The profile is designed to be seen when accessed by scanning or going to the website and entering your unique number. It is semi public so only put information in that you would want someone to see.

The Emergency Question and Answer form is designed to be emailed to first responders during a situation along with your profile. It is private and will NOT be seen when someone scans your QR Code or access's your profile via the web. You can leave anything you want blank. We recommend filling it out because if your loved one becomes lost it would be much easier to email this to first responders than to accurately answer a bunch of important questions during a stressful time. 

Remember the emergency Question and Answer form is personal information that you have entered voluntarily, If I Need Help is not using or sharing this information in any way. You have sole control of your information so be careful who you send it to or share it with, and know that you send it, or share it voluntarily and assume all responsibility for doing so. 

If you were referred to us, or had a product purchased for you by a company, agency, organization, or department and are using this account for your personal information, your account and information is still only yours, and controlled only by you and NOT for, or on behalf of this or any other company, organization, agency, or department. If you voluntarily allow the other company, organization, agency, or department to administer your information you do so for your own benefit and at your own risk.

Please do not enter your social security number, or your drivers license number in your profile, or Emergency Q&A form.

Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, If I Need Help takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.
