CONVOY – PRIVACY NOTICEEffective Date: April 25, 2021
Convoy, Inc. (“Convoy”) provides an online and mobile platform to connect Shippers with Carriers for the transportation of cargo. Shippers can submit a request for the transportation of cargo (“Shipment”), Carriers can accept such requests and assign Drivers to fulfill them, and Shippers, Carriers, and Drivers (as applicable, “you” or “your”) can track such requests. To provide Services, Convoy collects and processes various categories of data. This Privacy Notice describes how Convoy (“we” or “us”or“our”) collects, uses, and discloses information when you use our websites, mobile applications, and other online products and services (collectively, the “Services”) or when you otherwise interact with us.
We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the Effective Date at the top of this Privacy Notice, and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you a notification on our mobile app or via email). We encourage you to review this Privacy Notice whenever you access the Services or otherwise interact with us to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.
We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you fill out a form, request to be a Carrier, Shipper, or Partner, log in to your Convoy account, submit or accept a Shipment request, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us. This information may include name, company name, email address, phone number, address, financial information, video and call recordings, insurance information, service ratings and reviews, and any other information you choose to provide.
When you use the Services, we collect additional information about Shipment requests and how they are fulfilled, including the following:
Shippers: If you are a Shipper and submit a Shipment request, we collect certain details related to your submission, including the date and time of your request, origin and destination addresses, description of the cargo being transported, rate, and other information about the Shipment.
Carriers: If you are a Carrier, we collect information on your bids on Shipment requests as well as information about your lane preference, acceptance, and fulfillment of any Shipment requests, including financial, vehicle, and driver information.
Drivers: If you are a driver transporting cargo on behalf of a Carrier, we may collect information on your travel to fulfill a Shipment request. We also collect information about your location and about documents you upload, as described below.
Partners: If you are a broker, intermediary, or other third party partnering with Convoy (“Partner”), we may collect information on any Shipment request, origin and destination information, customer information, description of the cargo being transported, rate, email addresses, and any other information you choose to provide.
Providing Services to our users requires the collection of precise location information. When you download or use our mobile applications, we may ask for permission to access your precise location. If you grant our mobile applications permission to access your location through the permission system used by your mobile operating system, we will collect the precise location of your mobile device. We use this information to track Shipments, understand your typical driving patterns, and to potentially offer Carriers jobs that are more likely to be relevant to them and their Drivers. You may deny or revoke your permission at any time but doing so may affect your ability to utilize all features of our Services or Incentive Programs, including your eligibility for QuickPay or your ability to recover incidental fees.
We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address or phone number. We may also receive information about your location from third parties, such as the Shippers and Carriers involved in fulfilling any Shipment request, or from sensors installed on trailers owned, leased, or controlled by Convoy.
Our Services may ask you to photograph and upload to the Services certain documents related to the fulfillment of a Shipment request, such as certificates of insurance and other legal documents, bills of lading, and proofs of delivery. You may also be able to upload pictures of cargo that you carry and/or trailers owned, leased, or controlled by Convoy. To do this, our mobile applications will request access to the camera on your mobile device via the permission system used by your mobile operating system. You may deny the requested access but doing so may affect your ability to utilize all features of our Services.
When you access or use our Services, we automatically collect information about you, including:

We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect from you directly.

We use the information we collect in order to provide and improve our Services, including to connect Shippers with Carriers, match Drivers with Shipment requests, facilitate transportation of cargo, process payments, and confirm delivery.
