If Customer wishes to purchase any product or service made available through the Service ("Purchase"), Customer may be asked to supply certain information relevant to Customer’s Purchase including, without limitation, Customer’s credit card number, the expiration date of Customer’s credit card, Customer’s billing address, and Customer’s shipping information.
Customer represents and warrants that: (i) Customer has the legal right to use any credit card(s) or other payment method(s) in connection with any Purchase; and that (ii) the information Customer supplies to QuantActions is true, correct and complete.
By submitting such information, Customer grants QuantActions the right to provide the information to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of Purchases.
QuantActions reserves the right to refuse or cancel Customer’s order at any time for certain reasons including but not limited to: product or service availability, errors in the description or price of the product or service, error in Customer’s order, suspected fraud or an unauthorised or illegal transaction, or other reasons.
QuantActions is constantly updating QuantActions’ offerings of products and services on the Service. The products or services available on QuantActions’ Service may be mispriced, described inaccurately, or unavailable, and QuantActions may experience delays in updating information on the Service and in QuantActions’ advertising on other web sites. QuantActions cannot and does not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of any information, including prices, product images, specifications, availability, and services. QuantActions reserves the right to change or update information and to correct errors, inaccuracies, or omissions at any time without prior notice.
When Customer creates an account with us, Customer must provide QuantActions information that is accurate, complete, and current at all times. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of the Terms, which may result in immediate termination of Customer’s account on QuantActions’ Service.
Customer is responsible for safe guarding any passwords that Customer may use to access the Service and for any activities or actions under Customer’s password, whether Customer’s password is with QuantActions’ Service or a third-party service.
Customer agrees not to disclose Customer’s password to any third party. Customer must notify QuantActions immediately upon becoming aware of any breach of security or unauthorized use of Customer’s account.
Participation IDs (end user activation codes) can only be used for ONE individual. Reusing it is prohibited.
The Service and its original content, features and functionality are and will remain the exclusive property of QuantActions and its licensors. Some parts of the QuantActions pipeline have been inspired and may use parts of code and data from the following publications: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.isci.2022.104791, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.isci.2022.104792, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.isci.2021.102538, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.isci.2021.102159, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41746-019-0147-4. Where applicable, and under the Creative Commons license, ideas and implementations have been modified and adapted to fulfil QuantActions' requirements some of which are robustness, generalization, efficiency, security and privacy. The Service is protected by copyright, trademark, patent and other laws of both Switzerland and foreign countries. QuantActions’ trademarks, trade dress and other intellectual property may not be used in connection with any product or service without the prior written consent of QuantActions.
Publishing and releasing data to the public:
QuantActions strives to make science more transparent and thus more reliable and efficient. Holders of non-commercial/academic licenses must notify QuantActions of the digital object identifier (doi) of each publication derived from QuantActions data. Non-commercial/academic license holders must publish or release anonymized processed data to academic repositories within 5 years of the end of data collection. Permission to extend this period may be granted on reasonable request. Failure to comply with this article allows QuantActions to release anonymized processed data to the academic community.
Anonymous processed data includes all non-personal data provided via QuantActions services, including the ‘Public ID’ (not to be confused with ‘Participation ID’). The ‘Public ID’ links data sets of the same individual in order to transparently link different studies and to enable re-use of data while still ensuring the individual’s anonymity. The ‘Public ID’ must never be disclosed to the public together with any data relating to an identifiable person (e.g. name, e-mail address, phone number, etc.)
Neither the ‘Participant ID’ nor raw data must ever be released to the public without explicit permission of QuantActions and the competent ethics committee.
Data deletion requests:
If an individual participating in an academic licensee study submits an account deletion request to QuantActions, we will delete the individual’s data from the QuantActions server within 30 days. If the individual specifically requests the deletion of their data from the academic license holder as well, QuantActions will forward the data deletion request to the relevant academic license holder and request the deletion of all data that has been shared for that individual. The academic license holder shall promptly comply with this request. While QuantActions will make every reasonable effort to assist in the data deletion process, the final responsibility for data removal lies with the academic license holder. Data that has already been made available to the public in anonymized form, such as through publication or releasing to academic repositories, is exempt from deletion.
Data access and data sharing:
Access to raw data, and processing of raw data, is strictly restricted to non-commercial/academic customers processing these data for the purpose of non-profit, non-commercial academic research only. It is the responsibility of the customer to restrict raw data access to only the individuals holding a QuantActions account. It is not permitted to share any raw data with any individuals not directly involved with the study, whether such individuals are within the same institution or with another entity. Raw data may not be disclosed to any other entity.
If a non-commercial/academic license holder needs to exchange raw data with any other entity, written permission must be obtained in advance from QuantActions. Such permission requires the conclusion of a data sharing agreement that clearly documents what data are being shared, why the data are being shared, and how the data may be used. At its sole discretion, QuantActions may impose additional charges for concluding such agreements.
Compliance with regulations:
Holders of an academic license must follow all relevant rules and regulations when conducting health-related research involving human subjects including but not limited to, obtaining informed consent from participants or, in the case of minors, their parent or guardian. Unless otherwise exempt under applicable laws and regulations, holders of an academic license must obtain and maintain compliance with IRB approval or equivalent review by an independent ethics committee before beginning their research. The holder of an academic license is responsible for maintaining accurate documentation in this regard. Although QuantActions does not require evidence of compliance, the responsibility for meeting these obligations rests with the academic licensee. Failure to comply with these obligations may result in a breach of the terms of the academic license agreement with QuantActions and may lead to the suspension or termination of the license. By using the QuantActions services, holders of an academic license acknowledge and agree to these obligations and agree to comply with them as part of their research activities involving our platform.
QuantActions’ Service may contain links to third-party web sites or services that are not owned or controlled by QuantActions.
QuantActions has no control over, and assumes no responsibility for, the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party web sites or services. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that QuantActions 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 of or reliance on any such content, goods or services available on or through any such web sites or services.
QuantActions may terminate or suspend Customer’s account immediately, without prior notice or liability, if Customer breaches the Terms.Upon termination, Customer’s right to use the Service will immediately cease.
In no event shall QuantActions, nor its directors, employees, partners, agents, suppliers, or affiliates, be liable for any indirect, incidental, special, consequential or punitive damages, including without limitation, loss of profits, data, use, goodwill, or other intangible losses, resulting from (i) Customer’s access to or use of or inability to access or use the Service; (ii) any conduct or content of any third party on the Service; (iii)any content obtained from the Service; and (iv) unauthorized access, use or alteration of Customer’s transmissions or content, whether based on warranty, contract, tort (including negligence) or any other legal theory, whether or not QuantActions have been informed of the possibility of such damage, and even if a remedy set forth herein is found to have failed of its essential purpose.
Customer’s use of the Service is at Customer’s sole risk. The Service is provided on an "AS IS" and "AS AVAILABLE" basis.
