Navigator Systems Ltd is the controller with regard to your personal information collected by Navigator Systems, and the laws of England apply.
Please note that in order to use our software and websites, you authorize Navigator Systems to transfer your personal information across national borders and to other countries where Navigator Systems and its partners operate, including the United States. The privacy protections and rights of authorities to access your information in these countries may not be equivalent to those in your country. We will only transfer your personal information to these countries where permitted to do so by law and we will take steps intended to ensure that your personal information continues to receive appropriate protections.
For more information, please see the section “Does Navigator Systems transfer my personal information across national borders?”
When you register to use a Navigator Systems app (either as a full user or as a trial user) or website, or contact us for support, sales information or other offerings, Navigator Systems collects information that identifies you. This includes information such as (but not limited to) your name, company name, email address, telephone number or payment information. We may also sometimes collect other information that does not identify you, such as which types of apps you’re interested in. Some of this information is required and other information is optional. To help keep our databases current and to provide you the most relevant content and experiences, we may combine information provided by you with information from other sources, in accordance with applicable law. For example, from these sources, we may learn about the size, industry, and other information about the company you work for.
Navigator Systems apps and websites
We collect information about how you use our apps and websites, including when you use a desktop app feature that takes you online (such as uploading a database or downloading an update). We may collect information sent by your browser or device to our servers whenever you visit a Navigator Systems website or use a Navigator Systems app. For example, your browser or device may tell us your IP address (which may tell us generally where you are located) and the type of browser and device you used. When you visit a Navigator Systems website, your browser may also tell us information such as the page that led you to our website and, if applicable, the search terms you typed into a search engine that led you to our website. Navigator Systems may collect information about how you use our websites and apps by using cookies and similar technologies, and our servers may collect similar information when you are logged in to the app or website. Depending on the app or website, this information may be anonymous or it may be associated with you
Also, we may use automated systems to analyze your content using techniques such as machine learning in order to improve our apps and websites. This analysis may occur as the content is sent or received using an online feature of a Navigator Systems app or website, or when the content is stored on Navigator Systems or partner’s servers.
Navigator Systems app activation and automatic updates
When you activate your Navigator Systems app or when you install updates to the app, we collect certain information about your device (including your IP address), the Navigator Systems app, and your product serial number. Some of our apps include features that connect to our servers or our partners’ servers to regularly validate your license and offer you the ability to install updates to the app. We may keep track of information such as whether the update was successful or not. We may use the information collected through activation or app updates to validate your copy of the app and confirm that it is genuine and properly licensed.
Navigator Systems emails
Emails we send you may include a technology (called a web beacon) that tell Navigator Systems whether you have received or opened the email, or clicked a link in the email. If you do not want us to collect this information from Navigator Systems marketing emails, you can opt out of receiving Navigator Systems marketing emails.
Navigator Systems online advertising
Navigator Systems advertises online in a variety of ways, including displaying Navigator Systems ads to you on other companies’ websites and apps. We collect information such as which ads are displayed, which ads are clicked on, and on where the ad was displayed. Learn more about Navigator Systems’ advertising practices.

Navigator Systems social networking pages and social sign-on services
Navigator Systems has its own pages on many social networking sites (for example, the HireTrack NX Facebook page). You may also be able to sign in to a Navigator Systems app or website using a social networking account, such as a Facebook account. We may collect information when you interact with our social networking pages or use these sign-on features. Learn more about Navigator Systems’ social networking practices.
Navigator Systems uses the information we collect about you in a number of ways, such as:
- Providing you with the Navigator Systems apps and websites for which you have registered, as well as any services, support, or information you have requested.
- Better understanding how our websites and apps are being used so we can improve them and engage and retain users.
- Using automated systems to analyze your content using techniques such as machine learning in order to improve our services. This analysis may occur as the content is sent, received, or when it is stored.
- Diagnosing problems in our apps and websites.
- Tailoring a website, app, or Navigator Systems ad to your likely interests.
- Sending you business messages such as those related to payments or expiration of your support or subscription.
- Sending you information about Navigator Systems, new app releases, special offers, and similar information.

