Data protection is key for us and our clients!
Effective April 2020
Shipcar.org (herein referred to as "we", "us" or "our") considers your privacy a very important issue. We design and operate our services with the protection of your privacy as a primary concern.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information ("PII") is information that identifies you, is not generally available to the public and may include information about you personally. We collect the PII that you provide us via the Site so that we may provide you with the service(s) we offer. If you elect, we may also collect PII from third-party data providers. You are not obligated to provide us with PII; however, if you do not provide us with certain information that we request, we may not be able to respond to your quote request or otherwise conduct the business contemplated between you and us.
For example, in order to provide you with car shipping quotes, we collect your personal contact information including name, telephone number, email address, origin, destination, information about your vehicle and may also collect other related information.
Technologies such as: cookies, tags and scripts are used Shipcar.org and our partners, including our marketing partners, affiliates, and analytic service providers (e.g. Google Analytics). These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis.
When you visit our site, we also capture the user agent string from your device which helps us classify the type of device you are using to interact with the Site (e.g. desktop, tablet, mobile device). The user agent string does not, however, collect any personally identifiable information.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and advertising campaign data. We may combine this automatically collected log information with other information we collect about you. We do this to improve services we offer you, to improve marketing, analytics, or site functionality.
In addition, we may partner with third parties to either display advertising on our Web site or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our third party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on this site and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests.
Use of Information
By submitting your e-mail address and/or phone number (as the case may be) via this Site, you are providing written authorization for us to use that e-mail address and phone number to contact you periodically, via e-mail and manually-dialed and/or auto-dialed telephone calls or text message, concerning (i) your quote requests, (ii) any administrative issue regarding the Site or our services and/or (iii) information or offers that we feel may be of interest to you. We may also send e-mails to you periodically regarding updated quotes or requests to rate and review our service. You may opt out of receiving e-mails from us at any time unsubscribing as set forth in the applicable e-mail.
Additionally, typing your name on this Site as part of your request for information about car shipping rates and quotations, you are providing written authorization for us to provide that information to various car transport brokers, car transport carriers and other related third parties that participate in our quote network (collectively "Providers"). The Providers may provide your personal information to their carriers and other related vendors in order to generate price quotations and information relevant to your car shipment that you have requested, and the Providers may use the contact information (including telephone number(s)) you have provided to contact you directly with quotations means of telephone (manually or auto-dialed), text message, and email, even if you have registered your phone number(s) on local and/or national no-call lists. You further acknowledge and agree that each Provider that receives your quote request from this website or from our affiliates may confirm your information through the use of a consumer report.
Please be aware that, once you submit a quote request, there is no way for you to access or update the information you have submitted in connection with that request because it is passed onto 3rd parties, and we have no control or access to your PII. If you make a mistake in a request, you should re-submit your request and information in full, or correct the information with each 3rd party directly.
We will retain your information for as long as required to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
We use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the Providers are obligated to protect your PII to at least the degree established in this Policy. Additionally, it is our policy to require Providers to use commercially reasonable means to secure the receipt and processing of your PII. You should be aware, however, that after a provider contacts you directly, any information you provide directly to the Provider, which may be the same as or similar to the PII you submitted to us through this Site, will no longer be covered this Policy. Before providing your information directly to an individual Provider, you should make sure that you have read and understand that Provider's privacy policies and practices. We have no control over the Providers and their practices and we are not and will not be responsible or liable, financially or otherwise, for their respective privacy policies and practices. Also, be aware that the Providers may use the PII they acquire from this Site in connection with other information they acquire about you (from other sources that have collected PII about you) as well as information you provide them directly. We are not and will not be responsible or liable, financially or otherwise, for any of the PII that you provide directly to any Provider or that they acquire from sources other than this Site. In addition, if you no longer want to receive communications from the Providers regarding quotes, you must contact the respective Provider(s) directly and request that they no longer contact you. You may not opt out of communications from any Provider contacting us.
We may also share your PII with the following types of entities and/or under the following circumstances:
If you no longer desire to receive communications from us, you may opt-out emailing us directly.
The security of your personal information is important to us and we take commercially reasonable precautions in an effort to safeguard it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us anytime.
Changes in this Policy
If we change our privacy practices, we will post a revised version of the Policy on this Site and the revised Policy will be effective when posted. We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so please review the Site frequently for any changes. By continuing to use the services or the Site after the revised Policy is posted, you will be deemed to have been made aware of and to have accepted, and you will be subject to, such amended or revised Policy.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, you should first visit our contact web page at https://shipcar.org
