In general, we only collect information that allows us to provide you with our best Services. This includes, for example, simple tasks like allowing other users to see the name and picture you choose to show. It also helps us to keep our Services clear of fraud and Spam, and it allows us to get a unique understanding of what additional services may be useful to you, and all other purposes set out in this policy below.
Starting with Save Life Connect, all of Save Life Connect's core features are secured with end-to-end encryption: Save Life Connect calls, one-on-one messages, group messages, media sharing and secondary devices. This means that the encryption keys are stored only on the clients' devices and no one, not even Save Life Connect itself, has access to them.
Scope and consent
Before you start sharing good vibes, it’s important you understand that by using our Services, you give us consent to collect, use, disclose, and retain your personal information and other information but we will never read or listen to the content you are sharing privately. You can be sure that we will only use your information as described in this Policy.
Information we collect
First of all, we want you to be assured that we do not read or listen to the content of your messages and/or calls made privately via Save Life Connect and we do not store those messages once they have been delivered to their destination (which by average takes less than one second). If for some reason, the message wasn’t delivered to its destination within up to 2 weeks, it will be deleted from our servers regardless. We collect the minimum information required to achieve the purposes set out in this Policy (see below),and you have the ability to limit such collection, as specified below under "Your Choices":
(b) Social Media Information: If you sign in to your Save Life Connect account through third-party social media sites like Facebook or Twitter, you agree to give us on-going access to your personal information on such sites (e.g., your public profile, friend list, accounts you follow or who follow you, your email address, birthday, work history, education history, interests, current city, and video viewing). We may receive certain information about you which is stored on social media sites if users of those sites give us access to their profiles and you are one of their friends or connections, depending upon your settings on those sites.
We will receive other information (e.g. the content you have viewed and interacted with) from your use of our App. When you interact with public accounts on our Service, we may obtain information about those. In addition, we collect information about the accounts you have visited and the content you have viewed in order to improve the relevance of our Services.
(c) Information from Other Sources: The information we collect may be combined with information from outside records (e.g. demographic information and additional contact information) that we have received in accordance with the law.
(d) Additional Information: We may collect additional information if you access our App through a specific device (e.g. your mobile device’s unique identifier; information about your device’s operating system, your browser, browser or operating system language; your wireless network, and your mobile carrier). We may also collect your WPS location data – you can choose whether to allow this by changing your geolocation tracking settings.
Save Life Connect Blood Donations: Our Save Life Connect Out service allows connect with the blood donors near your location. If you want to use Save Life Connect Blood Donations, you’ll need to create a “Save Life Connect Account” by selecting a password, and providing certain personal information (e.g., name, email, etc).
Save Life Connect ID Registration: A Save Life Connect ID allows you to connect to your Save Life Connect account from different devices, using your ID and password only. If you want us to create a Save Life Connect ID for you, we will use information you provided in the registration process (e.g., name, email, password, phone number),as well as your IP address to do so.
Uses and Retention
The information we collect from you ensures you can use the Save Life Connect Service and can be contacted on Save Life Connect. Your information is retained for as long as it is needed and helps us in our mission to constantly improve our Services and provide you with new experiences. As part of this mission, we may use your information for the following purposes:
(a) Make our service available: We use your Registration and Account information to (i) register you for the App and create your User Account for Save Life Connect; (ii) create your profile and make it visible; (iii) create your Save Life Connect ID; (iv) provide customer service, give you information about your account, and respond to your requests; (v) personalize your experience by providing content on the Service, including targeted advertising of Save Life Connect services and other 3rd party services that we believe may be of most interest to you; (vi) indicate which of your contacts is already a Save Life Connect member and notify you when your contacts become active on the Service (vii) display the name of the contact as it appears in your address book when a call is received on the Service, and (viii) sync your contacts with Save Life Connect running on Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android tablets, iPads and Windows Tablets. If you deactivate your Save Life Connect account, it will delete the address book from our servers (more about this below),quickly and permanently. Otherwise, we keep your contact information for as long as you use the App
(b) Provide Interesting Offerings to You: As part of our Services Save Life Connect may use your information to send you message notifications about offerings from our Services or from third parties (as long as you agreed on Save Life Connect or elsewhere to receive information from that third party),which we believe you would find interesting. Sending a message to a Public Account, subscribing to a Public Account or following a Public Chat on Save Life Connect will allow admins of that Public Account to send you notifications and personal messages. If you do not wish to receive such notifications, you may adjust your account settings to decline them or opt-out at any time from receiving further notifications. We may also use WPS location data to provide location-based offerings to you from our Service or third-party advertising. You will be asked to allow the use of your location data before Save Life Connect provides such offerings, and you may also adjust your account preferences to disable the use of your location data at any time.
(d) Communicate With You: We may use your information to contact you (via message or other means) to maintain the App, including your Save Life Connect User Account, to comply with your stated communication preferences or to provide updates about other Save Life Connect services.
