Quibim reiterates that the Studies are tools to assist the User, which have not been designed in any event to replace the analysis and diagnosis prepared by a medical professional.
Personal Data Protection
Preparation of Studies
Due to the characteristics of the Plataform and that the Studies are prepared using diagnostic imaging software, Quibim has adopted the following measures to ensure compliance with data protection legislation:
- Quibim uses data cleaning software on its Plataform which automatically removes metadata from the files to be uploaded by Users before they are received by Quibim’s servers. The data cleaning software removes metadata fields present in files that include personal data or information which may enable Quibim or any third party to access same.
- This process for cleaning metadata from the images is performed by a computer program installed on the Platform and executed directly on the User’s device, so that it is carried out before any type of information is sent to Quibim’s servers. Consequently, Quibim does not have access, not even incidentally, to any personal data contained in the files uploaded by Users to prepare the Studies.
- In this regard, when the files are sent to Quibim via the platform, the Software provides Users with a unique identification code for the files, so that they are able identify the Study prepared on the basis of same.
- When the files are uploaded to prepare the Study, Users may include a unique reference number enabling them to relate it to other Studies that may be done in the future. The User undertakes not to include any personal data (e.g. National Identity Document) in said reference number.
- In addition to storing files, Quibim stores persistent information in databases. Said information does not contain personal data, only reference codes, and also references to files that enable the management of the information. It is placed on record that the information included in the codes and references does not allow Quibim or any third party to link it with personal data through inverse processing of said codes or references.
In view of the above, Quibim does not have access at any time to personal data to prepare the Studies, and is therefore released from any liability in relation to same.
Consequently, the User will be solely responsible for any breach of data protection legislation during the use of the Platform.
The content of the Website (the “Content”) which includes, without limitation, texts, photographs, diagrams, images, icons, software, links and other audiovisual content and source codes are the intellectual property of Quibim, or of third parties who have assigned their use to Quibim.
