3. Information We Collect and How We Use It
LogisticsPortal.org collects certain information from and about its users three ways: directly from our Web Server logs, the User, and with Cookies.
Web Server Logs.

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.
LogisticsPortal.org reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into LogisticsPortal.org a site that relies on third-party cookies).
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 our Website.

Personal Information Users
Visitors to our website can register to purchase services or listings in our Directories. When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. If you are purchasing a service, we will request financial information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting or account verification.
We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except as noted to the extent necessary including:

4. Use of Web Beacons or Gif Files
LogisticsPortal.org Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow LogisticsPortal.org to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. LogisticsPortal.org may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. LogisticsPortal.org prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
5. Accessing Web Account Information
We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant info@LogisticsPortal.org
6. Identity Theft / Fraud
Identity Theft occurs when someone uses sensitive information, called Personally Identifiable Information (or PII) of another person without their permission to commit fraud or other crimes, such as Account Takeover or Application Fraud. [Account Takeover is when an individual acquires another person's existing credit account information and purchases products and services at the victim's expense. Application Fraud is when an individual uses another's Social Security Number or other Personally Identifiable Information to open new credit accounts in the victim's name.]
If you believe you are a victim of Identity Theft, contact the three major credit bureaus to place a fraud alert message on your credit file. When you place a fraud alert on your file, the credit reporting agencies will send you a copy of your credit report at no charge.
Carefully review your credit reports for: accounts you did not open, inquiries from creditors you did not initiate, and for personal information (such as home address and social security number) that is not accurate. If you see anything you do not understand or any accounts you did not open, call the credit reporting agency at the telephone number on the report.
To learn more about identity theft, visit the Federal Trade Commission's web site to receive further information and insights about how to protect your identity from identity thieves.
