Collection of your Personal Information
You are not required to provide the Personal Information that we have requested, but, if you chose not to do so, in many cases we will not be able to provide you with our products and services or respond to any queries you may have.

This may include but not limited to your contact information including email address, demographic information such as your postcode, a unique username and password, or provide sensitive information in the recovery of your lost password or other information relevant to customer offers.

iStaySafeWearable Watch, Generation 2 Watch & K.I.T
Our devices allow the parent/carer/employer to monitor their family member’s/employee’s (individual wearing the watch) activity, receive regular location updates and alerts all the time the User’s device is turned on and in network coverage. This information is NOT shared with others outside of the monitoring app user unless you have given permission to do so for example to a third party monitoring company used by us.
The iStaySafe App collects your unique user identifier and precise or approximate location information as determined through data such as GPS and WiFi positioning. During the following scenarios the watch will not send location details: no coverage, no data service on the SIM in the watch, or if you turn the watch off or the battery goes flat.
Family members or any other person/s that you or a third party monitoring company have assigned as ‘emergency contacts’ will receive alert notifications regarding your activity when you arrive or leave assigned location points and when the SOS is activated.
In delivering our services, we may use the Personal Information to assist with our technical and/or customer support (for example we may use your Personal Information to verify identity, assist with identification of the Users, and to determine appropriate Services) or to allow us to perform diagnostics on your device including historical and tracking record reports to analyse the performance of your device.

The TicTocPhone and iStaySafeAlert Service allows iStaySafe Admin App user’s to monitor their family members activity, receive regular location updates and alerts all the time the user’s device is turned on and the TicTocPhone or iStaySafeAlert app is installed on the User’s phone. This information is NOT shared with others outside of the monitoring app user. In the event a mobile device monitoring application is used between an employer and employee, the access of Personal Information will be between the employer and the employee. However, the employee may turn off the tracking and other features when required.
The TicTocPhone & iStaySafeAlert Apps collect your unique user identifier and precise or approximate location information as determined through data such as GPS and WiFi positioning when you have Location Settings turned on in mobile settings. During the following scenarios the phone will not send location details: no coverage, no data service on the phone, flight mode or if you uninstall the app.

Emergency contacts will receive alert notifications regarding your activity when you arrive or leave assigned location points. Also, when the SOS is activated, real time tracking is turned on or off and on an Android phone, when the Sudden Impact Alert is triggered during real time tracking.
