    The Service is intended for use by Aidian’s Customers such as medical centers, hospitals, healthcare organizations or healthcare professionals (“Customer”), to view and share instrument generated results e.g. patient data, to add result management related information, and to help quality control data management (“Result data”) and to train the personnel of the Customer (“Training data”). The Customer is the data controller of the Result data and the Training data. Aidian acts as a data processor in respect of such personal data. Therefore, please read the relevant data controller’s e.g. employer’s privacy notice for more information on your personal data processing.

    Aidian maintains the right to use data derived from the use of the Service, in an anonymized, consolidated and aggregated manner to improve, develop and modify the Service and to market services.

    In the event of termination, you must destroy or return at your own cost the Service, including all back-up copies and related documentation provided by Aidian.
