Please note that a chat room will be registered in the name of the Organization with which the User who initiated the chat room is associated; and this information will be displayed to all Users who participate in that chat room, regardless of the Organization they are associated with.

Your Organization has certain rights with respect to your Data (as defined below) and is solely responsible towards you for the privacy of your Data. In addition to the foregoing, in the event that you communicate in an External Organization’s chat room, then, the chat room, and the data transferred therein and parts of your Data may be available to, monitored and managed by such External Organization and members of such External Organization. In such cases, NURO does not assume any direct or indirect liability or obligation towards you with respect to the maintenance or use of your Data, and any claim, complaint, request or demand that you may have with respect to your Data, should be made only vis-a-vis the relevant Organization. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, NURO will not respond to any claim, complaint, request or demand made by you. You hereby waive any claim that you may have against NURO, and any claim that the above deprive you of an adequate remedy.

  4. We may use cookies (a string of information that can be stored on your computer, if your web browser is set to permit storage of cookies) to help us learn about how you use the Software and to enhance your online experience.
  5. If you are a registered user of NURO and have supplied us with your email address, you may occasionally receive emails from us relating to your account, or with respect to updates on new features or other changes in the Software, or for customer service purposes, or otherwise as shall be required in order to enable your use of our Software. NURO may also contact you regarding third-party inquiries as described in the Terms of Use and this Privacy Policy.
  6. NURO may be required to provide you with support services, which may be provided through phone, email, online chat or otherwise by NURO. Phone conversations and online chat sessions may be recorded and/or monitored and we will use such data in the same way as we use your Data, as described in this Privacy Policy.
