Additionally, TAXI’s website uses pixel tags to tell us what parts of our website have been visited or to measure the effectiveness of searches customers perform on our site.

IS YOUR INFORMATION SECURE?

You need to protect unauthorized access to your account and Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. You are prohibited from sharing your exclusive TAXI login information and if you share your password or your Information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account.

TAXI always makes best efforts to protect user information to ensure that user account information is kept private; however, TAXI cannot guarantee or ensure the security of user account information.

Unauthorized entry or use by third parties, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time, including your Information.
If TAXI, or all or any portion of its business or assets, are acquired, sold, or otherwise transferred, including in any merger or other transaction, or in the unlikely event that TAXI goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, consumer and customer Information would be one of the assets that is transferred to or acquired by the successor or acquirer (or a third party through bankruptcy). You acknowledge and agree that such transfers may occur in any of these circumstances, and that any acquirer or successor or other party acquiring all or any portion of TAXI's business or assets may continue to use your Information as set forth in this policy.