Unless otherwise specified, we retain information as long as it is necessary and relevant for us to achieve the purposes referred to above or to enable us to comply with our legal data protection retention obligations.
We want you to know that we do not sell your personal information. We only share your personal information with third-parties outside of Save Life Connect, for the purposes listed above, in the following circumstances:
(a) The Save Life Foundation, Inc Family: We may share the information we collect about you with the Save Life Connect foundation family and its affiliates and subsidiaries. The information may be disclosed to: (i) provide joint content and our services (e.g., registration, coordination of membership accounts between the Save Life Connect corporate family, transactions, analytics and customer support); (ii) help detect and prevent potentially illegal acts, violations of our policies, fraud and/or data security breaches.
(b) App Providers and Other Third-Parties: We may disclose your information to service providers and other third-parties under contract who help with providing you our Services or other services provided by third-parties via our Services (such as, but not limited to, fraud and spam investigations, payment processing, site analytics and operations, providing special partnership features in our service, advertising – either on an aggregate non identifiable basis, or using unique identifier which can't trace back to you). They are required to secure the data they receive, so that your personal information is guarded.
(d) Legal and Law Enforcement: We may disclose your information to law enforcement, governmental agencies, or authorized third-parties, in response to a verified request relating to terror acts, criminal investigations or alleged illegal activity or any other activity that may expose us, you, or any other Save Life Connect user to legal liability.
(e) Change of Control – New Owners: We may share your information with another business entity, if we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business, or are involved in a transaction with similar financial effect. In such a situation we would make reasonable efforts to request that the new combined entity or other structure follow this Policy with respect to your personal information. If your personal information was intended to be used differently, we would ask the new entity to provide you with prior notice.
Information You Share Publicly
Some of our Services allow you to share information with others on a public basis. If you post information on a public feature of our Services or through social media sites, plug-ins or other applications, don’t forget this information is public on our Services and, depending upon your privacy settings, may also become public on the Internet. We can’t prevent or control further use of this information so please make sure you only post information that you’re happy to be seen publicly. We may also further use such public information you share, for various reasons, such as improving our service and providing you with relevant content, and analyzing trends.
At this stage, whatever you share publicly is available to the entire Save Life Connect community. If you wish to remove a certain piece of content you have shared in the past, you can do that by deleting that content. It will be removed from our services but may remain on local devices of some users (assuming they have chosen to save it).
We want you to have control over how you communicate. That’s why, for example, you can choose not to share your photo, opt not to receive location-based messages along with many other additional options, which are available within the app.
Every now and then, Save Life Connect may send you notifications about administration and operation of the Service (for example, about your transactions, policy changes, technical issues, etc.). We may also send notifications about offerings by Save Life Connect or third-parties, that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive such notifications, you may adjust your system settings to decline them (if you're using iOS systems) or opt-out at any time from receiving further notifications by not using our service.
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Here are a few additional important things you should know about our use of tracking technologies (e.g., cookies, HTML-5 stored technologies):
We offer certain features that are available only through the use of tracking technologies.
We use both session and persistent tracking technologies. Tracking technologies (e.g., cookies) can either be persistent (i.e. they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e. they last only until you close your browser, or until you exit the App). You are always free to decline tracking technologies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of the App and Website. We suggest you refer to the help section of your browser, browser extensions, or installed applications for instructions on blocking, deleting, or disabling tracking technologies such as cookies.
We encode and protect the tracking technologies that Save Life Connect sets so that only we can interpret the information stored in them.
You may come across tracking technologies/cookies from our third-party service providers that we have allowed on our App to assist us with various aspects of our App operations and services, such as Google Analytics.
You also may encounter tracking technologies from third-parties on certain pages of websites that we do not control and have not authorized. (For example, if you view a web page created by another user, there may be a cookie placed by that web page.)
Accessing, Reviewing, and Changing Your Personal Information
We know that security is important to our users and we care about the security of your information. We maintain technical, physical, and administrative security measures to protect the security of your personal information against loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration. Some of the safeguards we use include firewalls, data encryption, physical access controls to our data centers and information access authorization controls. We need your help too: it is your responsibility to make sure that your personal information is accurate and that your password(s) and account registration information are secure and not shared with third-parties.
Our Services are not intended for children under the age of 13. Therefore we do not knowingly collect personal information via our websites, applications, services, or tools from anyone under 13.
We operate internationally and provide our Services to Save Life Connect users worldwide allowing them to communicate with each other across the globe. That means that your personal information may need to be processed in countries where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in your home country. We store and process your personal information on our computers in the United States, Asia, Europe (including Russia) and in other locations and use service providers that may be located in various locations outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). In such cases, we will require the recipient to provide appropriate protection for the personal information disclosed to it in compliance with applicable data protection laws.
Updates to this Policy
From time to time, as our services evolve, we may update this Policy. You agree that we may notify you about material changes in the way we treat personal information by placing a notice on the App. Please check the App frequently for updates.
