How We Share Your Personal Data
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you; for example, we use Google Cloud to host data collected from your mobile device. Unless we tell you differently, our agents do not have any right to use the Personal Data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Disclosures to Protect Us or Others
We may access, preserve, and disclose your Personal Data with third parties for legitimate business purposes, or to comply with legal obligations. For example, we may share Personal Data when we believe doing so is required or appropriate: (i) to comply with law enforcement or national security requests and legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; (ii) to protect your, our or others’ rights, property, health, or safety; (iii) for public health reasons; (iv) to enforce SafeMap’s policies and contracts; (v) in connection with an investigation or prosecution of suspected or actual illegal activity; or (vi) if we, in good faith, believe that disclosure is otherwise necessary or advisable.
You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of us or our assets may continue to use your Personal Data only as set forth in this policy.
Anonymized and Aggregated Information
We may anonymize your Personal Data so that you are not identified personally, and we may use and disclose derived and aggregated insights from such anonymous data in a number of ways, including research, public health analysis, and any other legally permissible purposes.
We Do Not Sell Your Personal Data
We, also, will not sell and have not sold within the past 12 months the Personal Information of minors under sixteen (16) years of age to non-affiliated third parties without affirmative authorization.
Data Security and Retention
We seek to protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access, use and disclosure using appropriate physical, technical, organizational and administrative security measures based on the type of Personal Data and how we are processing that data. For example, the Services use industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to allow for the encryption of Personal Data you provide to us. You should also help protect your data by appropriately protecting and limiting access to your device. Although we work to protect the security of your account and Personal Data we collect from you, please be aware that no method of transmitting data over the Internet or storing data is completely secure. We cannot guarantee the complete security of any data you share with us.
To the maximum extent allowed by applicable law, you agree and acknowledge that SafeMap will not be liable or responsible if any information about you is intercepted, accessed, and/or used by an unintended recipient. If you have reason to believe that the security of your communications or Personal Data has been compromised, please notify us immediately using the contact information below.
We retain Personal Data for as long as you have an open account with us or for no longer than is necessary to provide you with our Services. Those periods are also based on complying with applicable data protections laws, applicable legal and regulatory obligations, resolving disputes or collecting fees owed, or as is otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, rule or regulation. We may further retain information in an anonymous or aggregated form where that information would not identify you personally.
Personal Data of Children
Certain mechanisms may allow you to send web browser signals, known as “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signals, indicating your choice to disable tracking on the App. We do not respond to browser DNT signals at this time and we may not be aware of or able to honor and respond to every such mechanism. More information about “Do Not Track” is available at www.allaboutdnt.org.
Third parties, other than our service providers (such as our website analytics provider), do not have our permission to track which websites you visited prior to and after visiting our website.
