Information Collection and Use
You can visit www.transchicago.com without revealing any personal information. Our servers collect general information about each visit to evaluate and improve our Website. We do not automatically collect information from site visits that is personally identifiable (such as email addresses), and we do not attempt to link the information our servers collect to individual visitors.
When you voluntarily supply information, we use it for the purposes for which you give it to us. Where we request personal information, our online forms indicate the purposes for which we intend to use your personal information, and we will use the personal information you provide only for those purposes. If you click Contact Us and provide us with personal information, we use the personal information to analyze and properly respond to your comments. Similarly, if you send an inquiry via email, they will use the information you provide in the email to analyze and respond to your email.
If you do not express a preference in an online form, email or other communication with us, we may include you on mailing lists for our products and services (including products and services of our affiliates or their advertisers or sponsors) if we believe you might find this information interesting or useful. If you would prefer not to be included on our lists, please advise us at the time you submit the online form, email or other communication.
Even though we strive to protect your personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. Minors should not submit personal information without the consent of their parent or guardian. However, there is no way for us to prevent minors from voluntarily furnishing us this information.
Please Contact Us if you have any questions regarding personal information that your minor children may have provided us.
Employees, contractors and affiliates of Company as well as service providers for the purpose of providing services for us, will have access to the personal information we collect online if they require this information in order to perform their jobs, provide the applicable service or respond to questions or comments you send us. We have established practices aimed at protecting the information we collect online or receive via email from unauthorized access.
There are also circumstances in which we will share personal information with one of the manufacturers we represent or our affiliates. If you would prefer that we not furnish your information in this manner, please advise us in advance. You should be aware, however, that this type of instruction might impair our ability to properly respond to you or process the information you provide.
We do not distribute, sell, trade or license any information collected or received online, including email lists.
Please note, however, that we set cookies and other similar technologies only for Company use, and not for manufacturers we represent, sponsors or others. Third parties may also place cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, log files and other similar technologies on your computer or device when you visit our Website, and you may also receive cookies from these other parties by virtue of accessing their web sites - we do not control any of these third-party cookies or other technologies.
You have the option of refusing to accept cookies by changing your browser preferences, activating the appropriate settings on your mobile device or using commercially available software. However, if you refuse the cookies from this Website, you may find that some services do not function properly.
We collect information about your activities on our Website over time, and we associate this information with you personally or your device for purposes of enabling and administering the functionality of the Website for you and for sending you communications (which could include advertising for goods and services available from or through us, including products and services offered by third parties). We also use such information for internal analytical purposes. Other than for the purpose of enabling the delivery of advertising directly to you through the operation of our Website, to the extent we ever provide any such information to third parties, it will be in aggregated form and will not be associated with you personally.
Now and in the future there may be laws that apply to the use of Websites for behavioral or location-based tracking. The web browser you use may even have a "do not track" (or similar) setting. We, however, have not adopted processes to address those settings or other "do not track" requests, and consequently, do not limit or block your access to and use of our Website.
In all cases, it is our intent to fully comply with "do not track" laws to the extent they are applicable to us and to our Website and Application.
This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of information that does not identify you and that is not considered "personally identifiable" pursuant to applicable law. We may use information from which your personally identifiable information has been removed or obscured for any purpose, in aggregate form or otherwise. We collect and use such information for a variety of purposes and may provide such information to third parties without restriction.
This policy only applies to www.transchicago.com. As described above, we may share information obtained from www.transchicago.com with our affiliates or other third parties. While we expect that these affiliates or others will respect your privacy in a manner consistent with our policies, we cannot guarantee that they will do so.
We provide you with an opportunity to complete and print a credit application on the Website. By submitting your credit application, you have consented for Company or one or more lending institutions to investigate your credit and employment history as described in detail at the bottom of such credit applications.
When you submit a credit application to Company, Company and lending institutions may collect nonpublic personal information about you from your credit applications, other forms you provide, details regarding your prior transactions with the party collecting such information, and consumer reporting agencies.
