Visitors to our website
When someone visits www.miistorage.com we use a third-party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.
We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.
We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.
We recognize and respect your need for privacy and security as you visit our site.
While we do not collect identifying information about visitors to our site, we do use standard software to collect information for the strict purpose of tracking activity on our site.
This allows us to understand how many people use our site and which pages and features are most popular. The information we collect and store is:
- The web site that referred you to us (if any)
- The date and time the pages were accessed

- Your approximate (nearest city) geographic location
