Using and storing your information
When you supply any information to The Freight, we have legal obligations towards you in the way we use this data. We must collect the information fairly, that is, we must explain how we will use it and tell you if we want to pass the information on to anyone else.
In general, any information you provide to The Freight will be held and processed for our internal business purposes. We do not pass on or sell online information to third parties. We will, however, disclose such information where we are obliged or permitted by law to do so.
If you are notified on thefreight.net site that your information may be used to allow us to contact you for ‘service administration purposes’, this means that we may contact you for some purposes related to the service you have signed up for. For example, we may wish to provide you with password reminders or notify you that a particular service has been suspended for maintenance. We will not contact you for promotional purposes unless you specifically agree to be contacted for such purposes at the time you submit your information on the site, or at a later time if you sign up specifically to receive this promotional information.
We will hold your information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it if the purpose has been met or, in the case of a registered service, you no longer wish to continue your membership.
We may share information within our organization, and in some cases, it will be necessary to pass the information on to our employees, agents, contractors, and subcontractors. By sending your information to us, you explicitly consent to the processing and transfer of information in this way.
Given the global nature of The Freight’s business, we may need to transmit your information to other members of The Freight which may involve the cross-border transfer of your information. We have taken the steps outlined in this notice to improve the security of your information, but please note that by sending your information to us you explicitly consent to the cross-border transfer of such information.
We will make sure that all information supplied is held securely, by the Data Protection Act 1998.
We are willing, on written request from you, to provide details of any information which you have provided us with (this may be at a small charge) and/or stop using your information for the purposes described above. We may ask for proof of identity from you before disclosing this information. This is to safeguard the security of your information.
We are committed to protecting your privacy. Before providing us with any of your details, please read the following information, which explains our policy regarding the information we collect about you.
