PRODUCT CONDITIONS OF USE

Accessibility

The Client agrees to be bound by the Conditions of Use set out in this section and Parts 1 to 8 (inclusive) as relevant given the level of Service requested, accepted by Crisis24 and paid for by the Client in advance, during the Term of these Conditions of Use.

The Client shall procure that any Designated Person(s) shall fully comply with the Conditions of Use of these Conditions of Use as if they were similarly bound as the Client.

The Services set out in Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 are subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions of the clauses in Part 6, Part 7 and Part 8 (and the relevant Part itself), and cover the Designated Person(s) during the Term of these Conditions of Use.

 

Part 1 | ONLINE PORTAL

Access for the Client to Crisis24’s traveller tracker and travel security management service via online portal (Portal) and mobile app (App) respectively. The Portal provides country risk intelligence drawing on a range of open and privileged sources. Designated Person(s) can access security and geopolitical intelligence on current and future threats worldwide. Specifically, the Services provide the following key features:

A. Portal

1 Global Map

The global map feature of the Portal gives the Client the ability to view a global map (Global Map) of:

  • Designated Person(s).
  • The Global Map is based on updates from the Client’s Designated Person(s) via the App through the means of live tracking or manual check-ins.
  • The country risk ratings for each country.
  • Country Alerts issued.

2 Risk and Country Intelligence

  • Travel risk profiles on approximately 500 global locations, including around 200 countries/territories and around 300 cities
  • Security alerts 24/7/365 delivered via email where applicable, based upon Designated Person(s) proximity to the alert.
  • Access to a range of alerts which typically totals over 10,000 per year.
  • Pre-departure security intelligence.

3 Messaging

The Portal has the following messaging capabilities:

  • The ability for Crisis24 to send automated emails to Designated Person(s) (Country Alerts) containing details of emerging security situations in the country in which they are travelling.
  • The Portal enables the Client to securely contact Designated Person(s) by phone, email or SMS on an individual or group basis via the Portal for two-way communications.

 

B. App

The CloseCircle App is available on iOS devices, from version iOS 9 and above, Android devices, from Android OS Lollipop 5.1 and above, and has the following key functionality

  • The ability for the Client’s Designated Person(s) to communicate 2-way with the Client rapidly via the App and SMS.
  • The ability to update a Designated Person‘s contact details and settings via the App.
  • Live track a Designated Person‘s location and movements if tracking is enabled in the App by the Designated Person(s).
  • Tracking is based on the concept of significant movement which maximizing battery optimisation. Tracking signals are sent when someone moves and not when they are stationary in order to reduce battery usage. When a Designated Person is moving relatively slowing, e.g. walking, a tracking signal is sent approximately every 500 metres. When a Designated Person is moving more quickly, e.g. a train or car, a tracking signal will be sent approximately every 5 minutes. In between tracking signals, a Designated Person’s location on the portal will not have changed and hence will only be accurate within a 5 minute radius if that Designated Person has moved. Whenever a Designated Person presses Check-in within the App the Designated Person’s location within the Portal is updated with a highly accurate location, within approximately 10 metres. From a safety perspective, this tracking method gives Crisis24 team what they need and optimizes battery usage vs accuracy. However, Clients may want a more accurate ongoing location fix than this, at the expense of more rapid battery usage, and so Crisis24 provides the ability for Clients to increase or decrease the frequency of tracking signals themselves depending on whether they want to prioritise accuracy vs battery usage.
  • Receipt of localised email alerts and incident updates within a Designated Person‘s proximity.
  • Manually confirm or update location using the ‘Check In’ function.
  • Access to country specific overviews and general traveller advice.

Part 2 | GLOBAL OPERATIONS CENTRE 24/7 SECURITY SUPPORT

Crisis24’s Global Operations Centre will use reasonable endeavours to provide:

  • 24/7 Operations Centre access for Client’s Designated Person(s) offering:
    • Pre-departure security advice relating to proposed travel and security arrangements.
    • Emergency travel and security advice.
    • Escalation of emergency situations to provide deployed Crisis Response assistance and evacuations under the terms of CloseCircle.
  • Real-time monitoring (24/7/365) of alerts being sent by CloseCircle in relation to the proximity of the Client’s Designated Person(s).
  • Proactive monitoring (through the use of various tools) of emerging threats and incidents.
  • Welfare communications to Designated Person(s) in HIGH risk countries and above; if required by the Client.
