a. Account Information. You may edit your account information at any time by accessing your account or contacting Transfix at firstname.lastname@example.org. Transfix will comply with Your requests to access, correct or delete any of Your information stored by Transfix in accordance with applicable law. You reserve the right to stop any collection of information by uninstalling the mobile application, ceasing use of the website and terminating your account with Transfix.

b. Access to Your Device Location. Transfix, or one of our service providers, may seek Your permission to track the geographic location of your device specific to performing the Services.
Your location is tracked either through the mobile application in which You opt-in to allow access to the location of your mobile device, or by providing consent to allow one of our third party service providers to access and track your location through your mobile device, subject to the Location Terms and Conditions.
At any time You have the right to discontinue providing Transfix the geographic location of Your device by disabling location access on Your device, refusing to provide consent to location services or revoking your consent by texting STOP to 84787 or by calling 646-844-2200. However, disabling location access or refusing the location services will limit your use of the Services or prevent Transfix’s ability to perform the Services.
c. Text Messaging. As part of the Services, You agree to receive text messages. You can opt out of receiving text messages by texting the word STOP to the number in which you received the text message on your mobile device; however, opting out of receiving all texts may impact your use of the Services. Please refer to the Text Messaging Terms and Conditions for more information.
d. Cookies. Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable existing cookies. However, disabling cookies might limit your access and use of the Services.
We also use third-party verification and authentication technologies to authenticate the users of Our Applications. Such technologies may use Your user mobile phone number and Your device ID to send authentication tokens, such as an SMS message or code to Your mobile device, to authenticate Your access and use of the Applications.
f. Do Not Track Requests. Currently, Our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies), but such disabling will impair Your use of the Applications.
