This Privacy Notice describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from www.iselfstor.co.uk (the “Site”).
We (Business Storage Solutions Ltd, registered in England and Wales, company number 07575852, trading as iSelfStor) seek to safeguard your personal information, and to be compliant with applicable legislation. This is primarily found in the Data Protection Act 2018 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Business Storage Solutions Ltd is registered with the UK Information Commissioner under the registration number Z2696119.
We act as a data controller for information entered by customers who have signed up to our services.
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically-collected information as “Device Information.”
We collect Device Information using the following technologies:
- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org.
- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps. In the log files, we do not associate your IP address with other personal information.
- “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, email address and phone number. We refer to this information as “Order Information.” Although there is a form on our website for receiving your credit card number and related details, all this information is processed by a market leading and highly secure online payment provider, Stripe, and we do not collect or store this information.
When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Notice, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?
- Communicate with you;
- Secure the Site against hacking and suspicious activity;
- Screen our orders for potential risk or fraud; and
- When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.
We may use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk, hacking activity and fraud (in particular your IP address or your email address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns). Stripe may also use your Personal Information to help protect against fraud.
