4.  Cookies 


We use ‘cookie’ and ‘web beacon’ technologies on our Sites and the Platform. We use cookies and web beacons to distinguish you from other Site visitors, to track your IP address and your usage of our Site(s), and to identify the name of the web site from which you linked to our Site. This information is used to help us serve you better by improving our website design, as well as the functionality of our Sites and services. 


We do not otherwise track any information about your use of other websites. Non-Personally Identifiable Information obtained through cookies and web beacons may be shared with or obtained by service providers on our behalf.


A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A "session cookie" expires immediately when you end your session (i.e. you close your browser). A "persistent cookie" stores information on the hard drive so that, when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. A web beacon is a small string of code that implements a clear graphic image in a certain location on a Site, and such beacons are used in conjunction with a cookie.


When you visit our Sites we may use both session and persistent cookies. Session cookies may collect information (such as a unique user ID) that is used to track your usage of our Sites. And in some cases, in addition to the information collected by a session cookie, a persistent cookie may also save your email address (but only if you register with us in order to use Logistics Services or to gain access to the RavenEye Platform). A web beacon can further help us to collect capture certain additional information about a visitor's actions on a web site, such as a visitor's cookie number, the time, date, duration and number of page views, a description of the page where the web beacon is placed, and details about any Site actions that are taken (e.g. registration).


You can disable all cookies at any time by using your browser options; however, if you turn off cookies, we may not be able to track your shipment(s) or enable other features of our website. In addition, we will not be able to recognize you as a registered user to allow you access to your account information.

We share data with our Third Party Service Providers on the basis of our users’ consent and our legitimate interests in operating our business. Your acceptance of the terms of this Policy shall also be deemed to be your agreement to the sharing of personal information with our Third Party Service Providers.
