Communications from the Site
Special Offers and Updates
We send all new members a welcoming email to verify password and
username. Established members will occasionally receive
information on products, services, special deals, and a
newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we
present the option to not receive these types of communications.
Please see the Choice and Opt-out sections.
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for
contact information such as name and email address. Out of
respect for our users privacy we provide a way to opt-out of
these communications. Please see the Choice and Opt-out
On rare occasions it is necessary to send out a strictly service
related announcement. For instance, if our service is
temporarily suspended for maintenance we might send users an
email. Generally, users may not opt-out of these
communications, though they can deactivate their account.
However, these communications are not promotional in nature.
[Users may opt-out of these communications. Please see our
Choice and Opt-out section.]
We communicate with users on a
regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to
issues relating to their account we reply via email or phone, in
accordance with the users wishes.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may
need to disclose personal information when required by law
wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is
necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court
order or legal process served on our Web site.
Third Party Intermediaries
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit
card processing company to bill users for goods and services.
These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally
identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
In the event Toy Box Storage LLC. goes through a business
transition, such as a merger, being acquired by another company,
or selling a portion of its assets, usersí personal information
will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.
Users will be notified via [email] [prominent notice on our Web
site for 30 days] prior to a change of ownership or control of
their personal information. If as a result of the business
transition, the usersí personally identifiable information will
be used in a manner different from that stated at the time of
collection they will be given choice consistent with our
notification of changes section.
Our users are given the opportunity to Ďopt-outí of having their
information used for purposes not directly related to our site
at the point where we ask for information. For example,
our order form has an Ďopt-outí mechanism so users who buy a
product from us, but donít want any marketing material, can keep
their email address off of our lists.
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and
promotional communications may opt-out of receiving these
communications by replying to unsubscribe in the subject line in
the email or email us at or the user may contact us at [PHONE]
[EMAIL] or [POSTAL MAIL] to opt-out.]

being collected by any outside parties. We do this so our
users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they
should proceed with services that require an outside party.

contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a
choice whether or not to disclose this information. The
requested information typically includes contact information
(such as name and shipping address), and demographic information
(such as zip code). Usersí personally identifiable
information is not shared with third parties unless we give
prior notice and choice. Though we may use an intermediary to
conduct these surveys or contests, they may not use usersí
personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
If a user elects to use our referral
service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for
the friendís name and email address. Toy Box Storage LLC.

precaution to protect our usersí information. When users
submit sensitive information via the Web site, their information
is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order
form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit

the industry - SSL. While on a secure page, such as our
order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as
Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes

While we use SSL encryption
to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything
in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of
our usersí information, not just the sensitive information
mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only
employees who need the information to perform a specific job
(for example, our billing clerk or a customer service
representative) are granted access to personally identifiable
information. Our employees must use password-protected
screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they
return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to
user information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept
up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every
[quarter], as well as any time new policies are added, our
employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we
place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our usersí
information is protected. Finally, the servers that store
personally identifiable information are in a secure environment,
If users have any questions about the security at our Web site,
users can send an email.
Supplementation of Information
In order for this Web site
to properly fulfill its obligation to users it is necessary for
us to supplement the information we receive with information
from 3rd party sources.
In order for this Web site
to enhance its ability to tailor the site to a userís
preference, we combine information about the purchasing habits
of users with similar information from our partners, [COMPANY Y
& COMPANY Z], to create a personalized user profile. When
a user makes a purchase from either of these two companies, the
companies [we] collect [and share] personal [and demographic]
information back with us.
Correcting/Updating/Deleting/Deactivating Personal Information
If a userís personally identifiable
information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal
address), or if a user no longer desires our service, we provide
a way to correct, update or delete/deactivate usersí personally
identifiable information. This can usually be done by emailing
our Customer Support.
Notification of Changes
If we decide to change our privacy
policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement,
the homepage, and other places we deem appropriate so our users
are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it,
and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. We
which the information was collected. If, however, we are going
to use usersí personally identifiable information in a manner
different from that stated at the time of collection we will
notify users via email. Users will have a choice as to whether
or not we use their information in this different manner.
However, if users have opted out of all communication with the
site, or deleted/deactivated their account, then they will not
be contacted, nor will their personal information be used in
this new manner. In addition, if we make any material
changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user
information already stored in our database, we will post a
prominent notice on our Web site notifying users of the change.
In some cases where we post a notice we will also email users,
who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them
of the changes in our privacy practices.
