About Us

The Data4Life solution shares the journey of citizens during the lifetime of a pandemic as a contributor to the collective effort to prevent further infection and saving lives.

The solution makes it easy for individuals to allow the use of personal data for the public good (‘data altruism’) in compliance with data protection and privacy regulations. Its superior user interface integrates with societal systems for retention, that address the fundamentals of data availability and concerns around digital surveillance.

The solution also supports individuals’ risk assessment and decision-making and thereby saves lives and helps society to a speedy economic and social recovery by “unlocking the paralysis”. It helps people make decisions that will benefit society. Longer term, the Data4Life solution can also help prevent future outbreaks and enable preventive care.
