Please read, understand and acknowledge these policies in order to use MEDGIC
What data do we collect?
After initial installation, you will have to fill in your biodata profile, which is stored locally in your phone. The data we collect at this point are:
- Gender (either male or female)
- Your age (discrete number)
- Your country (we kept this non specific, so you can interpret this however you want)
- Your ethnicity (again, we kept this extremely non specific)
At each attempt, you will take a photo of the target skin condition. Please do not take photos which contain sensitive and personal information - such as photos of your face or those that contain identifying content. This is something which we cannot control. Image processing is then done locally on your phone and the result is uploaded to our server for AI analysis, along with a copy of your locally stored biodata. We neither require nor capture your geolocation for submission. If you need to delete your biodata, simply clear cache and uninstall Medgic.
User submitted data are only used by our AI to derive a more accurate prediction. Data is not used for discrimination or to deny services to any particular groups of people.
Why we collect your data, and on what grounds
We are of the view that as we are unable to trace you back from your provided data given that we do not require login information (and hence we do not request or receive any sensitive personal information such as name, email, address, social security number, contact number etc), your uploaded images are already considered pseudonymized but we may further process the data to further anonymize it.
We use collected data for research - to improve the accuracy, reliability and stability of our AI technology so that one day our capabilities can be used to tackle global medical challenges. Your data is pseudonymized and anonymized for this purpose. By using our services, you explicitly consent to the images being processed for the purposes of the provision of the services and to be used anonymously for the purposes of research, testing of our services and to advance the interests of Medgic. As such, your images may be reviewed by our employees or third-party consultants who work for us and who are bound by strict confidentiality.
We integrate social media like/share buttons which allow you to share references to Medgic. These social media extensions may process your personal data when you choose to do so. Medgic does not control and is not responsible for, the processing of personal data by these networks.
Data provided to us are stored on secure cloud servers operated by trusted major companies. These servers may not be fixed to a certain specific location, but are all held to similarly high standards. We will take the appropriate measures to prevent unauthorised access and/or misuse of your data. Consequently, your personal information may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside your country. It may also be handled by staffs or by other third party service providers. We take reasonable steps to ensure your data is handled securely. By using our services, you acknowledge and consent to this.
Medgic will periodically destroy or de-identify your collected data once it is no longer required for the purpose or purposes for which it was collected.
Data of children
Our service can only be used when you have reached the age of twenty one (21) years or older.
Your access to your data
As we do not require or collect login information, you do not have an account existing with us. This is a form of privacy protection. However, if you do not want access to our services anymore, we also cannot delete your account, because there is not any to begin with. There is no way we can trace any of your data back to you. It is a one-way data flow. Your collected data would have been pseudonymized in the sea of databases or could have been destroyed if not flagged for research, and hence we cannot find, delete or retrieve it for you.
As such, if you feel that you need to terminate our services, please simply stop using the application.
If at anytime you have concerns, please stop using our services immediately and contact us. If you are unable to accept these terms, please stop using our services.
