This Statement describes your rights regarding our collection, use, storage, sharing, and protection of your personal information. It applies to the VeriTread Site, and all related sites, applications, services, and tools where this Statement is referenced and under direct control of VeriTread regardless of how you access or use them, including mobile devices. If you find any part of the Statement unacceptable, please discontinue your use of the Service immediately.

Please direct questions regarding this statement to info@veritread.com.

When does VeriTread collect my personal information?

VeriTread gathers information from users in four ways: voluntary registration, cookies, web beacon technology and log files.

Voluntary Registration. When you register with VeriTread, we ask for certain necessary personal information. Other specific services may have additional registration requirements and may require you to provide additional information.

Cookies. When you access our websites, or use our applications and/or services and tools, we may place small data files on your computer or other device known as a "cookie". VeriTread uses a browser cookie to remember your login name (but not your password), as a reminder to assist you the next time you log on to our Site. A cookie helps the Site to recall your specific information or subsequent visits in order to simplify the process of delivering relevant content and ease site navigation. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to use interactive features of this or other websites that depend on cookies.

You may also encounter cookies from third parties, known as service providers, that we have allowed on our site that assist us with various aspects of our web site operations and services. VeriTread maintains no control over these third party cookies that you may encounter.

Web Beacons. VeriTread may use electronic images known as web beacons - sometimes called single-pixel gifs - that assist in delivering cookies on our sites and allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include web beacons in promotional email messages or our newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. VeriTread may also employ web beacons from third parties in order to help us compile aggregated statistics and determine the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns.

Log Files. VeriTread may also log standard information about your visit, including your IP address, browser type and language, access times, referring website addresses, the pages you view, the links you click and other actions taken in connection with the Site for the purposes of systems administration or to report information in aggregate form to our advertisers, sponsors, and corporate partners.

How is my personally identifiable information used?

We use the personal information you submit to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the Site.

Customized Look and Feel. We use your voluntary information, cookies, web beacons, and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Site; (b) provide a customized look and feel and personalized content and information; (c) monitor the effectiveness of our service; (d) monitor aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors and traffic patterns, demographics, users' preferences, and other information in the aggregate; (e) diagnose or fix technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific web company or ISP; and (f) help you efficiently access your information after you sign in.

E-mail. If you register with our Site, from time to time, VeriTread may email you with informative messages about our services or third party products and services we believe may be of interest to you.

With whom does VeriTread share information?

VeriTread may share user information with specific third parties for the purpose of providing additional services. In particular, VeriTread has several service partners who provide services or products and as part of such operations, these companies may be provided certain of your contact information. In addition, VeriTread also discloses aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services and to reach prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties. However, aggregate data is not traceable to you specifically. Except for these situations, we will not disclose your personal information to any third parties except to the extent necessary to provide you with a requested service or under circumstances required by law. We will disclose your personal information when we believe in good faith that any applicable law, regulation or legal process requires it, or where we believe disclosure is necessary to protect or enforce our rights.

Specific uses of personal information that vary from this Statement (if any) may be found in the Terms of Use or privacy policies applicable to that particular service. To the extent that you are notified of uses of your personal information which are different from those described in this Statement during your enrollment in any particular service, the uses of which you are specifically notified will govern that service,. Please note, however, that we do not control the privacy policies of our advertisers and other third party sites to which we provide banner ads and links. If you click through a banner ad or link and submit your information to an advertiser, you will be subject to their own privacy policies. VeriTread assumes no responsibility or liability for these third party policies or the actions of non-affiliated third parties. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

We may also share your personal information with:

Service providers under contract who help with our business operations.

Other third parties to whom you explicitly ask us to send your information (or about whom you are otherwise explicitly notified and consent to when using a specific service).

We may disclose non-public personal information to unrelated parties in special cases when we have reason to believe that that disclosure is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against a person or persons who may be causing injury to, or interference with, the rights or property of VeriTread (including the Site), computer users accessing the Site, or any third party. In addition, we may disclose information about individuals who access the Site to law enforcement agencies, judicial or government authorities, or to other individuals or entities in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes.

  • Blind Reverse Auction – Service Providers submit the best bid but are unable to view other Service Provider's bids.
  • Book It Now – Service Providers have the option to select the reserve price set by the Shipping Customer to accept the bid and end the auction automatically.
  • Direct Dispatch – Shipping Customer does not ask for any bids, but assigns the load to one Service Provider.[LM1] 

In the event a User elects to have its shipping load advertised via a bidding style, the User agrees that VT is acting as a neutral venue where the Shipping Customers and Service Providers can meet and enter into agreements. VT is not involved in the actual transaction between the Shipping Customers and Service Providers.

VT does not warrant the accuracy of any carrier profile. VT warrants that it exerts no control over the quality, safety, or legal aspects of any transaction made via this Site.

You agree that VT is not responsible for assisting You in any transaction or selection of services. Further, due to the difficult nature of verifying information on the Internet, VT cannot confirm the identity or ability of a Shipping Customer to pay for the services provided.

Load information includes but is not limited to, pick-up location and points of contact. Freight information refers to the commodity that is actually being hauled by the Service Provider. Freight information can come from independent shippers and other third parties and is not monitored by VT for content or accuracy. VT can provide manufacturer information from VT's equipment specifications database. Manufacturer's posted information may not always be accurate due to differing configurations of the equipment, or after market changes, and such information is not monitored by VT for content or accuracy. Fluids and fuel in the equipment, and other extraneous matter (including, but not limited to, mud, clay, sand, plant and tree debris, stray asphalt or concrete) may be present on any equipment, adding weight to the load. Also, in particular, equipment may have been modified, and may not correspond to the original manufacturer's specifications.

Service Providers will be provided information via a "Load Advisor" information section. This information is provided to the Service Provider from a combination of VT and other third parties. As a result of various sources, this information may not always be accurate. It is up to the Service Provider and User to verify the accuracy of all information prior to loading a machine or ordering permits.

For these reasons, VT highly recommends that Users accessing or relying upon load information contact the individual Shipping Customers anonymously through the website that have posted the load information in order to obtain final and confirmed load information. VT advises You to not rely solely upon the postings on this Site, and You agree to contact the Shipping Customers to obtain all load details before accepting the load. VT expressly disclaims any responsibility for inaccurate or incomplete information contained in the load postings.

Freight Estimator Tool: VT may provide a Freight Estimator Tool from time to time. This is designed to give a rough order magnitude freight cost estimate to a User in advance of purchasing equipment. VT expressly disclaims any responsibility for inaccurate or incomplete information contained in the Freight Estimator Tool.

Bill of Lading: VT may on behalf of the Service Provider generate a bill of lading ("BOL"). [LM4] This BOL is only issued out of convenience. VT expressly disclaims any responsibility for inaccurate or incomplete information contained in the BOL.

FEES

VeriTread Pro Fees: High volume shippers can pay a monthly subscription fee. By paying monthly, a High Volume Shipper obtains unlimited usage inside the VT marketplace.

Shipper Matching Fees: If a User selects to list their load via the Auction Style[LM5] , a matching fee will be assessed. This fee is calculated as a percentage (%) of total transport costs. VT only assesses the matching fee, and any and all other costs shall be between the Service Provider  and the Shipping Customer directly.

You further warrant that You will not:

  • Cause another person, entity or agent to engage in any conduct, act or behavior intended to purposely circumvent or avoid any applicable fees charged by VT.
  • Enter into any transaction with a User, including, but not limited to, letter of intent, memorandum of understanding, whether written or verbal, or formal or informal, that circumvents or avoids VT's absolute right to a fee for its services.

NO REFUNDS OR CANCELLATIONS
