Your privacy is critically important to us. At KYSAFE ("KYSAFE", "we", "us", "our"), we follow these fundamental principles:
- We don't ask for personal information unless absolutely needed. (What is asked for is very minimal.)
- We don't share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop or operate the Application, or protect our rights.
- We don't store personal information on our servers or the offsite servers of the third-party service providers we use to provide the Application service unless required for the on-going operation of the service.
KYSAFE as an organization is part of the Kentucky Education and Labor Cabinet, Department of Workplace Standards, Division of OSH (Occupational Safety and Health) Education and Training. KYSAFE operates a mobile Application (the "Application"), on both Apple and Android platforms that helps keep users informed of pertinent safety and health information. It is the policy of KYSAFE to respect the privacy of the Application's users ("you", "your") regarding any information collected through the Application.
Non-Personally Identifying Information
KYSAFE collects, or may have a third-party service provider collect, non-personally identifying information of the sort that mobile applications typically make available, such as the type of device using the Application, the operating system, location information, and aggregated user statistics. For instance, KYSAFE may monitor the most popular features of the Application. KYSAFE’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how users utilize the Application. From time to time, KYSAFE may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing or disclosing to third parties a report on trends in the usage of the Application or of mobile applications including the Application.
Personally Identifying Information
Almost no personally identifiable information is collected by KYSAFE for the use of the KYSAFE Application. Registration requirements for the Application are a name (this can be any name the user chooses), an email address, and a phone number (phone number being optional). A password is also required to log onto and access the Application. No banking information, credit card information, social security numbers, specific addresses, etc. will ever be asked for. The Application is free and is not used to sell any products. The Application is a simple informational tool for its users and only used as such.
Sharing of Personally Identifying Information
KYSAFE uses a third-party provider to maintain and oversee the KYSAFE Application. What little information is collected for access to the Application (a name, email address, optional phone number) the third-party Application provider does have access to. However, this information is only used to maintain functionality of the Application for the end user. None of this information is sold or used in any way other than to ensure usability of the Application for the end user.
Use of Phone Numbers and Push Notifications
The KYSAFE Application uses provided phone numbers to send occasional Push notifications to the user’s phone. These notifications are primarily used to alert the user of new information that has been added to the KYSAFE Application and may include a link to take the user directly to the newly posted information. Push notifications may also be sent to alert users of problems with the Application if/when they occur.
Protection of Information
KYSAFE takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect the minimally collected personally identifiable information against unauthorized access, use, alteration, loss, or destruction.
Cookies are not used for this Application.
Neither KYSAFE nor any third party engages in the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services when you are accessing or using the Application.
Though no information posted on the Application would be considered harmful to children, the Application is not directed and should not be available to children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect any kind of personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under the age of 13, do not use the Application or otherwise provide us with personal information. If we become aware that such information has been collected, we will immediately delete such information. If any parent or guardian learns or otherwise becomes aware of a child under 13 years of age using the Application or otherwise providing personal information to us, please contact us.
