Our services are based on the crowdsourcing concept. The locations of automated external
(AEDs) are provided by members of the public just like you who value the access to these devices.
like others before you, the information of these devices provided by you will assists others after
in their times of distress. We hope that the details of these AED locations will be clear and
so that others after you will be able to find them in the shortest time possible.
As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we're using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users.
We collect information in two ways:
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve
them, to develop new ones, and to protect Health Visuals and Crowdsav users. We also use this
information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant CPR feedback and AED
We may replace past names associated with your Crowdsav Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Crowdsav Profile information, such as your name.
When you contact Health Visuals, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services.
Health Visuals may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If
information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we
to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal
information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Health Visuals unless one of the following circumstances apply:
We work hard to protect Health Visuals and our Crowdsav users from unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. In particular:
This is information which you provide to us which personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information, or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information by Health Visuals.
You may access some of our services by signing up for a Crowdsav Account and providing us with some personal information (typically your name, email address and a password). This account information will be used to authenticate you when you access Crowdsav services and protect your account from unauthorized access by others. You can edit or terminate your account at any time through your Crowdsav Account settings.

Every computer connected to the Internet is assigned a unique number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. Since these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country from which a computer is connecting to the Internet.
These include the Langtitude and Longtitude data submitted by your mobile devices fitted with the necessary hardware. The data will be able to pinpoint your location on a map at a specific point in time and place only when the feature of the Crowdsav platform requires to perform its task.
Like most websites, our servers automatically record the page requests made when you visit our sites. These “server logs” typically include your web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.
