Your Privacy is Important to Us

Your privacy is important to us here at ExpediteLoads.com. So we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, and store your personal information. Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions. As we update and expand our services, this policy may change, so please refer back to it periodically. By using our website or our service, you consent to our information practices.

For your convenience, we’ve indexed our Privacy Policy so as to help you more easily navigate and access areas of interest.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

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.

While using the ExpediteLoads.com service, you will have opportunities to post your profile information or other personal information in the Member area. Please understand that when you post such information, it is made public to other Members of ExpediteLoads.com and is not subject to this policy. We are not responsible for any third party’s use of personal information you publicly disclose through our service.

Like most web sites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, data/time stamp, and click stream data. We use this information to better understand and analyze trends, to administer our site (such as using your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server), and to gather demographic trends about who is visiting our web site.

Other technologies we may use include pixel tags and web beacons.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Except as set forth in this policy or as otherwise disclosed to you, we will not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to third parties without notifying you of our intent to share the personal information in advance and giving you an opportunity to prevent your personal information from being shared.

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. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms of Service and conditions or protect our operations or Members. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Children

Our service is not for children, but for adult professionals engaged in the transportation and logistics of freight in the US and Canada. As such, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18 years old. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child or adolescent under 18, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

Security

ExpediteLoads.com takes information security very seriously and uses reasonable administrative, technical, physical and managerial measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. For example, we utilize Secure Sockets Layering (SSL), an industry-standard protocol for certain of your transmissions to us, in order to encrypt the personal information that you send to us through the registration and sign up process.

Unfortunately, no security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and cannot assume liability for improper access to it. As noted above in the Disclosure of Personal Information, we may need to disclose your personal or financial information to (a) exercise our legal rights or defend against legal liability, (b) enforce this Privacy Policy or the ExpediteLoads.com Terms of Service. You acknowledge that third parties may unlawfully acquire your personally identifiable information. You should not expect that your personally identifiable information and financial information will always be private. However, ExpediteLoads.com is committed to never willfully disclose, for any reason or by any means, any personally identifiable or financial information you give us except as expressed in the Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service.

By using our web site and Membership services, or providing personal information to us through any means, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the ExpediteLoads.com site and our Membership service.
