What information does ChoiceTaxi capture about visitors to its web site?
The ChoiceTaxi web server uses an extended log file format which captures: date and time of visit, referring address (location from which a visitor comes to ChoiceTaxi), type of Internet browser, and visitor's IP address. (Each computer that connects to the Internet is assigned a unique number, an IP address, for identification purposes). The log file does not capture a visitor's email address.
Does ChoiceTaxi ask for personal information?
Several areas of ChoiceTaxi ask for personal information. This list may be expanded without notice. In the event that it is expanded, additional information may be required. In these areas, your name, address, email address, billing information, and business profile are requested. This information is collected to help us further develop our services, to provide you access to valuable ChoiceTaxi Internet-based information and services, and to bill you for those services if you elect to use them.
How does ChoiceTaxi use the information?
The information collected through this site helps us identify the type of web site content our customers value most. We use this information to market and improve the web site and our services. We also use this information to send you email notifications about updates to the web site, and to contact you by other means for marketing and other purposes. Our policy is to not give, sell or otherwise distribute the information collected through this site to third parties outside of ChoiceTaxi, its parent company and its subsidiaries (unless required by law); provided, however, in some cases we may use suppliers to assist us in collecting, using or otherwise processing for our benefit the information obtained through this site. Our practice is to require our suppliers to conduct such activities consistent with this policy and our requirements.
What happens when I leave ChoiceTaxi to visit a ChoiceTaxi linked web site?
Parts of ChoiceTaxi consist of products and services hosted by third-party businesses. When you leave ChoiceTaxi to visit one of these sites, the only information transferred to the third-party is the fact that you came from ChoiceTaxi (the referring address). This practice allows the third-party to monitor its own web site traffic, but does not provide them with any information about you. ChoiceTaxi is not responsible or liable for the independent privacy policies of our third-party sites. You should consult the privacy policies at those sites to determine how your information may be used.
