DWI Defense App Privacy Policy (iOS)

This privacy policy governs your use of the software application “DWI Defense” (“Mobile App”) that was created by Benjamin Law Firm LLC for use on mobile devices within the state of Missouri. The Mobile App is designed to provide information about what to do when pulled over for a potential DWI or DUI, send a text message to a specified contact, record audio when pulled over for a potential DWI or DUI, and email recordings created by the Mobile App.

What information does the Mobile App obtain and how is it used?

User Provided Information

The Mobile App may obtain an emergency contact phone number from you. This number is used to allow you to notify your emergency contact of your estimated location and the possibility that you are being pulled over during a traffic stop. The Mobile App may access the mobile device’s address book in order to facilitate your input of the emergency contact phone number, but the Mobile App will not transfer or store the contents of your address book. The emergency contact is not provided to us and is stored locally on your mobile device. The provision of this emergency contact phone number is optional. However, please keep in mind that you may not be able to use some of the features offered by the Mobile App if you do not provide it. You may use the Mobile App to create audio recordings. These audio recordings are stored locally on the mobile device, are your sole responsibility, and are not automatically transferred to us. The audio recordings are stored in an unencrypted format to facilitate your ability to transfer them to parties of your choosing.

Automatically Collected Information

The Mobile App may collect certain information automatically, including, but not limited to, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device’s unique device ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the Mobile App. In addition, the Mobile App will access the current charge level of your mobile device’s battery in order to ensure that data is not lost when your device shuts down, due to a low battery.

Does the Mobile App collect precise real time location information of the device?

When you use the Mobile App, we may use GPS technology (or other similar technology) to estimate your current location in order to provide it to your emergency contact during a traffic stop. We do not collect data regarding your location nor do we share your current location with other users. We may share non-precise location information with Google Analytics and Facebook, but only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.

If you do not want us to use your location for the purposes set forth above, you should turn off location services for the Mobile App through your mobile device settings.

Do third parties see and/or have access to information obtained by the Mobile App?

Yes. We will share your information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.

We may disclose User Provided and Automatically Collected Information:
as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;
when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;
with our trusted services providers who work on our behalf, do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement;
if Benjamin Law Firm LLC is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified through the Mobile App of any change in ownership or uses of this information, as well as any choices you may have regarding this information;
to analytics companies as described in the section below.

Changes

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time for any reason. We will notify you of any changes to this Privacy Policy by displaying a notification within the Mobile App. You are advised to consult this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes, as continued use is deemed approval of all changes.
