Personal Information

Surplus Freight does not collect any personally identifiable information about you except for the information that you provide to us in order to establish your account, including name, shipping address, billing address, phone number, and email. We receive, store and use this information to help us communicate with you, respond to your requests and improve the content and services that Surplus Freight has available. We do not collect and save your credit card number and credit card expiration date when processing an order.

Information tracked automatically is generic and doesn't include any personal details

When you log onto the internet, you are assigned an IP (Internet Protocol) address. Some providers assign you a permanent or "static " IP address, but most use temporary ones. This helps assure your privacy, because it’s difficult - if not impossible - to collect personal information about you via a temporary address.

Our website keeps a general list of visitors' IP addresses. This gives us broad, generic information such as how many Spectrum users log onto the Surplus Freight website and helps us maintain compatibility with many different Internet providers.

Surplus Freight records browser types (like Google Chrome) and versions so we can tell what features our visitors can make use of and helps us keep our website up to date.

We record how many people visited each page on our website. This helps us improve website navigation, so customers can find products faster and easier.

When you access SurplusFreight.com, we may collect and store device sign-on data (including device ID) and geolocation data in order to improve our location services. We may also record which website or search engine referred you to SurplusFreight.com. This information helps us improve our location services by ensuring our website remains compatible with more browsers and systems.

At any point while you're browsing, you can place an item in your Shopping Cart. When you're done browsing, you can review your Shopping Cart. If you want to place an order, indicate the item(s) you wish to order and click the Proceed to Checkout button. Enter your information, including name, address, and preferred contact time/method in case we need to get in touch with you about your order.

The next screen gives you a summary for the item(s) you're ordering, including price and applicable sales tax. You also confirm your billing information and store pick up location.

The Place Order button then displays options for payment: You can enter credit card information here.

What does Surplus Freight do with this information?

Surplus Freight has an absolute commitment to keep your information secure. The information you share with us is used to fulfill your order and to keep you up-to-date on the status of your order. After you place an order, we'll contact you with information about the order as needed.

The financial institutions processing your payment may send us supplemental information if there is a problem in completing the transaction. This information is used only in processing your order(s) from our website.

Information about your browser helps us improve the way our website appears on your computer and makes sure our website is up to date and compatible with your system.

Among other reasons why we use cookies, cookies allow you to enter your password less frequently during a session. Cookies can also help us provide information which is targeted to your interests or service needs. Cookies are stored on your hard drive, not on our website. Most cookies are “session cookies,” meaning that they are automatically deleted at the end of a session.

Security

Surplus Freight uses industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls, system security measures and Secure Socket Layers (SSL).

The registration pages, where you enter your personal and credit card information, are secure. This means that any information you send us is protected by encryption. It is easy to tell when you are protected by encryption – your browser displays a lock or a key which is no longer broken or it changes color when you are on a secure page.

If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personally identifiable information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf.
