What information does FedEx capture on visitors to its website?
fedex.ca resides on the fedex.com web server. This server uses an extended log file format which captures: date and time of visit, refer address (location from which a visitor comes to fedex.ca), type of Internet browser, and visitor's IP address. (Each computer that connects to the Internet is assigned a unique number, an IP Address, for identification purposes). The log file does not capture a visitor's email address.
Is personal information requested?
There are currently three principal areas of fedex.ca which ask for personal information. They are: Get Rates, Proof of Delivery and Tracking. This list may be expanded without notice.
In those areas, information such as your name, address, email address, billing information, and business profile are requested. This information is collected to help us further develop our services, to provide you access to valuable FedEx internet based information and services, and to bill you for those services if you elect to use them.
How is the information used?
The information helps us identify the type of website content our customers value most. We then use this information to improve the services we offer and to improve the website. We also use this information to be able to communicate with you, including by sending you email notifications about updates to the website, and to for marketing purposes.
Will my information be used for any other purposes?
FedEx may periodically send you information about various products and services as directed by you in your account preferences section. Your preferences can be changed at any time. Simply call the FedEx Freight Technical Help Desk at 1.800.435.7949.
What happens when I leave fedex.ca (or fedex.com) to visit a FedEx linked website?
Parts of fedex.ca consist of products and services hosted by business partners and other third parties. When you leave fedex.ca (or fedex.com) to visit one of their sites, the only information transferred to the third part is the fact that you came from fedex.ca (the refer address). This practice allows the third party to monitor its own website traffic, but does not provide them with any information about you. FedEx is not responsible or liable for the privacy policies or content of our third party sites. You should consult the privacy policies at those sites to determine how your information may be used.
Are cookies used?
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a series of data characters that, when programmed into a website, is placed by the Web Server into the browser's application folder on your computer. Once placed onto your machine, the cookie will allow the website to "recognize" you as a unique individual.
Please note that in most instances a cookie does not enable a User to be recognized as a name (e.g., John Doe). Rather, it will recognize an individual as a series of numbers (e.g., TRACKID=MC_53011).
