We are committed to protecting the online privacy of visitors to our website. This policy applies only to the website and online services provided by the Principality of Nooqland. The purpose of this policy is to inform you about the types of information we gather about you when you visit our website, how we may use that information, and how we disclose it to third parties.
The Principality of Nooqland adheres to and is in compliance with the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles developed in coordination with the European Union’s Directive on Data Protection and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
At various locations on our websites, such as our contact and application forms, we may request that you supply us with “personal information,” like your name and email address. You will always know when we are collecting personal information, because we only collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us through our online forms. Although you do not have to provide us with any information to visit our websites, you may not be able to fully utilize all of the services on our websites if you choose not to provide certain information. If you do choose to give us personal information through our websites, we will collect, retain and secure that information.
When you use our websites, we may also collect “non-personal information”, which is information that, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (your location, IP address, browser, viewing device, etc.). Non-personal information may also include technical information, such as your IP address, the type of browser you are using, the websites you visit immediately before and immediately after you visit our websites, and other anonymous data involving your use of our websites. Non-personal information may also include information that you provide us through your use of our website.
How we use the information we collect
Our services and websites
We use your personal information to provide you any services that you may request or require, to communicate with you, to allow you to make full use of the services on this site. We use aggregated non-personal information about our users to understand our website’s demographics, such as the geographic distribution of our users, the age ranges of our users, or a combination of these or other demographics. We use the non-personal information we collect to analyze how our websites are being used, and to improve the content of our websites, online product offerings, and promotional efforts.
If you send us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your personal information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. However, aside from our reply to such an e-mail, it is not our standard practice to send you email unless you request a particular service that involves email communications or in order to provide customer support in connection with those products. There may be times when you will have the opportunity to subscribe to an e-mail list or electronic newsletter that will send information about our websites to your e-mail address. However, we will provide you with the option to change your preferences and opt-out of receiving those communications.
Disclosure of information to third parties
Except as specifically set forth in this policy, we do not share your personal information with any non-affiliated third party without your permission. We may disclose aggregate information, such as demographic information, and our statistical analyses to third parties. This aggregate information does not include your personal information.
We may disclose personal information when we are required or requested to do so by law, court order or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency; to enforce or apply our rights and agreements; or when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is necessary or advisable, including, for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of the Principality of Nooqland, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
Security of the information we collect
The security of your personal information is important to us. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to secure your personal information. However, “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and there is always some risk in transmitting information electronically. This website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
Accuracy of the information we collect
This policy is effective as of 4th April 2016. We reserve the right to change this policy at any time, and will post any changes to this policy as soon as they go into effect. Please refer back to this policy on a regular basis.
