You must be signed in to access the "Account" section. You may also request that we delete the personal information that we hold about you.
Right of erasure
We retain transaction data for up to 7 years for reconciliation purposes, accounting purposes, future due diligence, potential disputes from consumers, and potential audits from our partner toll agencies.

Cookies, web beacons & other technologies
We sometimes collect non-identifiable information from visits to our Web sites to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the domains from which people visit, and we also measure visitor activity on Uproad Web sites. Still, we do so in ways that keep the information non-identifiable.

Some Uproad Web sites also use Web beacon or other technologies to tailor those sites to provide better customer service. These technologies may be in use on some pages across Uproad's Web sites. When a visitor accesses these pages, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated, which may be processed by our suppliers or by us. These Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you don't want your cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies.
