We take your privacy seriously and work hard to protect it. This privacy statement provides information about the personal information that Inti, Inc. collects through the Bugle app, and the ways in which Inti, Inc. uses that personal information.
The Bugle app provides a private experience such that, if you always check in by the return times you indicate prior to activating an "Activity", and you elect not to share your itineraries, your emergency contacts will not see your Activity information or personal details. When you add a new contact to the app, Bugle will send an overview email to that contact describing the service, unless you disable this feature in the Settings section of the app.
We protect your data on the backend very carefully, too, and will never share your personally identifying information with third parties without your permission, except as outlined below. In the event that you fail to check in to Bugle in time to de-activate an Activity, your profile and activity details will be automatically sent to the emergency contacts you selected in order to enable them to assess your need for assistance. Your emergency contacts will receive an alert message that contains all of your Bugle profile information and the information specific to the activity for which you are overdue. Your emergency contacts will be encouraged to share this information with parties such as the police, park authorities, search and rescue organizations, etc. if you cannot be located or if they suspect you might be in immediate danger.
Your use of the Bugle app constitutes your permission to send your profile and activity information to your emergency contacts if and when you are overdue from an activity, and/or you choose to share your itineraries during Activity creation. This information is vital to ensure that they are better equipped to find and help you if necessary.
Since emergency alerts are transmitted via e-mail and SMS, Inti, Inc. does not retain control of this information once it has been distributed to your emergency contacts, and therefore cannot guarantee its security after an alert message has been sent. If you have concerns about how your information is treated once it has been transmitted to your emergency contacts, you should coordinate directly with those persons. Furthermore, you should only list people whom you trust—and who know you well—as emergency contacts.
