Your user account

The analytics that a user sees is determined by their professional role in healthcare and their organisation. We determine your role using information provided when you apply for an account. Each request for a user account is checked for accuracy by a member of the project before access is granted. If approved, you will be given a link to a KeyCloak page to log in, and then gain an authenticated token to access the dashboards. KeyCloak is user authentication software https://www.keycloak.org/; our KeyCloak server is hosted at The University of Manchester.

Analytical results are provided to you in your professional capacity because a practice or area you work with participates in (provides electronic health data for) the project. If you choose to extract any content, for example printing a graph, you must treat it in accordance with your common law duty of confidentiality and do not take it out of your workplace.

For the avoidance of any doubt, in consideration of the disclosure of Confidential Information by the research project to the Recipient (e.g. a dashboard user), the Recipient shall treat as strictly confidential and not divulge to any third party any of the Confidential Information and shall not make use of any such Confidential Information without the prior written consent from the ACTION project other than for the project’s research purpose in accordance with these terms. ‘Confidential Information’ in this notice means any and all knowledge, know-how, information and techniques not publically known, disclosed to the Recipient in connection with the use of the dashboard including but not limited to research data, databases, software, bioinformatics tools, specifications, plans, drawings, prototypes, models, documents, recordings, instructions, manuals, papers, or other materials of any nature whatsoever including all information provided hereunder.

Personal data will not be passed to any recipients outside the research project or The University of Manchester. Aggregated information, including how users used their accounts, will be used to publish the study findings.
