  5. A. PREFACE

    DICOM Library allows its users to upload DICOM files to DICOM Library servers. After saving the uploaded files, the user gets:
    • a "Management" link through which the uploaded file can be managed,
    • a "Download" link through which the file can be downloaded,
    • a "View" link, which allows to view files over the internet,
    • and a "Delete" link, which allows the user to remove the uploaded file from the server.

    B. UPLOAD RULES

    Users are permitted to upload only DICOM files WITHOUT PERSONAL DATA located ON PICTURE, ON VIDEO, IN DICOM SR TEXT, IN DICOM PDF's or in any other Tags not listed as automatically anonymized to DICOM Library servers. Uploaded information and data may be used only for reviewing, research or teaching.

    Before uploading files, DICOM Library provides DICOM tags Anonymity. It means that DICOM files are anonymized before they are uploaded, so DICOM Library servers do not receive this private information.

    DICOM Library Anonymity service allows the users to NOT distribute Patient, Institution and Physicians private information that is usually stored within the DICOM file. However, private information may be stored in other Tags and/or in the Image or Video content of the DICOM file. Therefore, a user always remains responsible for the information s/he distributes.

    We do not guarantee that all Tags will be entirely anonymous. If a user finds some anonymity issues (e.g. finds any private information) in any file, which is located in DICOM Library, s/he must immediately contact the Data Protection Officer dpo@dicomlibrary.com.
