TransMontaigne Partners offers an informational website, available at the domain http://www.transmontaignepartners.com (the “Website” or “Site”), as described further in our Terms of Use. We respect and are committed to maintaining your privacy. This privacy policy and agreement (“Privacy Policy”) covers how we collect, use, and treat personal information that you may provide through our Website. Our Privacy Policy applies to all users of our Website (collectively, “you”). The terms “TransMontaigne Partners,” “we,” and “us” refer to TransMontaigne Partners, L.P.

YOUR CONSENT TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY CREATES LEGAL OBLIGATIONS FOR YOU AND FOR US. PLEASE READ SECTION 2 (YOUR CONSENT) TO LEARN WHAT CONSTITUTES “CONSENT” UNDER THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING OUR SITE.

1. Navigating Our Privacy Policy.
It is important that you understand this Privacy Policy. To assist in your understanding, we have divided this Privacy Policy into numbered sections, and provided a set of definitions to allow easy reference to the key concepts in this Policy.

2. Your Consent.
Please read this Privacy Policy carefully; once you consent to this Policy’s terms, it creates legal obligations on you and on TransMontaigne Partners. By accessing and using our Site, you are acknowledging that you have read and understood this Privacy Policy and that you agree to be legally bound by it. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING OUR SITE.

3. The Types of Information We Collect.
Information we may collect when you visit our Site falls into three broad categories, as follows:

3.1. Personal Information.

We collect and use Personal Information in the manner described in Section 4 (Our Uses of Your Personal Information). You can always decline to supply Personal Information, with the caveat that it may prevent you from engaging in certain services that may be available on the Site.

3.2. Activities Information. We use the term “Activities Information” to refer to information collected by so-called “persistent identifiers” such as cookies and web beacons. Unlike Personal Information, Activities Information does not directly identify a particular person; the Activities Information, however, is or can potentially be linked to a particular computer or device. Activities Information is collected and used in the manner described in Section 6 (Our Collection and Use of Activities Information).

3.3. Aggregated Statistics. We use the term “Aggregated Statistics” to mean information that does not identify you and that is not linkable to a device or computer you use.
