While processing requests and other transactions at the Web site, Landstar software may record general statistical and tracking information, such as the date and time a CONTRACT CARRIER accesses the Web site, and the time spent using the Web site. The Landstar software transfers this information to Landstar's servers, and such information is used strictly and exclusively for internal resource management purposes, and for internal business evaluation purposes.
3.2. IP Addresses; Other
Landstar may automatically receive and record information in our server logs from your browser, including your IP address (the Internet address of your PC), your computer's name, the type and version of your web browser, referrer addresses and other generally-accepted log information. We may also record page views (hit counts) and other general statistical and tracking information, which will be aggregated with that of other users in order to understand how our Web site is being used.
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a Web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. Cookies can be used to provide you with a tailored user experience and to make it easier for you to use the Web site upon a future visit.

4. What We Do with Information We Collect and Use
Except as provided in this policy, we will not disclose your information to unaffiliated third parties without your express consent. There are, however, some limited circumstances (apart from those set out in Section 3) in which we may need to disclose personally identifiable information about a user, including, but not limited to, the circumstances set forth below:
4.1. Landstar Site Vendors.
We may employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf, such as maintaining the Web site, providing services related to the Site, collecting information, responding to and sending electronic mail, or other functions necessary to our business. We may need to share your information with these companies (collectively, "Site Vendors"). We will provide Site Vendors with only that information necessary to perform their functions, and we will not allow them to use your information for any other purpose.
4.2. Imminent Harm
Landstar will reveal your information, to the extent we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law. If we receive legal process calling for the disclosure of any of your personally identifiable information, we will attempt to notify you via the email address you supplied during registration within a reasonable amount of time before we respond to the request, unless such notification is not permitted.
4.4. Transfer of Site
Landstar shall be entitled to transfer to a third party information it collects, including any information in connection with a sale of all, or substantially, all of the assets of the business entity responsible for the information under this Policy.
We have put in place security systems designed to prevent unauthorized disclosure of information you provide to us. These systems are structured to deter and prevent hackers and others from accessing this information. Due to the nature of Internet communications and evolving technologies, however, we cannot provide, and disclaim, assurance that the information you provide us will remain free from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties who, despite our efforts, obtain unauthorized access.
The Web site is not designed for persons under the age of 18, and Landstar does not knowingly collect, either online or offline, personally identifiable information from persons under the age of 18. If we learn that a child under 18 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete this information from our databases.
