By using The Road Authority website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

The Road Authority collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. The Road Authority also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postal code, ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by The Road Authority. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by The Road Authority for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of The Road Authority website.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through The Road Authority public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: The Road Authority does not read any of your private online communications.

The Road Authority encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from The Road Authority so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. The Road Authority is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of The Road Authority and The Road Authority family of websites.

Use of your Personal Information

The Road Authority collects and uses your personal information to operate The Road Authority website and deliver the services you have requested. The Road Authority also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from The Road Authority and its affiliates. The Road Authority may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

The Road Authority does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The Road Authority may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, The Road Authority may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to The Road Authority, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

The Road Authority does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

The Road Authority keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within The Road Authority, in order to determine what The Road Authority services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within The Road Authority to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

The Road Authority websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on The Road Authority or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of The Road Authority; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of The Road Authority, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Road Authority website use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize The Road Authority pages, or register with The Road Authority site or services, a cookie helps The Road Authority to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same The Road Authority website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use The Road Authority features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of The Road Authority services or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

The Road Authority secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. The Road Authority secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

The Road Authority will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. The Road Authority encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how The Road Authority is protecting your information.
