Terms of use


The European Patient Identity Management (EUPID) system is a tool for managing identities in different research contexts, operated by the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH (AIT). Please read these Terms of Use (“Terms”) carefully before using EUPID. Your access to and use of EUPID is conditioned on your acceptance of and compliance with these Terms. These Terms apply to all persons who access or use EUPID.

Links to other web sites

EUPID may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by AIT. AIT has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third party web site or services. You further acknowledge and agree that AIT shall not be responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damage or loss caused or alleged to be caused by or in connection with use or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services

Governing law

These terms shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Austria, without regard to its conflict of law provisions. Our failure to enforce any right of these Terms will not be considered a waiver of those rights. If any provision of these Terms is held to be invalid or unenforceable by a court, the remaining revisions of these Terms will remain in effect. These Terms constitute the entire agreement between AIT regarding EUPID, and supersede and replace any prior agreements we might have between us regarding EUPID.

Changes of the terms of use

AIT reserves the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace these Terms at any time. If a revision is material, AIT will try to provide at least 30 days notice prior to any new terms taking effect. What constitutes a material change will be determined at our sole discretion. By continuing to access or use EUPID after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised terms. If you do not agree to the new terms, please stop using EUPID.

Usage of EUPID tools, identity data and pseudonyms

You are allowed to use the EUPID only in the stipulated manner. Credentials provided to you must not be shared with other persons. Source code of the EUPID tools must not be changed. Unhashed or unecrypted data must not be transmitted to the EUPID pseudonymization service. Identifiers provided by the EUPID service (EUPID pseudonyms) must not be used outside the context they were generated for. The relation of identification data to corresponding EUPID pseudonyms must not be provided to unauthorized persons. EUPID pseudonyms generated for different contexts must not be linked except within the EUPID system.
