NHS Global Distributors, Inc. takes care to protect the privacy and security of the
information that you share with us through NHS-Global.com ("the Website",
"this Website", "our Website"). It is important that you understand how we collect, use, and
maintain any information you provide us. This Policy explains our approach
including our online information practices, the choices you may make about how
we collect and use your information at this Website, and the ways you may contact
Personal Information includes,
without limitation, your name, contact information (including email address,
instant messaging username, and website URL, as applicable), and other
individually identifiable information about you.
Non-Identifying Personal Information includes information about your web browsing and other Internet usage, including, without limitation, your Internet service provider, IP address, IP country of origin, browser type and plug-ins installed, the Website that referred you to us, the web pages you request, the date and time of those requests, and our web page entry and exit points.
Aggregated Information is any information about more than one individual where the individual identities are unknown and cannot be inferred from the information. Aggregated Information is not Personal Information.
COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
"the website" may collect Personal Information from you, but only if you provide it to us voluntarily, or it is sent to us by your web browser. We also collect Personal Information that you provide to our Merchants, which they pass on to us for secure storage according to industry security standards. You must provide Personal Information in the form of a unique identifier (for example email or username, and password) to enter certain parts of our Website.
COLLECTION AND USE OF NON-IDENTIFYING PERSONAL INFORMATION
COOKIES AND LOCAL SHARED OBJECTS
Cookies (pieces of text stored on a user's computer by their web browser) allow us to provide features such as Website session login.
The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to configure your web browser to accept cookies, to prevent your browser from accepting cookies that last beyond the current session, to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or to disable cookies altogether. No Personal Information will be encoded in cookies that are stored on your computer.
Local shared objects (also known as "super cookies", or "Flash cookies"), when deployed, are used to store the same information as can be found inside traditional browser cookies. Our global anti-fraud network partners use them to identify devices that have been previously used to place orders with our Merchants, or with merchants that are part of the global anti-fraud networks, that have resulted in an outstanding financial loss.
You can read here about browser plug-ins to manage local shared objects, and read here how to configure your web browser to accept local shared objects, to prevent your browser from
accepting local shared objects that last beyond the current session, to have the browser notify you when you receive
a new local shared object, or to disable local shared objects altogether.
We do not knowingly collect, maintain, or use Personal Information from those under the age of 18 years. If you are under 18 years of age, you must not share your personal information with us unless we have received your parent/guardian's written consent, and you have reached the minimum applicable age in your jurisdiction.
USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
As a general principle we only collect, use, and disclose Personal Information for purposes that are reasonable given the circumstances. We use only fair and lawful means to collect it. We use Personal Information to provide payment gateway services or to allow you to view your transaction details of an order placed by you with one of the Merchants using our gateway. We may also use Personal Information to provide current and potential customers and merchants with information about our services. At no time will this information be sold or traded by us.
We reserve the right to use or disclose non-personally identifying Aggregated Information for business purposes, in compliance with the relevant Data Protection legislation.
We reserve the right to disclose Personal Information to other companies and individuals from time to time, in order for them to perform functions for us under confidentiality agreements, or under accepted standards of commercial confidentiality. These types of agents include mailing and delivery companies (such as USPS or UPS, etc.), and other agents who perform functions for, or on, our behalf.
These agents may perform functions including fulfilling of orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, providing customer service and for fraud screening. Where we disclose Personal Information to organizations that perform services on our behalf, we require those organizations to use such information solely for the purposes of providing the contracted services to us, and to protect the Personal Information with appropriate safeguards.
PROTECTION OF "the Website"
We may use or disclose Personal Information without your consent in certain circumstances:
If we are required by law, or by an order or requirement of a court, or by court rules concerning the production of records;
If we have reasonable grounds to believe that use or disclosure is necessary to protect the privacy, property, or safety of our users or others;
If we have reasonable grounds to believe that the information relates to a breach of agreement or violation of the law that has been, is being, or is about to be committed;
If it is necessary for fraud protection, risk reduction, or the establishment of amounts or collection of monies owed to us;
If it is necessary to enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements, to pursue remedies, or to limit damages to "the website";
When we are required or permitted to disclose information without consent, we will not disclose more information than is necessary to fulfill the disclosure purpose. We do not like or support unlawful and unreasonable "fishing expeditions" by governmental agencies, companies, (or individuals), without a court order.
You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to reasonable notice and your legal or contractual obligations. To withdraw your consent, simply tell us of the Personal Information that you no longer wish us to collect, use, or disclose through the Contact Information listed below.
RETENTION AND ACCESS
We will take reasonable steps to keep your Personal Information accurate, complete, current, and relevant to its intended use. We keep your Personal Information only as long as we need it for the reasons it was collected. When your Personal Information is no longer required for our purposes, we have procedures to destroy, delete, or erase it, or to convert it to an anonymous form according to industry security standards.
At your request, we will provide you with reasonable access to your Personal Information, so that you can review what we have stored and, if you choose, request corrections to it. After you request access, we will provide the Personal Information that you request as soon as practically possible and generally no later than thirty days following the request. If you wish to correct your Personal Information, please send us a written explanation of the particular information that you believe should be corrected. Where information will not or cannot be disclosed, we will tell you the reasons for non-disclosure as we are permitted by law. Please make such requests in English or Icelandic.
"the website" combines technical and physical safeguards with employee policies and procedures to protect your information. We work to protect your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information that you provide online at our Website. We also offer the option to send information to us encrypted using the Pretty Good Privacy standard (PGP and OpenPGP) over email. We will always use commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information, according to industry security standards.
Further, we permit only authorized employees of NHS Global Distributors, Inc. to access any Personal Information that you supply to us. If an employee misuses Personal Information, we will take disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment, and remedies available at law. If any individual or organization we contract with as an agent for us, or supplier to us, misuses personal Information, we will take action, including termination of any agreement between NHS Global Distributors, and that individual or organization, and remedies available at law.
