct marketing campaigns, perform business and sales analysis, and support the functionality of certain features of the Services.
Through Public Areas of the Services. Stash Storage may offer areas in the Services where you can post information about yourself and others, communicate with others or upload content. Whatever you post in a public area may appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, Personal Information you voluntarily disclose on publicly-viewable web pages can be collected and used by others. Stash Storage cannot control who has access to public information or what they may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion when you publicly post your Personal Information.
- COOKIES AND OTHER DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGY
Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using the Services. A web beacon (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF) is a piece of computer code that enables us to monitor user activity and website traffic. To learn more about cookies and web beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
How We Use Data Collection Technology: Data Collection Technology helps us improve your experience of the Services by, for example, storing your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you use the Services, measuring the success of marketing campaigns, compiling statistics about use of the Services and helping us analyze technical and navigational information about the Services and to detect and prevent fraud.
We also use Google Analytics which is a Google service that uses Data Collection Technology to collect information about use of the Services and report website trends.
Google also offers a service that collects information by tracking a user’s behavior across third-party websites and helps us to learn more about our users. You can learn about Google’s practices in connection with this enhanced tracking and opt out of it by visiting www.google.com/settings/ads or by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We also may use other Data Collection Technology to collect information from the Device that you use to access the Services, such as your operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings.
Your Control of Cookies: Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your Device. You also may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your Device. Although you are not required to accept cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Services.
Our Policy On Do Not Track Signals: Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including Stash Storage, do not respond to DNT signals.
