Customers who reserve housing with National through its various platforms or partner providers may be subject to a background check if required to secure the reservation. National uses secure third-party providers to facilitate a background check. National will use its best effort to advise guests reserving housing requiring a background check that a background check is required prior to guests selection of the corresponding housing option.
By providing information to us, you are representing that you are authorized to disclose such information in the manner and for the purposes being disclosed. You agree to indemnify and hold National, and its aﬃliates, oﬃcers, directors, agents, partners and employees, harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys' fees, made by any third party due to or arising out of the information you disclose to us.

In cases of onward transfer to third parties of your personal data, National is potentially liable.

We may aggregate and create non-personal information we collect under any of the circumstances described above by excluding information that makes the data personally identiﬁable to you. We may share this aggregated and non-personal information with third parties and our aﬃliates in relation to our marketing efforts, Site improvement and to enrich our products and services. We reserve the right to share aggregated and non-personal information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis.
Our Website includes a Careers feature that allows you to submit an online job application. When you submit an online application, you will be required to provide personal information, including but not limited to your name, contact information, job interests, educational and job history, and references. This information will be used by us to assess and process your application.
The online application process is hosted and supported by a third-party service provider. The Applicant Tracking System receives and stores the information you provide. It does not disclose the personal information it receives and maintains for us to outside third parties, unless otherwise required by law.
We do not share the information you provide in the online application with anyone outside of National except as we believe is required by law.
Use of Email and Marketing
We will use your email address to send a conﬁrmation and, if necessary, may use the other information to contact you for help in processing the reservation; send you pre-arrival conﬁrmation details; send you copies of your bills when you request them; and send you periodic or market research surveys.
National uses your contact information to recommend products and services that might be of interest to you, to send you marketing and advertising messages such as newsletters, announcements, or special offers or to notify you about our upcoming events.
National allows you to opt-in to receive advertisements based on your interests. If you do not opt-in, you may still receive advertisements but they will not be tailored to your interests. National also allows you to opt-in to receive communications, such as emails or text message marketing. You may be removed from any future marketing communications by responding with “unsubscribe” in the body of your request.
Cross-Border Data Transfers
Security of all information is of the utmost importance for National. National uses technical and physical safeguards to protect the security of your personal information from unauthorized disclosure. We use industry standard encryption protocols to keep all information secure. We also make all attempts to ensure that only employees and third parties have access to the personal information that they need to perform their function as it relates to the service we provide you. Nevertheless, such security measures cannot prevent all loss, misuse or alteration of personal information and we are not responsible for any damages or liabilities relating to any such incidents to the fullest extent permitted by law. In the case of a data breach, we will notify you of any loss, misuse or alteration of personal information that may affect you. We will notify relevant regulatory bodies within 72 hours of the discovery of a breach.
We also require that our third-party service providers and channel partners agree to keep all personal information we share with them conﬁdential and to use the information only to perform their obligations in the agreements we have in place with them. These third-party service providers and channel partners are expected to maintain privacy and security protections that are consistent with National's privacy and information security policies.
Data Retention and Storage
National retains your information for business purposes, for as long as your account is active, and/or as long as is reasonably necessary to provide you with our products and services. National will also retain your information as reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements. We may also retain cached or archived copies of your information for a reasonable period of time. At any point in time, you can withdraw consent and we will immediately stop processing your data.
