California Privacy Notice
Last Updated: December 2, 2022
The Scheduling Standards Consortium (the “Consortium”), which as of the date above consists of Convoy, Inc., J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc., and Uber Freight LLC, takes your privacy seriously. We want you to know how we collect, use, disclose, and protect your Personal Information (defined below) and about the rights of California Consumers (defined below) under California law.
The Scope of This Privacy Notice
“Personal Information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular California Consumer or household. This California Privacy Notice applies to the Personal Information of residents of the State of California in their capacity as consumers (“California Consumers”).
This Privacy Notice applies to all Personal Information of California Consumers that we collect through visits to this website, www.FreightAPIs.org (the “Site”), and Personal Information that you submit to us via the online fillable webform on the Site.
How the Consortium Will Handle Your Personal Information
The Consortium has not collected any Personal Information about you through the Site during the 12 months preceding the date of this notice.
The Consortium collects Personal Information you choose to submit through a webform that is available on the Site. The webform asks you to provide identifiers, including your first and last name, your company name, and your work email address. You may also provide your business type (e.g., shipper, carrier, broker) through the webform. The Consortium will use the information that you submit to send you information and news about the Consortium and its endeavors to simplify the integration of systems between shippers, carriers, and intermediaries. The Consortium will retain your Personal Information for 18 months from the date that you submit it.
How the Consortium Handles Cookies
The Consortium will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties other than third-party service providers under contract with us to help us provide services to you. We may, for example, retain a third party to help us determine what marketing information you might find useful. We may also disclose your Personal Information to an attorney in the process of obtaining legal advice. We require any such third-party service providers to provide safeguards for your Personal Information similar to the ones that we provide.
The Consortium does not and will not sell or “share” (i.e., disclose to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising) any of the Personal Information of California Consumers.
Minors Under 16 Years of Age
We respect the privacy of children. The Site is not designed to attract an audience younger than sixteen (16), and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under sixteen (16). If you are under the age of sixteen (16), you are not permitted to use our Site and should not submit any information about yourself to us through the Site. Please contact us using the contact details below if you believe we may have collected information from your child under the age of sixteen (16), and we will work to delete it.
Your California Privacy Rights
Right to Know
California Consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request to know:
- The categories and specific pieces of Personal Information that the Consortium has collected about them;
- The categories of sources from which the Consortium collected the Personal Information;
- The categories of Personal Information, if any, that the Consortium sold or disclosed to a third party (other than a service provider) for a business purpose and the categories of recipients of that information; and
- The business or commercial purposes for the Consortium’s collection, disclosure, or sale of the Personal Information.
Right to Delete
- California Consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request for deletion of their Personal Information that the Consortium has collected from the Consumer.
Right to Opt Out of Sale of Personal Information
- California Consumers have a right to opt out of the sale of their Personal Information. However, as stated above, the Consortium does not and will not sell Personal Information.
Right to Correct
- California Consumers have the right to submit a verifiable request to correct inaccurate Personal Information maintained by the Consortium or on its behalf, taking into account the nature of the Personal Information and the purposes of processing the Personal Information.
How to Exercise Your Rights
The Consortium will respond to requests in accordance with applicable law if it can verify the identity of the individual submitting the request. California Consumers can exercise their rights in the following ways:
Requests by Authorized Agents
You may designate an authorized agent to exercise your rights by submitting to us a completed “Authorized Agent Designation” form. You can obtain the designation form by contacting us at dataprivacy@FreightAPIs.org.
If an authorized agent submits a request on your behalf, the authorized agent must submit with the request a document signed by you that authorizes the authorized agent to submit the request on your behalf. In addition, we may ask you to follow the applicable process described above for verifying your identity.
How We Will Verify Your Requests
The Consortium’s verification process will depend on the nature of your request as described below:
- Requests to Know Categories of Personal Information: We will match at least two data points that you provide with your request to know, or in response to our request for verification information, against information about you that we already have in our records and that we have determined to be reliable for purposes of verifying your identity. Examples of relevant data points include your company name and type of business.
- Requests to Know Specific Pieces of Personal Information: We will match at least three data points that you provide with your request to know, or in response to our request for verification information, against information that we already have about you in our records and that we have determined to be reliable for purposes of verifying your identity.
- Requests to Delete or Correct Personal Information: Our process for verifying your identity will depend on the sensitivity (as determined by the Consortium) of the Personal Information that you ask us to delete or correct. For less sensitive Personal Information, we will require a match of two data points as described in Point No. 1 (regarding requests to know categories of Personal Information), above. For more sensitive Personal Information, we will require a match of three data points as described in Point No. 2 (regarding requests to know specific pieces of Personal Information), above.
We have implemented the following additional procedures when verifying the identity of requestors:
- If we cannot verify your identity based on the processes described above, we may ask you for additional verification information. If we do so, we will permanently delete the verification information that you provide promptly after we have completed the verification process. We will not use that information for any purpose other than verification.
- If we cannot verify your identity to a sufficient level of certainty to respond to your request, we will let you know promptly and explain why we cannot verify your identity.
The Consortium’s Non-Discrimination Policy
California Consumers have the right not to be subject to discriminatory treatment by the Consortium for exercising their privacy rights under the California Privacy Rights Act, and the Consortium will not discriminate on that basis. However, the Consortium may charge a California Consumer a different price or rate or provide a different level or quality of goods or services if the difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the California Consumer by the Consumer’s Personal Information. If the Consortium does so, it will provide Consumers with any legally required notice.
Your Right to Information About Disclosures of Personal Information for Direct Marketing Purposes
Under California law, California Consumers may request information from us as to whether we have disclosed Personal Information to any third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We will not sell or disclose your Personal Information to third-party companies for their direct marketing purposes without your consent. California Consumers desiring to request further information about our compliance with these laws or who have questions or concerns about our privacy practices and policies are welcome to contact us using the contact information below.
