Risk Band LLC (hereafter “RiskBand,” “we,” or “us”) is a business to business provider of two-way emergency response communications systems (hereafter the “Services”) serving a variety of industries from banking to healthcare and utilities. The Services include the ARIES Platform software, and wearable devices that communicate with the software. Our clients, who license our devices and software products, either directly input or authorize individuals to input your data into our system, and our clients control all data we handle. Our relationship to your information, therefore, is as a data processor, and as such we depend on the direction of our clients to dictate our treatment of any of your personal data we may handle.
We have a small subset of information that we handle for our own employees and/or data that we have directly collected for marketing purposes from our website at www.riskband.com (the “Site”); and we are the data controller for that information.
When you complete a user profile on the ARIES Platform, or a RiskBand client with whom you are associated creates a user profile on your behalf, you are required to provide your contact information (login name, first name, last name, and organization affiliation). It is optional for you, your authorized representative, or the authorized administrator at our client, to provide additional information (such as health, medical, life-saving and activity information, email address, phone number, gender, citizenship, date of birth, physical address, and photos of you) and unique identifiers. Some RiskBand clients may opt to create anonymous user profiles that will not contain any personal identifying information. Please contact our client with whom you are associated to understand which types of data they maintain in their user profiles. RiskBand requires you and our clients to take reasonable steps to ensure that information that you or our clients provide to us is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Additional note: Please refer to Section III.i. regarding product support and marketing to users of our Services.
RiskBand will use information only in ways that are compatible with the Services for which it was collected. We utilize the information to fulfill the terms of any agreement you or our client has with us, and operate our business. When you use our device, and press the emergency button to initiate an emergency alert, the device and the ARIES Platform collects your precise location data using GPS and cellular signals. Your associated organization’s ARIES Platform administrator, as determined by our client, uses the Services to obtain or retrieve information that is relevant to your then-current location. This information is used to identify you as a user of a specific device and to support emergency response services provided to you by either RiskBand partners or our client. We are the ARIES Platform Administrator for our small subset of employees using RiskBand.
International Transfer of Data: Because RiskBand may provide Services in various locations throughout the world, it may be necessary to transfer your information internationally. In particular, your information will be transferred to and processed in the United States and wherever you access our Services based on the type of license our client has procured, either Domestic (United States), International Sets (specific countries), or International Global (global service). By using our Services, you acknowledge that the data protection and other laws of other countries may provide a less comprehensive or protective standard of protection than those in your country or the country you are in while using our Services.
We may use aggregated data to inform potential clients of the robustness of our product and service offerings. For example, we may report that we have a certain number of device users or that we have processed a certain number of emergencies in particular jurisdictions.
RiskBand may disclose aggregated data to facilitate the financing, securitization, insuring, merger, sale, assignment, bankruptcy, or other disposal of all or part of our business or assets.
RiskBand may use and disclose information as it believes reasonably necessary: to comply with applicable law or respond to legal process (for example, a court order, search warrant, or subpoena); in response to lawful requests by public authorities (such as to meet national security or law enforcement requirements); to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our Terms and Conditions, or in other circumstances in which RiskBand has a good faith belief that its products or Services are being used in the commission of a crime or that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the safety of you or another person; or to protect our rights and property.
When you provide, or authorize others to provide, any personal information, RiskBand in turn has permission to provide the information to emergency response services, to RiskBand partners, and to our client, in support of the delivery of Services. These companies are authorized to use your information only as necessary to provide the Services to you.
We will retain information we process on behalf of our clients for as long as needed to provide Services to our client. We will also retain this information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
Our client may elect to enable your Device to receive Urgent Messages and Emergency Action Messages. If you wish to opt-out of these messages, your request should go to your employer, our client. If you are using the product as a RiskBand employee, you should see the contact information at the end of this policy.
