PRIVACY STATEMENT



SECTION 1 - WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?

The HAL-ES Project does not store user location data. We take privacy very seriously and only sample location data in order to determine proximity to your closest hospital(s) with your permission.
With your permission– We temporarily obtain your GPS coordinates to determine your present location, after which the coordinates are destroyed. If you do not consent to the usage of GPS, the service will be partially functional except for Proximity Search, Directions, and Suggested Hospitals (barring any account holds or issues).

SECTION 2 - CONSENT

How do you get my consent?
When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, perform a search, verify your EMS Status, etc., we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only.
If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.
How do I withdraw my consent?
If after you opt-in, you change your mind, you may withdraw your consent for us to contact you, for the continued collection, use or disclosure of your information, at anytime, by contacting us at contact@hal-es.org

SECTION 3 - DISCLOSURE

We may disclose your personal information if we are required by law to do so or if you violate our Terms of Service.

SECTION 4 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.
For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.
In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
