As used in this Policy, the terms “use,” “using” and “processing” information include using cookies or other similar technologies on a computer/phone/device, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including but not limited to, scanning, collecting, storing, evaluating, aggregating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and sharing information among our affiliates both in and outside the United States and to select service providers and vendors.
A. Our Services. We analyze how our customers use our Services and use that information to evaluate and improve our Services, to research, develop, and test new services and features, and to conduct troubleshooting activities. For example:
- we communicate with you about our Services and features and let you know about our terms and policies and other important updates;

C. Web Analysis. We use certain Google Analytics Advertising Features, including Remarketing and Demographics and Interest Reporting. Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google that allows us to collect data about the traffic on the NRS Websites through Google cookies and other identifiers, which enables us, among other things, to create user segments based on demographic or interest data and to deliver relevant advertising. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of our websites and to prepare reports on the activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the data collected to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. You may be able to opt out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features through your browser ads settings or by visiting Google’s Ads Settings page.
D. NRS Apps. We engage certain service providers and vendors who use mobile software development kits to passively collect information from users of the NRS Apps. We use this data primarily to help us deliver personalized notifications and to identify you in a unique manner across other devices or browsers for the purposes of customizing advertisements or content.
4. How We Share Information
We share all the information we collect and receive with our affiliates, both in and outside the United States, and to select service providers and vendors, to help us operate, provide, improve, understand, customize, support, and market our Services, and for general, operational and administrative purposes, including maintaining your account, authenticating you and contacting you.

Some advertisements are chosen by companies that place advertisements on behalf of advertisers. These companies, often called ad servers, may place and access cookies on your device to collect information about your visit. The information they collect from our sites is in a form that does not identify you personally. This information may be combined with similar data obtained from other websites to help our advertisers better reach their targeted audiences. Targeting may be accomplished by tailoring advertising to interests that they infer from your browsing of our sites and your interaction with other websites where these ad servers also are present. If you choose to interact with specific advertisers who advertise on our products and Services, the NRS Websites, the NRS Apps, or the NRS Web Stores, the information you provide to them is subject to the conditions of their specific privacy policies. The NRS Websites, NRS Apps and NRS Web Stores also include plug-ins and widgets that may provide information to their associated social networks or entities about the NRS page you visit, even if you do not click on or otherwise interact with the plug-in or widget.
E. When You Share Information. You share your information as you use and communicate through our Services. Stores with whom you communicate may store or share your information (including your phone number or messages) with others on and off our Services.
5. Your Rights and How To Limit Sharing Of Information
You have choices about how we use and share your information and there are additional protections that may apply with regard to certain information we collect.
A. Telemarketing. Federal “Do Not Call” laws allow you to place your phone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry to prevent telemarketing calls to those numbers. To add your numbers to this list, please call 1-888-382-1222, or visit www.donotcall.gov. Most telemarketing laws allow companies to contact their own customers without consulting the Federal or State Do Not Call lists. If you would like to be removed from NRS’s telemarketing list, please contact us at 800-215-0931 or [email protected]. Please allow 30 days for your telephone number to be removed from any sales programs that are currently underway. Please note that we may still call you regarding your Services and account even if you remove your number from our telemarketing list.
B. Email, Text Messages and Push Notifications. Marketing emails you receive from us will include an unsubscribe feature usually found at the bottom of the email that you may use to opt out of receiving future marketing emails. Marketing text and SMS messages from us also contain an opt-out feature that you can use to prevent future marketing text and SMS messages from us. You may refuse to consent to receive calls and texts from NRS and its affiliates that require your consent, including autodialed, pre-recorded or artificial voice telemarketing calls. You may also withdraw your previously given consent to receive such calls and texts. You can opt out of receiving push notifications from us via the NRS Apps by going to your device “Settings” and clicking on “Notifications,” and then changing those settings for the applicable app. Please note that you cannot withdraw your consent to receive certain in app messages from us. Your ability to manage some of our Services could be limited if you withdraw your consent to receive text and SMS messages. In those cases NRS does not recommend using those Services without authorization to receive such messages.
C. Online Information. You have choices about whether certain information collected on the NRS Websites, NRS Apps and NRS Web Stores is used to customize advertising based on predictions generated from your visits over time and across different websites and apps. Similarly, many mobile devices offer controls you can set to limit the advertising use of information collected across mobile apps on your device. Please note that many opt outs use browser cookies or device controls and are specific to the device and browser you are using. If you buy a new computer, change web browsers or devices or delete the cookies on your computer, you may need to opt out again. In addition, ads you receive may still be tailored using other techniques such as publisher, device or browser-enabled targeting. You should check the privacy policies of the products, sites, apps and services you use to learn more about any such techniques and your options. You also can limit the collection of certain website information by deleting or disabling cookies. Most browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Disabling cookies may prevent you from using specific features on our sites and other websites, such as ordering products or services and maintaining an online account.

We will utilize the requested data to ensure that we can verify the requestor’s identity and where we are unable to do so, we may contact you for further information, or ask you to provide evidence of your identity prior to responding to your request.
