Noc Noc Limited (a limited company incorporated in New Zealand) (Noc Noc) operates https://nocnoc.co.nz/(Website) as well as the application that Noc Noc makes available (Application). Together, the Website and Application provides Noc Noc’s service (Service).

This page is used to inform you of Noc Noc’s policies relating to the collection, use, and disclosure of Personal Information when you use our Service. When we talk about Personal Information, we mean information relating to you or other identifiable individuals and which, if made available to a third party, would allow that third party to identify you.

By visiting and/or using any of the Service, you agree to be bound by the terms of then current privacy policy (Privacy Policy). Noc Noc reserves the right, at any time, to modify or replace the Privacy Policy.

Your use of the Service following the posting of any changes to the Privacy Policy constitutes acceptance of those changes.

The Personal Information that we collect is used for providing and improving the Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy. Noc Noc stores your Personal Information after interactions with the Service. Consequently, Noc Noc is the data controller in respect of this Personal Information, therefore, it has to take on the legal responsibilities that come with storing information.

Personal Information Collection

For a better experience while using our Service, we may receive certain Personal Information from Social Media Platforms, including but not limited to your name, phone number and/or email address. The information that we collect will be used to contact or identify you. Noc Noc is the data controller in respect of this Personal Information.

The Service allows you to download the Application, and sign up to Noc Noc via the Application or via your social media account (e.g. Facebook). This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information or other content you can view via the Service on Social Media Platforms or information you provide to Third-Party Apps accessed via a Social Media Platform.

Noc Noc cannot take responsibility for the content or privacy policies of any Social Media Platforms or Third-Party Apps. Please ensure you read and understand the privacy policies of any Social Media Platform or Third-Party App accessed by you via the Services.

Using Personal Information

Noc Noc uses your Personal Information for the following general purposes:

·         to identify you when you login to your account;

·         to enable us to operate the Service and provide it to you;

·         to analyze the Websites or Application and information about our visitors and users, including research into our user demographics and user behaviour in order to improve our content and Service;

·         to contact you about your account and provide customer service support, including responding to your comments and questions;

·         to keep you informed about the Service, features, surveys, newsletters, offers, contests and events we think you may find useful or which you have requested from us;

·         to sell or market Noc Noc products and services to you;

·         to better understand your needs and the needs of users in the aggregate, diagnose problems, analyze trends, improve the features and usability of the Service, and better understand and market to our customers and users; and

·         to keep the Service safe and secure.

We also use non-identifiable information gathered for statistical purposes to keep track of the number of visits to the Service with a view to introducing improvements and improving usability of the Service. We may share this type of anonymised statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use the Service, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal experience.

Sharing Personal Information

Since our goal is to help you create meaningful connections and interactions, the main sharing of users' information is, of course, with other users.

When you use our Service you share information with other users when you voluntarily disclose information on the Service (including your public profile). Please err on the side of caution with your information and make sure that the content you share is material that you are comfortable being publically viewable since neither you nor we can control what others do with your information once you share it.  If you choose to limit the audience for all or part of your profile or certain content or information about yourself, then this will be visible according to your settings.

We may use your Personal Information, either individually, in the aggregate, and/or combined with demographic information that we maintain or collect from third parties. However, such information will always be displayed in an anonymised way so that you personally cannot be identified.

We may disclose your personal information if reasonably necessary: (i) to comply with a legal process, such as a court order, subpoena or search warrant, government/law enforcement investigation or other legal requirements; (ii) to assist in the prevention or detection of crime (subject in each case to applicable law); or (iii) to protect the safety of any person.

We may also share information: (i) if disclosure would mitigate our liability in an actual or threatened lawsuit; (ii) as necessary to protect our legal rights and legal rights of our users, business partners or other interested parties; (iii) to enforce our agreements with you; and (iv) to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing.

We may disclose anonymised information to companies affiliated with Noc Noc and/or unaffiliated third parties (i) to provide the products and services you have requested; and (ii) for administrative, analytical, and marketing purposes. Again, this information will not allow you to be identified by any third party.

Subject to obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy, we may also disclose information to our affiliates, agents, contractors, and service providers in order to facilitate the functioning of the Service or to perform tasks that are integral to the Service, such as processing transactions, fulfilling requests for information, or providing support services or other tasks, from time to time. Information may also be transferred from Noc Noc to the third parties in control of the Social Media Platforms, but only to the extent required in order for the Services to function properly.

Storage and Transfer of Personal Information

Noc Noc is a New Zealand incorporated company with its head-office located in Auckland, New Zealand. For the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), New Zealand is considered a country which provides adequate protections for Personal Information, as confirmed by the European Commission in Commission Decision 2013/65/EU.

The Services are provided from our office in New Zealand. However, by the very nature of the Service, the data that is viewed by you through the Service also may flow from where the relevant Social Media Platform stores the data (i.e. in most cases, in the United States) to wherever you are located in the world. In addition, Noc Noc uses third-party service providers (such as managed hosting providers, card processors, CRM systems, and technology partners) to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, storage and other services that we use to operate the Service.

By using the Service or submitting any Personal Information to Noc Noc via the Service, you consent to Noc Noc and its authorized service partners using your Personal Information in New Zealand in order to make the Service available to you. Please be aware that the privacy protections and the rights of authorities and government agencies to access your Personal Information in some of these countries may not be equivalent to those in New Zealand.

Noc Noc will guarantee that we will never sell your data to any third party. We may transfer your information if Noc Noc is involved, whether in whole or in part, in a merger, sale, acquisition, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, bankruptcy or other change of ownership or control.

Noc Noc has appointed a Privacy Officer who can be contacted at privacyofficer@nocnoc.co.nz.
