GIRT Mobile built the Galway Safe app as a Free app. This SERVICE is provided by
GIRT Mobile at no cost and is intended for use as is.
This page is used to inform visitors and app users regarding our policies associated with the collection, use, and disclosure
of Personal Information in the event that someone has chosen to use our Service.
If you do choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in
relation to this policy. The Personal Information that we collect is used for providing and improving
the Service. We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described
Information Collection and Use
For a better experience, while using our Service, we may require you to provide us with certain
personally identifiable information, including but not limited to SMS and location data.
We use android.permission.SEND_SMS, for physical safety / emergency alerts to be sent by SMS, and android.permission.READ_CONTACTS for adding contacts to your list of emergency contacts.
Location information is also provided to your ‘In Case of Emergency’ or ICE contacts so friends, family and in extreme cases Emergency Services can be alerted to ensure your safety. You have the option to share your location data with these parties before you first use the application. The option to share location information with the parties stated above is only possible if the option to always track location is selected even when the application is not open. This ensures that the user does not need to think about running or launching the application so user input can be minimal. It is also the case that the location information is only shared with the parties named above at certain times of the day or night. So for example it maybe the case that this is only captured between 12 midnight and 6 o’clock in the morning.
The app does use third party services that may collect information used to identify you.
We want to inform you that whenever you use our Service, in a case of
an error in the app we collect data and information (through third party products) on your phone called Log Data. This Log Data may include information such as your device Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, device name, operating system version, the configuration of the app when utilising our Service, the time and date of your use of the Service, and other statistics.

These are sent to your browser from the websites that you visit and are stored on your device’s internal memory.
This Service does not use these “cookies” explicitly. However, the app may use third party code and libraries that use “cookies” to collect information and improve their services. You have the option to either accept or refuse these cookies and know when a cookie is being sent to your device. If you choose to refuse our cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of this Service.
We may employ third-party companies and individuals due to the following reasons:
- To facilitate our Service;
- To provide the Service on our behalf;
- To perform Service-related services; or
- To assist us in analysing how our Service is used.
We want to inform users of this Service that these third parties may have access to
your Personal Information. The reason is to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf. However,
they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose other than to provide the best possible service to you.
We value your trust in providing us your Personal Information, thus we are striving
to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over
the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its’ absolute security.
