Nationwide Medical Licensing (NML) will collect personal information about Staff for various purposes, primarily relating to establishing and managing the employment or other work relationship between NML and its human resources. NML shall identify the purposes for which personal information is collected at or before the time the information is collected.
NML may also collect personal information from other sources including previous employers, work associates, personal references or other third parties to whom the Staff member has given permission to disclose the information.
NML has a responsibility to inform Staff of the policies and practices for the management of personal information and will make these policies and practices understandable and easily available.
Consent requirements may vary depending upon circumstances and upon the type of personal information that NML intends to collect, use, or disclose. When determining whether a Staff member’s consent is required, NML will consider both the sensitivity of the personal information and the purposes for which NML will use the information. If consent is required, NML will determine the form of consent that is appropriate. Consent may be expressed, implied, or deemed and may be obtained in person, by phone, by fax, by mail, e-mail, or via the Internet. Subject to our legal rights and obligations, NML may, from time to time, seek a Staff member’s consent to collect, use or disclose personal information for a new purpose.
