Does CARRIER Share the Information It Receives?
We are not in the business of selling our user's information. There are, however, certain limited circumstances in which we may share such information with certain third parties, as set forth below.
Agents and Strategic Transportation Partners: CARRIER, like many companies, hires other companies to perform certain functions. Examples include processing payments and removing duplicate information from our customer lists. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information they need to complete the task and they are not allowed to use that information for any other purpose. CARRIER may also share with its Strategic Partners the names of those users downloading our rating modules.
Promotional Notices: On very rare occasions we may contact our users about a product or service provided by another business. If we contact you in this way, it will only be to provide you with information about a business that we think you will like. If we do this, the only communication you receive will be from us and we will not give business information about you, such as your name, postal or email address.
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses, stores or assets. In transactions such as these, user information is generally one of the transferred business assets. Moreover, in the unlikely event that CARRIER or one of its business lines are acquired, user information may be one of the transferred assets.
