As described in more detail below, we may collect information when you provide it to us, indirectly through certain collection technologies, and from certain third parties.

Account Registration. The Platform and related services may require registration for access. As part of registration and related services, we ask you to provide us certain information about you.

Contacting Us. When you contact us, the email address and/or telephone number you use to communicate with us generally will be collected directly from you or from our phone system, and any additional information you provide may also be collected to respond to your inquiries. Your telephone call with our customer service and/or dispatch representatives may be recorded.

Information Collection Technologies
Server Information. Like most internet websites, Nautech’ servers automatically and temporarily store the following information in the server log files. This information is provided by your browser, unless you have deactivated the function.
IP address of the enquiring computer
File query by the client
Http response code
Internet page from which you visited us (referrer URL)
Browser type and version
Operating system used on the enquiring computer
The server log files are not analyzed with respect to individuals. At no time can this data be attributed to specific individuals.
A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver a virus and thus pose no threat to you. Servers and sites other than the one placing the cookie on your hard drive cannot read the cookie, and no personal information can be gathered by other servers from the cookie. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings. Please note that certain features of the Platform may not be available once cookies have been disabled.
Like most websites, the Platform gathers certain information automatically and stores it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, operating system, internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, date/time stamp of access, and clickstream data, and information about the content you view on the Platform. When you visit the Platform, the servers automatically log your IP address, the time and duration of your visit, and the time and duration spent on the pages of the Platform which you view. If you arrive at the Platform by clicking a paid advertisement or a link in a communication, then the server will capture information that tracks your visit from that link. If you arrive at the Platform by clicking on a non-paid source, such as a search engine result or link on another website, the server may capture information that tracks your visit from that source, to the extent available.
Some of Nautech’ communications to you may contain a “click-through URL” which links to content on the Platform. When you click one of these URLs, it passes information through the Nautech web server before you arrive at the destination web page. Nautech tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in emails you receive from Nautech.
Certain features of the Platform may use local stored objects (“Flash cookies”) to collect and store information about your preferences and navigation to, from, and on our website. Flash cookies are not managed by the same browser settings as are used for browser cookies.
Nautech additionally may use web beacons or pixel tags, which are tiny invisible graphic images, in the Platform. Web beacons and pixel tags may be used by Nautech to count users who have visited its webpages and for related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).
Smart Phones. If you use a smart phone to access the Platform, we may be provided with and collect device-specific information, including your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, phone number, and mobile network information. We may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your account information.
Information from Third Parties
We may receive personal information from other sources.
Social Media. If you connect your social media account(s) to your account, the social media site may share information with us about your use of their services, including information about your profile, contacts, and viewed or liked content. If you post publicly on social media sites, we may also collect that information. We encourage you to read the applicable privacy policies for your social media accounts. We have no responsibility for the data collection and use practices of those social media sites.
Third-Party Analytics. We may use third-party service providers (e.g., Google Analytics) to collect and analyze information about use of the Platform. We do not receive information from these service providers that can be used to specifically identify you.
Background and Credit Checks. If you are a job applicant, employee, or contractor, then, as permitted by applicable law, we may obtain background check and credit check information from a third party to evaluate your application or to ensure that you meet certain conditions of employment or eligibility to contract with Nautech.
Drug Screening. For certain employee and contractor positions and work assignments, we may require you to undergo drug screening prior to employment, prior to certain assignments, randomly, or upon reasonable suspicion. A third-party service provider performs these screenings on our behalf.
Use of Personal Information
Nautech and its service providers may use your personal information to provide our services and to contact you in response to inquiries you submit. Nautech and its service providers may use your information to manage our contractual relationship with you, because we have a legitimate interest to do so, and/or to comply with a legal obligation:

We do not sell your personal information; however, we may disclose your personal information and certain other information in connection with operating our business. Specifically:
Affiliated Transportation Service Providers. We may share your personal information (typically name, telephone number, pick-up address, drop-off location, and, if applicable, travel information) with our affiliates for the purpose of providing transportation services to you. The entities with which we share information may be located in the United States or other countries.

Business Transactions. In the event that Nautech or some of our assets are sold or transferred or used as security, or to the extent we engage in business negotiations with our business partners, certain personal information that we have collected and stored may be transferred or shared with third parties as part of that transaction or negotiation.
Legal Requirements. On rare occasions, we may disclose specific information without your consent and without notice to you as required to comply with laws and regulations, or to comply with court orders, subpoenas, or lawful discovery requests.

We may disclose your personal information if we believe it is necessary to protect Nautech and/or other third parties, including, for example, to assist in fraud protection or investigation.
Aggregated and De-Identified Information. Aggregated and de-identified information is not personal information because it cannot be attributed to any specific individual. We may disclose aggregated information without restriction. Nautech may disclose aggregated data in order to describe our services to current and prospective affiliates, and to other third parties for lawful purposes.
How Nautech Protects Your Personal Information
Nautech has implemented reasonable physical, technical, and organizational safeguards to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, acquisition, or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

Do Not Track
“Do Not Track” is a privacy setting that you may set in your web browsers. If turned on, this setting requests that websites not track information about users. At this time, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings or signals.
We retain personal information for as long as necessary to provide services to you and fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other necessary purposes such as complying with our legal obligations and enforcing our agreements. Retention periods vary depending on the type of information and how it is used. The criteria we use to determine the appropriate retention periods include:
How long we have a relationship with you and provide services or products to you.
Whether there is a legal, contractual or similar obligation that requires us to keep your information.
Whether you have consented to retention of your information for a longer period of time.
