The App does not collect any Personally Identifiable Information.
(Personally Identifiable Information is any data that could potentially identify a specific individual, or any information that can be used to distinguish one person from another and can be used for de-anonymizing anonymous data.)
The App allows you to search for and sort resources/locations based on your current location and to receive critical Alerts that are based on your current location.
For this feature to work, you must grant the App permission to read your current location in the background. ONLY your most recent location is stored on our servers. As soon as your current location is updated, the previous location is deleted and no history of your movements is kept.
For quality control purposes and to improve our service, we keep statistics on how many people each alert reaches. This data is summary statistical information and never contains any information that could be used to identify you personally or track your movements.
Your App contains eGuides, which may in turn contain checklists that have been created for your convenience. The information you enter into these checklists is stored on your mobile device ONLY, and cannot be read or used by anyone but you.
The App allows you to fill in Field Reports.
The information you enter into a Field Report will be emailed to a County official for review using your phone’s email client, and your personal email provider.
It will be not be stored on our servers. Also, once sent, there will be no copy left on your mobile device.
The App logs technical information for quality control, bug reporting and troubleshooting, and ensuring data integrity.
We also collect data on the usage of App features so that we can optimize the user experience.
This information is technical, statistical, and most of all completely anonymous. It contains nothing that can be used to potentially identify a specific individual, or to distinguish one person from another or to be used for de-anonymizing anonymous data.
All communications between the App and our servers are secured at all times using HHTP Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and are encrypted both on the mobile device and our servers.
Wherever we state that information is stored on our servers, the servers are hosted with Amazon, and all basic infrastructure security is provided by Amazon. We ensure application security and privacy, and submit to a voluntary yearly privacy audit by a 3rd party.
