Privacy Policy

 

ComFreight.com, LLC (“ComFreight”, “the Company”, “we”, “us”) is sensitive to your concerns regarding how we use the personal information we collect from you (and / or your business organization) through our website (the "Site") and other devices involved in exchanging information with us (and other users of our Site). Our Site and Applications are sometimes collectively referred to as "Online Services" for purposes of simplicity. ComFreight takes your privacy seriously, and has implemented this privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") and other internal measures and practices to keep your personal and financial information secure. The Privacy Policy covers ComFreight’s treatment of the Personally Identifiable Information we collect when you access our Online Services. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into our Terms of Service, and therefore governs your use of the Online Services. By using ComFreight’s Online Services, you accept the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Policy, please feel free to contact us.


What Information Do We Collect About Our Users?

Traffic Data. ComFreight uses a number of internal and third party methods to recognize visitor data such as IP addresses and browser settings (collectively "Visitor Data"). ComFreight’s internal servers and software automatically recognize Visitor Data. No Personally Identifiable Information is revealed during this process. The Site may use Visitor Data to compile traffic data regarding the types of visitors who access the Site at specific intervals (collectively "Traffic Data").

ComFreight may use the standard cookie feature of major browser applications and third-party providers, or employ internally developed cookies and tracking codes, that allow the Company to store a small piece of data on a visitor's computer, or any other device a visitor uses to access our Online Services, about his or her visit to the Site or use of Applications. ComFreight does not capture Personally Identifiable Information in cookies nor does it use cookies to mine Personally Identifiable Information.

We may use Traffic Data to analyze Site traffic, but this information is not examined for Personally Identifiable Information. We may also use Traffic Data to diagnose potential issues with our servers, administration & maintenance to our Site, or to display content according to your preferences. Visitor Data and Traffic Data may also be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers but only on an aggregated and anonymous basis.

Personal Information. ComFreight requires each user to provide us with personal information (collectively "Personally Identifiable Information") to access and use its products and services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured only when a visitor accesses Online Services, or speaks on the phone with a ComFreight employee, and willingly discloses such information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with an Online Service, engages in transactions, contacts Company personnel, or participates in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, chats, bulletin boards, discussion groups, requests for suggestions, or other aspects of services offered by ComFreight.

Personally Identifiable Information includes: (i) "Contact Data" (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) "Financial Data" (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code); (iii) "Demographic Data" (such as your zip code); and (iv) other "Legal Data" (such as organization’s tax identification number, equipment information, transportation licensure and proof of adequate bonding and insurance coverage’s).

Certain personal information becomes public record when documents are filed with the federal or state government, or with a court. For example, a corporation's name, business address, and registered agent name become public information when its articles of incorporation are filed. A Secretary of State may publish this information to its website or provide this information to third parties for a fee. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office publishes the names and addresses of trademark registrants. In some states, fictitious business names, including the name and address of the business owner, must be published in a newspaper. ComFreight’s Privacy Policy does not cover these or similar third-party actions.

Calls/Electronic Communications. In the regular course of our business, ComFreight may monitor and record phone conversations or email communications between you and its Company personnel for training and quality assurance purposes. We may receive a confirmation when you open or click on content in an email from us, which helps us make our communications to you more useful and interesting. If you do not wish to receive email from ComFreight, you may unsubscribe from our mailing list for any of the emails we send.

How Do We Use the Information We Collect and Do We Share the Information We Receive?

We use information we collect from the Online Services to communicate with you, process your orders, facilitate your transactions with our third-party business partners, and inform you of offers and discounts. For example, you may receive a welcome email that confirms your username and password, and later receive communications responding to your inquiries, providing services you request, and managing your account. We occasionally send service-related announcements, for example, to alert you if we need to temporarily suspend the Site for maintenance. We send promotional emails and newsletters from time to time to our users and those who have opted in to receive such emails. Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related communications, which are not promotional. If you do not wish to receive service-related communications, you may terminate your account by contacting us.

