Statement of Privacy

The Resuscitation Council US, the non-profit of which Heartsight is the flagship initiative, is committed to protecting your privacy. This Statement of Privacy applies to the Heartsight website and governs data collection and usage at all the Resuscitation Council US sites and services. Heartsight is a general audience website, intended for users of all ages. The personal information of all users is collected, used, and disclosed as described in this Statement of Privacy. The Resuscitation Council US encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from Heartsight so that you can understand how those websites collect, use, and share your information. We are not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on websites outside of the Heartsight and Resuscitation Council US.

Collection and use of your personal information

You are not required to register with Heartsight or provide information about yourself in order to access and use the features of the Site. However, you may choose to register with Heartsight by providing information about yourself (e.g., name and email address). If you so choose, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current, and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Site’s registration form. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 18 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Site, with or without registering.

As a charitable, non-profit website, Heartsight collects personal information, such as your name, home or work address, telephone number, or email ID. Your personal information is used to process donations and payments for events as requested. It is possible that Heartsight may also use personal information to inform you of other products or services available from the Resuscitation Council US and its affiliates. Heartsight may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

The Resuscitation Council US does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. The Resuscitation Council US may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your personal information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.

We may hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as processing transactions or performing analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies with the personal information they absolutely need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

The Resuscitation Council US does not ask for sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations.

The Resuscitation Council US may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the Resuscitation Council US; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of the Resuscitation Council US, including its website; or (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Resuscitation Council US or the public.

Control your personal information

The Resuscitation Council US is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, we store the personal information you provide on computer systems with limited access that are located in controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information (such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we use a secure payment gateway so your information is protected.

Changes to this statement

The Resuscitation Council US will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. If there are material changes to this Statement or in how the Resuscitation Council US will use your personal information, the Resuscitation Council US will prominently post such changes prior to implementing the change. The Resuscitation Council US encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how the Resuscitation Council US is protecting your information.
