What Information Is Collected?
STI owns or otherwise controls the servers that process and store PII and any other content ("Content") that You publish, display, or otherwise make available to Peabody Fire Alert in any form.
STI also automatically receives and records information on Our server logs from Your browser, including Your IP address, cookie information and the page You request. You can choose not to provide Us with certain information, but then You might not be able to take advantage of many or all of Our features.
Should You include Subscriber Account Info that includes information about any adults, children, or other persons, whether related or unrelated to You, You take full legal responsibility for including or not including that information as part of Your Subscriber Info in the Database.
STI does not review or verify Subscriber Account Info provided by You. We do however reserve the right to review any information that may be brought to Our attention for reasons of data anomaly, or any other reason.
STI may use aggregated Subscriber Info for a variety of external and internal purposes, such as preparing Peabody Fire Alert usage reports or performing system maintenance. Any such information shared with third parties will be aggregated in a manner that prevents any PII from being identified or associated with a particular Subscriber.
How Is Such Information Used?
STI receives PII from Subscribers for the express purpose of making it available to Public Safety Agencies or other Clients which have contracted with STI for access to the Peabody Fire Alert Database in the event of a 911 call, emergency, or other purpose.
Is The Information Shared or Disclosed?
a) If sharing Your information is necessary to execute a specific request by You or a Client (e.g. the Subscriber Account Info You entered to help facilitate a more effective emergency response ). In these specific cases, STI attempts to ensure, including through the use of Confidentiality Agreements, that third parties will not retain, share or store any PII except to provide the specific Services requested by You. Specific instances of permitted disclosure of PII include:
(i) In the event a 911 call is placed from any of the locations associated with a Subscriber Account (or a non-911 call is made to a Public Safety Agency from any of the locations associated with a Subscriber Account and is then routed into a 911 system), and provided that the receiving Public Safety Agency has contracted to access Peabody Fire Alert Services and technology, Your Subscriber Account Info may be displayed on the dispatcher’s computer or relayed to emergency responders or others.
(ii) Once Your Subscriber Account Info is passed to local Public Safety Agencies, STI no longer has control over the transmission of the information, and it may be conveyed verbally over an unsecured radio or transmitted in some other way to emergency responders or others.
(iii) In the event a Public Safety Agency uses the Peabody Fire Alert Database to send Alerts to Subscribers in their jurisdiction. Any such alert may be initiated by a public safety agency or other client at their discretion. Once a public safety agency initiates any such an alert, you may attempt where appropriate to reply.
(iv) In the event a Public Safety Agency uses the Peabody Fire Alert Database query tools, and Your Subscriber Account Info includes an address within the querying Public Safety Agency’s response jurisdiction, and a portion of Your Subscriber Account Info matches the Public Safety Agency’s query criteria, and if You have elected to participate in this portion of the Peabody Fire Alert Services via opting in to the “Extended Access Options” via Your Subscriber Account, Your Subscriber Account Info will be displayed in the search results presented to the Public Safety Agency.
b) STI believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply or enable compliance with (i) any law, regulation, or legal obligation (ii) a judicial or criminal proceeding, action, or investigation, (iii) a Client's internal proceedings or investigations for alleged violations of the Client's policies or codes of conduct, or (iv) a court order or legal process served on or otherwise applicable to STI or a Client; (b) to enforce the Terms of Service that govern Your use of Peabody Fire Alert; (c) to protect and defend the rights, property or personal safety of a Client, STI, the wireless carrier or Internet Service Provider providing access to the Services, or other members or the public; or d) protect against legal liability.
c) As We develop Our business, We might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, PII may be part of the transferred assets. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer or successor of STI may continue to use Your information as set forth in this policy.
e) If You elect to use one or more third party applications that may now or in the future interoperate with the Peabody Fire Alert Services, those applications may upon Your election be given access to data (which may include PII) stored in the Database and STI’s systems generated in connection with Your use of STI’s Services. Please remember that STI is not responsible for the policies, practices, actions or inactions of third party application providers receiving Your PII, including without limitation the disclosure or use of PII by such third party, and STI shall have no liability arising from any action or inaction of any such provider as it concerns Your PII or information or otherwise. In connection with Your use of any such third party applications, please review carefully the applicable privacy policies of each such third party application provider to become familiar with their policies and practices as it concerns Your data and information.
f) STI, like many businesses, sometimes uses other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When We employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
How Is Such Information Used?
STI may store or archive snapshots, or a then-current profile and PII associated with a Subscriber, as it was presented to a Client in the event a call is placed and routed to a 911 system, or such Client queries the Peabody Fire Alert Database based upon the Subscriber’s opt-in via the Subscriber Account Extended Access Options for a period of up to 2 years (or longer where otherwise required).
How Is Such Information Accessed and Controlled?
In the event that You have volunteered PII, You may correct or amend that information by logging in and editing Your Subscriber Account Info.
You may terminate Your use of the Peabody Fire Alert Services at any time. Should You decide to terminate the Service, none of Your PII will be released to Public Safety Agencies in connection with any subsequent 911 call from any location associated with Your Subscriber Account from the time Peabody Fire Alert receives Your service termination request.
STI reserves the right to suspend or disconnect Your Peabody Fire Alert Subscriber Account in accordance with the reasons outlined in Our Terms of Service.
How is Such Information Secured?
No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is, however, 100% secure. Therefore, while We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your PII, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.
Peabody Fire Alert and other STI Services are not intended for or directed to persons under the age of 18 without parental consent. Any person who provides their information to STI represents to Us that they are 13 years of age or older. If STI learns that a Peabody Fire Alert Subscriber is under the age of eighteen (18) and does not have parental consent, steps may be taken to remove the Subscriber's PII from the Database and restrict the individual from future access to the Services.
Any registration by, use of or access to the Website or Services by anyone under 13 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of the Peabody Fire Alert Terms of Service.
