How SkinVision uses your data for Health and Research Purposes

Handling your data safely and securely is a priority for SkinVision. We want to make sure you are fully aware of how we collect and process personal data to support our health and research purposes. More specifically, we use your data for:

a. Health

To provide the SkinVision Services, we need to be able to securely handle your sensitive data. This means that we process your photo with our algorithms to look for irregular patterns commonly found in cancerous skin spots. We will store the photo on our servers so you can compare photos of lesions over time and monitor them for change. Furthermore, our in-house team of experts and dermatologists need this permission to check the photos for the purposes of quality control. If they detect any signs that need to be reviewed further, they will contact you and they will advise you on the next steps to take.

You can withdraw your permission for further processing of your data at any time by sending an email to If you withdraw your permission, it will no longer be possible for us to provide our services to you.

b. Research

All the photos that are processed and stored on our servers are anonymized and only used to help our technology become more accurate in detecting skin cancer, saving lives. If we find one of your photos to show a suspicious skin spot, we might reach out to ask for further information regarding the skin spot in the photo, i.e. access to a histopathology report. This information helps to further improve our service and it assists more people in detecting suspicious moles and other skin spots with increased accuracy.
