When you enter sensitive information (such as Customer log in credentials entered onto the Stori dashboard), we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

If you contact us by e-mail or a “contact us” or similar feature on the Site, you should be aware that your transmission might not be secure. A third party could view the information you send by these methods in transit. If you have any questions regarding security you can contact us at meetstori.com

Phishing

It has become increasingly common for unauthorized individuals to send e-mail messages to consumers, purporting to represent a legitimate company such as a bank or on-line merchant, requesting that the consumer provides personal, often sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the e-mail address from which the e-mail appears to have been sent, and the domain name of the web site requesting such information, appears to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity is known as “phishing”. If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your password or credit card information) via e-mail or to a Web site that does not seem to be affiliated with gostori.com, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and report such request to us at gostori.com

Third Party Links

Our Site or Services may contain links to third-party websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party.

If you submit personal information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies.
