If you provide information to us about another person, you should ensure that you comply with any legal obligations that may apply to your provision of the information to us.

C. Information we obtain by automated means

When you visit the Link Website, we may collect certain information by automated means (such as by cookies, web server logs, web beacons and JavaScript).  The information we collect in this manner includes your IP address, network location, browser characteristics, browser language, device characteristics, operating system, referring URLs, information on actions taken on the Link Website, and dates and times of website visits.  We may use cookies and similar technology on the Link Website and in emails we send you to collect certain information, such as whether you opened or clicked on links in our emails.

Cookies. Cookies are files that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings on your device.  The Link Website may use cookies (such as HTTP, HTML5 and Flash cookies) as well as other types of local storage (such as browser-based or plugin-based local storage).

We use different types of first and third-party cookies on the Link Website for several reasons. First-party cookies are those that we place on your device through the Link Website; third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your device through the Link Website.

We use cookies:

  • To track user trends and patterns: This helps us better understand and improve areas of Link Services that our users find valuable.
  • To provide you with personalized content: (your user preferences, your default language, device and browser information so we can identify you across devices and personalize the content you see).
  • To provide social media features and to analyze our traffic: We also share information about your use of the Link Website with our social media and analytics partners. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our Clients’ and Visitors’ needs.

We use five types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, marketing cookies, and website analytics cookies.

  • Strictly necessary cookies
    Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Link Website and use its features. These are temporary cookies that last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for purposes such as enabling better navigation on our website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.
  • Performance cookies
    Performance cookies are stored on your device for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our website services and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore made anonymous. These cookies are used to improve the performance of the Links website, and with it, the user experience.
  • Functional cookies
    Functional cookies enable the website to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, language choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request, such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
  • Marketing cookies
    Link and third parties acting on our behalf (such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) may collect information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your interests. 
  • Website analytics cookies
    We use third-party web analytics services on the Link Website such as Google Analytics. These service providers help us analyze how visitors use the Link Website. The information obtained for this purpose (including your IP address and other information collected by automated means) may be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To provide this service, Google Analytics may collect certain information about you from your computer, including through the use of cookies. Such information may include information regarding your visit (such as the pages you visit and the length of your visit), information about your device (such as your IP address), how you got to the Website, and other information about you. You can learn more about Google Analytics and how it collects and processes data (including how to control the information sent to Google) by visiting: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ You can opt-out of Google Analytics by using the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available here.

For more information on the cookies we use and how you can manage them, please access our Preference Center, or adjust the settings on your browser. Please note that if you disable functional cookies on your browser, some parts of the Link Website may not work fully.

Other tracking devices
In conjunction with gathering information through cookies, our web servers may log information such as your device type, operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your device is located. We also may record information such as the address of the web page that referred you to the Link Website and the IP address of the device you used to connect to the Link Website. We may log information about your interaction with the Link Website, such as which pages you visit. To control which web servers collect information by automated means, we may place tags on our web pages called “web beacons”, which are small files that link web pages to particular web servers and their cookies. We also may send instructions to your device using JavaScript or other computer languages to gather the sorts of information described above and other details about your interactions with the Link Website.

Cross-device tracking
Link uses data analytics companies, advertising networks, or social media companies, and the features they offer, to engage in “cross-device tracking,” which occurs when platforms, publishers, and advertising technology companies try to connect a consumer's activity across smartphones, tablets, desktop computers, and other connected devices. The goal of cross-device tracking is to enable companies to link a consumer’s behavior across devices.

II. How Link uses the collected information

Link may use, disclose or otherwise handle the information described in this Privacy Policy for the following purposes to:

  • provide Visitors with access to the Link Website;
  • improve the Link Website, including statistical analysis of the Link Website;
  • customize Visitors’ experience on the Link Website;
  • deliver content tailored to Visitors’ interest and the manner in which Visitors browse the Link Website;
  • manage the Link Website;
  • operate, evaluate, and improve Link Services;
  • process Clients’ purchases and transactions;
  • respond to Visitors’ and Clients’ inquiries;
  • for our information technology or security purposes;
  • debug to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality on the Link Website;
  • detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, and prosecute those responsible for that activity;
  • comply with applicable laws and regulatory requirements, or as requested by the government or regulatory authorities;
  • facilitate a merger, divestiture, acquisition, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which Personal Information held by us is among the assets transferred.

Link may also use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.

III. Information that Link discloses to others

Link does not disclose Personal Information we obtain about you through the Link Website except as described in this Privacy Policy. Although we do not authorize these persons to use or disclose the information except as necessary for the purposes for which it is provided or to comply with legal requirements, we may share your Personal Information with the following parties:

  • our affiliates;
  • service providers who perform services on our behalf (including cloud services), depending on the nature of our relationship with you;
  • our financial and transaction counterparties;
  • our professional advisors; and

Link also may disclose information about you in the following contexts:

  • if we are required to do so by law or legal process,
  • to law enforcement authorities, regulators and/or other government entities and/or other competent authorities based on a lawful disclosure request, or
  • when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer Personal Information we have about you or otherwise process in the event that we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets (including in the event of a reorganization, spin-off, dissolution or liquidation).  In addition, Link may share anonymous/aggregated information with third parties, such as service providers, in order to facilitate our business operations.

IV. How we protect Personal Information

Link maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect Personal Information we obtain through the Link Website against accidental, unlawful, or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use.  However, neither individuals nor security systems are foolproof, and the transmission of information via the Internet is also not completely secure. As a result, while Link uses reasonable security measures to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Please contact opsdistribution@linklogistics.com if you become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of the Link Website or Link Services, or the information collected and maintained in relation to them.

Where Link has given you or allowed you to choose a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Link Website or Link Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential and for complying with any other security procedures of which we notify you or which you believe are reasonable.  We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

V. International Transfers

To facilitate Link’s global operations, Link may store, transfer, and access the Personal Information that you submit on the Link Website to Link’s offices or third party service providers around the world, including the United States, Canada and other countries. This Privacy Policy shall apply even if Link transfers such information to other countries. By using the Link Website and providing any information through the Link Website, you consent to the transfer of your information and Personal Information among the facilities in these countries, including those located outside your home country. Do not use the Link Website if you do not want your Personal Information to be transferred to the United States or to other countries, or if the laws in your country restrict these types of transfers.

VI. Retention and deletion of your information

We will retain your information in line with our retention policies and, in any event, for no longer than is necessary given the purpose for which it was collected.

Note that we may retain some limited information about you so that we can maintain a continuous relationship with you if and when we are in contact with you again. You can opt out of receiving marketing information or contact us to delete your contact details at any time.
