We share information to

information we collect with our affiliates, or to cooperate with an authorized
law enforcement or regulatory investigation. In addition, we may share personal
information with other third parties with the consent of the individual to whom
the information pertains.
If you are performing
services directly or indirectly for us and using an application provided by us,
then we may collect information for the purpose of providing information to our
carriers and customers. We may also share your personal information with
third-party vendors that perform tasks on our behalf and under our instruction.
These third-party vendors may use your personal information only in connection
with the services they perform on our behalf and they are bound to protect your
personal information in a manner consistent with our own policies and
practices. On our website, you may have an opportunity to post user-generated
content using social networking tools available on those sites. If you take
advantage of this opportunity, remember that the user-generated content you
post is available to others who visit the website and therefore you should have
no expectation of privacy with respect to such content. In addition, you may

to notify users about legal demands for their personal data when appropriate in
our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an
emergency. We may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that
the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but we do not
promise to challenge every demand.
We also reserve the
right to transfer information about you to a successor organization if, for
example, we transfer the ownership or operation of one of our websites to
another organization or if we merge with another organization. If such a
transfer occurs, we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use
personal information you have provided to us in a manner consistent with this
policy. Following such a sale or transfer, you may contact the entity to which
we transferred your personal information with any inquiries concerning the
processing of that information.

depending on applicable law, when you first provide contact information through
one of our websites. In addition, we will include an “unsubscribe”
link in each electronic newsletter or promotional e-mail we send you, so that

We store your data no
longer than necessary and we annually evaluate this necessity with your
privacy, our relation and the applicable legislation in mind.
We may transfer the
personal information we collect about you to countries other than the country
in which the information was originally collected. Those countries may not have
the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided
the information. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will
protect that information as described in this policy.
If you are located in
the European Economic Area or Switzerland, we comply with applicable legal
requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal
information to countries outside of the EEA or Switzerland including the Data
Protection Directive 95/46/EC and, as of May 25, 2018, the General Data
Protection Regulation (GDPR).

How We Protect
We maintain reasonable
administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality
and security of your data, such as HTTPS. We regularly monitor our systems for
possible vulnerabilities and attacks. Unfortunately, no website, server or
database is completely secure or ‘hackerproof’. We therefore cannot guarantee
that information about you will not be disclosed, misused or lost by accident
or by the unauthorized acts of others. StoreShippers never collects information
for third party commercial marketing purposes nor does it create individual
profiles or provide your information to any third party organization. StoreShippers
will only share your information with third parties when and as you request or
as otherwise required by law.
Use of Our Web
Sites by Children Under the Age of Thirteen
We are proud of our
website and we strive to ensure that they do not offend people of any age.
However, unless otherwise noted on a particular site, our websites are not
intended for children under the age of thirteen years without the permission of

identifiable information on or through our website without the consent and
supervision of a parent or guardian, please contact us using the information
provided below so that we can take appropriate action.

Our website may provide
links to other websites for your convenience and information. These websites
can operate independently from StoreShippers. Linked sites may have their own
privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review. In addition,
a link to a non-StoreShippers website does not mean that StoreShippers endorses
or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use, of such website. It
is up to you to take precautions to ensure that whatever you select for your
use is free of such items as viruses, worms, Trojan horses and other items of a
destructive nature. StoreShippers is not liable for the privacy practices or
