2.6collect certain technical information, such as the browser version and operating system;
2.7disclose the User’s personal information to any third party other than as set out below:
2.7.1to our employees and/or third party Service providers who assist NXT-9 to interact with Users via our Platform, or any other method, for the ordering of Products or Services and thus need to know the User’s personal information in order to assist NXT-9 to communicate with Users properly and efficiently;

2.7.3to law enforcement, government officials, fraud detection agencies or other third parties when NXT-9 believe in good faith that the disclosure of personal information is necessary to prevent physical harm or financial loss, to report suspected illegal activity, or to investigate violations of the Privacy Policy;
2.7.4to our Service providers (under contract with NXT-9) who help with parts of our business operations (fraud prevention, marketing, technology services etc). However, our contracts dictate that these Service providers may only use the User’s information in connection with the Services they perform for NXT-9 and not for their own benefit;
2.7.5to our suppliers in order for them to liaise directly with Users in the event of Users submitting a warranty claim regarding any Products or Services Users have purchased which requires their involvement.
2.8From time to time NXT-9 may also administer random “interactive pop-up” surveys to some Users on their sites. These surveys request additional demographic, non-personally identifiable information. The Users’ participation in a survey is always voluntary, and Users, therefore, have a choice as to whether or not to provide the requested survey information. NXT-9 use the information collected in the survey, in conjunction with information gathered through cookies and code, in order to provide Users with an even more detailed understanding of its target market.
2.9Some voluntarily provided personally identifiable information may be captured; for example, when an email address or telephone number is incorporated into a survey for the potential awarding of a prize draw, or when the respondent has opted-in to possible follow up research. This information may be shared with entities or other Users who in turn have agreed to adhere to this Privacy Policy.
2.10NXT-9 are entitled to use or disclose the User’s personal information if such use or disclosure is required in order to comply with any applicable law, subpoena, order of a court or legal process served on NXT-9, or to protect and defend our rights or property.
