The transfer or disclosure of your personal information to such countries, including the United States, is necessary for the implementation of contractual measures taken at your (or your employer’s) request and for fulfillment of the Services to you (or your employer, as our client).

We retain personal information for a reasonable period to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it (as outlined in this Privacy Notice).

7. Security measures

We strive to use technical and organizational measures to protect personal information against loss, misuse, and unauthorized access. We review our security measures regularly and consider new measures as appropriate.

8. Tracking Technologies

In addition to our direct collection efforts described in this Privacy Notice, Nectar HR and our service providers may use, in our reasonable discretion, various tracking technologies, collection systems, and cookies or automatic analytics (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”) to collect personal information and non-personal information from your device based on your activity on our Online Platforms, doing so according to this Privacy Notice. 

As you may already know, Tracking Technologies retain information about your activity on our Online Platforms and other online locations to disclose that information to us (including our service providers) or the owner of the applicable webpage. When you access our Online Platforms, Nectar HR and our service providers may use Tracking Technologies to follow your usage of our Online Platforms and the information you review. The information we obtain in this manner enables Nectar HR to customize the Online Platforms and to contact potential client leads. We may also allow third parties, advertising companies, and ad networks to display advertisements on our Online Platforms from time to time, some of which may include links to those third parties’ respective sites. These companies may also use Tracking Technologies to collect information about users viewing or interacting with their advertisements. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies, notices of collection, and terms of use. We do not assume responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites, and we encourage you to directly review the policies and privacy practices on those sites.

You may choose to opt out of certain Tracking Technologies by modifying your browser and device settings. If you do so, however, some of the information or content on our Online Platforms may be inaccessible. WE RECOMMEND YOU REVIEW YOUR DEVICE SETTINGS TO CONFIRM IF TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES, INCLUDING GEOLOCATION TRACKING, HAVE BEEN PROPERLY DISABLED OR CONFIGURED TO YOUR PREFERENCE.
