The new National Fire Operations Reporting System (NFORS) exposure tracking module is now available as an app from the Google Play store and the Apple App store. With the mobile app, any fire fighter, paramedic or officer can access and use the exposure tracker which serves as a personal database providing a detailed history of work and exposures in a private, encrypted and secure online environment.
The International Public Safety Data Institute (IPSDI) has created this privacy notice to explain how we use information that you may provide while visiting our website and to demonstrate our firm commitment to Internet privacy. The IPSDI may modify this policy from time to time so we encourage you to check this page when revisiting this website.
The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website. The type and amount of information received depends on how you use the site.
When you visit the IPSDI website, we automatically obtain information from you about the name of your Internet service provider, the browser and type of computer you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. For example, we use this information to track which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole. We may track the pages you or any individual visitor may look at during a visit to our site.
The IPSDI provides Web forms so you may provide information to engage in IPSDI activities. Any information we collect, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address, type of request you are making and any additional information you provide, is collected and stored by the IPSDI or it’s contracted partners. The information is used to fulfill your request and track aggregate information about usage of these features. The IPSDI makes every effort to ensure the secure collection and transmission of your sensitive information using industry accepted data collection and encryption methodologies, such as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
The IPSDI may exchange limited personally identifiable information (such as name and e-mail address) with partner organizations. The NFORS website will not post your personal contact information, including e-mail address, street address and phone numbers, without your consent.
We use a secure server for processing payments and financial information. Information is transmitted using industry standard secure socket layer (SSL) technology.
People who subscribe to e-mail lists via the website will receive periodic updates from the IPSDI by regular mail, fax or e-mail. You may opt out of receiving future information via e-mail by using the unsubscribe procedure specified on the e-mail message.
This site contains hypertext links to other sites. The IPSDI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. We use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption to protect the transmission of information you submit to us when you use our secure online forms. You are on a secure page when the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Microsoft Internet Explorer become locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just “surfing.” All the information you provide us through these forms is stored securely off-line.
We use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, and we also maintain internal policies to protect user information offline. All user information is restricted in our offices, unless it is shared with approved IPSDI vendors and independent contractors, in which case reasonable measures are undertaken to assure the confidentiality and privacy of that information. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.
Please note, however, that no system can be kept perfectly secure; attacks may come. If you send us an e-mail, you should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication includes sensitive information like your bank account, charge card, or social security number, and you prefer not to use one of our secure online complaint forms, contact us by mail or by telephone rather than by e-mail.
If your personal information changes (such as your mailing address), you may update your record online or you may contact us and we will endeavor to provide a way to update that personal data provided to us.
