InPanic App Privacy Policy

Ascensus - CDSI. ("Ascensus" or "we" or "us" or "our" or other similar pronouns) takes your privacy matters very seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy ("Policy"). This Policy details how we receive, collect and use information in connection with our back-office service through the InPanic software ("InPanic App"), and other products and services provided by Ascensus (all of the foregoing, collectively, the "Services").

1. Collection and Use of Information

InPanic Application

When you install the InPanic App and register on it, you will be asked to provide us with your name and email and login password (collectively, "Private Information"). The Private Information will be stored on our servers and will only be used to:

(a) invite other users to your panic room;

(b) receive notifications sent by people your are following;

(c) correctly display the name when sent an invitation;

(d) synchronize your InPanic data across your multiple devices.

The Private Information is stored on a live database. This database does not have a "historical backup". If you delete your Private Information from the InPanic App it will be instantly marked as deleted on our servers (more about this below).

Your email address will be used for identification purposes as your InPanic user ID when sending invitations or panic requests.

InPanic App also maintains a record for each invitation sent and panic message sent. We maintain this information in order to guarantee that panic messages reach followers users even on a network loss scenario. We mantain these records for a period of no more than 2 months.

Other Services

In the event we make message boards and forums available to you (collectively, "Forums"), you will be solely responsible for the information and any other content you post on and through these Forums and should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., name, e-mail address, telephone number) on or through these Forums, such information is generally accessible to, and may be collected and used by, other users. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties, and such messages are beyond our control. We do not exercise control over any users or Site visitors, and in no way are we responsible, and have any liability whatsoever, for any collection or use of information you may disclose through the Forums. This Policy does not cover such disclosure of information. You are encouraged to exercise discretion when providing personal information about yourself in and through Forums. Please do not post any personal information on this Site that you expect to keep private.

We will not link any Personal Information, including e-mail addresses, with aggregate data of our users.

Any or all of these activities with regard to InPanic app usage information may be performed on our behalf by our services providers, including, for example, our analytics vendor(s) and our e-mail management partner(s).

2. Sharing and Disclosure of Information

We do not rent, sell, or share any information about the user with any third-parties. We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe such action is necessary to:

(a) comply with the law, or legal process served on us;

(b) protect and defend our rights or property (including the enforcement of our agreements); or

(c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or members of the public.

In order to provide you with InPanic App you have requested, Ascensus may sometimes, if necessary, share your Personal Information and usage data with trusted partner service providers and/or agents, for example: banking organizations or other providers of payment and analytical services, customer support, or hosting services. Ascensus will always require these third parties to take appropriate organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and traffic data and to observe the relevant legislation.

The following is a description of how we may share your Private Information with trusted third party partners. Should we add additional partners, we will immediately update this description:

1. We may use Apple's Push Notification Service to notify you about panic requests. If we do, the email or the name of the person in panic may be part of the message. This message is sent to Apple Inc., for delivery to your iPhone.

We may from time to time ask you to provide information on your experiences which will be used to measure and improve quality. You are at no time under any obligation to provide any of such data. Any and all information which is voluntarily submitted in feedback forms or any survey that you accept to take part in is used for the purposes of reviewing this feedback and improving the Ascensus software, products and websites.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13 we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

4. Security

We take reasonable precaution to protect Private Information from misuse, loss and unauthorized access. Although we cannot guarantee that Personal Information will not be subject to unauthorized access, we have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in place to protect Personal Information. Personal Information is stored on our servers and protected by secured networks to which access is limited to a few authorized employees and personnel. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.

5. Business Transitions

In the event that we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, Personal Information will likely be among the assets transferred. As part of such a transaction the new entity will be required to commit to the same level of protection of your Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy. If we cannot obtain such a commitment, we will not perform the business transition.

We will post a notice of any such change in ownership or control of the Private Information we may have prior to such transfer.
