We track this information using cookies, or small text files which include an anonymous unique identifier.

They are small pieces of data that are stored by a user's web browser on one site to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user's transaction on related web pages. This makes it easier for a user to move from site to site and to complete transactions over the Internet. Cookies should make your online experience easier and more personalized.

Cookies are sent to a user’s browser from our servers and are stored on the user’s computer hard drive. Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables us to collect Non-Personal information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing our services, both on an individual and aggregate basis. For example, TailBus may use cookies to collect the following information:

On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar.

We share your full name with Charter Operators, who use that information to confirm your identity when you arrive at the passenger pick-up location at the departure time for your Trip. Charter Operators use your Personal Information only at our direction and in accordace with our Privacy Policy. We may also provide your information to third parties for the processing of that information solely for our benefit, but we will not provide your information to any third party for marketing purposes except in connection with information requests you make that involve third parties or in connection with events that involve presentations or sponsorship by third parties.
