- For marketing purposes
NRL will not use or disclose your personal information, except (i) to the extent necessary to provide the Service to you or as requested by you, or (ii) pursuant to law, or (iii) by a court order. Individual client or client candidate records may, at times, be viewed or accessed by NRL’s authorised employees or agents only for the purpose(s) of (i) providing the Service and related professional services to client or client candidates, (ii) resolving a support issue affecting any of them, (iii) to inspect and resolve a suspected violation of client agreements with a client, or (iv) as may be required by law, as determined by NRL in its sole discretion, judicial proceeding, legal process or binding court order. We also reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe, in our sole discretion, that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a legal proceeding, binding court order, or legal process.
Personal information may be disclosed or distributed to another party with which NRL enters, or may enter, into a corporation transaction. If NRL is acquired in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or substantially all its assets, you will be notified via email, on our Site and/or by a prominent notice on our Service of any change in the uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
NRL may disclose personal information to companies that assist us in providing our Services or that partner with us to provide you their services or content. In this context, any such transfers to third parties are governed by our vendor agreements with them, which provide standards of care for the protection for personal and confidential information that are not less stringent than the standards contained in our client agreements, and in no event, less than a reasonable standard of care. Such third-party companies are authorised to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us and/or you and for the purposes for which the personal information was collected. In the case of partners with whom you contract directly, their policies regarding personal information will govern your relationship with them as stated in the applicable agreement between you and the partner and we will not be responsible for any actions or omission of these partners.
Candidates are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality and security of their user registration and password. Site visitors may opt-out of receiving advertisement or promotional emails from us by selecting the opt-out link located in the message body of all our electronic communications. Clients or Site visitors may also opt out of marketing communications via the Your Account page on our Site. We may also track and analyse information that doesn’t directly identify you as a person and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our site visitors.
NRL may also ask visitors who register with our Site to provide certain information, such as email addresses to use and receive content from the Site. NRL will provide these visitors with the ability to opt-in or opt-out of future communications from the company. If you would like to discontinue receiving this information, you may update your email preferences by using the “Unsubscribe” link found in emails we send to you or on the Your Account page on our Site .
Other things to be aware of
- Data Retention by Us – We may retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with our Services, comply with our contractual and/or legal obligations, resolve disputes and/or enforce our agreements. When the purpose for which NRL is processing, the personal information is fulfilled, expires or is terminated, NRL will, upon request, provide our clients with a copy of their personal information stored by us, and NRL will then either delete or pseudonymise any remaining personal information in accordance with our client agreements.
- Data Security – NRL employs reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the personal information it processes. When the Service is accessed using Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 8.0 or higher, Transport Layer Security (TSL) technology protects information using both server authentication and data encryption to help provide that personal information is safe, and secure while in transit. NRL also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and hosts the Service in a secure server environment that uses a firewall and other advanced technology to protect against interference or access from outside intruders. Finally, NRL provides individual usernames and passwords that must be entered each time a client logs on. These safeguards help protect against unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy, and provide for the appropriate use of personal information. Nevertheless, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is one hundred percent (100%) secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee absolute security.
- No Services for Children – We do not knowingly collect information from children. To use the Site, you must be the age of legal majority in your place of residence. By using the Site, you hereby represent that you are at least the age of legal majority in your place of residence. We do not use an application or other mechanism to determine the age of users of the Site. All information provided to us will be treated as if it was provided by an adult. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete information associated with a child as soon as practicable if we learn that a child has submitted information about himself/herself to us.
- Security – NRL will take all reasonable precautions in its protection of data and any misuse, loss, destruction, alteration, and unauthorised access or disclosure.
- Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation – NRL will take all reasonable steps to provide that any personal information it processes is limited by the purpose(s) for which such personal information has been collected
