services. We only use such data anonymously and in the aggregate.
This information helps us determine what is most beneficial to you
and how we can continually create a better overall experience for
you. We may share this information with our partners, but only in
the aggregate, so they may also understand how you use the NexC

such as your name, address, e-mail address and gender.

This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, for

Our disclosure of user information
1. We do not and will not sell or rent any of your personally identifiable
information to any third party. We aggregate personally identifiable
information and disclose such information in aggregate to advertisers
and for other marketing and promotional purposes only. In these
situations, we do not and will not disclose to these entities any
information that could be used to identify you personally. Certain
information, such as your credit card number and bank account number,
are not disclosed in aggregate at all.
2. Throughout the Site, you are identified through your e-mail
address. As a result, you may disclose your e-mail address to other
third parties that might send to you unsolicited e-mail and be able
to personally identify all of your activities on the Site.
3. We will, as required by the due process of law and the applicable
rules and regulations in Hong Kong at any time, cooperate with all
the statutory regulators, law enforcement agencies and appropriate
inquiries, and with all third parties seeking to properly enforce
their intellectual property or other rights.
4. We may offer features on the Site, where we will by necessity,
need to provide some personal data to the third party offering such
services. To the extent that said third party requires your personal
information to enable them use or provide their service, we will
notify you of the specific information that we may provide to such
third parties. Before you use the service, you should evaluate whether
you will accept the terms and conditions of the third party service;
and therefore irrevocably and unconditionally grant us the right
to pass on your information to the third party.
5. Due to the existing regulatory environment in Hong Kong, where
there is little or no relevant legislation except for the Data Privacy
Ordinance, we cannot ensure that all of your private communications
and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed
example (without limiting the foregoing), we may be forced to disclose
information to the government, regulatory bodies or third parties
under certain circumstances or third parties may unlawfully intercept
or gain access transmissions or private communications. Further,
we can (and you irrevocably authorize us to) disclose any information
to law enforcement, regulatory bodies or other government officials,
as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate.
Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect
your privacy, we do not in any way expressly or implicitly promise,
and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information
or private communications will remain private.

at the time of collection we will notify users both via email and
