You may discontinue our use of your personal data if you later decide that you no longer want us to (also known as "opting out" or "unsubscribing"). If we wish to use this information for purposes other than those for which the data was initially collected, we will obtain your consent. We will also offer a means to opt out of receiving any further such communications.

Collection of Anonymous Computer Information

When you visit the Site, we do not collect any personal data about you without your permission. However, we do collect anonymous information about you if your computer is set to allow that type of collection. This type of information allows us to monitor traffic on the Site, evaluate customer interest and perform other market research activities, such as surveying browsing habits on our sites, including the Site. This may include the following anonymous information:

  • Use of IP addresses

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your internet service provider or through your organisation's local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.

Storacar, or third party companies acting on behalf of Storacar, may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration and analyse the use of the Site. We also may use IP addresses to identify users of the Site when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Site's terms of use, or to protect our services, the Site or other users.

  • Cookies

Storacar uses cookies on this Site to allow us to analyse its use and improve the experience for visitors to the Site. Cookies are tiny files, composed of a string of letters and numbers, placed on your computer by web page servers. To learn more about cookies and their use by Storacar, please review our cookie policy

Use of Your Personal Data

We will use your personal data in the following ways: to carry out our obligations arising from any contracts entered into between you and us and to provide you with the information and services that you request from us; to provide you with information about other services we offer that are similar to those that you have already purchased or enquired about; and to provide you, or permit selected third parties to provide you, with information about services we feel may interest you.

If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale or negotiations of a sale to you. If you are a new customer, and where we permit selected third parties to use your data, we (or they) will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this. If you do not want us to use your data in this way, or to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please tick the relevant box situated on the form on which we collect your data (the order form or registration form); to notify you about changes to our goods or service; and to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer/device.

Sharing Your Information with Third Parties

Storacar will not share your personal data with third parties who are not associated entities (such as members of our group of companies – for which, see below) for their own use unless we have obtained your consent to do so. When you provide personal data to Storacar, it will be accessible to some of Storacar's business partners, such as companies we retain to fulfil requests for information or provide assistance on specific programs or projects. Storacar requires third parties to whom it discloses personal data to protect personal data using substantially similar standards to those required by Storacar. We also require that these third parties not use your personal data for any use that is not specifically authorised by Storacar.

There may also be instances in which Storacar is required to share your information with third parties who have not been retained by us (directly or indirectly), such as if we are required to do so because of an applicable law, court order or governmental regulation, or if such disclosure is otherwise necessary in support of a criminal or other legal investigation or proceeding. Furthermore, in the event that Storacar sells or buys any business assets or if Storacar or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or purchaser. Entities receiving personal data under these conditions typically have privacy requirements that apply to their handling of your information.

Personal data collected from you may also be transferred to a third party in the event that the business of the Site and the customer data connected with it is sold, assigned or transferred. In the event that such sale, assignment or transfer should occur, Storacar would require the buyer, assignee or transferee to treat your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.

Sharing Information with Other Storacar Companies or Affiliates

The personal data that you provide to Storacar may be shared with other companies within the Storacar group of companies. This may mean that your personal data may be transferred to Storacar affiliates at, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (the "

EEA

"). By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. Other Storacar companies or affiliates that may receive your personal data will abide by substantially similar privacy requirements relating to your personal data. Other Storacar companies to whom we provide your personal data may use your personal data in the same way as we may. We strive to protect personal data entrusted to us no matter what country the information is stored in or transferred to, and have appropriate procedures in place to help ensure the security of your personal data.

Security of Your Information

We use appropriate technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect data that you provide to us from loss, misuse or alteration. Despite these safeguards, it is not possible to guarantee the absolute security of personal data. Internet transmissions, particularly email transmissions, are never 100% secure or error-free. We also caution you to guard your own computer and password against unauthorised access or use by others.
