Last Updated: October 13, 2017

Thank you for visiting the Averitt Express, Inc. (“Averitt Express”) Website (the “Site”). Electronic privacy rights and protecting your privacy are important to Averitt Express. This Privacy Policy describes how Averitt Express collects, uses, and safeguards the personal information you may provide on our Site. Please note that this Privacy Policy, in addition to the Site’s Terms of Use, governs your use of the Site. If you do not consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, please do not access or use the Site.

INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE

Information You Provide

At times we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, such as your email address, for purposes such as corresponding with us or applying for a job. If provided to us, we may use this information to contact you with information about Averitt’s capabilities and services, via e-mail, postal mail or personal visit by a transportation specialist.

Users that receive this information via electronic mail will have the option to unsubscribe from this type of communication in accordance with legal requirements.

Automatic Collection and Cookies

Web users have the right to browse the Site anonymously. Simply browsing the Site does not pass any of your personal information to Averitt.

Like many other Websites, the Site may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the Site. Cookies are small text files that websites can send to your browser for storage on your computer. Cookies make your internet use easier by saving your status and preferences about a website.

These cookies may be used anonymously to document analytics about pages visited on our Site for statistical usage. Additionally, if your activity on the Site is initiated by clicking on a link from a marketing email or if you have submitted a form on the Site in order to download digital materials, information about your activity and the pages you visit are collected so that we can more effectively display information to you that is relevant to your needs and interests. We have never and will never sell any of this data to third parties.

Most web browser software automatically accepts cookies, but you can change your browser settings to prevent that if you do not wish to store the information on your computer. How to turn off all cookies differs for each web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.) so you may wish to consult your browser's "Help" menu for additional information. Note that if you choose to turn off our cookies using the features of your web browser, it may prevent certain features of the Site for operating optimally for you. We do not link cookies to other personally identifiable information about you.

Online Tracking How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals

Online tracking is the collection of data about an individual’s Internet activity used to deliver targeted advertisements and for other purposes. Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If an online service elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the service may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including Averitt Express, do not take action to respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

Disclosure of Personal Information

Except as set out in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties. We may, however, disclose your personal information in the following limited circumstances:

  • We may share your personal information with service providers who help us with the operation of our business;
  • If and as necessary to protect the safety or security of the Site, to detect and prevent fraud or abusive behavior, or when otherwise required or permitted by law;
  • In the event that we sell, transfer or otherwise dispose of the business to an affiliate, successor, assign or other third party entity. Our successors and assigns may collect and use your information for substantially similar purposes as described in this Privacy Policy; or
  • With your consent.

SECURITY

Averitt Express is fully committed to data security. You should note that no Internet transmission is ever fully secure or error-free, which is why we make no warranties as to the security of any information that you submit electronically as this will be done at your own risk. However, we take precautions to help to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, theft, alteration, loss or misuse. Averitt takes appropriate steps to communicate our privacy policy and guidelines to all employees.