- Reducing fraud, software piracy, and protecting you as well as Navigator Systems.
- As further described for a specific Navigator Systems app or website (including partner website used to provide services such as technical support).
Navigator Systems works with companies that help us run our business and allow us to offer enhanced services; such as being able to provide support over longer hours by using our resellers’ support teams in different timezones. These companies provide services such as delivering customer support, processing credit card payments, and sending emails on our behalf and some of this functionality may be hosted on systems outside of the UK. In some cases, these companies have access to some of your personal information in order to provide services to you on our behalf. They are not permitted to use your information for their own purposes.
Navigator Systems may also share your personal information:
- When you agreed to the sharing.
- With our resellers and other sales partners if you are a business customer and agreed to receive Navigator Systems marketing communications. Note that we do not share personal information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.
- When we are required to provide information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other applicable law or legal process.
- When we have a good faith belief that the disclosure is necessary to prevent or respond to fraud, defend our apps or websites against attacks, or protect the property and safety of Navigator Systems, our customers and users, or the public.
- If we merge with or are acquired by another company, sell a Navigator Systems website, app, or business unit, or if all or a substantial portion of our assets are acquired by another company. In those cases your information will likely be one of the assets that is transferred.
We may share or publish aggregate information that doesn’t specifically identify you, such as statistical information about visitors to our websites or statistical information about how customers use our apps.
There are several places within Navigator Systems websites and apps that allow you to post comments, upload pictures, or submit content for others to see. Sometimes you can limit who can see what you share, but there are some places where what you share can be seen by the general public or other users of the app or website. Please be careful when you share your personal information. Do not share anything you wouldn’t want publicly known unless you are sure you are posting it within an app or website that allows you to control who sees what you post. Please note that when you post messages on certain user forums on our websites and apps, your email address or name may be included and displayed with your message.
We understand that the security of your personal information is important. We provide reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security controls to protect your personal information. However, despite our efforts, no security controls are 100% effective and Navigator Systems cannot ensure or warrant the security of your personal information.
Your personal information and files are stored on Navigator Systems computers, servers and the servers of companies we hire to provide services to us. Your personal information may be transferred across national borders because we have servers located worldwide and the companies we hire to help us run our business are located in different countries around the world.
We may transfer your personal information across national borders to other countries in compliance with applicable laws.
When Navigator Systems transfers your personal information from the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland to a non-EEA country, we rely on one or more of the following legal mechanisms: the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield, Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield, Standard Contractual Clauses, and your consent.
If the content or data that you store on Navigator Systems apps or websites contains the personal information of individuals from the EEA , you agree that you have the legal authority to transfer the personal information to Navigator Systems, including the transfer to countries such as the United States where the privacy protections and rights of authorities to access personal data may not be equivalent to those in the EEA.
Under the law of some countries, you may have the right to access the information Navigator Systems holds about you, correct mistakes in that information, and to delete personal information that we no longer have business reasons for retaining. Many of our websites and apps allow you to edit your personal information by accessing the “my account,” “my profile,” or a similar feature of the app or website you are using. Likewise, you can delete files or photos you have stored in our websites and apps by logging in and using the deletion functions they make available.
To request that we remove your email address from our marketing database, deactivate your Navigator Systems account, or provide you a copy of your personal information, please email your request to email@example.com. Please note that we need to retain certain information about you for legal and internal business reasons, such as fraud prevention. We will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide you or your employer with the websites and apps you are eligible to use and as needed to comply with our legal obligations and enforce our agreements.
The Navigator Systems family of companies and companies we hire to help us market our websites and apps on our behalf may use your information to provide you with information and offers related to Navigator System. You may opt-out of marketing information at any time.
If you have a privacy question or concern, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also tell us to stop sending you marketing emails by clicking the unsubscribe link included at the bottom of Navigator Systems marketing emails.
In some cases, Navigator Systems needs to send you “transactional” emails relating to normal business operations. For example, we may email you to inform you that your subscription is expiring or in response to a support issue. You cannot opt out of these emails.

Web beacons and embedded scripts
Web beacons and embedded scripts are other technologies that we use in our websites, as well as in some of our emails and ads.
Web beacons (or “tags”) are bits of programming code included in web pages, emails, and ads that notify Navigator Systems (or the companies that help us run our business) when those web pages, emails, or ads have been viewed or clicked on.
Navigator Systems marketing and advertising practices
We may reach out to you in different ways, for example, to tell you about a new Navigator Systems app we think you’d be interested in, or to show you how to use a particular feature we think you may enjoy. However, you can also let us know that you’d rather not hear from us with this type of communication.
Navigator Systems email, telephone, and postal mail marketing
If you agree to receive email, telephone, or postal mail marketing from us, we try to make it useful for you based on your likely interests. Please let us know if you’d rather not hear from us. If you are a business customer and agreed to receive Navigator Systems marketing communications, we may share your information with our resellers and other sales partners. We do not share personal information about consumers with third parties for their own marketing purposes.
Tailoring Navigator Systems apps and websites to your interests
When you are using a Navigator Systems app or website, we may show you content, offers, or recommendations that are based on your likely interests.
Navigator Systems interest-based advertising
Navigator Systems runs online ad campaigns that display ads for you based on your likely interests. We may learn your likely interests when you use our apps and websites. We also acquire information from other companies that gives us more insight about your likely interests based on your activity on non-Navigator Systems web pages and mobile apps. These types of ads are often called “interest-based ads” or “online behavioral advertising.” We use ad platforms to display Navigator Systems ads on non-Navigator Systems web pages and in non-Navigator Systems apps.
The ad platforms we hire to display these ads set their own cookies, web beacons, and other identifiers to measure the effectiveness of these ads and to understand your likely interests. We and our ad platforms learn information such as which Navigator Systems ads are shown to you, which ads are clicked on, and on which web page or in which app they were displayed.
The ad platforms we hire may also use technology that helps them identify devices and browsers that are being used by the same person. We may use these ad platforms to display ads to you on non-Navigator Systems websites or apps, which are tailored to you based on your use of our websites and apps on your various devices and browsers.
At this time, Navigator Systems websites do not respond to browser “Do Not Track” signals.
Navigator Systems may collect information about you in connection with social networking sites in several ways, including:
- When you sign in to a Navigator Systems app or website using a social networking account, such as a Facebook account. These social networking sign-in features may also enable a Navigator Systems account to be created more easily by using the information you provided to the social networking site
- When you make information publicly available on your social networking page
