Additionally, we may now or in the future receive personal information about you from third parties that legally acquired the information and that have the right to share it with Northbridge. For example, we may receive contact information through an email list vendor, or a supplier that works with us for payroll may ask for your personal data on our behalf.

  1. How We Share Your Personal Data

Personal information: Northbridge will not rent or sell your personal information to third parties. We will only share your personal information outside of Northbridge for the reasons described below:

Northbridge business partners: We may share your personal information with Northbridge business partners including sales, solution partners and agents offering Northbridge products and services, and vendors acting at our direction. We do so only to the extent necessary for the specific business partnership, or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. Such Northbridge business partners are required to keep this information confidential and may not use it for any purpose other than to offer, sell or rent Northbridge services, or to provide services at Northbridge’s direction.

Corporate transactions: Circumstances may arise where Northbridge decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of such information from sellers. It is Northbridge’s practice to disclose personal information in these circumstances only as permitted by applicable data protection law and to seek appropriate protection for personal information in these types of corporate transactions.

Legal necessity: Northbridge also may disclose your personal information: (a) if we are required to do so by law; (b) if we believe that it is necessary to enforce or apply our terms of use and other agreements or otherwise protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Northbridge or that of our customers; or (c) to comply with a judicial proceeding, bankruptcy proceeding, court order or other legal obligation or government inquiry

Your consent: Northbridge also may disclose your personal information to any other third party with your prior consent.

Online usage information: We may share online usage information: (a) in any manner permitted for personal information, and (b) with vendors or service providers for the purposes described in the section above on “How We Use the Personal Data We Collect.” We may also aggregate or otherwise strip data of all personally identifying characteristics and may share that aggregated, anonymized data with third parties. Any aggregated information shared in these contexts will not contain your personal information.

User content: Northbridge provides some opportunities for you to generate your own internet-based content about Northbridge and our services. Typically, the personal information that you provide in this user content will be shared outside of Northbridge as described below.

User-generated comments: Northbridge’s website may contain areas where users can transmit or post communications, for example, on blogs or in user forums.

We are not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in such public areas.

Social media widgets: Northbridge’s website may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button. These features may collect online usage information through cookies or web beacons. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy statement of the social media company providing them.

  1. How We Protect Your Personal Data

Northbridge is committed to ensuring the security and accuracy of your personal data.

Security: Northbridge puts in place appropriate physical, electronic and organizational measures to safeguard and secure your data. These measures follow generally accepted industry standards both during transmission and once it is received. Unfortunately, the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmission to our website.

Accuracy: Northbridge strives to keep your personal data accurate. We will provide you access to your personal data and the ability to review and correct it or ask for it to be deleted, as applicable. To request access, correction or deletion of your personal data, please contact Northbridge. We will respond to your request as soon as is reasonably practicable and in any event within 30 days. In some instances, we may not be able to delete your personal data, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting you access or enabling you to make corrections.

Data compromise: In the event that the security of any of your personal data under our control is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Northbridge will take all reasonable steps to investigate the situation, when appropriate will notify those individuals whose personal data may have been compromised and may take other steps in accordance with any applicable laws and regulations.

Data Retention: We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
