We may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including response times, download errors, length of visits and page interaction information.
We may monitor and record telephone calls, and keep a record of them for quality control,
training, and administration purposes.
How we use your information
We may use your personal data and organisation data to :
- respond to any email enquiries and complaints we receive from you;

- ensure the content of the Website and Website Services is fit for the purpose for which it was set up and to develop the experience of its users; monitor compliance with and enforce our Website terms and conditions or our data licensing terms;
- if you have consented, to enable selected third parties to contact you.

We are committed to protecting your privacy, and we share your personal data with other organisations only as described below:
- NSI may share information internally;
- We will provide your personal data to third party suppliers to the extent that they need the data to perform their functions and for no other purpose.
- If you have expressly given us permission, we may share your information with third party organisations so they may contact you directly for the purposes to which you have consented (for example, where you have opted in to receive third party marketing information).