We share customer information with third parties only as follows:

Use of Personal Information. ComFreight, sometimes with the assistance of a third party or one of its subsidiaries, may use your Personally Identifiable Information to process your payment through secured merchant account services, to generate the products and services you order, and to analyze our customer demographics. Your Contact Data may be used to follow up with you on transactions you initiate through Online Services, respond to inquiries made through Online Services, inform you of changes to Online Services, and send you additional information about ComFreight and its products and services. Unless specifically authorized by you, we do not provide Personally Identifiable Information to third parties for marketing purposes. We may provide information to a third party in response to a subpoena or to otherwise comply with the law.

Contact Data and Traffic Data are used to gather general statistics about our customers and visitors. We may use Demographic Data to generate collective information about our users, but not in a way that identifies any user specifically. For example, we may inform third parties about the number of registered users and unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed.

Service Providers. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with companies that provide support services to us (such as a printer or email service provider) or that help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.

Opting Out. You may choose not to provide ComFreight with Personally Identifiable Information or you may turn off cookies in your browser by changing its settings. If you make these decisions, you may continue to use the Online Services and browse its pages. However, ComFreight will be unable to accept any posts without such Personally Identifiable Information.

If you do not wish to receive promotional materials from ComFreight, you may unsubscribe from our mailing list on any materials we send. Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related communications, which are not promotional. If you do not wish to receive service-related communications, you may terminate your account.

Website Areas Beyond ComFreight’s Control. The Site may include interactive forums, such as message boards and chat rooms. Any Personally Identifiable Information disclosed in these areas is public and becomes public information. You should use caution when deciding whether to disclose your personal information in these forums.

Other Transfers. We may share Personally Identifiable Information and other data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with ComFreight. If ComFreight is merged, acquired, or sold, or if some or all of our assets or equity are transferred, we may disclose or transfer Personally Identifiable Information and other data in connection with these associated transactions.

Bankruptcy. In the event of a ComFreight bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used. If such an event occurs, your Personally Identifiable Information may be treated like any other ComFreight asset and sold, transferred, or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted under this Privacy Policy, without notice to you or your consent.

Links

Third-Party Websites and Third-Party Service Providers. ComFreight may maintain links to other websites and other websites may maintain links to the Online Services. This Privacy Policy applies only to ComFreight and not to other websites accessible through your use to access ComFreight, each of which may have privacy policies materially different from this one. If you visit other websites, ComFreight is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those sites. It is your responsibility to review the privacy policies of non-ComFreight websites to confirm that you understand and agree with them.

We may work with third-party service providers that we do not own or control. Unless authorized by you, we do not provide your Personally Identifiable Information to any third-party service providers, except as explained in this Privacy Policy.

Service Partners.
We may share business contact information with other businesses who provide additional services to users and who are under specific written agreement to provide services to users on behalf of ComFreight. This information is gathered upon automatic opt-in at the time of sign up and may be used to offer complementing services through direct solicitation on behalf of our partners.

Accessing and Changing Your Account

User Access to Order Information. ComFreight will share with you, or anyone listed as an authorized contact for your account, information regarding your account. This may include information about the nature and status of your postings, information you provided to process your posts, payment information, and contact information. For some products, you may decide to share information about your postings with retained legal counsel. We also may provide information to a third party in response to a subpoena or to otherwise comply with the law.

How Secure Is the Personal Information We Collect?

Our Commitment to Data Security. We strive to make certain that our servers and connections incorporate the latest encryption and security devices. We have implemented physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Credit card and personal information are transmitted by secure servers. Documents are typically delivered to you via secured email. Unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure and we therefore cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit to or from the Site, Applications, or through the use of our services, and you provide this information at your own risk. ACCORDINGLY, WE DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR THE THEFT, LOSS, OR INTERCEPTION OF, OR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS OR DAMAGE TO, YOUR DATA OR COMMUNICATIONS BY USING THE SITE, APPLICATIONS, AND OUR SERVICES. YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND AND ASSUME THESE RISKS.
