  • 7. Transfer to other countries

    NJPropertyRecords shares your personal data globally with NJPropertyRecords group companies in order to carry out the activities specified in this Policy. NJPropertyRecords may also subcontract processing to, or share your personal data with, third parties located in countries other than your country. Your personal data, therefore, may be subject to privacy laws that are different from those in your country.

    Personal data collected within the European Union and Switzerland may, for example, be transferred to and processed by third parties located in a country outside of the European Union and Switzerland. In such instances NJPropertyRecords shall ensure that the transfer of your personal data is carried out in accordance with applicable privacy laws and, in particular, that appropriate contractual, technical, and organizational measures are in place such as the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the EU Commission.

    For further details of the security measures we use to protect your personal data, please see Section 9 ‘Keeping your personal data safe’ of this Policy.

Please read their privacy policies to find out how they collect and process your personal data.

  • 9. Keeping your personal data safe

    We are committed to protecting our users’ personal data. We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to help protect the security of your personal data; however, please note that no system is ever completely secure. We have implemented various policies including pseudonymization, encryption, access, and retention policies to guard against unauthorized access and unnecessary retention of personal data in our systems.

    Your password protects your user account, so we encourage you to use a strong password that is unique to your NJPropertyRecords account, never share your password with anyone, limit access to your computer and browser, and log out after having used the NJPropertyRecords Service.

  • 10. Children

    The NJPropertyRecords Service is not offered to children whose age makes it illegal to process their personal data or requires parental consent for the processing of their personal data under the GDPR or other local law.

    We do not knowingly collect personal data from children under 13 years or under the applicable age limit (the “Age Limit”). If you are under the Age Limit, please do not use the NJPropertyRecords Service, and do not provide any personal data to us.

    If you are a parent of a child under the Age Limit and become aware that your child has provided personal data to NJPropertyRecords, please contact us using the ‘Live Chat’ feature on our website and you may request exercise of your applicable rights detailed in Section 3 ‘Your rights and your preferences: Giving you choice and control’ of this Policy.

    If we learn that we have collected the personal data of a child under the age of 13 years, we will take reasonable steps to delete the personal data. This may require us to delete the NJPropertyRecords account for that child.

  • 11. Changes to this Policy

    We may occasionally make changes to this Policy.

    When we make material changes to this Policy, we’ll provide you with prominent notice as appropriate under the circumstances, e.g., by displaying a prominent notice within the NJPropertyRecords Service or by sending you an email and/or a device notification. We may notify you in advance.

    Please, therefore, make sure you read any such notice carefully.
