Privacy Policy

WSI Connect LLC. (“WSI Connect”) operates several websites including self-storage-marketing.com, acceleratetechnologies.wordpress.com and www.wsi-connect.com. It is WSI Connect’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, WSI Connect collects 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. WSI Connect’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WSI Connect’s visitors use its website. From time to time, WSI Connect may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to WSI Connect’s websites choose to interact with WSI Connect in ways that require WSI Connect to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WSI Connect gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at www.wsi-connect.com to provide a username and email address.  In each case, WSI Connect collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WSI Connect. WSI Connect does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

WSI Connect may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites.  However, WSI Connect does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

WSI Connect discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on WSI Connect’s behalf or to provide services available at WSI Connect’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using WSI Connect’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WSI Connect will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, WSI Connect discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WSI Connect believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WSI Connect, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an WSI Connect website and have supplied your email address, WSI Connect may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with WSI Connect and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. WSI Connect takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. WSI Connect may use cookies to help WSI Connect identify and track visitors, their usage of WSI Connect website, and their website access preferences. WSI Connect visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using WSI Connect’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of WSI Connect’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If WSI Connect, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that WSI Connect goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of WSI Connect may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by WSI Connect and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, WSI Connect may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in WSI Connect’s sole discretion. WSI Connect encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
