On our Web Sites, 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 Web Site and therefore you should have no expectation of privacy with respect to such content. In addition, you may choose to use certain features on our Web Sites for which we partner with other entities. These features, which may include social networking and geographic location tools, are operated by third parties that are not affiliated with Freight Buddy. These third parties may use personal information in accordance with their own privacy policies. On sites on which these features are offered, the relevant third parties are identified. We strongly suggest you review the third parties’ privacy policies if you use the relevant features.
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 Web Sites to another organization or if we merge with another organization.

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.

We maintain reasonable administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality and security of information about you.

Freight Buddy will only share your information with third parties when and as you request or as otherwise required by law.

Our Web Sites may provide links to other sites for your convenience and information. These sites may operate independently from Freight Buddy. Linked sites may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review. In addition, a link to a non- Freight Buddy site does not mean that Freight Buddy endorses or accepts any responsibility for the content, or the use, of such site. 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. Freight Buddy is not liable for the privacy practices or the content of other sites and to the extent any linked sites you visit are not owned or controlled by Freight Buddy, we are not responsible for the sites’ content, any use of the sites, or the privacy practices of the sites.
