This policy also applies to information about you that we collect or receive in email, text, and other electronic messages between you and Across Express.

Please read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding the collection of information about you, whether via our Websites, Application, or from other sources, and how we will treat it.

Your continued use of our Services after we make changes to this policy is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

This policy specifically applies to:

Third Party Services

This Privacy Policy does not address, and we are not responsible for, the privacy, information or other practices of any third parties, including any third party operating any site or service to which the Services link. The inclusion of a link on the Services does not imply endorsement of the linked site or service by us or by our affiliates.

Data Security

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect Personal Information within our organization. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us. If we learn of a security systems breach, we will inform you and the authorities of the occurrence of the breach in accordance with applicable law.

However, our practices regarding your Personal Information will at all times continue to be governed by this Policy.
