Protecting your information (Security Policy)
Our Security Practices
Our internal data security policies restrict access to customers’ personal information to authorized employees, agents and subcontractors with a “need to know.” These persons may use our customers’ personal information for Security Storage business purposes only. Our employees are bound by our policies to maintain the confidentiality of our customers’ personal information. Employees who violate their confidentiality obligations are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that are designed to guard our customers’ personal information. For example, for the security of your online visit to securitystroragewy.com, we may make use of secure server software (SSL) and firewalls to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Personal information is maintained within a secure environment. We may also use encryption techniques and/or authentication procedures. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or internal security system can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Security Storage cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your personal information, we may attempt to notify you as necessary by email or other means so you can take appropriate protective steps. By using our web site or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of our site or your account with us. Unless you indicate otherwise, we may notify you using the most current email address you provided to us.
Deposits, Refunds and Pro-rated Rent
Deposits, Refunds, and Pro-Rated Rent policies are stipulated in your Security Storage Rental Agreement. In general:
A lease commences on the beginning lease date and terminates on the last day of the current month. The rent for this rental period is prorated. After the initial rental period, the lease will be automatically renewed for one (1) month rental periods.
No refunds are made following move-in.
If the monthly rent is not paid on or before the 10th day of each month that the lease is in effect, you will be considered to be in default.
The administration fee at the beginning of the new rental period for the storage unit includes the lock.
Late payment charges, lien charges, cut lock fees and other special fees are in accordance with your specific rental agreement.
This policy is effective as of August 22, 2017. As we update and expand our services, we may make changes to this policy. If the changes result in materially less protection for your personal information than that provided in this policy, we will make reasonable efforts to contact you and obtain your consent to the changes before using information that we have previously collected.
