Search & Rescue

Privacy Policy

Turismo dos Açores has developed a new facility, called “Emergency Request”, in order to respond faster and more effectively to requests for help.

This feature is activated initially by email, followed by a phone call. In order to receive send the email you are required to have internet access. If you are not connected to the Internet the request for assistance will not be sent.

Your personal data, as well as your location will be made available to the Civil Protection Services only as they are in charge of responding to your emergency request once it is activated.

Turismo dos Açores ensures that personal and location data will only be used in case of emergency and solely for the purpose of responding more quickly and effectively. Once the emergency situation has been addressed, information will be stored in a database accessible only by the Civil Protection Services and Associação Turismo dos Açores.

Should you have any question regarding the terms and conditions of ownership and use of the data entered into the VisitAzores App, please contact us using the Feedback section on the website.

Should you not agree to the terms and conditions of ownership and the use of the data entered into the VisitAzores App, please abandon the emergency request.
