Information that We Automatically Gather
When you browse the Site, you and your Internet browser may also transmit information that we automatically collect. We may log your internet service provider and IP address (the internet address of your computer), the web pages you visit and the date and time of your visit, domain names, landing pages, the number of pages viewed and the order of your review of those pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, the state or country from which you accessed the Site, and other click-stream data. This information may be combined with other personal information you have provided. Other types of information automatically provided to us include the type of computer, operating system and browser you are using. This information is provided by your Internet browser, which we may use to improve the performance of the Site. We also may use “cookies” to personalize or enhance your user experience. A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on the Site. When you use the Site, we may employ “clear GIFs” (a.k.a., web beacons) which are used to track the online usage patterns of our users anonymously (i.e., in a non-personally-identifiable manner). In addition, we may also use clear GIFs in HTML-based emails sent to our users to track which emails are opened by recipients. We may also prepare and keep statistical records and other data about you and other users of the Site, but we do that in a way that does not identify you or any other user personally. We may hire third parties to help us collect and analyze such data, and we may share such statistical data with third parties.
Third-party distribution of information
It is not our practice or policy to share your information with an outside organization or company. Only in those instances where we have written authorization from you to release information to an agent acting on your behalf will we do so.
Distribution of information within Summers Trucking

In addition, individual data will be aggregated and analyzed in order to understand customer trends and requirements so that we can continue to provide a service that is reliable, responsive, and efficient.
