IF YOU ARE NOT TAKING PART IN OUR STUDY, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM DOWNLOADING AND INSTALLING THE APP AS IT IS INTENDED FOR USE ONLY ON DEDICATED DEVICES WE PROVIDE WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF A MEDICAL STUDY.
Data we collect via the App
To conduct the study, we collect, analyze, process and store data as indicated in the ICF. We ask that you do not disclose any personal data when you record yourself. Please note: The App does not send us any data that identifies you personally. Each dedicated device is marked with a unique identification number assigned by us, so, while we gather data you provide us, we do not really know who you are. Once you receive the dedicated device, your user account will be already logged in. No registration is needed as the device will be used solely for the purposes of the study. The devices will be locked so that they cannot be used for any other purpose. The App will be updated automatically with every update we release on Google Play. You are not required to use your personal device or any other device other than the dedicated device we provide.
Use of data
We collect the data that you submit via the App for use in our clinical studies.
Sharing of data
We may share your data – including your voice recordings - with our research partners, including the hospitals and clinics in which we conduct the study and their staff (Physicians, nurses, study coordinators etc.), the Contract Research Organization (CRO) assisting us in the studies, their subcontractors such as statisticians and other partners that are part of the study. However, any data leaving the hospital will always be marked with your unique number and no personally identifiable information will be shared.
Your data is stored temporarily in your device. Once you upload it to our servers, it is deleted from your device. In addition to temporarily storing the data on the device you hold for the duration of the study, for backup purposes we will upload the data we collect to Amazon Cloud Service in the US. The data will be marked with the unique identification number, so it will not identify you personally, and be available only to us, as mentioned above.
Data security and retention
The data we collect via the App will be stored for at least 6 years and may be used for further research studies as approved by the institutional review board (IRB)/ethics (Helsinki) committee. We implement measures to reduce the risks of damage, loss of data and unauthorized access or use of data, however, although efforts are made to secure your personal data, we cannot guarantee its absolute protection.
The App does not diagnose, monitor nor offer any medical advice or opinion.
We may amend this Policy from time to time. The latest version will be available on Google Play and we will notify you about any amendment we make. We encourage you to read this Policy periodically. Should you not approve of such amendments, please refrain from further use of the App. This may result in the termination of your participation in the study.
Should you have any questions or suggestions concerning this Policy, you may contact us through our email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to respond in timely manner.
