b. Information Collection Technologies
Server Information. Like most internet websites, our servers automatically and temporarily store certain information in the server log files including:
A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. Cookies are a piece of text that is stored on your computer or device. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings. Please note that certain features of the Platform may not be available once cookies have been disabled.
Certain features of the Platform may use local stored objects (also called “Flash cookies”) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on our website. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as are used for browser cookies.
We additionally may use web beacons or pixel tags, which are tiny invisible graphic images, in the Platform. Web beacons and pixel tags may be used to count users who have visited its webpages and for related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
Click-Through URL. Some of our emails to you may contain a “click-through URL” which links to content on the Platform. When you click one of these URLs, it passes information through our web server before you arrive at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking on text or graphic links in emails you receive from Trailer Bridge.
Smart Phones. If you use a smart phone to access the Platform, we may be provided with and collect device-specific information, including your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, phone number, and mobile network information.
c. Information from Third Parties
We may receive personal information from other website-related sources.
Social Media. If you post publicly on our social media pages or otherwise post about us on social media sites, we may also collect that information. We encourage you to read the applicable privacy policies for your social media accounts. We have no responsibility for the data collection and use practices of those social media sites.
Third-Party Analytics. We may use third-party service providers (e.g., Google Analytics) to collect and analyze information about use of the Platform. We do not receive information from these service providers that can be used to specifically identify you.
2. Use of Personal Information
Trailer Bridge and its service providers may use your personal information to provide services and to contact you in response to inquiries you submit. We and our service providers may use your information to form or manage our contractual relationship with you, because we have a legitimate interest to do so, and/or to comply with a legal obligation:
On other occasions where we ask you for consent, we will use the information for the purposes which we explain at that time. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time; however, we may have other legal grounds for processing your information, including those identified above.

We may share your personal information (typically name, telephone number, origination location, and destination location) with our subcontracted transportation and related service providers for the purpose of providing transportation services to you. The entities with which we share information may be located in the United States or other countries.
Service Providers. We may disclose your personal information to certain service providers, such as our cloud hosting service provider or the companies we use for credit and/or background checks. These service providers are generally not permitted to use any personal information they may receive from us for purposes other than providing services to or on behalf of us.
Business Transactions. In the event that Trailer Bridge or some of its assets are sold or transferred or used as security, or to the extent we engage in business negotiations with our business partners, certain personal information that we have collected and stored may be transferred or shared with third parties as part of that transaction or negotiation.
Legal Requirements. If necessary, we may disclose specific information without your consent and without notice to you as required to comply with laws and regulations, or to comply with court orders, subpoenas, or lawful discovery requests. Information collected from you may also be used to investigate security breaches or otherwise cooperate with legal authorities.
Aggregated and De-Identified Information. Aggregated and de-identified information is not personal information because it cannot be attributed to any specific individual. We may disclose aggregated information without restriction.
4. How Trailer Bridge Protects Your Personal Information
We have implemented reasonable physical, technical, and organizational safeguards to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, acquisition, or disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Although we strive to keep your personal information secure, no safeguards can be guaranteed to be completely secure, so you should exercise caution when transferring personal and other sensitive information over the Internet. Please advise us immediately at the contact information listed below of any incident involving the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal information that is in our custody or control.
5. Third-Party Sites
The Platform may contain links to other websites.

We recognize that the Platform may be accessed from anywhere in the world, and that the laws of the jurisdictions in which some users are located may differ substantially from those of the United States and the State of Florida, where we are headquartered.
