How will the data collected be used and where will be it be stored?

Our only goal is to keep Sonoma County as safe as possible. Anonymous responses will be stored on IBM’s secure public cloud for businesses. The information will be stored for 45 days and will only be accessible to COVID-19 designated personnel in the Sonoma County Department of Health Services.

The information that employers and employees provide will be collected and processed by the Sonoma County Health Department. This data, in aggregate, will be provided to the California Department of Health. The app does not collect or store any information that could identify users. It does not track user location.

The Sonoma County Public Health Officer will utilize this anonymous data along with other COVID-19 statistical data to help determine if mitigation measures are being effective in controlling the virus.

No information will be shared for commercial purposes.
