We receive, store and use this information to help us communicate with you, respond to your requests and improve the content and services that American Freight® has available.
We collect certain types of other information whenever you access our web sites. This includes the use of “cookies”, which are explained further below, and the information is used to help us provide content specific to your interests.
Electronic Mail Communications.
To enable us to more effectively communicate with our customers, you may receive a confirmation when you open e-mail correspondence, including your account registration, from us. We also may compare our list of e-mail addresses with those of our affiliates in order to avoid duplicative or otherwise unnecessary messages being sent to you.
Information from Other Sources.
To enable us to serve our customers’ needs, we may receive some limited information about you from our affiliates, partners and other third parties. We use the data to ensure the accuracy of our records and we integrate this data with your personal account information.
Use of Information
We intend to use the data provided to us above to operate the web site and to assist us with the delivery of content and other products and services. Your information may also be used to contact you when necessary and may be shared with other companies that may want to contact you with offers consistent with your preferences and approval.
If you send us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send us correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, we may collect such information into a file specific to you.
Email addresses obtained may be used to send promotional emails. Should you no longer want to receive emails from American Freight you can unsubscribe by clicking unsubscribe at thebottom of any email you receive from American Freight.
By accessing and using our web sites, you agree that, with respect to other users’ personally identifiable information that you obtain through the Site or through a www.americanfreight.com-related communication or American Freight-facilitated transaction, American Freight® hereby grants to you a license to use such information only for: (a) www.americanfreight.com related communications that are not unsolicited commercial messages, and (b) any other purpose that such user expressly opts into after adequate disclosure of the purpose(s). In all cases, you must give users an opportunity to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them. In addition, under no circumstances, except as defined in this se ction, can you disclose personally identifiable information about another user to any third party without our consent and the consent of such other user after adequate disclosure.
Use of IP Addresses
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer automatically when you access the Internet. Where possible, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our site and/or to improve our services to you.
Sharing of Information
Your account information is very important to us and we share such information only in limited situations. For example, we may share the information with affiliates of American Freight®, including those entities that control the content on some of our web pages.
Further, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose your name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, phone number, email, and company to American Freight® participants as we in our sole discretion believe necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that you r personally identifiable information or private communications will remain private.
As a general proposition, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party.
American Freight® uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls, system security measures and Secure Socket Layers (SSL). Please be advised that “perfect security” does not exist in commercial Internet applications and that such security measures may not prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of information on our web sites.
The registration pages, where you enter your personal and credit card information, are secure. This means that any information you send us is protected by encryption. It is easy to tell when you are protected by encryption – your browser displays a lock or a key which is no longer broken or it changes color when you are on a secure page. The actual icon and its location may vary depending on your browser. For example: Internet Explorer displays a closed padlock at the bottom of the page when a page is secure.
Except as specifically permitted by this section, you may not disclose your American Freight ® password to any third parties nor share it with any third parties. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personally identifiable information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately change your password. You may, however, disclose your password to certain third parties with whom American Freight® has entered into specific contractual and technical arrangements designed to safeguard your password (“Authorized Password Users”), in order to enjoy the benefits of those third parti es’ services in relation to the American Freight® services.
