Northern Regional Alliance (NRA) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe on-line experience.
This Statement of Privacy applies to the NRA website and governs data collection and usage. By using the NRA website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
NRA collects personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address or telephone number. NRA also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by NRA. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses. This information is used by NRA for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the NRA website.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through NRA public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: NRA does not read any of your private on-line communications.
NRA encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose, to link to and from NRA so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information. NRA is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on web sites outside of the NRA and NRA family of websites.
Use of your Personal Information
NRA collects and uses your personal information to operate the NRA website and deliver the services you have requested. NRA also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from NRA and its affiliates. NRA may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services, or of potential new services that may be offered.
NRA does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to 3rd parties. NRA may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the 3rd party. In addition, NRA may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such 3rd parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to NRA, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
NRA does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
NRA keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within NRA, in order to determine what NRA services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within NRA to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
NRA websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law, or comply with legal process served on NRA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of NRA; and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of NRA, or the public.
The NRA website uses "cookies" to help you personalise your on-line experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise NRA pages, or register with NRA site or services, a cookie helps NRA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same NRA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the NRA features that you customised.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the NRA services or websites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
NRA secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. NRA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
NRA will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. NRA encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how NRA is protecting your information.
NRA welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that NRA has not adhered to this Statement, please contact NRA at webteam@healthAlliance.co.nz. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
