We urge you to read our Privacy Policy so that you will understand both our commitment to you and your privacy, and how you can participate in that commitment.

Please remember that any information that you reveal in a public forum is not subject to this Privacy Policy and will be seen by third parties not related to A-Way Courier and may be used by them to contact you or for unauthorized purposes. Also, if you link to a third party site from the A-Way Courier website, any information you reveal on that site is not subject to this Privacy Policy and you should consult the privacy policies of each site you visit.

  • to conduct market studies and trend analysis
  • to generate aggregate data and reports (information gathered from across all user accounts in a non-personally 
    identifiable manner)

Disclosure of Your Information

A-Way Courier will never knowingly sell, share, license or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. There are some ways however that we may disclose your personal identifiable information:

a) We may disclose information about you to third parties engaged to assist us in providing services to you or to carry out one or more of the purposes described above.

b) We may aggregate (gather up data across all user accounts) personally identifiable information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally.

Use of "Cookies"

We also collect information about you and your use of our site through the use of Cookies. "Cookies" are small computer files that we transfer to your computer's hard drive that allow us to know how often someone visits our site and the activities they conduct while on our site (such as the discussions you visited, etc.). This information helps us dynamically generate content on web pages specifically designed for you and also allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our site and for what purpose. Sponsors and advertisers may also use Cookies when you select their advertisement; we are unable to control their use of Cookies or how they manage the information they gather.

You can configure most web browsers to reject cookies or notify you when cookies are placed. If you reject cookies, you may not be able to use some of the features of the A-Way Courier Website. You must accept cookies to access the A-Way Courier Website as a registered member. Your access provider assigns an IP address to your computer when you use the Internet. We log each IP address that accesses the site, along with referring/destination URLs. We use this data, as well as other data in our databases, to analyze site and user behavior, troubleshoot technical problems, address complaints and prepare aggregated reports that we share with others.

Privacy Practices of other sites 

This privacy statement applies only to the A-Way Courier web site. The A-Way Courier website site does contain links to other sites. Please be aware that A-Way Courier is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personal information from you.

Security

We use industry-standard security protocols, such as (if and where appropriate) firewalls and restrictions on which employees can access user data. However, perfect security does not exist on the Internet. Also, in theory third parties can intercept Internet transmissions containing your personal data, and we don't control the privacy/security of transmissions to and from the site while in transit.

Changes/Termination of your Member Account

If you terminate your account or delete/change your data or content, we usually update our live databases immediately. However, some data may require more time to update, and some content may remain on the site but with your personal information removed. Also, we may be unable to propagate changes to partners who receive your data or content. If your account is being terminated or suspended, we may maintain some data to prevent re-registration.

A-Way Courier reserves the right to terminate accounts without notice if not used for a period of time.

Updating Your Personal Information

You can always (i) delete your personal information from our systems, and
(ii) update the personal information that you have provided to us.

We may make changes to our privacy policy affecting the use of the personal information we collect. You should check this posted privacy statement for any future changes. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy or any revised policy, please do not use this site and exit immediately.
