Terms of Use

Please read these Terms of Use ("Terms") carefully before using this site. By accessing and using the Data Sense Web Sites and Materials, you acknowledge and agree to abide by the following Terms of Use. If you do not agree to these Terms, do not use the Intel Web Sites or download any Materials.

Scope of Terms

The Data Sense Web Site and Materials are being offered as part of a research project conducted by Intel Corporation (“Intel”) to study and understand the social and practical significance of analysis tools, and what kinds of analysis tools can help individuals make sense of their data (the “Purpose”). The results of the study will be used to inform the innovation and design of information and communication technologies and services. In order to conduct this study, researchers have built an online research application called Data Sense that provides tutorials and examples and, if you choose, takes the data you upload, and helps you analyze that data and represent it in a variety of visual forms (the “ Data Sense Service” or “Service”). Subject to these Terms, you may use the Service and related tools in any way that you feel is most valuable to you personally. You might simply look at tutorials and examples, or you may choose to upload your own data and try an analysis for yourself using the tools provided.

These Terms of Use are applicable to all Data Sense Websites, whether a sponsored site, managed through a third party vendor or hosted by a third party (referred to hereafter as the "Web Sites"). These Terms also apply to any resources and tools provided through Intel Web Sites, including but not limited to developer tools, download areas, research areas, community forums, chat rooms, blogs, sharing sites and product information (“Materials”). These Terms apply to all the Data Sense Web Sites, both now and in the future.

Intel may provide activity or program specific Terms of Service, for example when Intel provides interactive Materials and/or enables User Generated Content. If so, to the extent that these Terms do not conflict with the program specific Terms of Service, the Terms herein remain in full force and effect.

Privacy

Intel is committed to respecting your privacy. Information submitted to Intel through forms on the Web Sites or Materials is governed according to Intel's Privacy Notice and as specifically set out herein.

Information Collected: Intel will collect the user name and password you create when opening your account, and your email address for the purpose of account recovery (“Account Information”), along with whatever data you choose to upload onto the application (“User Data”) for analysis by the Service. Intel will also collect aggregate patterns of your use of the Service —for example, whether you tended to use a certain analysis tool to understand sleep, but used other tools to understand exercise patterns. These patterns and trends are not stored with your Account Information. User may contact datasense_team@intel.com for further information on how to access their patterns of application use.

Information Use, Access and Controls: Whatever User Data you choose to upload onto the application will only be used for the Purpose. Your Account Information and User Data will not be shared by Intel with any third parties.

Our opt-in sharing feature enables you to share your User Data and collaborate with other users at various levels of anonymity, which you fully control and can change at any time. By default, your user name, raw data you upload, and associated metadata will only be visible to you, and will not be shared with other users. Our sharing feature only enables Data Sense users to share with other Data Sense users, either on an individual basis or as a whole community, but not the wider public. For any kind of data you upload to Data Sense, or generate on Data Sense, you can choose what level of sharing, if any, you would like to do for that specific kind of data. You can control who, if anyone, sees your presence on Data Sense, your uploaded data (such as number of steps taken on a certain date), metadata concerning what type of data you are working with (such as ‘sleep’ or ‘mood’ ), which analysis tools you used on you data, and any descriptions you might write concerning that data.

Any sharing activity that involves personally identifiable information is done on an opt-in basis. If you choose to share in this way, you will have an opportunity to review the materials selected for sharing before they are made available to those you identify for sharing. This means you can, on an opt-in basis, choose to share with others a short narrative about what you learned by analyzing the data, and how you analyzed that data, but not share the raw data itself. Data Sense contains a feature that allows users to make a limited number of queries that result in aggregations of anonymous User Data, including anonymized metadata. If you do not want some or all of your data to be used for this purpose, you can opt out of that aspect of Data Sense at any time. Data that is used for querying is stripped of all personally identifiable information, and users who submit queries only ever receive aggregate-level information. If you choose to use this feature, you will have an opportunity to review the materials selected for inclusion in anonymous aggregations. You can also stop sharing those materials at any time.

You can remove or delete your User Data through use of the tools provided to you with the Service, and/or you may cancel your account at any time. If you cancel your account, your Account Information and User Data will be deleted from Intel systems. Unless sooner deleted (or cancelled) by you, your Account Information and User Data will only be retained by Intel for the duration of the study and in no case longer than five (5) years. Intel’s analysis and conclusions from the User Data and the operation of the Service and application systems may be retained indefinitely.

If Intel researchers choose to publish the results of the study, they will do so using only aggregated, anonymized data and not User Data or any information linked to your Account Information.

Data Processing and Transfer: Intel may transfer Account Information and User Data to any Intel subsidiary worldwide for processing in accordance with the terms and conditions herein. Intel complies with the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor framework for off-line, online, and manual processing of personal data. In addition, processing of personal information among Intel affiliates is governed by the Intel Corporate Privacy Rules
