Swivel is designed to put your safety first and to help keep you out-of-harms-way.  The app delivers unmodified alerts from Police, Sheriff and Fire in real time, or near-real time, right to your mobile device.

The information used to generate the alerts and notifications is from verified publicly available data sources and trusted data sources such as: calls to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), a police/sheriff dispatch center, a fire/rescue dispatch center, police/sheriff operation centers, shift commanders, or from law-enforcement investigations acting in good faith.

In some instances, the information shared is later determined to be inaccurate or false.  Communities including first responders are frustrated with misinformation and false alarms. Swivel shares the view with the authorities that it’s in the public interest to share this information quickly with minimal delay.

Furthermore, despite employing industry-leading best IT practices and technology, no one can prevent all cybercrime.  Swivel does use multi-layered cyber defenses, including next generation firewalls that are professionally managed and updated in real-time as new malicious software code is detected.

Swivel provides its notifications without warranties of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to warranties of title or implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose with respect to the quality, content, accuracy, completeness, freedom of interruption, freedom from computer viruses, freedom from errors or omissions.

Swivel is not responsible for any special, indirect, incidental or consequential damages (regardless of whether they were foreseeable) that may arise from the use of, or inability to use Swivel.

Any action taken by your use of Swivel is done at your own discretion and risk. You will be solely responsible for any damages incurred by you or others.

Swivel is a messaging transmission medium and, as such, is not responsible for the content transmitted. Unlike Social Media peer-to-peer applications, all messages originate from the authority of jurisdiction. Any and all queries regarding any content transmitted via Swivel must be directed at the participating authority. Swivel does not vet, modify or comment on any of the content transmitted on the app.
