Anonymity of cases/images
The images uploaded to the website by Users must be provided anonymously so that the personal identity of each patient to whom they refer to is safeguarded (e.g. radiographic images and case notes). This applies to all images uploaded to the www.qura.tech website.
If the User becomes aware of cases in which he/she believes that himself/herself or a third person are reasonably identifiable, please contact QURA immediately at: email@example.com
The data that shall NOT appear on patient images uploaded by the User are:
- first name
- date of birth
- address, including full or partial post code
- telephone or fax numbers or contact information
- email addresses
- medical device identifiers (e.g. serial numbers)
- web addresses or internet protocol containing any links to the patient
- biometric data
- facial photograph or comparable image
- names of relatives
- date/name of the study
Furthermore, if a case is, for one reason or another, unique in such a way as to allow for the identification of an individual from the images alone, they must not be uploaded to the www.qura.tech website. This means that a case which, for example, has been covered by the media or shows particularly rare symptoms shall not be uploaded to the aforementioned website, unless specifically authorized. Likewise, any textual information accompanying the images uploaded by the User must also be free of identifying information and other unnecessary information that could help in identifying a patient.
