7.2 Cross-Border Data Transfers
When conducting business, working on NF projects, or implementing new processes or systems, an operation may require the transfer of personal information to other entities or third parties that are located outside of the NF operation’s country of business. While permissible data transfer mechanisms are defined by the applicable law or regulation, examples include:
i. a data transfer agreement with the party who will access or obtain the personal information;
ii. notice to and/or approval from a country’s local data protection authority; or
iii. notice to and/or consent from the individual whose data is to be transferred.
8.Consent and Control
Consent is often referred to as an individual’s choice to “opt in” or “opt out” of NF’s use of personal information and is usually obtained by a “check box” or signature confirming that the individual understands and agrees to the processing of his or her personal information. At times, express written consent from the individual may be required based on the information-processing activity. NF receives consent from individuals before:
i. collecting, using, or processing their personal information, including sensitive personal information, in certain ways or sharing their personal information with any third party;
ii. transferring the individuals’ personal information outside of their country of residence; or
iii. using or placing web cookies on an individual’s computer or other electronic devices.

NF may conduct an owner verification check to ascertain the identity of the requester.
