Who We Are
NIRI values individual privacy and we want to give our website visitors the opportunity to know what information we collect about them and how they can limit the use of personally-identifiable information beyond the purposes for which they first provided it. At all times, however, NIRI reserves the right to disclose information where required by law or to comply with valid legal process (such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order), to protect NIRI's rights or property, including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of NIRI or substantially all of its assets, or during emergencies when safety is at risk.
