Progress Storage operates several websites including progressstorage.com and our storage facility management database. It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites and providing you with awesome storage and parking services.
Like most website operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use the website. From time to time we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate to assist our advertisers and service providers.
We also collect potentially personally-identifying information that is collected by Gooogle Analytics. The analytics feature Collective Idea has implemented is based on Display Advertising (e.g., Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the Doubleclick Campaign Manager integration, or Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting). Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customer Display Network ads using Ads Settings.
We will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected from Google Display Advertising features that is based on the DoubleClick cookie unless we have robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. We only disclose logged in user IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.
At any time, visitors may choose to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking with the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
We use the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting feature to identify trends in the usage of our website for our internal use.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information (like when you rent storage space and we need to know who you are). Those who engage in transactions with Progress Storage are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. All credit card information is stored in our database provider’s secures servers . In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Progress Storage. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in renting storage or doing certain website-related activities.
