How do we use personal data?

​In order to deliver our services, we need to keep reliable, accurate and up-to-date records of clients’ and candidates’ details as well as any interactions with them related to these services. We use the personal information collected from these individuals only for the following purposes:

​We will only share your personal information with third parties (our agents) in the ways that are described in our client agreements and this Privacy Policy. We do not sell your personal information to third parties. We may email information regarding updates to the Service or additional service offerings to our clients in accordance with the terms and conditions of each client’s agreements with us. Other third parties, such as content or third-party service providers, may provide content or services through the Service and may need access to your personal information to provide their services to you. Clients will be using a Service to host data and information. ​

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.

​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 .
