You provide us with certain identifying information when you submit a customer inquiry, either online or through other means, when you complete a “Contact Us” form on our website, when you register to receive our news bulletins or business announcements, or when you interact with our business representatives. If you contact our customer support on the telephone, we may collect User Information from you during your call to provide our Services to you. If you do not want us to collect this information, please do not provide it, but you may not be able to take advantage of our Services or certain features of our Services. For example, where we need to collect information to provide Services to you and you fail to provide that information when requested, we may not be able to provide the Services. Examples of information we directly collect from you include:  

User information. “User Information” means information collected about users of the Services and includes names and contact information, such as email address, telephone number, associated companies or businesses, job title, street address, city, state/province, zip code, and any other information you provide.

User information also includes information that you provide to us to make purchases, such as payment information, identifiers, and delivery address. If you contact our customer support, the User Information we collect may also include recordings of your communications with customer support.

Business Account Contact Information. This means business contact information that is very similar to or might be the same as User Information, such as name, title, job function, business name, business address, business e-mail address, and business phone number that we collect about people we serve or work with, including actual and prospective customers, alliance and channel partners, contractors, vendors and other parties interested in our business and Services.

This includes how often the Services are used, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data, any exceptions that occur within the software and the source from which the application was downloaded. We identify user location through IP address in attempt to ensure availability of appropriate language translation services for our website.

We use your personal information for a number of purposes that we believe to be consistent with your expectations when you interact with us and our Services:

7. “Do Not Track Requests.”

Your web browser and mobile device may allow you to adjust your browser settings so that “do not track” (“DNT”) requests are sent to the websites you visit. Kentucky Trailer respects your wishes and will not track user activity once DNT signals have been activated.

Transfer or Assignment in Connection with Business Transfers or Bankruptcy. In the event of a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of our assets, any information owned or controlled by us may be one of the assets transferred to third parties. Kentucky Trailer may provide notice of such a business transition via prominent notice on our Website(s). We reserve the right, as part of this type of transaction, to transfer or assign your information and other information we have collected from customers and users of the Services to third parties. Other than to the extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court, or as otherwise agreed to by you, the use and disclosure of all transferred information will be subject to this Policy.

We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also, remember to sign out of the Service and close your browser window, your software, application or other Service when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your information and correspondence when accessing your computer.

Any sharing of your information with third-party processors who are operating at our instruction will be made in accordance with applicable data protection laws. These third-party processors will be required to comply with appropriate security and breach notification measures to protect your information.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

If you delete any of your Kentucky Trailer account information, we may retain certain information if required by law or for legitimate business purposes or to complete our contractual obligations to you.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that your information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

We will attempt to respond to any request to access your information within 45 days. It may take us longer if your request is complex or you have made multiple requests. In such circumstances we will notify you and keep you apprised of our progress.

13. California Residents’ Rights under the CCPA

A. We Do Not Sell Personal Information

As explained above, we do not sell your information to third parties. We provide personal information collected from customers under strict restrictions to our customer resource management service provider and our payment processor. Our service providers are restricted from making use of customer information outside of providing services to us.

B. California Residents’ Rights of Access to Specific Information.

California residents have the right to request that we disclose certain information to them about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Consumer Rights, below), we will disclose to you:

C. Deletion Request Rights

California residents have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collect from them, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Consumer Rights, below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

D. The Right to Opt-Out – The Right to Stop the Sale of Personal Information

California residents have the right to opt out of any sale of your information to a third party, i.e., to prevent a transfer of information to a third party that is not restricted in certain ways from making use of the information. But as we explained above, we do not sell your information.

E. Exercising Consumer Rights

To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by one of the following methods:

We are in the process of developing the functionality for customers to submit requests via an interactive web form or through accounts established with us.

Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.

To verify the identity of an individual making a request, a two-step process will need to be completed. A verifiable consumer request must:

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

F. Response Timing and Format

We will endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will cover only the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

G. Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value and contain written terms that describe the program’s material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt in consent, which you may revoke at any time. However, we do not currently provide any financial incentives.

H. Shine the Light Disclosure

We have not shared any personal information with other companies for their direct marketing use within the immediately preceding calendar year. Accordingly, California’s “Shine the Light” law, Cal. Civil Code § 1798.83 to § 1798.84, does not apply to us and we have not established any mechanism for you to request information on our sharing of information for third parties’ marketing purposes.

14. Use by Children

We do not knowingly process personal information for which we determine the purposes and means of processing about children under the age of 13 without advance parental consent. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 13 years of age and believe that your child has directly disclosed information to us, then please contact us so that we may delete the child’s information.

15. Changes to this Policy

We review this policy at least annually and reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so we encourage you to review it frequently. If we make a material change to this Policy, we will note any updates to this Policy prior to the changes taking effect and post any modifications or changes to the Policy on our Website(s). It is your responsibility to keep current your contact information that we have on file. If you continue to use our Website(s) after we updated this Policy, we understand this to mean that you are agreeing to the processing of personal information as described in the updated Policy.
