RDS only collects information with your consent and only the minimum amount of personal data necessary to facilitate the use of In Case of Crisis. All data is securely handled, being encrypted in-transit and fully encrypted with registered cryptographic libraries while in storage. Specifically:
- In Case of Crisis uses individuals’ email addresses as their usernames.
- Optionally, a user may enter their mobile phone number if they’d like to opt-in for SMS text messaging services.
- Upon submission of Incident Reports within the In Case of Crisis application, a user’s information may be contained within that report, but only if they’ve allowed for their account information to be accessed for report submission and the report will specifically state the information which is being collected, such as their Location.
THE INFORMATION COLLECTED:
RDS collects information in several different areas:
REGISTRATION INFORMATION: You, the User, if you choose to set up an account, must provide at a minimum, a personally- identifiable email address as the username along with a secure password within In Case of Crisis registration process. We use each email address to uniquely identify accounts within our system. After setting up an account, each user is given the option within the User Settings to enter other personally-identifiable information (such as phone number, your phone’s country code, and the name identifier you wish to be referred to) to assist with Collaboration services and notifications.
PROFILE INFORMATION: When using the In Case of Crisis Services, the Clients of our services provide certain other personal information and content – such as emergency event information and responder’s contact information for each event relevant to a Crisis Plan. This information will only be displayed to other Users who have your organization’s security access controls, a validated user account and password with an optional PIN to download the Crisis plan.
COOKIES: When you use the In Case of Crisis Services, the Services may send one or more session-only cookies (small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters) to your computer. In Case of Crisis uses these session-only cookies to remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your current use of the In Case of Crisis website.

These server logs may include information such as a mobile device identification number and device identifier, web requests, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, and pages viewed.
USE AND DISCLOSURE:
Personal information will not be released to third parties without a User’s explicit permission. In Case of Crisis may provide information to third parties in aggregate with other information, which does not allow you to be identified or contacted (“Aggregate Information”). For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of users of our site and the activities they conduct while on our site. An example of this would be if RDS informed a county or state official that “30 percent of our users live in the Southeast”.
