The term “user” herein shall mean any person who chooses to install and use the App.
The nature of the service
The App provides two kinds of services:
(1) For users – it collects information regarding their movement. The App examines the movement of users in relation to the movement of identified Coronavirus patients according to the information available to the Ministry of Health. This examination is intended to alert users to their possible exposure to Coronavirus patients.
(2) The use of the App will allow users, in case they are diagnosed as Coronavirus patients, to retrace their movement in the last 14 days prior to their diagnosis, i.e., the dates, the times, and the places where they have been. This is in order to help the Ministry of Health identify verified Coronavirus patients who came in contact with the user and to notify people who have been in any of these places and times with the user who is a verified Coronavirus patient, that they are required to enter home isolation immediately (hereinafter, “the Service”).
Note: Nothing in the information provided by the App shall derogate from the information and instructions officially published by the Ministry of Health 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 of Health, the instructions of the Ministry of Health 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 uses information about the user's location and the routes of his or her movement in order to create a detailed history of all the places where the user has been, the dates and times of his or her stay there and the proximity to other cell phone devices on which this app is installed (henceforth: "The Information"). Collecting this information is necessary for allowing the user to receive all service listed above and for the app to meet its objectives. By using the app and receiving the service, the user agrees to allow the app to collect the information as stated above.
Information gathered by the app will only be stored starting from the date that the app was installed on the device and not prior to that unless the user gives his or her individual approval to receive his or her location history via Google for the 14 preceding days (provided that the option to save locations was activated). This information will be used for cross-references vis-à-vis verified patients whose time of exposure was stored prior to installing the app.
The use of information
The information collected about each user is only stored in the internal memory of the user’s cellular device. The information is not stored on the servers of the Ministry of Health or any other entity.
Users who are diagnosed as Coronavirus patients (or their legal guardians) may allow their information to be transferred to the Ministry of Health in order to help identify verified Coronavirus patients and people who were exposed to them who should enter home isolation immediately and publish relevant information to the public. The use of information by the Ministry of Health for these purposes shall be made in accordance with the Privacy Declaration.
Positive diagnoses for Coronavirus 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 location and dates of patient exposure published on the website of the Ministry of Health.
For the purpose of this section, “The Ministry of Health” shall include its employees, representatives, and service providers.
Changes to the App
Users shall have no claim or demand against the Ministry of Health regarding any changes about which they have been informed and to which they did not object by removing the App.
