We use Personal Information in order to provide the Services, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • To provide access to the Quick Load website and applications;
  • To enforce our Terms of Service;
  • To process user registration with the Services;
  • To provide users with information, administrative notices and bulletins, and communications relevant to user accounts and services;

In addition, tracking information may be collected when using the Services, in particular geographic location. GPS coordinates of the shipments being transported through the use of our Services are sent directly to our servers. This information is used to provide Users with support, notify carriers when shipments are available for pickup, and inform consignees and receivers of arrival times, inform shippers of the location of a dispatched load, and for our internal business purposes.

Session Data

We use Session Data to better understand how our Site is navigated to and used, so we can improve our Site’s content and ease of use, personalize and improve viewing experiences on our Site and provide relevant information. We may use service providers to collect Session Data on our behalf. You may opt-out of certain Session Data being collected while you are using a mobile device.

Pixel Tags

We use pixel tags to monitor the open rate of our communications. This helps us understand the effectiveness of communications we send. We do not use this information for any other purpose.

Survey and Focus Groups

In the event you participate in surveys or focus groups, your participation and responses will be kept confidential and will not be shared with third parties without your permission.

Aggregated Information

Aggregated information is information recorded in any form about more than one entity or  individual, where the identity of the entity or individual is not known and cannot be inferred from the information. We may use aggregated information to describe our user base to current or potential partners, current or potential users, investors and advertisers; after a survey, to understand and respond to market needs and preferences; or to make recommendations to other users of our Site.

What we do NOT do

We do not and will not, at any time, request your payment or billing information, User ID, password or national or state identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is our priority. For more information about phishing, you may want to visit the Federal Trade Commission website.

  1. To whom we disclose Personal Information

From time to time, we may disclose your Personal Information as follows:

  • When third party carriers and shippers provide services through Quick Load user information may be provided, only to the extent necessary to carry out or receiver the services being provided;
  • When Quickload is required to provide information in response to a subpoena, court order, to other applicable law or legal process;
  • When Quickload has a good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to prevent or respond to fraud, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Quickload, users, and others;
  • If Quickload merges or is acquired by another company, is part of a sale of assets user information may be disclosed and/or transferred to tan acquirer, or successor or assignee;
  • In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets

Although Quickload does not generally disclose personal information to third parties, Quickload is not responsible for any issues that may arise regarding the Privacy Policy of any such third parties. By consenting to this Policy, you hereby agree to release and to hold Quickload harmless from any claims and/or damages that may arise from the actions of third parties.

National Security

In order to protect national security, the United States Government and other governments may request access to shipment information and records, which typically includes party names, shipment origin, destination, duration of transportation, form of payment, credit card numbers, addresses, and telephone numbers. In response to such request, Quickload will give access to all the information you provide at the time of use of the Services to the applicable government agencies.

  1. How we retain and store Personal information

If you are a User, you can access your account from the home page of our Site, after logging onto our Site. Your “My Shipments” page contains information about your current, canceled or past use of the Services. Your account page also contains your name, e-mail address, e-mail and password settings. It may also contain other information so that you do not need to re-enter it each time you use the Services. For example, your account page may contain your billing information unless you tell us not to store it.

You can access, modify or close your account as described in How to access, modify, or close your account.

Retention and Storage

We will retain your Personal Information in our databases in accordance with our Records Management Policy and applicable laws. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with us, but it will be only as long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise later.  We may also need to retain certain information to prevent fraudulent activity; protect ourselves against liability, permit us to pursue available remedies or limit any damages that we may sustain; or if we believe in good faith that a law, regulation, rule or guideline requires it.

Your Personal Information will be stored in secured locations and on servers as described in How we protect Personal Information.

  1. How we protect Personal Information

Quickload employs physical, administrative and technical safeguards to help protect the confidentiality and integrity of Personal Information and to reduce the risk of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure or modification of Personal Information. When Personal Information is sent to our Users, we require in our contracts with them that they protect all Personal Information in a manner consistent with the principles articulated in this Privacy Policy.

