This is an agreement between you and Landstar and governs your use of the Site, its contents and services.  Each time you visit, browse, order goods through, purchase goods through, advertise goods through, access or otherwise use the Site, you signify your acceptance and agreement, and the acceptance and agreement of any person you purport to represent (and for the purposes of this Agreement, “person” includes any type of incorporated or unincorporated entity, including your employer), without limitation or qualification, to be bound by this Agreement for using the Site, and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

By accessing this Site, you represent and warrant that you are at least eighteen (18) years old and that you have the legal authority to agree to and accept this Agreement on behalf of yourself and any person you purport to represent.   

If you do not have the legal authority to agree to and accept this Agreement, or if you are not authorized to agree to and accept this Agreement, or if you do not agree with the terms of this Agreement, then you may not use the Site. 

2.                 Scope of this Agreement

These Terms of Use only apply to your activities when using the Site or its contents.  From time to time, we may establish or authorize a Landstar service provider to establish a Landstar-branded site that operates under different terms and conditions, such as landstarcompanystore.com.  Those different terms and conditions will be linked to that site’s home page.  Please review such different terms and conditions if you choose to visit those sites, as they govern your use thereof. 

These Terms of Use do not affect or amend the terms of any other contracts you have entered into or may enter into with Landstar or a Landstar affiliate, such as carrier contracts, agency agreements, transportation and logistics contracts, and other contracts for Landstar goods or services (each of these separate contracts with Landstar and/or its affiliates is referred to as a “Landstar Contract”), and your and Landstar’s (and its affiliates’) respective obligations thereunder, except as otherwise expressly set forth in such Landstar Contract.  A Landstar “affiliate” is any entity that controls, is under common control with, or is controlled by, Landstar.

 

3.                 Authority

Landstar is based in the state of Florida in the United States.  Landstar provides this Site for use primarily by persons located in the United States and the Site is not intended to be used by persons located outside of the United States or Canada.  Landstar makes no claims that the Site or any of its content is accessible or appropriate outside of the United States.  Access to the Site may not be legal by certain persons or in certain countries.  If you access the Site from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative and you accept full responsibility for ensuring compliance with local laws.  

4.                 Changes to these Terms of Use

We may modify, suspend or terminate the operation of the Site, as well as its content and offerings, in whole and/or in part, in our sole discretion, at any time and for any reason.

From time to time, Landstar may, in its sole discretion, for any reason and without any liability to you or any other person, change, supplement or amend these Terms of Use, or require that you agree to additional terms and conditions (the “Revised Terms”) in order to continue using the Site. 

You may be required to agree to Revised Terms in order for you to obtain Passwords (as defined below), access certain areas of the Site or utilize certain features or functions offered on the Site by Landstar.  For example, certain portions of the Site may only be accessible to those who have met prerequisite Landstar business qualifications or to those situated in particular geographic locations.  Landstar may require you to agree to Revised Terms before you are allowed to post information to the Site, participate in group discussions or business forums, enter sweepstakes and contests, and engage in similar interactive activities.  Such Revised Terms are incorporated herein by reference and made a part of these Terms of Use. 

These Terms of Use may only be modified in writing by an authorized officer of Landstar and they may not be modified orally or in writing by our Site’s customer service representatives or our employees.  You may not change, supplement, or amend these Terms of Use in any manner.

You are responsible for checking for revisions to the Terms of Use each time you use the Site and, in any event, are bound to changes to this Agreement thirty (30) days after such changes have been introduced and for which notification of substantive changes has been made (such as a notice on the home page of the Site that such change has been made.)

From time to time, the Site may contain information about third party products and services.  For example, Landstar may arrange for discounts to be provided on certain third party products and services, and third party products and services may be advertised on the Site.  Further, Landstar may provide a section on the Site where users may post information about their property, such as trucks, trailers and other trucking-related equipment, or services they want to sell or provide (a “For Sale By Owner Service”).  With respect to all such third party products and services, you should be aware that they are not being provided by Landstar and Landstar is not responsible for such goods or services or the terms on which they may be purchased or sold.  If you choose to purchase such goods or services, you should carefully evaluate them and the terms upon which you are purchasing them.

12.            Request Mechanisms

Landstar makes available on the Site mechanisms for you to request or inquire about transportation, logistics and other non-Site-related services from Landstar or its affiliates.  None of these mechanisms create a binding obligation between you and Landstar or its affiliates, and in order for you to engage Landstar or its affiliates to provide any such services, you and Landstar or the affiliate must execute separate written contracts setting forth the terms and conditions under which such services are to be provided.

13.            Information you provide to Landstar on the Site
