Personal Information. We collect several types of personal information from and about users of our Website, including information you provide to us either through our Website or call center. Your use of this Website constitutes your consent to collect and use your personal information obtained from you. For purposes of this policy only, "personal information" refers to any information by which you can be personally identified that includes name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, credit card information, your responses to our survey questions, and information relating to any orders you place.
Do-Not-Track Signals. Some web browsers may transmit "do-not-track" signals to websites with which the browser communicates. Currently, there is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. PODS currently does not take action in response to these signals.
Minors. We do not knowingly collect personal information from minors and ask that children under 18 years of age not submit personal information on our Website without parental consent. Although we cannot prevent children under 18 from submitting personal information, we will destroy such information if we are made aware that proper consent was not given.
Use/Disclosure. We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any personal information, in the following ways: responding to your inquiries, providing you with information about our products and services that you request from us or other information that you find useful (regardless if a business relationship exists between us), aggregate statistics about our customer’s preferences, processing orders you have submitted, maintaining your account, to carry out obligations and enforce our rights arising from any contracts entered into between you and us. To ensure that you receive any e-mails that we may send to you, confirmations may be sent to us or our service provider when you open such emails or click certain email links. These confirmations may also show whether your e-mail application supports graphics so we can tailor our messages to you.
Occasionally, we may deliver marketing and account information relevant to you, such as discount coupons, information about new product offerings, reservation confirmations, surveys, account information, notification services, and for administrative reasons.
You may opt-out of receiving any of our marketing or promotional emails at any time by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the links provided in any emails received from us.

Security. PODS recognizes your personal data is your private information, so we strive to achieve high standards in how it is used and providing for its safekeeping. Our Website uses some of the most secure forms of online communication available, including industry-standard encryption technology to keep your personal information safe. Whenever you provide information, we use secure socket layer (“SSL”) technology to make sure that it is "encrypted," or, scrambled, so that no one else can read it while it is being transmitted over the Internet.
To protect your personal information, PODS maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in keeping with industry standards and practices, all of which are regularly updated in response to changes in technology. We strictly limit access to information about you to those employees who need to know the information in order to perform their jobs. All employees are prohibited from accessing our files and databases without proper authorization. We periodically audit for compliance with this standard and impose penalties for any failure to comply with this policy.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to us. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. You should always safeguard your own personal information by protecting passwords used to access websites and by safely disposing of records no longer needed.
