1. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION
Information you provide to us directly: We may collect personal information such as your first and last name, phone number, e-mail address, physical address, and payment information when you use or register for our Services. For example, we may collect your name, email, phone number, address, and payment information when you create an account or subscribe to a storage plan. We may collect your name, email, and phone number when you correspond with us or request a quote. We may also collect your contact information when you contact customer service, or otherwise communicate with us for account verification or other service-related matters.
Information we may receive from third party sites that connect to our Services: We may receive information about you from third parties and combine that with information we collect through our Services. For example, when you interact with us through a social media site or third-party service, such as when you like, follow, comment, add a review, provide referrals through our “Invite friends” feature, or share Clutter content on Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, or other sites, we may receive information from the social network, including your profile information, picture, user ID associated with your social media account, and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties. Subject to any privacy settings, any content that you make public is searchable by other individuals. If you remove information that you posted to any public portions of the Services, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Services, or if other individuals have copied or saved that information. The data we receive from these third-party sites is dependent upon that third party’s policies and your privacy settings on that third-party site. You should always review and, if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our Services.
Information from Other Sources: We may receive information about you from third parties and combine this information with other information we collect from or about you. For example, we may receive information about you to verify identity or payment information, update our records, or better provide the Services available to you. We also collect information about you that is publicly available. We may also receive your information from third parties such as distribution partners, data services, marketing firms, and analytics partners.
Address Book Information: Through our “Invite friends” referral feature, you may also directly choose a friend to invite to use our Services through your mobile device’s native app or email. With your permission, we may access your contact list available on your mobile device so that you can invite your friends to join our Services. When you send an invitation to your friends to join the Services, you will send an invitation through your mobile device’s native text messaging application, so your friends will know you are the person extending the invitation. We will not store or collect the information contained in your Address Book, and we will not use that information for any purpose other than to send invitations to your contacts at your request.
Job Application Information: Through our recruitment process, we may collect your full name, email address, phone number, resume, cover letter, immigration status, state/province/territory of residence, gender, race, and any additional information you choose to provide to us. We may also collect background check information including professional and educational history, criminal history that may be relevant for a position with our team, in connection with your job application when permitted by applicable law.
We, and our third-party partners, automatically collect certain types of usage information when you use our Services, read our emails, or otherwise engage with us. We typically collect this information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, file information, and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”).
We, and our third-party partners, use tracking technologies to automatically collect usage and device information, such as:
Cookies Opt-Out. If you would prefer not to accept cookies, most browsers will allow you to: (i) change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) set your browser to automatically reject cookies. Please note that doing so may negatively impact your experience using the Services, as some features on our Services may not work properly. Depending on your mobile device and operating system, you may not be able to delete or block all cookies. You may also set your email options to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain technologies that would allow us to know whether you have accessed our email and performed certain functions with it.
3. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We may use your information for the following purposes:
Please note that we may at times receive or process personal data to create deidentified data that can no longer reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, a particular individual or household. Where we maintain deidentified data, we will maintain and use the data in deidentified form and not attempt to reidentify the data except as required or permitted by law.
4. HOW WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We may share your personal information in the instances described below. For further information on your choices regarding your information, see the Your Choices About Your Information section below. We may share your personal information with:
5. ONLINE ADVERTISING AND THIRD-PARTY TRACKING
Interest-Based Advertising. We participate in interest-based advertising and use third-party advertising companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on your browsing history. We may share, or we may permit third-party online advertising networks, social media companies, and other third-party service to collect information about your use of our Services over time so that they may play or display ads on our Services, on other devices you may use, and on other websites, apps, or service, including on Facebook. Typically, though not always, the information we share is provided through cookies or similar tracking technologies, which recognize the device you are using and collect information, including click stream information, browser type, time and date you visited the site, and other information. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related service such as reporting, attribution, analytics, and market research.
Social Media Advertising. We display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and others. These companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in our Services while those users are on the social media platform or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them.
Cross-Device Linking. We, or our third-party partners, may link your various devices so that content you see on one device can result in relevant advertising on another device. We do this by collecting information about each device you use when you are logged in to our Services. We may also work with third-party partners who employ tracking technologies or the application of statistical modeling tools to determine if two or more devices are linked to a single user or household. We may share a common account identifier (such as an email address or user ID) with third-party advertising partners to help recognize you across devices. We, and our partners, can use this cross-device linkage to serve interest-based advertising and other personalized content to you across your devices, to perform analytics, and to measure the performance of our advertising campaigns.
Blocking or deleting cookies may negatively impact your experience using the Services, as some features and services on our Services may not work properly.
Some of these opt-outs may not be effective unless your browser is set to accept cookies. If you delete cookies, change your browser settings, switch browsers or computers, or use another operating system, you will need to opt-out again.
Google Analytics and Advertising. We use Google Analytics to recognize you and link the devices you use when you visit our Services on your browser or mobile device, log in to your account on our Services, or otherwise engage with us. We share a unique identifier, like a user ID or hashed email address, with Google to facilitate the Services. Google Analytics allows us to better understand how our users interact with our Services and to tailor our advertisements and content to you. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes data, as well as how you can control information sent to Google, review Google’s site “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners. You can learn about Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs, including the Google Analytics Browser Ad-On here https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We may also utilize certain forms of display advertising and other advanced features through Google Analytics, such as Remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, the DoubleClick Campaign Manager Integration, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting. These features enable us to use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick advertising cookie) or other third-party cookies together to inform, optimize, and display ads based on your past visits to the Services. You may control your advertising preferences or opt-out of certain Google advertising products by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager, currently available at https://google.com/ads/preferences, or by visiting NAI’s online resources at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices.
