Who owns the data?

All data shared through the CareMonkey application belongs to the profile owner. Profile owners create an Electronic Health Form or EHF. CareMonkey provides a service whereby an individual can share their EHF with an organisation, and the organisation can view this information in line with the purpose of the application.  For Scouts NSW, the purpose is to enable profile owners to share EHFs with the goal of electronically communicating consent and permission about an individual between the profile owner and Care Provider.

Care Providers, in this case Scouts NSW, can view the EHF with the aim of fulfilling their Duty of Care, but not interact with it in any other way, even to edit basic contact information. This remains within the responsibility and control of the profile owner.
