Privacy policy

Vaximap (accessed at https://vaximap.org/) is an online tool owned by Vaxine Limited and operated by Querque Limited (“we” / “us” / “our”) under licence.

This notice provides details of the information we collect when you use Vaximap. Please read it carefully to understand the restrictions on the information you can upload and how we will use it.

Information about patients

You must only upload postcodes and ID numbers of patients. (ID numbers must not identify or reveal any particular patient.)

You must not upload any information that is capable of identifying an individual (whether alone or in combination with any other information you upload). This includes names, addresses and NHS numbers, for example.

We do not knowingly collect or process any patient personal data because we cannot identify any individual from a postcode and an ID number alone.

For transparency (although not required by data protection laws):

Security and encryption

Any information you upload to Vaximap is transmitted via an encrypted connection (HTTPS). The information we share with Microsoft is also encrypted.

Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

Vaximap is provided on an “as is” and “as available” basis. Although we make reasonable efforts to update Vaximap and to ensure it operates effectively, except as required by law we give no warranty, representation or guarantee, express or implied: (a) as to the quality, content, availability or uptime of Vaximap; or (b) that any routes generated using Vaximap are accurate, complete, up-to-date or fit for purpose.

We will also not be liable to you for any loss of information which you upload to Vaximap (or otherwise provide to us), or for any loss arising from the deletion of, or the failure to upload or to store, any such information.

We do not exclude or limit in any way our liability to you where it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or the negligence of our employees, agents or subcontractors and for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation. If you require any advice on your legal rights, you can refer to www.adviceguide.org.uk.

We exclude any liability for unforeseen loss or damage incurred by you in connection with Vaximap, in connection with the use, inability to use, or results of the use of Vaximap, however caused. Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if both we and you knew it might happen.

We have no liability to you for any (i) loss of profit, sales or revenue; (ii) loss of business; (iii) business interruption; (iv) loss of business opportunity, goodwill or reputation; or (v) indirect or consequential loss or damage.

Availability of Vaximap

Vaximap is designed to be operated on a wide range of operating systems. However, we do not guarantee that Vaximap can be accessed and used on all computers or devices, nor do we guarantee that Vaximap is available in all geographic locations.

Although we try to ensure that Vaximap will always be available and uninterrupted, we cannot guarantee it. For example, we may need suspend, withdraw or restrict the availability of Vaximap for technical and/or operational reasons. Where we are able to do so, we will try to give you reasonable notice of this.

We are not responsible for issues relating to the internet generally, such as broadband availability, connection speed and other matters outside of our control which may affect the quality and availability of Vaximap, and your ability to use it.

Information you upload to Vaximap

You are solely responsible for any information you upload to Vaximap.

You represent and warrant to us that any information you upload complies with these Terms (including our acceptable use restrictions) and our privacy policy. This means you will be responsible for any loss or damage we suffer as a result of your breach of warranty.

You must have obtained all necessary rights, consents and licences with regard to any information you upload to Vaximap. This means that you cannot submit anything that is subject to any proprietary rights, unless you are entitled to do so.

When you upload information to Vaximap, you grant us a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to use that information to generate a route and provide it to you.

Responsibility for software vulnerabilities

While we take reasonable measures to ensure Vaximap is secure, we cannot guarantee that it will be secure, or free from bugs or viruses. You should therefore take your own precautions in relation to security when you use it.

You must not:

If you breach this section, you would commit a criminal offence. We will report any such breach to the relevant law enforcement authorities and co-operate with those authorities by disclosing your identity to them.

To the fullest extent permitted by law, we will not be liable to you for any loss or damage you suffer as a result of a distributed denial-of-services attack, virus, or other technologically harmful material that may infect your computer or device equipment, computer programs, apps, data or other proprietary material due to your use of Vaximap.

Our intellectual property rights

All intellectual property rights in Vaximap, and any updates to it (whether currently in existence or created in the future, and wherever they exist in the world), belong to us or our licensors. By using Vaximap you do not acquire any rights in it.

You understand that your use of Vaximap does not create any of your own intellectual property rights in or to Vaximap, or in any outputs from your use of Vaximap (including any routes generated on your behalf).

Unless you have our written permission, you must not copy, cut and paste, e-mail, reproduce, publish, distribute, redistribute, broadcast, transmit, modify, adapt, edit, abstract, create derivative works of, store, archive, publicly display, sell or in any way commercially exploit any functions, features, concepts, content, data or other information on or relating to Vaximap (or any part of it).

If you do not comply with this restriction, your right to use Vaximap will end immediately and you must, at our option, return or delete any extracts, screenshots, copies or otherwise which you have made in breach of it.

Acceptable use restrictions

You must:

Updates or modifications

We may make updates or modifications to improve the functionality of Vaximap, to enhance performance, reflect changes to users' needs, address security issues or for other purposes.

We reserve the right to make these updates or modifications and will not be liable to you for any resulting loss of information or data.

Changes to these terms

We may amend these Terms (or our privacy policy) from time to time. Please check them regularly to ensure you understand the terms that apply at that time.

Responsibility for external websites and services

Vaximap may contain links to other websites and apps which are not provided by us. We are not responsible for these websites and apps, and have not checked and approved their content nor their privacy policies (if any).

Linking to Vaximap

You may link to Vaximap, provided you do so in a way that is fair and legal and does not damage our reputation or take advantage of it.

You must not establish a link to Vaximap:

The website or app in which you are linking must comply in all respects with these Terms (including our acceptable use restrictions).

Vaximap must not be framed on any other website or app without our prior consent. We reserve the right to withdraw linking permission without notice.

Dealing with others

We may transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms to another organisation. We will ensure that the transfer will not affect your rights under these Terms. You may not transfer your rights under these Terms to another person.

Only you and we can enforce these Terms. They do not confer any rights on anyone else who is not party to them.

General

Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.

Even if we delay in enforcing these Terms, we can still enforce them later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these Terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this agreement between us, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date.

These Terms are governed by English law (except that if you live in a country other than England, including Northern Ireland and Scotland, there may be certain mandatory applicable laws of your country which apply for your benefit and protection in addition to or instead of certain provisions of English law).

If either of us wishes to bring legal proceedings, we both agree we must do so in the English courts (except that if you are a resident of Northern Ireland you may bring proceedings in Northern Ireland, and if you are resident of Scotland, you may bring proceedings in Scotland).

These Terms were last updated in March 2021.
