Your Privacy is Important to Us
Personal information means information that can be used to identify and contact you, specifically your name, postal delivery address, e-mail address, payment method (e.g., credit card, debit card, or other payment method accepted on our web site) and telephone number, as well as other information when such information is combined with your personal information.
When you sign up for our service, we ask you to supply us with personal information so that we can provide, enhance and personalize our services and marketing efforts. We use this personal information, for example, to process your sign up registration, your payments, and to communicate with you on these and other topics. We also use your e-mail address to send you from time to time, messages about new features, special offers, promotional announcements, consumer surveys and other correspondence concerning our service. If you are a Member of the ExpediteLoads.com service, at your discretion, you may set up Notifications to send you email or SMS (text) messages when certain search criteria are met, such as a load that comes available that matches your saved search. You are in control of these Notifications and you can adjust how you received these communications under the “Your Notifications” page under the Connections section of the Member area. Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, including messages relating to your account transactions.

Other technologies we may use include pixel tags and web beacons. Pixel tags and web beacons enable us to send email messages in a format a user can read, and they tell us whether an email has been opened or a web page has been viewed. We continually work to improve our services as well as our communications and the use of these technologies provides valuable feedback on the effectiveness of what we are doing and in turn help us provide more effective experience for our web site Visitors and Members.
We give you as a Member access to a broad range of information about your account, your profile and your interactions with us and other Members in the "Your Profile" portion of the Member area.

We use other companies, agents or contractors to perform various services on our behalf. For example, we have partnered with other companies to process credit card transactions, analyze and enhance data regarding our site and service, including Visitor and Members' interaction with our web site, and process consumer surveys. We do not authorize these companies to use your personal information except for the purpose of providing the services we request of them.
From time to time, we may partner with companies whose products we believe will interest our Members. In conjunction with these partners, we may send promotional announcements and/or serve web-based advertisements to our Members on their behalf.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities for ExpediteLoads.com to disclose your personal information.
