Privacy Policy

For Radar

This Privacy Policy describes how Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (“ANTHC,” “we,” or “us”) collects, uses, and discloses information when you use our RADAR services. RADAR provides a web- and mobile-based tool for testing Internet speeds at consumer and community locations.
This ANTHC Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what information we collect, how we use that information, third parties with whom we may share the information, and why we collect it. If you use our RADAR application, then you agree to the collection and use of information as set forth in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, do not access or use the RADAR App or Website.
This Privacy Policy applies only to data collected via our RADAR mobile application (“RADAR App”) and our RADAR website at https://speedtest.exactlylabs.com (“Website”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to third party products or services used in connection with the RADAR App or Website (“Services Providers”), which are governed by each Service Provider’s privacy policy.

What Information Does Radar Collect?

When you use the RADAR App or Website, we may collect analytics information by automated means, such as the following: the number of times a user opens or closes the RADAR App; the IP address of the device used to connect to the RADAR App or Website; latitude and longitude coordinates as provided by the user and their browser or mobile device; the number of times an Internet speed test was performed; speed test results for each test taken; crashes; time on pages; page views; number of clicks on certain pages; site navigation patterns; device platform usage (android vs. iOS); operating system version; and answers to questions or questionnaires provided through the RADAR App and Website.
We may integrate third party software with our RADAR application. For example, RADAR uses the Measurement Lab (M-Lab) NDT7 tool to perform Internet speed tests, and OpenStreetMap™ provides RADAR’s mapping functionality. M-Lab collects unprocessed Internet speed test data and makes the results of tests available to the public. OpenStreetMap™ collects certain analytics information which it uses to improve the functionality and performance of their mapping products. Please review M-Lab’s Privacy Policy at https://www.measurementlab.net/privacy/, and OpenStreetMap’s Privacy Policy at https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy.
We may engage Service Providers to provide analytics services for the RADAR App and Website. These Service Providers may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers, and other technologies to collect information about your use of the RADAR App and Website, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages or in mobile apps, links clicked, and conversion information. This information may be used by us and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content, and better understand your online activity

How Do We Use The Information We Collect?

Internet speed test results and geolocation data are used to create maps of available Internet speeds, and raw data may be analyzed by data scientists, state and federal policy makers, and community organizations involved in broadband research and delivery.
We will use the RADAR App and Website analytics information to troubleshoot, improve performance and functionality, and development enhancements and new features to RADAR functionality. To the extent practicable, this analytical information is anonymized and aggregated with other information so that you or your device may be identified.

When Do We Share Information?

We may share and disclose information we collect about our users in the following limited circumstances:

We will share Internet speed test results and geolocation information with researchers involved in a Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA)-funded project in order to support data analysis, mapping, and validation (HRSA Grant GA540183-01-00).

We may share information with third party Service Providers, vendors, and consultants who we employ to perform tasks on our behalf. These companies include app analytics companies (e.g., Google Analytics), data collection vendors (e.g., M-Lab), and application developers (e.g., Exactly Labs), and others.

Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal information if we believe the disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law, including lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information that cannot reasonably be used to identify you.
