This Privacy Policy describes the personal information we collect on the Site, how we use it, and when we share it with third parties. This policy applies only to personal information collected via the Site, and unless otherwise specifically described herein, does not apply to personal information collected offline, including but not limited to, information you may provide over the phone, via fax, or when visiting building sites or any other facility of The NQTA.

Information Collection and Use

The information collected via the Site may be combined with other information collected about you and may be used and disclosed in a number of ways by The NQTA to help The NQTA better understand and serve you, including without limitation, as described below.

  • To provide you with, or otherwise respond to your requests for, information and/or services.

You agree that if any information provided by you is false, inaccurate, obsolete or incomplete, The NQTA may terminate your use of the Site and withdraw your consideration into activities undetaken and supplied by The NQTA.

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, all information submitted to The NQTA via our website is used only to assist in selection and appointment of members. We do not sell or rent to third parties any of the personal information that you provide to us through the Site, or authorise any of our suppliers to sell or rent any such personal information.  We may disclose your personal information to our business units, agents, affiliates and to other third parties as part of our consideration of any subsequent business application.  Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we do not authorise unaffiliated third parties to use your personal information for any purpose other than consideration of your application.

The NQTA operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protected systems, and maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard the integrity and privacy of these servers and of your personal information.  Although we can’t guarantee that there will never be a security problem, we and our suppliers that have access to your information take commercially reasonable steps to guard against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information we collect on the Site.


As with many state-of-the-art Sites, The NQTA may use “cookies” to, among other things, enhance the functionality of the Site and to make transactions and other activities through the Site more convenient and efficient for users. A “cookie” is a file stored locally on a user’s computer. Most Internet browsers include preference settings that allow users to be notified and control whether cookies are transferred to their computers.

Consent to Processing

Legal Requests or Orders

The NQTA may make information concerning the Site, and the uses thereof, available to law enforcement personnel and agencies when requested to do so or as required by law.  The NQTA may also disclose such information upon a good faith belief that it is required to do so, in order to protect property or persons or in furtherance to an investigation regarding a breach of the Site’s policies.  The NQTA will also disclose your submission(s) and provided content when it has reason to believe that disclosing submissions and/or content you provided is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (whether intentionally or unintentionally) others rights or property.

The NQTA reserves the right, at its sole discretion, at any time and from time to time, temporarily or permanently, in whole or in part, to: modify or discontinue the Site with or without notice; limit the Site’s availability to any person, geographic area or jurisdiction; modify and/or waive any fees charged in connection with the Site; and/or offer opportunities to some or all users of the Site.  You agree that The NQTA nor any affiliated entity, subsidiary or person shall be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Site, in whole or in part, or any content, submission, feature or product offered through the Site.  Your continued use of the Site after such changes will indicate acceptance of such changes.
