Who is responsible for the management of data protection at Mi-Trial
MI-TRIAL hosts its Mi-Trial app and cloud-based software using Amazon Web Services (AWS). For details on AWS and their Privacy Notice, visit https://aws.amazon.com/privacy/
Mi-Trial technical architecture also includes use of the following systems:
● Google Firebase – for push notifications
● AWS Cognito – for secure storing of your data, and authentication/login
● Microsoft SQL Server Express – for storing setup data for the Mi-Trial application and web portal
● AWS Elastic Beanstalk – Serving the mobile front-end applications
What sort of personal data do we collect and hold?
The Mi-Trial system is designed to hold minimal amounts of data about you. For security purposes and to verify your identity, three data points are held for all users of the system (trial organisations and participants):
● Name (First Name and Last Name)
● Email address
● Phone number – this is for use of 2-factor authentication (2FA)
We collect one additional data point for participants, to ensure we can verify your identity if needed:
Your personal data is held securely using AWS Cognito, which also is used for authenticating your logins using 2-factor authentication. For details of Cognito, visit https://aws.amazon.com/cognito/
The web portal will also display a schedule of your visits to your trial organisation, displaying your name and cascade of appointments.
Any data you enter about medication, symptoms or other in your Events Diary in Mi-Trial, is not sent to your trial organisation. The data is not accessible by MI-TRIAL or your trial team, and is simply your personal diary of events you may wish to share at a visit.
