1. The domain name and browser used to access the Internet;
2. The date and time of visits;
3. The pages visited; and
4. The address of the website visited immediately prior to visiting our website.
We collect this information for statistical purposes (e.g., to measure site traffic) and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

Securing & Storing Your Personally Identifiable Information
Five Star Store It understands that the security of your personal information is important. We provide reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your personal information. We use reasonable security measures on our websites to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information in our control. These security measures include use of Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”), firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention, network monitoring, and encryption and passwords. The Internet, however, is an open environment and data may flow across various networks, some of which employ inadequate security measures, resulting in unauthorized access to data. Transmission of such data is therefore entirely at your own risk. While it is impossible to completely protect a website, Five Star Store It works hard to keep your data safe.
By using the www.StoreItUSA.com website, or providing information to us through any means, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically about matters regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues.
If we store information you provide to us, we do store it on our secure servers. Details relating to any transactions will be transmitted using SSL technology.
