App and Website Terms and Conditions
The Ok Away App and Website are provided for the purpose of helping family and friends stay better connected and safer while apart. Once the app has been downloaded, members can then add other people and you will be able to view each other’s mapped G.P.S location.
Although Ok Away can be used to connect with people locally, it has been developed with the International traveller in mind. Members can view each other’s phone battery charge and local time at their destination. Members can also add upcoming trips through the app for followers to view and their followers will receive alerts when they arrive, depart or are late for these destinations.
Through Ok Away members can also add world places and they will be alerted whenever any of their followers arrive or leave places such as airports, accommodation, tourist attractions, home, work and more.
With safety in mind Ok Away provides a record of unlimited mapped history for all members and smart notifications for low phone battery and inactivity. Ok Away also provides government travel warnings based on a members location or upcoming travel itinerary. They will also receive these alerts for friends or family they are following on the app. Smart notifications can be switched off through the Ok Away app.
Ok Away has incorporated the Missing Pages Initiative through our app. Missing Pages was launched as a social enterprise, through our Founder’s previous entity, Blackbook Traveler.
Families can now log missing family or friends through the Ok Away App or Website. These reports must be accompanied by a genuine police report or media coverage link regarding the missing person. Once verified the photo and details of the missing traveller will appear on the Ok Away Website and App Community maps. All Ok Away members in the location of the missing traveller will receive a notification with details of the person missing.
Through our website we provide a collection of Travel Safety Products including a travel personal safety alarm on key ring, a travel engagement ring, St Christopher I.D necklace and an RFID Credit Card Holder.
The Ok Away App, Website and Travel Safety Products are intended to provide travellers with information and resources that may assist in planning safer travel. Ok Away should not be considered a replacement for undertaking independent research, reasonable safety precautions and heeding travel warnings as supplied by other travel advisory services and current news events.
