Description of the Services
Utech TMS includes a logistics information management service for freight carriers, managers, dispatchers, and brokers, which allows for extraction, consolidation, and management of load data from third party logistics provider accounts and email accounts.
Utech TMS utilizes a content parsing system that can extract data from multiple sources, including third party logistics provider accounts and email accounts, and allow users to view and manage the extracted data in one convenient place, i.e., a virtual “load board.”
Utech TMS also provides tracking management system (TMS) functionality that allows tracking, evaluation, matching, and management of transportation operations, and a map feature that provides real-time visualization of load data.
Utech TMS enables transmission of communications, messages, information and notifications via text, email, and phone.
Utech TMS is provided as a Software as a Service (SaaS) product accessible to users via web-based and mobile applications. The web-based and mobile applications allow access to a system and underlying software for providing the above-described services, functionalities, and features.
Account Information From Third Party Sites
Users may direct Utech to retrieve their own information maintained online by third parties with which they have customer relationships, maintain accounts, or engage in transactions (“Account Information”). Utech works with one or more online service providers to access this Account Information. Utech does not review the Account Information for accuracy, legality, or non-infringement. Utech is not responsible for the Account Information or products and services offered by or on third-party sites.
Utech cannot always foresee or anticipate technical or other difficulties which may result in failure to obtain data or loss of data, personalization settings or other service interruptions. Utech cannot and does not assume responsibility for the timeliness, accuracy, deletion, non-delivery or failure to store any Account Information, including but not limited to user data, communications or personalization settings. For example, when displayed through the Services, Account Information is only as current as the time shown, which reflects when the information is obtained from such sites. Such information may be more up-to-date when obtained directly from the relevant sites. You can refresh your Account Information through the Services, as directed in the associated instructions.
Third Party Services
Some of the features or communications accessed through, or received from, the Services, may permit interactions with or contain links to third-party websites, applications, or features (“Third Party Services”). Utech does not control any of these Third Party Services or any of their content. The inclusion of any link to Third Party Services does not necessarily imply Utech’s endorsement of or affiliation with that third party. You acknowledge and agree that Utech has no responsibility or liability for any such Third Party Services. Your correspondence and dealings with third parties found or accessed through the Services are solely between you and the third party. By using such Third Party Services, you acknowledge and agree that: (i) if you use the Third Party Services to share information, you consent to information about your profile on the Services being shared; (ii) your use of Third Party Services may cause personally identifying information to be publicly disclosed and/or associated with you, even if Utech itself has not provided such information; and (iii) your use of Third Party Services is at your own option and risk, and you will hold Utech harmless for activity related to the Third Party Services.
