Users are required to register and create a user account to use the CanRisk tool and the web-services. Registration data is used to broadly track the usage, enable sufficient resources are provisioned and to keep users informed of CanRisk news.
Information entered into the CanRisk Tool (e.g. pedigree data, risk factors) only leaves the web browser when a risk calculation is run. To run the risk calculation the data is sent to our server machines. The individual's names in the pedigree are not sent to the CanRisk servers. On completion of the calculations the data transferred is removed from the server.
Data transferred is protected when using this web site by standard encryption techniques using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) technology.
Support requests are sent to the CanRisk service desk that is hosted on the Atlassian Cloud. When sending support requests do not send sensitive or patient identifiable data. Data should be sent in an anonymised form.
