Terms Of Service

COVID BIG DATA maintains the site as a service to its visitors, subject to the following terms and conditions concerning the use of the site. When you use the site, you accept the Terms of Service, hereinafter called "the terms". If you do not agree to the terms you may not use the site.

Use of the site

COVID BIG DATA requires that its agreements be made with persons who are qualified to contract. As a patient you must be over the age of eighteen (18) years. In the case of a patient being under the age of eighteen (18) years, a parent or guardian must accept this agreement.

Services Provided

The services are offered on an "as is" basis and used by the patient solely at his or her own risk. COVID BIG DATA may, among other things withdraw, suspend or discontinue any functionality or feature of its services.

Network & Data Security

COVID BIG DATA stores data online and uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to provide users secure and private access. As part of the terms you agree to your information being stored in this location and accessd in this way. You can read about our Data Protection Policy here.

Data Sharing

The stated goal of this webiste is to make medication history available to scientists around the world. The data we release consists of a medication table, a patient table, and a table mapping patients to medications. In the patient table we store an integer unique identifier, a timestamp, an age range (as an integer so 10-19 is stored as 15), a disease severity - mild, moderate, severe, critical, an outcome - lived, died, pending, the 2 letter country code resolved from the user's IP address, and two SHA3_256 one way cryptosecure hashes representing IP address and the Browser String suitably padded with fixed but random data. The two hashes stored will allow researchers to identify data coming from the same source, but without any ability to reverse engineer that source. Hash functions are designed to be one way but are amenable to certain types of attack. We are confident the only way to reverse this hash data is with knowledge of the fixed random data and a rainbow table.

It is an explicit condition of supplying your data that you agree to its release in this format.

Privacy Policy
