A. Description of Service
When using project44s Services, project44 will request your permission to obtain your location using your mobile phone in order to offer load location and ETA information to the product shipper, broker and/or carrier. You will never be located without your consent and opt-in is via a network initiated SMS opt-in process. A message will be delivered to you from the SMS short code 84787 and you must reply “yes” to confirm your consent for location.
Supported carriers include AT&T, Boost, Metro PCS, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Verizon Wireless and Virgin.
If you did not receive an opt-in request text message or you texted the word “YES” to the Short Code number 84787 and did not receive a response, it’s likely that your mobile phone carrier is blocking text messages from Short Codes. Short codes are non-standard phone numbers, and may also be known as Promotional Codes or Computer Generated Codes.
To fix this challenge, contact your mobile phone provider and ask that they enable your account to receive text messages from Short Codes. Make sure to inquire how long it will take for the change to be effective and to receive a text message.
B. Opting Out
You may opt out of load tracking by your mobile phone by replying “STOP” to 84787 or by calling toll free 312-300-7952 to opt-out. Also, an opt-out will be automatically triggered after completion of the load.
Message and data rates may apply. Reply HELP to 84787 for help. Reply STOP to 84787 to cancel. You will receive up to 3 messages per load.
C. Protecting your Privacy
Your location information will only be captured during the transportation of the load you are under contract to carry. You will be automatically opted out after 4 hours of the load delivery appointment, or after 48 hours from load pickup, if no delivery appointment information is provided. No location tracking duration shall exceed 5 days. After 5 days, you’ll automatically be opted out.
D. Data Security
We’ve implemented technology and security features and strict policy guidelines to safeguard the privacy of your location information, including:
- Maintaining and protecting the security of computer storage and network equipment;
- Security procedures that require user names and passwords to access sensitive data;
- Applying encryption or other appropriate security controls to protect location information when stored or transmitted by us;
- Limiting access to location information to only those with jobs requiring such access.
Although we strive to keep your location information secure, no security measures are perfect, and we cannot guarantee that your location information will never be disclosed in violation of these terms (for example, as the result of unauthorized acts by third parties that violate the law).
E. Sharing of Information
Your mobile number, approximate location, and time of location will only be shared with the parties to the Transportation Agreement associated with the load being transported. Project44 will never share your mobile number with any third party. However, project44 has no responsibility, control, or liability for any violations of privacy laws, regulations or common law, nor does project44 have any control over the retention and security of the data obtained thru this process that is obtained by the vendor (LocationSmart) or shared with a party to the associated Transportation Agreement.
