How we use your information
This privacy notice tells you what to expect when we (Storage World) collects personal information. It applies to information we collect about:
Visitors to our websites
When someone visits www.storageworld.co.uk we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone. We do not make and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. If we do want to collect personally identifiable information through our website, we will be upfront about this. We will make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
We may use a third-party provider, to deliver our e-newsletters. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter.
We use a contact form which collects personal information required to respond effectively to a user’s enquiry. The details collected are stored in our secure WordPress CMS and deleted once no longer needed.
Access to personal information
Storage World try to be as open as we can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information. Individuals can find out if we hold any personal information by making a ‘subject access request’ under the Data Protection Act 1998. If we do hold information about you we will:
- give you a description of it;
- tell you why we are holding it;
- tell you who it could be disclosed to; and
- let you have a copy of the information in an intelligible form
To make a request to Storage World for any personal information we may hold you need to put the request in writing addressed to Storage World, 40-46 Ashton Old Road, Manchester, M12 6LP.
If you agree, we will try to deal with your request informally, for example by providing you with the specific information you need over the telephone. If we do hold information about you, you can ask us to correct any mistakes.
