What is meta-data and why do we share it?

Piano segregates data into different sections in different databases to ensure data access policies are enforced. Sensitive data never leave the customers’ the Piano instance on customer premises or in the customer’s private cloud. Meta-data is non-sensitive data that includes usage statistics, configuration of Piano workflows, and configuration of analytic tools within Piano. Meta-data is used in quality control processes, verification of licences, and to facilitate collaboration.

Evidentli has taken multiple steps to ensure that no sensitive information can ever be erroneously included in meta-data. This includes automated checks on every Piano instance, automated checks on Evidentli’s servers and manualy checks by Evidentli data scientists and engineers.

Who do we share meta-data with?

Piano meta-data is shared with other users of the instance they were generated. Piano instances without the Private Hub add-on product, also share meta-data with Evidentli and Evidentli reserves the right to share such meta-data with other customers and users.

Can meta-data sharing be turned off?

Collaboration is a critical part of medical research and data analysis and meta-data is required to facilitate collaboration. Meta-data is within a Piano instance is always shared among users and projects from the same organisation.

Meta-data sharing outside an organisation can be turned off using the Private Hub add-on product. To enquire about Private Hub or to find out if your organisation uses it, contact sales@evidentli.com
