Our Safe Communities App is designed to give Us Personally Identifiable Information in order to conduct our Business Services. You must provide us with such information in order to use Our Safe Communities App. Such Personally Identifiable Information is disclosed by Us to designated individuals in the Communities which we serve. Law enforcement agencies may have access to such Personally Identifiable Information.  Users of our Safe Communities App and Website should anticipate that third parties will receive Personally Identifiable Information as described in this Privacy Policy.  We do not warrant, or guaranty that Personally Identifiable Information will remain private.  Registered Users assume the entire risk of using Our Safe Communities App to disclose Personally Identifiable Information.

How our Safe Communities App Works

Communities with Our Business Services. The Safe Communities App is intended to assist personnel responsible for maintaining security in the Communities with whom We serve to perform the security function.  The Safe Communities App permits Us to do background checks on Vendors and employees and agents of Vendors who seek to provide products and services to the Communities and residents of the Communities. The Safe Communities App also permits Geo-location Tracking of Registered Users through the use of GPS and other technology. Our Safe Communities App permits Us and certain individuals within the Communities to have specific information on when and where a Registered User is located within the particular Community as well as a history of such Registered User’s movements within such Community. Law enforcement agents may have access to such Registered User’s location and movements. While Our Safe Communities App programming is designed to limit Geo-location Tracking to within the boundaries of the particular Community in which the Registered User is providing goods and services, Geo-location technology data is such that no assurance can be given to Registered Users that Our Safe Communities App will not record movements within a reasonable distance outside the Community.

Users must first register to use Our Safe Communities App.  To begin the registration process, Users must first download the Safe Communities App to their mobile device from Our Website, Apple’s App Store, or the Google Play Store. Registration is only through the use of Our Safe Communities App.  We will issue you a personal identification number (“PIN”) to enter into the Safe Communities App to begin the registration process. You are solely responsible for maintaining security of the PIN and any password and/or account information. This may include the User’s mobile phone, which enables others to identify the phone’s unique ID and location, other mobile devices, text, texting, e-mails, photographs, all forms of video, and other information that may or can identify a Registered User.  Our Safe Communities App is designed for the free exchange of information supplied by Registered Users between and among Us and the Communities we serve.  Registered Users are solely responsible for the Personally Identifiable Information disclosed to Us in the registration process and when using Our Safe Communities App and/or Website.

Registered User's unrestricted authorization and consent for Us and the Communities to use Personally Identifiable Information and Geo-Location Tracking for Our Business Services

The use by a Registered User of Our Safe Communities App and/or Website is deemed such Registered User’s unrestricted authorization, and consent for Us and the Communities, Our respective employees, agents, clients, customers, successors, and assigns to the use of a Registered User’s Personally Identifiable Information and/or Geo-location Tracking information and to distribute and disclose such Personally Identifiable Information to third parties, including law enforcement agencies and in judicial proceedings, using any manner, method and technology (“Technology”) We deem appropriate in Our sole and absolute discretion, whether such Technology currently exists or in the future may exist, including, but not limited to electronic, digital, print, video and audio. Such Personally Identifiable Information and/or Geo-location Tracking information may be real-time and/or historical.
