We are not in the business of selling our user's information. There are, however, certain limited circumstances in which we may share such information with certain third parties, as set forth below.
Agents & Carriers: eFREIGHT, like many companies, hires other companies to perform certain functions. Examples include processing payments and performing credit checks. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information they need to complete the task and they are not allowed to use that information for any other purpose.
Promotional Notices: On occasions we may contact our users about our product or service. If we contact you in this way, it will only be to provide you with information about our products or services that we think you will like. If we do this, the only communication you receive will be from us and we will not give business information about you, such as your name or e-mail address.
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses, stores or assets. In transactions such as these, user information is generally one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, in the unlikely event that eFREIGHT or one of its business lines are acquired, user information may be one of the transferred assets.
Protection of eFREIGHT and Others: We may release account and other personal information when we believe that such release is appropriate to comply with law; protect the rights of, property or safety of our users, eFREIGHT or others; or enforce our Terms and Conditions and other agreements. In addition, we may exchange information with other organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
We take reasonable security measures to protect the information of our users. For example, when personal information is sent to and from your computer and our computers, such information is sent over a secured connection commonly known as SSL (Secured Sockets Layer). Our SSL certificate employs 128-bit encryption which is the strongest allowed by United States law.
