We are providing our App to you solely (1) on the terms and conditions in this Agreement and (2) on your acceptance of and compliance with them. When we provide you with these terms, we also provide a checkbox for your acceptance of these terms. When you check the “accept” box, you:
If you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement, we will not and do not license our App to you and you must not download it. We do not grant any license (whether expressly, by implication, or otherwise) outside of a legitimate agreement to these terms. We grant you no rights concerning our App if you have not lawfully acquired a legitimate authorized copy of it.
Our App is not an emergency service or medical service. Simply put, our App helps you to quickly create a text message with information that is helpful to 911 dispatchers. You may then choose to send this message through your default SMS and your mobile carrier’s text-to-911 network. We hope to help you save time in situations when you don’t have time to spare.
Please note that it is always best to call a 911 operator in the event of an emergency, as textto-911 networks are not available in every location nation-wide through your mobile service provider. We provide our App to help you create emergency text messages to send through your SMS in situations when making a phone call may be difficult or otherwise impracticable. As noted below, we do not and cannot warrant the accessibility, functionality, and/or responsiveness of your mobile carrier, its own or any other SMS 1 services, text-to-911 networks, or emergency services.
When you accept this policy, you consent to how our App collects and processes the information you provide through it. This policy is important, and we hope you will take time to read it carefully.
Our App has a clear and simple purpose: to help quickly create and push text for an emergency text message containing helpful details for 911 dispatch to your default SMS so that you may send it to 911 using your mobile carrier’s text-to-911 network.
To provide this service to you, the only information our software accesses is (1) what you provide it when you download and install the software (your name, phone, age, and gender) and (2) your location information if, through the App’s settings, you allow the App to access it. We do not store or host this information on our servers. Rather, all of this information is stored locally on your phone. When you choose to use our App to help create an emergency message, our software takes the information that you have locally stored through the App and pushes it to populate a text field in your default SMS. This includes using Google Maps to create a link to your approximate location. Then, you may choose to send this text through your mobile carrier’s text-to-911 network.
Although our App collects a limited amount of information, you can find controls to manage the information you provide us in our App’s settings and through your mobile device’s operating system.
Any information that is stored on your phone through our App is either information that you directly provide when you sign up or consent to provide through your mobile carrier (i.e. your GPS location). You may edit the information you store in the App at any time; and you may remove your consent to let our software access your location data through the settings on your phone at any time. We do not have access to this information because we do not store it on our servers. The only time that this information is shared with another party is when you choose to (1) push this information to Third-Party services such as your default SMS and Google Maps when you choose to use our App to create text for an emergency message and (2) choose to send this message over your mobile carrier’s text-to-911 network using their services.We do not disclose any of your information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. However, we are ultimately not responsible for any third-party’s privacy policies, including those of the emergency services receiving your text, and how they will treat your information.
When you store your information in our App or choose to use our App to create text for a message using your information, we treat this as a consent for us to use the information you’ve provided only for the purposes we’ve described here.
If you would like to delete the information that you store on your phone through our App, you may do so at any time by either editing the information through our App or deleting the App.
Sensitive Information. We do not collect sensitive Personal Data in connection with the Product. Please do not send us any sensitive Personal Data, such as information related to racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, health, biometric or genetic characteristics, criminal background, or trade union membership.
Our App is directed towards general audiences, and we do not expect to or knowingly collect any information from children under the age of 13 through our App. If you are a parent of a child under the age of 13 and are aware of your child’s use of our App, please notify us at email@example.com.
To our users in California: Although we do not provide information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes, we want you to be aware of your rights concerning this type of information under California Civil Code Section §1798.83. This law permits users of our App that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of Personal Data to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