If you choose to contact Quickload through our Site, you should be aware that any information transmitted electronically via the World Wide Web might not be secure. Quickload assumes no liability for the loss of any information that you transmit to us via the World Wide Web. However, if you provide your credit card information on our Site’s credit card forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

In communicating with you, we may send e-mail as unencrypted plain text because we are aware that most Users and Guests cannot readily process encrypted e-mail. This is done for your convenience, but with the security concern that, if misrouted or intercepted, it could be read more easily than encrypted e-mail.

  1. How to access, modify or close your Account

We endeavor to ensure that Personal Information is as accurate, complete and current as necessary for the purposes for which we use that information. We encourage you to visit your account to review your Personal Information. You can access your Personal Information and update it or delete inaccuracies, as necessary.

If you wish to close your account, you can do so by contacting us as indicated in Contact Information.  We will respond to such requests within 30 days following receipt at the e-mail or mailing address stated above. If we receive your request at a different e-mail or mailing address, we will respond within a reasonable period of time, but not to exceed 150 days from the date received. If you request that we close your account, we will promptly do so, to the extent possible. Once your account is closed, however, you will not be able to use many of the services available on our Site to Users, unless you re-register.

Please remember that we may not be able to honor your request if we are legally obligated to retain information, or for other reasons described in Retention and Storage.

  1. Privacy Cookies and Pixel Tags

A cookie is a small text file that our computer sends to your computer, and that your computer sends back to us each time you make a request from our Site. A cookie contains a unique identification number that identifies the visitor's browser, but not necessarily the visitor. A pixel tag is a small graphic image similar to a cookie.

When you access our Site, we may place cookies, pixel tags or other code on your computer to collect Session Data. These technologies are used to help us recognize you when you visit our Site again or to help us customize your online experience. Unless you specifically inform us of your identity (e.g., by registering with us or signing into your account using your account credentials), we will not know who you are.

Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit.

If you decide not to accept our cookies, you will be able to access those parts of our Site that are available to the general public, but you may not be able to access many of our Services.

Third Party Advertisers

Opting-Out

As part of the registration process we give you the ability to receive commercial communications about Products and Services, updates to our Site and customized advertisements and promotions that are targeted to your specific interests. We send these communications directly ourselves or via third party service providers. If you do not opt-out from receiving these communications, we will send them to you. At any time you may change your selection to receive or not receive these by changing your preferences.  In addition, these communications will include instructions on how to unsubscribe.

Monitoring

Quickload may from time to time monitor and review any information transmitted or received through our Site, or through telephone or e-mail communications, for quality assurance and other purposes. We reserve the right to censor, edit, remove or prohibit the transmission or receipt of any information that Quickload deems inappropriate or in violation of our Site Terms of Service. During monitoring the information may be examined, recorded or copied.

  1. Changes to the Privacy Policy and Changes in Ownership

We may change or supplement this Privacy Policy from time to time. Privacy Policy changes will apply to the information collected from the date we post the revised Privacy Policy to our Site, as well as to existing information held by us.

Please revisit this page periodically to stay aware of any changes. If we decide to change this policy in a material way, we will obtain the necessary consents required under applicable privacy laws if we seek to collect, use or disclose Personal Information for purposes other than those to which consent has been obtained, unless otherwise required or permitted by law. If any proposed change is unacceptable to you, you may request that we close your account.

  1. Disputes

Quickload understands that the security of your personal information is important, and therefore, provides commercially reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls implemented to protect personal information of all its users. Notwithstanding, Quickload hereby disclaims any liability for any unauthorized access to or use of our servers and/or personal or financial information stored therein. Further, Quick Load cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to us or received from us or through one of our applications and disclaims any responsibility for or liability related to loss or damage of whatever nature due to harmful programs received from this site or by means of files downloaded from this site.  By consenting to this Policy, you hereby agree to release Quickload from any liability and to hold Quickload harmless for any damages that may result therefrom.
