I test embedded systems and it is pretty much the same.
How about details relating to the contact, where/when/indoors/outdoors?It cannot be specific because behaviour of the radio part of Bluetooth varies a lot from model to model of phone.
The sensitivity isn't even, it will be noticeably less sensitive in some directions.
Wouldn't touch that with a very long sh*tty bargepole.....More updates. Almost farcical now!
Data retained in the uk database:
Also asked to provide the contact details of anyone they have been in close contact with.
- Full name
- date of birth
- NHS Number
- home postcode and house number
- telephone number and email address
- COVID-19 symptoms, including when they started and their nature
Oh, and that data is accessible by two external companies as well. Serco and Sitel.
The ‘best’ part though - that data is then retained for 20 years(!) if you’ve had symptoms, or 5 if you simply used the app, and ... you have no rights to ask for it to be deleted either. Wtf
You can read about it here direct from nhsx (page only accessible if you’re in UK).
