Please note that this Policy applies where we are processing personal information on our own behalf. If you have been given access to our Services by another company or organization (e.g., your employer), or are otherwise using our Services on behalf of another company or organization, then we may be processing your information on behalf of that company or organization.

How We Collect Information

Information You Give Us

We collect information that you give to us when you register or use our Services. When you register for a NEXT user account ("Account") on the website or mobile application, you will be assigned a unique account identifier which will be associated with any information you give to us under your Account. You may also give us information to allow us to contact you or use certain features available through our Services without signing up for an Account, such as when you fill out a request form, provide feedback, email us, or engage in communications with our team. While you may use some functionality of the Services and/or Site without registering for an Account, most functionality and services will require that you register for an Account.

Customer Support Information

Your emails, calls and other correspondence to and from us may be recorded for various purposes including: monitoring customer service quality or compliance, checking accuracy of the information you provide us, preventing fraud or providing training for our staff or customer service representatives. Any information obtained from you through Customer support will be treated in accordance with the provisions of this Policy.

Information We Collect Automatically

Even if you do not provide information to us, we automatically collect certain information about your use and interaction with our Site and/or Services. For example, when you visit our website, our systems automatically maintain web logs to record data about all visitors who use our website and stores this information in our database. These web logs may contain information about you including the following: IP address, type(s) of operating system you use, type of device you use, date and time you visited the website, your activity and/or referring websites. We use your log information to troubleshoot problems, gather demographic information, customize your experience when accessing our Site, Services and other business purposes.

Information Collected From Other Sources

We may receive information about you from outside sources, such as commercially available demographic or marketing information, and add or combine it with your information to provide better service to you and inform you of Services or other information that may be of interest to you. Our Site offers you the functionality of using your social media credentials (e.g. Google, etc.) to use single-sign-on to enter our Site, and in that manner, we may also collect certain information from you as you log on. We will not collect more information from you when using your social media credentials beyond the information such third parties disclose to us.

 

How We Use Information

We will use your information to provide and maintain our Site and Services, to improve your user experience, and for the other purposes described in this Policy.

With Whom We Share Information

Disclosure With Your Consent

Where we are processing your information on behalf of a Customer, the Customer determines their own policies and practices for the sharing and disclosure of your information and NEXT does not control how a Customer or any other third parties choose to share or disclose information. Where we are processing your information on our own behalf, we may disclose your information with your consent, which we may obtain in a number of ways, including:

  • In writing;
  • Verbally;
  • Online, by clicking on a link or button;
  • Other mechanism.

Our Services permit you to submit information which may be displayed to other authorized users in the same or different Customer Account. The sharing and other controls applied to such information may be determined by you, other users and/or an administrator of your Account.

Disclosure Without Your Consent

In general, we do not share or disclose your information without your consent to disclosure outside of NEXT or its controlled subsidiares and affiliates except when we reasonably believe disclosure is appropriate in order to:

  • Comply with the law (e.g., lawful subpoena or court order);
  • Cooperate with or report to law enforcement agencies in investigations that involve users who use our Service Offerings for activities that are or seem illegal or illegitimate activities;
  • Enforce or apply agreements for our Service Offerings; or
  • Protect our rights or property or that of our affiliates, including respective officers, directors, employees, agents, third party content providers, suppliers, sponsors, or licensors (e.g., to address allegations about fraudulent or unlawful activity related to a NEXT account).
  • In connection with a merger, acquisition, public offering, sale of company assets, insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, subject to standard confidentiality requirements.
  • To defend NEXT and our affiliates, licensors, officers, agents and representatives from legal claims and processes brought to us by third parties (including takedown notices);
  • Use or disclose aggregated or de-identified data in our sole discretion.

We may share your information with third parties as necessary to provide Services to you or to support the technical operation and/or maintenance of our Services, including third party application that you may engage within the Services. We may also share information with our affiliates, agents, outside vendors or service providers to perform functions on our behalf (such as cloud storage providers, customer support and analytics services). When a third party acts solely on our behalf and otherwise as applicable, we use reasonable commercial efforts to require that party to follow the privacy practices stated in this Policy or have complementary privacy protections to protect your information. We do not share your information with unaffiliated third parties except as permitted to do so in this Policy.

 

How We Protect Information

We use industry standard protocols and technology to protect your registered user information and personal data in order to guard and encrypt data for transmission in a format that prevents data theft by unauthorized third parties, including internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices, security measures, and physical security measures. However, please take into account that the Internet and email transmissions are not secure or error free communication means. We also urge you to take additional steps on your own to safeguard and maintain the integrity of your information. For example, you should never share your Account or login information with other people and be sure to sign off when finished using a shared or public computer. We urge you to be aware that if you use or access our Services through a third party computer network (e.g., internet café, library) or other potentially non-secure internet connection, such use is not recommended and is solely at your own risk. It is your responsibility to check beforehand on the privacy and/or security policy of your network prior to accessing the Services. We are not responsible for your handling, sharing, re-sharing and/or distribution of your information except as set forth in the Policy.

International Data Transfers

NEXT's headquarters and servers are located in the Netherlands within the European Economic Area (‘EU’).This means that your personal information may be accessed and processed by us in the EU or in the EU and other countries where our affiliates, agents, partners, or third party service providers operate.

Where such transfers occur, we will make sure that an appropriate transfer agreement is put in place to protect your personal data. If you are accessing our Site from other regions, you ought to know that you are thereby transferring your personal data to the EU or to any other country in which we operate.

Data Transfers outside the EEA, Switzerland and UK

This includes transferring your information to a country that the European Commission or UK authorities (as applicable) have determined provides an adequate level of protection for personal information, or by implementing standard contractual clauses with our customers, third party service providers and partners. We have also implemented certain additional safeguards to ensure your information remains protected, such as encrypting and pseudonymising information (where possible) and implementing strict security and access controls.
