The term “user” herein shall mean any person who chooses to install and use the App.
The App provides two kinds of services:
Nothing in the data provided by the App shall derogate from the information and instructions officially published by the Ministry or the Government of Jordan in various media; the App does not replace any official announcements or information regarding diagnosis or exposure by other means; in any case of discrepancy between the information provided by the App and the official instructions of the Ministry, the instructions of the Ministry or any other official source shall take precedence. The Service does not constitute medical advice, whether directly or indirectly, but is intended to alert users to their exposure to Coronavirus patients as soon as possible.
The App processes the GPS history and tracking data of the user to exhaust the user's GPS history complete with dates and times (hereinafter: the data). Collecting such data is vital to catering a comprehensive service herein specified, and enable the App to accomplish its objectives. By using the App and the service it provides, the user gives permission to App to collect said data.
The data collected by the App shall be stored starting from the date of installation, and not beforehand, unless the user gives permission to obtain the GPS history in the last 14 days from Google (if the option to store GPS history is on). Such data will be used to cross-reference the locations of confirmed patients that the user might have been exposed to prior to installation.
The data collected about users is only stored in the internal memory of the user’s mobile device. The data is not stored on the servers of the Ministry or any other entity.
Users who are diagnosed as Coronavirus patients (or their legal guardians) may allow their data to be exported to the Ministry in order to help identify exposed people who should enter home quarantine immediately.
The App may use trusted tools or third-party analytical software to automatically collect and use certain non-personal data that does not directly enable the Ministry or the App to identify the user. The types of non-personal, anonymized data the App may collect and use are the following: number of active users, engagements, devices and operating systems, used language, number of active users, GPS accuracy and logging behavior, answers to the exposure detection question, the detected exposure risk level, distance between patients and users during exposure and duration, application installation number and exposure detection time and patient’s location.
Positive diagnoses for Corona shall not be delivered through the App but only through an authorized medical entity. Users who receive notification through the App regarding their exposure to diagnosed patients should confirm this through the App.
For the purpose of this section, the Ministry shall include its employees, representatives and service providers.
Users shall have no claim or demand against the Ministry regarding any changes and to which they did not object by removing the App.
The services, content and data included in the App are intended for personal use only. Without derogating from the above, any commercial use is prohibited, in particular any abuse or any use that may corrupt or disrupt the data and the operation of the App.
