Collection of data

The UKPDS Risk Engine collects only the data that you enter into it and that data is used only for the purpose of calculating the risk results and presenting them to you. The data is not stored locally and not transmitted outside of the device it is entered on at any time.

The software offers you the ability to copy, print and save the data and results locally. If used, the data saved is not personally identifiable and it is not uploaded to our servers. We will not use or share your information with anyone.

The UKPDS Risk Engine does not directly use third party services to collect information used to identify you, as a user, however where the application is distributed via Apple App Store or Google Play Services these may collect such information. In such cases that data will be governed by their own privacy policies.

If you choose to use our application, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation to this policy.
